Burning Man 2015

Burning Man 2015

Burning Man has never really appealed to me. Maybe because I become uneasy at the thought of large crowds, let alone a really large crowd in a place that Trish and I have been camping in for decades. Camping without a crowd, or without seeing … Continue reading

2015 Somerville Toy Camera Festival

122694#32(IbexDunes)

I’m excited that my image “Ibex Dunes” juried into the 2015 Somerville Toy Camera Festival, in Somerville, Massachusetts, Juried by Aline Smithson creator of the Lenscratch Blog.

Ibex Dunes was slated to be exhibited at the Nave Gallery, but due to logistical issues was moved to the Nave Gallery Annex at the last minute.

The Nave Gallery Annex is located at:

53 Chester St, Somerville, MA (Davis Square)

Opening Reception is Thursday September 10th 6:00 – 8:00 PM

The exhibition runs from September 10th – 27th 2015

Ibex Dunes is located in Death Valley National Park and was created with a modified Kodak “Fun Saver Panoramic 35” disposable camera reloaded with Kodak Tri-X film.

More information on my photographic art can be found at my website www.deonreynolds.com

Capital City Arts Initiative Show

I have a show, “Tow’ring High” at the Capital City Arts Initiative in Carson City, Nevada.

July 8th  –  November 15th , 2015

Carson City Community Center’s Sierra Room
851 E. William Street, Carson City, Nevada
Open to the public during City meetings, most M – Th evenings

Every image in this show was created with a modified Kodak “Fun Saver Panoramic 35” disposable camera reloaded with Kodak Tri-X 35mm film. I process the film in my own darkroom, scan the negatives and print digital archival prints on Hahnemühle Fine Art Pearl paper with an Epson 7890 wide format printer. Trish and I cut, assemble and paint all our own frame moulding, plus we cut the glass and mattes then assemble. In other words we create absolutely everything, down to the very last detail!

Here is the show, better yet, go see it yourself, they look so much better in person.

And, they would look even better on your wall! Support the arts, buy art!

Renown Healing Arts

03_Deon_Reynolds

“Stillwater Windmill”, photographed on film with a Kodak “Fun Saver Panoramic 35” disposable camera, is one of 15 framed prints from my “Where Cowboys Roam” portfolio purchased by the Renown Healing Arts Program in Reno, Nevada. I am thrilled to have my limited edition photographs in the largest art collection in Nevada! As a board member of the Nevada Arts Council, we were given a tour of the amazing art found within the walls of Renown Health. Truly, a hidden gem of art in Reno and well worth the time to explore.

Find out more about the Renown Healing Arts HERE. Renown has just added my work to their website. The website shows all of the artists in the program and where you can find the art within the facility. Click HERE to view all of the artist in the Renown Healing Arts Program.

Annenberg Space for Photography

Last month, I was contacted by a photo curator at the Annenberg Space for Photography. She was seeking the work of photographers who have been creating exceptional photography that explores the world, its creatures, history and evolution and requested a submission of my plastic panoramic images for an upcoming slide show night. Once I returned home, it took me more than a day to edit, file prep and up-load the thirty images for the high resolution slide show. The theme for the slide show follows their current exhibit “Country: Portrait of an American Sound“. This special, one-night showcase at the Annenberg Space for Photography will feature work from 25 “Noted Photographers“. What a thrill to be on this list!

Date: Thursday, September 25th, 2014

Time: 6:30-8:30pm

Location: Annenberg Space for Photography

2000 Ave of the Stars #10

Los Angeles, CA. 90067

The following images are but a small sampling from the slide show. They were all created using a Kodak “Fun Saver Panoramic” disposable camera re-loaded with black & white film.
