When I heard I had been selected to give a 20min talk at the Open Show LA, I was thrilled. The Open Show would be held at the DNJ gallery at the Bergamot Station in Santa Monica where I currently have prints as part of the LACP members show. It’s a great exhibit curated by January Parkos Arnall and I had missed the opening because my dad got married the same day. So I now would have the opportunity to see it as well as talk about the Locked-in series – not to mention go to Los Angeles! When introducing me, the producers Richard S. Chow and Jonas Yip added that I held the record for “Biggest Commute” to come to the Open Show – I’ll have to see if that helps me cope when I crash on my return from the jet lag! 😉
It was a wonderful evening and I’m so happy to have been part of it! There were 5 other presenters who were absolutely great to listen to: Dotan Saguy (Cuba Changing), Amy Kanka Valadarsky (Between Here and Then), Cassandra Pavloukos (Bodies In Motion), Louis Kravitz (Kolkata morning) and Mae Koo (Shadow World). Everybody in the audience was amazing and it was great to have a chance to chat with everyone afterwards. All in all, a fantastic night!!
