Through the month of September and early October, the Greensboro Center for Visual Artist gallery exhibited "Art: Unauthorized," a collection of graffiti and alt-art that I was lucky enough to have a few traditional b&w photography prints in.

For October's "First Friday", the gallery curator, Kristy Thomas, invited the exhibiting artists to do a series of art demonstrations. Melissa Stanley put together an alt-fashion photo shoot with Myself along with fellow photographers John Ryan, Evan, and John Read. Melissa, Kelly Keodara, and Theresa Ortiz modeled. Kyle Britt and Brie Reeder volunteered their services as Hair and makeup stylists. And Bob Smithy with At The Ritz Costume Rental provided wardrobe.

I was invited to assist with videoing the event. It wasn't a paid gig, but it's hard to turn down a free invite to a high-end gentlemens club.. Especially when your camera is also invited.. ha.

Big Shot - Valeria


Model: Valeria Kronprinsessan
Location: Elsewhere Artist Collaborative

The Big Shots: Andy Warhol Polaroids exhibit is currently traveling between the Duke Nasher, UNCG Weatherspoon, and UNC Ackland art museums. Valeria and I caught up to it while at the Weatherspoon.

While I respect his work, I've never been a huge Warhol fan. But I really liked the exhibit and was intrigued by how it focused as much attention on the Polaroid Big Shot camera he loved as much as the artist himself.

While at my Dad's house a few weeks later, I noticed a recognizable shape sticking out of a old box in the kitchen. Sure-enough it was an original Big Shot. As it turns out, my Dad shot with one when he was young and had recently pulled it out of storage. It sat for decades in an old barn at my grandparents house and needed a decent cleaning, but was otherwise fully fictional.

After acquiring some new (Fujifilm) instant pack film and the proper flashcubes (the Big Shot only works with "Magicubes"), who else better to model than Valeria and at Greensboro's Elsewhere Artist Collaborative, no less (something of a local "Factory").
