I am excited to be teaching a one-day workshop at AS220 in Providence, RI – November 9th, 2014. This class will discuss many techniques I used in connecting with my REVEALED subjects. It is a great opportunity for photographers to learn to connect with subjects on a deeper level and create dynamic portraits on-location.
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.
May 30, 2012 – Scott Indermaur’s fascinating book REVEALED was a solo exhibit at the Newport Art Museum. Published this past year, there’s already a documentary film about the making of this project and the film is currently a contender in 5– that’s right, 5! – different film festivals.
Scott spoke at the CCCP earlier last season about the creative process he was using to capture people’s most heart-felt thoughts on “Life” and then having them sum it all up in a 6″ x 6″ wooden box. As you can see, the idea has captured a lot of interest. So join us as Scott gives us an update on this fascinating on-going project.

THIS I BELIEVE REVEALED subject Wendy Lawton discusses the project and the impact it had on her. Her This I Believe essay is titled “Redemption”
RIPR (Rhode Island National Public Radio) This I Believe and Scott Indermaur’s REVEALED are two projects that have been easily merged and complement each other to create the project THIS I BELIEVE REVEALED. This collaboration makes an even greater impression and impact on Rhode Islanders through print, radio and photography that create a unique and multi-dimensional experience and personal connection for the audience. Lawton’s essay may also be heard at RIPR’s website.
The collaboration features the essays of Rhode Islanders who share the core values that guide their daily lives and those individuals sharing those core values as REVEALED subjects. The result is a powerful combination of creativity, words and photography.
This project is made possible in part by a grant from the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts, through an appropriation by the Rhode Island General Assembly and a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
