Here's an interesting fellow that I'm going to keep an eye out for -


I think he plays, and playing to discover is to me what art is about. In this show, his playing is with daguerreotype technique. Another time he used leaves as printing paper.


The article:

Have you run across any photographers lately who made you stop and remember their names and the images?

I can't think of any new ph0tographers of recent witnessing right now but it's something I'll keep in mind this thread if I stumble upon a new notable photographer whose work catches my eye.

Sometimes the photographers on the Beautiful Animals thread are plain fabulous, but I don't manage to retain their names in my memory. Except for Izzie!

This fellow isn't new to me - I saw his show at the Humboldt State University First Street Gallery back in 2005 and was very drawn to his work. But, since then, I'd forgotten his name.

Now I'm trying to clean out my stuff, and I still can't manage to toss the brochure from that show.

His name is Mark Abrahamson, and the (aerial photography) show was titled Montana Legacy. He had been commissioned by the Art Museum of Missoula to create a body of work for their collection dealing with the environmental degradation caused by exploitative development practices during the past 100-plus years in Montana.
That's a quote from the brochure.

Here's the website -

I love one called
Butte 5.30. 2001
2001, chromogenic print
(I can only see it on the brochure - but I'm doing without adobe flash for a while)

I remember the large photographs as both interesting and beautiful in their way.
