I’m starting off 2013 with an exhibit at AS220 in Providence, Rhode Island. It’s a new body of work for me and touches on REVEALED and several other projects I have explored the past few years. The primary exhibit is based around my Blocked Chakra series I recently completed.
I have also set aside space with journal entries that shares the “behind-the-scenes” thought and emotional process of creating these projects. This includes my original journal entries that explored what turned into REVEALED. It’s a very personal exhibit. The artist statement:
Exploring the inner depth of self – mine and yours
Over the course of several years, I’ve taken a journey within – helping me discover more of who I am personally and creatively. I’ve created several projects exploring the depths of the inner self, both mine and yours. As these projects were created, I realized I could capture and project emotion and spirituality through photography. This process changed who I am, and along the way, changed my subjects and others as well. This series of creative photography displays the depth and breadth of our own spirituality, emotional journey, and along with the paradoxical truth that we are all connected.
The exhibit is at the Main Gallery for AS220 at 115 Empire St, Providence, RI. This is a joint exhibit with artis John Jacobson.
Here’s a quick video interview during the screening of REVEALED at the Massachusetts Independent Film Festival in Cambridge, MA. It includes filmmaker Christian de Rezendes and myself talking about the film REVEALED: Portraits from Beneath One’s Surface.
What would you put in your box? This is the big question that you will ask yourself as you explore the REVEALED Project!
The REVEALED project was created by professional photographer, Scott Indermaur. It began with the idea of presenting his subjects with a simple wooden box, and asking them to place items inside the box that represented their spiritual experience. He then would take a portrait of each subject with their box.
On the surface it appears to be a simple idea, but with each person Scott photographed, he began to see much more than the items they put inside their box.
In Scott’s own words: “What I find to be most interesting is the profound effect this project has had on so many of my subjects. Given the opportunity to look within, many experienced a journey that took them much deeper than their initial inner self-examination, which revealed undiscovered truths about themselves.”

I had my first television appearance this past week! All Friends Cabaret host Krystyne Cheever recently interviewed me on QATV in Quincy, Massachusetts about the REVEALED project. It was an enjoyable experience and now it has been posted on YouTube for everyone to enjoy.
2011 fly by with a tremendous amount of REVEALED news and activity. A book is now in production, art exhibits, and REVEALED additions…which happen to only be REVEALED Class subjects. This is a branch of REVEALED that I am very excited to see grow. In 2011 I photographed a class of 5th graders in the Spring and then a class of 4th graders in the Fall. The project begins by me visiting the class and meeting these eager students that are excited about a new art project… And maybe even having a guest artist. 🙂 I return to the class two weeks later to photograph the children with their self designed REVEALED boxes that they get to keep.
I just posted the latest addition of 30 fourth graders and two of their teachers. More about the process and experience is available here.
