Holiday Displays in Rear Curtain
Yes, that is my photograph above gracing the cover of a magazine! I am extremely excited to announce that my series “Holiday Displays of New York” has been published in the latest issue of the visual storytelling magazine and website Rear Curtain. This short series was completed last year during the Holiday season, and while the displays may have changed the intention and sentiment behind my photographs have not. Of course it is also entirely appropriate they should be published at this time of year. Working with the Rear Curtain team on this was as simple a process as there could be. I could not have asked for better; indeed I am very pleased to be associated with this magazine.
Rear Curtain is a genuine photographic story-tellers magazine, filled with work that is of a very high caliber. In fact the quality is increasing with every issue as more and more people realize that they can submit their photographic series and stories to them. If you are looking for such a venue I urge you to go for it. Their mission is one I whole-heartedly support:
life people stories
At its heart, Rear Curtain is about storytelling. Images hold the potential to share some of the most powerful stories that connect us no matter where in the world we live. Finding stories that link people to one another and that reflect how we are all the same can make the world a better place. Through sharing our lives and those of the people around us–our family, friends, neighbors, and our community–we can move others to new points of view by showing what we all have in common regardless of race, culture, religion or geography. These stories can improve understanding and influence behavior, all with the hope of–in some way–changing the future.
Our mission is to be a place for emerging visual storytellers to share the stories that are important to them and also to be a resource of learning tools for those who wish to advance their storytelling skills.
I’d like to thank the whole team over there, Ray Ketcham, Matthew Connors, Sabrina Henry, and Stuart Sipahigil, for supporting my photography. I’d also like to thank my family, friends, and you, the people who visit this blog for also supporting my photography through comments, and timely confident boosts or critiques.
