Susan Seubert's fine art photography is on display, this month, at the prestigious Venice Biennale. The Biennale has, for over a century, been one of the most important cultural institutions in the world. CNN said "These shows -- taking over everything from pavilions, palazzos and churches to public squares and former factories -- dynamically alter their surroundings, while making potent statements about today's world and what it means to be an artist." It's an incredible honor for Susan's work to be included and we're all thrilled for her.
About the exhibit...
GAA Foundation at the European Cultural Center has selected Portland photographer Susan Seubert for inclusion in “Personal Structures”, an exhibition on view at Palazzo Bembo, Venice, Italy, in concert with this year's Venice Biennale. Seubert will exhibit a recent body of work titled, "Not a Day Goes By: Asphyxiation Series." These photographic prints on metal surfaces meditate on a highly prevalent means of suicide in the United States: Self-asphyxiation using a plastic bag. All the more harrowing for their ordinariness and ready availability, Seubert placed plastic over the heads of her models (whom she crowdsourced via social media) and relied on each individual's instinctual posture to convey a face-on personal aspect to broader, tragic statistics. The results are ghostly, simply composed, eerily beautiful in their veiled view of the people underneath whose features are blurred, creased, partially obscured by the folds and light-glancing planes of the bag. Printed on reflective metal panels, Seubert invites the viewer to consider, through glimpses of their own face in the picture, our common humanness. She also draws parallels between these individual tragedies and the role of plastic in environmental ruination – the great Pacific Garbage Patch and other examples remind us that the Earth, in a very real way, is suffocating in plastic.
An active fine art and photojournalist, exacting in her preparation and printing, she is a master of new and old techniques. Her provocative imagery has earned her critical acclaim with inclusion in Portland2012, a Biennial of Contemporary Art and in the Portland Art Museum's 1999 and 2001 Biennials. She was a finalist for the Contemporary Northwest Art Awards and received Gold in the category of Travel Magazine Photo Essay by the North American Travel Journalists Association. Her work is included in public and private collections including Microsoft Corporation; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX; Portland Art Museum; Oregon Health Sciences University; Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, University of Oregon; the City of Seattle, WA; and the Tacoma Art Museum, WA. She holds a BFA in Photography from the Pacific Northwest College of Art, Portland, OR, 1992.

Fall is here and one of our favorite summer projects is now live! We're so excited to share the final ad, featuring Dunkin's pumpkin spice coffee. You can see it, in print, inside Martha Stewart Living and People magazines!
And, a peek behind the scenes at Red Sky Studios where this much-anticipated pumpkin finally landed on our set. After 8 months of storage in the Los Angeles garage of artist and self proclaimed "Pumpkin Guru" Jon Neill, this pumpkin was shipped across the country to be delicately carved by Maniac Pumpkin Carvers (winners of the Food Network Halloween Wars!). Once carved, our precious pumpkin was then hand delivered, to our set, by food stylist Karen Tully and her assistant Kendra Smith. We became quite attached to it and we'll never look at a pumpkin the same way, again.
Many thanks to the team at Hill Holliday, for bringing us in on this one and to our crew: Photographer Kristin Teig and Digital Artist David Butler, Food Stylist Karen Tully, Prop Stylist John Ross/Anchor Artists, Photo Assistant Joe Ferraro, Digi Tech Rob Coshow, Pumpkin Carvers Jon Neill and Maniac Pumpkin Carvers

When the International Association of Culinary Professionals asked me to speak about photography at their annual conference I was sold...add on the fact that it was hosted at the Loews Hotel in Hollywood, I'm in! Many thanks to the folks at IACP for having me; I was honored to be on one of the panels, among many other seasoned industry folks.
I did not arrive in LA empty handed! With portfolios and promo cards in tow, I also visited many of the creative agencies in and around town. Art producers and creatives were incredibly welcoming and the feedback on the books was inspiring.
Fittingly, it was actually 72 degrees and sunny for my meeting at 72 and Sunny. I really just wanted to lay in their hammocks (!) all day, but I pressed on. Some snaps of my adventures are below. After the food conference and 3 days of creative reviews I packed it up and flew north to Portland, OR. More on that later!
