In her March 23 “Flat File” post, gallery owner Christa Dix turned her attention to the Nocturne series.

She refers to S.Gayle Stevens as “a rock star.”

I concur.

We call Nocturne Number Thirty-Three the “Shinto Shrine.”  We have shot this pier several times from several different points, but Hurricane Isaac kindly rearranged it for us.


Thirty-Three is underwritten by art collector Diane Johnson Boddy of Dallas.

Nocturne Numb er Twenty-Two is the second plate we made on December 13.  Its emulsion also sits on a Hurricane Isaac plate (please see here.)


We appreciate the support of Jeanne Klein of Austin, Texas for underwriting the production of this 20×20 tintype.

New Orleans Photo Alliance — CURRENTS

December 16, 2012 § Leave a comment

Each year, in conjunction with PhotoNOLA, the New Orleans Photo Alliance holds a show of its members’ works. This year’s exhibition was juried by Richard McCabe, Curator of Photography at the Ogden Museum. Fourteen artist/teams were selected to send work. Richard chose Nocturnes 1, 2, 4, 7, 8 (Liz Meux), and 9 (Diane Boddy), for the exhibition. Thank you Liz and Diane, the first two to lend your support to these Two Old Women.


The show opened November 30 at the Ogden Museum and continues through January 6.
