Leilah's Garden: The Ant is currently part of a juried group show, Close-Up, at the 1650 Gallery in Los Angeles. The show will run through July 2018 and features macro-photography by a variety of artists.
Leilah's Garden is part of a larger photo-essay about Palestine. Palestinians are like ants, and I mean this in admiration, with their ability to navigate around barriers and impediments. Like this specimen in Leilah’s garden perched on top of a thistle they are also capable of a sharp bite.
Columbus Circle Fog was recently selected "best in show" at Fusion Art's 3rd Annual Cityscapes International On-line Juried Exhibition for the month of June 2018. The Fusion Gallery website is here. The University of Northern Iowa press release is here.
The image was recorded from the main entrance to the Columbus Circle subway station in New York City. The entrance is sunken below street level, allowing the composition to include the globe sculpture on the right and the Time-Warner towers on the left.
