Planning My First Art Exhibit

I’m finally doing something I’ve always wanted to do! It’s taken a while but the stars have aligned. This fall, I’ll be exhibiting some of my photos in a local gallery, as part of a group show of people’s Instagram portraits. The details are still being worked out, but I’m collaborating with a friend on it and hope to share more information soon. In the meantime, I’ve been scouring my account for images that I’ve been earmarking for a project like this. As a professional writer, I find great relief expressing my vision through visuals and not words; I find that you can often say more without saying anything. These images—contenders for my final selection—represent the kinds of portraits I like to capture on my phone: spontaneous, hidden and revealing.
