In mounting an exhibition of my pictures made in America, I’ve thought a lot about the influence the American photographic tradition has had on me. Rather than run away from this tradition, I’ve come to embrace it. Recently I’ve even experimented with recreating iconic photographs much the way a painter might draw from the masters. I’ve found the process to be both educational and just plain fun. Here’s a recent homage I made to Dorthea Lange’s Migrant Mother:

For my new exhibition of From Here To There at the Everson Museum of Art, I’m building upon the Flickr assignments of last year: www.flickr.com/groups/from-here-to-there/
For this assignment, I’d like participants to do their own recreations of iconic photographs, and upload them to the group pool. Don't forget to label your photo with the title of the original work that inspired it.
From the submitted images, I’ll chose 3 winners. Each winner will receive a signed copy of the From Here To There catalog.
The deadline for submitting is January 12, 2012.
This is a public group.
