Carnival – an exhibit of black and white street photography

inviteCHMay2015V2My first solo photography show opens this week in Ajijic, Mexico. I was lucky enough to be here for this historic village’s version of Mardi Gras.

Compositions exploring the dynamics of crowds in public spaces, centered on ceremony, has been an emerging interest for me. Formal issues relating to classical works, the sociological gaze within a post-colonial framework (in particular D.H. Lawrence’s problematic and revealing Mornings in Mexico) as well as critical interest of Mikhail Bakhtin’s Carnivalesque theories are reflected in this narrative.

If you happen to be in the mountains just south of Guadalajara stop on in and say hi.
