Here Comes The Sun

Bare Trees collection appears in the current issue of The Sun magazine. According to it’s web site The Sun is

…an independent, ad-free monthly magazine that for more than thirty years has used words and photographs to invoke the splendor and heartache of being human. The Sun celebrates life, but not in a way that ignores its complexity. The personal essays, short stories, interviews, poetry, and photographs that appear in its pages explore the challenges we face and the moments when we rise to meet those challenges.

The Sun publishes the work of emerging and established artists who are striving to be thoughtful and authentic. Writing from The Sun has won the Pushcart Prize, been published in Best American Short Stories and Best American Essays, and been broadcast on National Public Radio…

The Sun has attempted to marry the personal and political; to honor the genuine and the spiritual; to see what kind of roommates beauty and truth can be; and to show that powerful teaching can be found in the lives of ordinary people.

I don’t know if my photos will ever live up to the pedigree that some of the writers in The Sun have, but I’m pleased to be published in such a thoughtful and interesting magazine. I’m also pleased on a pragmatic level because these days The Sun is one of the rare publications of fine art photography that does not charge photographers to submit their work and actually pays you if they publish it. They also provide a free one-year subscription, so I’m going to be enjoying the benefits of having my photo published there for a whole year and gain exposure to a more thoughtful perspective on myself and the world to boot.      ]]>

POTD: Trapez!

Trapez! Budapest, Hungary 2011

As far as I cold tell from across the street, Trapez! was some kind of convenience store. It’s way more typical for me to take photos void of people but after posting so many from Budapest that in fact do include people, this one looks strangely empty.]]>
