I was recently accepted to a prestigious photography gallery juried exhibition in The California Arts League. My print called “In Good Hands” was accepted into the 2011 Kellicutt International Juried Photo Show with the theme entitled “Through A Lens: Inspiration or Desperation”. I was so surprised that I was accepted into this juried show, and I am honored.
The photography I created was part of a portrait project I implemented last year called, “Healing” when I photographed many families who suffered through their children’s developmental disablities. As Adriana, in her wheelchair, and her loving family were before me I tried to interpret their family experience with my years of experience in portrait photography. I saw how this incredible family merged with her personal force and supported this young woman who is suffering from Rett Syndrome. She suffers daily seizures and loss of control of her body. She requires 24-hour-care by her parents and teenage brother and sister.
And so, I created, “In Good Hands”, because I know she is.

“In Good Hands” will be on view from July 1, 2011 to August 1, 2011. The opening reception will be on July 9th at 5pm to 8pm.
