EveryMan, Woman and Child Series

Mother and Son, 2009

This image is the start of a new series I call, EveryMan, Woman and Child.
The concept of this series started last year when I began to observe how the entire human race was going through tremendous upheaval. We are asked to do more with less in the business world. Some of us have no jobs. The people that have jobs are being asked to do the work that normally two or three people would have done. Our thoughts and ideas are going through radical changes as well. Everyday we are asked to question our past and adapt to the new. New political leaders, new forms of communicating, new economy, new energy, new wars, new ideas of what is a family and marriage, new science, new ways of reinventing ourselves in the work place, new reduced salaries and benefits and so on and so on.

Obviously these changes have been coming on for awhile, but it just seems like we are finally waking up to the fact that we are undergoing a radical transformation inwardly and outwardly at a much faster pace. We are being asked to become more modular and flexible. The images in this series represent the adaptation we are being ask to endure to survive.

The Sketchbook Project

The Sketchbook Project, 2009 - "Artists I Know or Knew"

Walter Gabrielson, 1974 in his studio with his plane.

Tom Wudl, 1974 in his studio with is art and his cat.

Scott Grieger, 1974 in his studio.

Stephan Von Huene, 1974 at CalArts

Patrick Hogan, 1974 in his studio in Los Angeles, CA.

The Sketchbook Project is a traveling show of over 2,000 moleskin art sketchbooks. The project is sponsored by The art House Co-op of Atlanta, GA. I felt this was a good opportunity to exhibit photos I shot of artists in their studio. My photographic essay "Artist in their Studio" started in 1973. I began taking photographs of artists at Cal Arts, Valencia, CA where I was finishing up a Bachelor's degree. This project was expanded after graduating in '73. Through the help of Peter Plagens, I was able to contact prominent artists in the L.A. scene. These photos have never been published until now. The project continued when I later moved to New York, Conneticut and finally Massachusetts.

This is the cover of the notebook featuring Gloria Kisch, 1974, in her studio with her sculpture.

Peter Plagens, 1974, at home in Los Angeles, CA, with his painting in the background.

Emerson Wolffer, 1974 at his home in Pasadena, CA.

Claire Falkenstein, 1974, in her sculpture studio.

Alfred M. Licea at his drawing board in NYC.

The Sketchbook Project is coming to Boston tonight at the Laconia Gallery on Harrison St., Boston, 5:30-8:00. The Art House Co-op that is based in Atlanta is sponsoring this 9 city tour of over 2,000 sketchbooks from artists all over the US. The following are samples from my book, "Artists I Know or Knew".
