I will need to show work from my lifetime as a photographer to show how my photography has developed since I was around 21 until now at 50. Basically a 30 year arch. I do not have much work scanned from the early years so I might start out from my first or second trip to Thai when I was 32 and 35 years old until today. So that would be only the last 18 years or so. I might try to show 10 pictures of each series I have done in that period of time. I would talk about the projects, my motivations etc and show the work.
I have a series of show prints stored at mom and dads house already I could bring up those prints and and also use a projector and my laptop to project work. Show photos, talk a lot and have a bit of food and my night is done. It should be fun, some of the guys know my stuff but only in segments, this would give them a better overall picture of its scope.
Possible subject sections for the talk (if I can find the scans?)
- West Oakland California ghetto, Sonny, Dupree, Lewis jazz and heroin drug use
- Laguna California the gay scene
- First trip to Thai, bargirl girl portraits
- 2003 trip bargirl shortime room series from Pattaya Thailand.
