I will be guest exhibiting work from my “Diary of My Miscarriage” Series Friday July 29th at Studio Servitu in Downtown Los Angeles. As I had said in my original blog post about the miscarriage, expressing this all through writing and especially photographing the experience has been a way for me to heal and process the experience. If you are in LA, please stop by!
The event does require an RSVP to either firstname.lastname@example.org or my email email@example.com.
Carlos Batts x April Flores Photography & Art Exhibit Opening Date Friday July 29th
April Flores Exhibiting Self Portraits
April Flores is best known for being a muse and model to artists, directors and photographers around the world. Recently April stepped behind the camera to document herself during a difficult time in her life. As a way to deal with the physical and emotional pain of a miscarriage, April turned the camera on herself as a cathartic way to cope and grow from the experience. You can read more about this photography series on her blog at http://fattyd.com/blog/2011/07/05/diary-of-my-miscarriage/. April Flores will be exhibiting this series of deeply personal self portraits in conjunction with new photo-collages by Carlos Batts.
Carlos Batts Art Exhibit
Carlos Batts will be exhibiting work from his series of non digital photography collages. This is an ongoing series that originated from Batts creating mixed media collages as well as using a creative approach to darkroom techniques. He creates abstract cubist photography, a style which can also be seen in his film making productions. Batts constructs a one of kind negative to produce each unique print.
A brief glimpse into Batts working on his art photography collages can be seen on youtube.com/cbattsfly. After many years of being asked if his work was made on Photoshop, a brief sequence of his process has been uploaded and shared. Batts has embraced incorporating digital technology in his creative process, which is evident in his new film Artcore. Artcore was shot entirely on the Kodak Zi8 and is now available on tlacult.com.
