- Earlier today got an email from one of my submissions. The submission recepient is going to forward the work to a larger gallery in British Columbia. I guess that gallery is going to do a show on Karen art/artists. Since the Karen people are the main ethnic group in the Mae Sot garbage dump my photos might fit into a larger theme. I hope there is a connection there that works for the curator of the gallery. I hope it leads to a an eventual show. I so desperately want to show "Families of the Dump" pictures. The Karen people are so beautiful and kind, their stories need to be told as often and as large as possible.
- Tonight during my nightshift I will continue to work on my show magazine pictures. That is coming along. I have plenty of photos to use the problem is not all the images I love are scanned to the proper size and to find (I have film binders everywhere in my home) and scan the negs is a time consuming nightmare.
- I also contacted and got info from a person in charge of a great grant. It is a $5000 dollar grant that can be used towards the publishing of a photography book. The grant is a result of Edward Burtynsky's kindness and generosity. I will probably make an attempt there, thou it would be the longest of long shots to be accepted. But just imagine, my lifetime dream of a photo book could be realized. How exciting is that!
