Happy to announce that I will have two pieces included in the upcoming “Abandoned Buildings” exhibition at the Blank Wall Gallery in Athens, Greece. The show runs from October 26th through November 7th and will include 100 images from international photographers all focusing their lenses on the beauty of abandoned buildings. The image shown here is one of the images selected for the show.
If you are in the area, the Blank Wall Gallery is located at: 55 Fokionos Negri Street 11361 – Athens – Greece or you can find them online at BlankWallGallery.com.
I’m very excited to be part of this exhibition since the Blank Wall Gallery does so much for the international photography community. Apart from running a beautiful gallery in the heart of Athens and doing a lot to promote the work of up and coming photographers, the good folks at the gallery do not charge for submissions to their exhibitions. The way the gallery is setup, you only pay a small fee if your work is selected and this covers the printing and costs for the show. It’s very reasonable. They do so much for the community in running shows like this that I am especially honored to be included in this upcoming exhibition. They really do a beautiful thing by bringing the world of photography to the viewers in a comfortable modern setting right in the heart of the walking district of Athens. I do hope you will get a chance to check out the show, even if it’s just online (although, if you do make it to Athens, please let me know.) If you’re a photographer why, it goes without saying really but I encourage you to enter your work for upcoming shows at the gallery. (I typically include them in my regular feature called “Opportunity Weekend” but you can also opt to receive their newsletter on their website if you are serious about exhibiting there and would like to get details about upcoming calls for entry directly from the gallery.)
From the back alleys of rural Texas to the walls of a gallery in Athens. Who knew photography could take us so far, right? I hope you enjoy the trip as much as I do.
Until next time…
PS This image taken in an abandoned schoolhouse in the rural Texas Hill Country. The poetry of emptiness is such a wonderful thing to explore.
