Seth Thompson

Tonight I attended an opening for Seth Thompson at my friend Nelson's gallery in Dumbo. Mr. Thompson's show is titled "Interiorismo Popular" and features images of Mexican homes and churches taken with a 6x7 camera and natural light. Beautiful work. This image of a church was one of my favorites as it reminds me very much of the church in which Jenn and I were married. Don't judge the image by the website jpeg which is washed out. In person these photographs are spectacular. The show will be up until March so I recommend heading over to Dumbo to check it out.

update: Another Seth Thompson link. (annoyingly also with washed out jpegs!). Mr. Thompson your work is fantastic make some better scans!

Raul, Thank you for blogging about these images. They are lovely. My problem with them is that on my "to do list" for 2006 was a notation to photograph real Mexican kitchens. I don't want to be a copycat but I still have to explore this idea for myself. I always love long exposures. Something extra is revealed when the shutter is open for more than 1/2 minute. Wish I could see the exhibition.
