I was interviewed via phone by Senior editor of Don't Take Pictures, Roger Thompson, a professor at Stonybrook University in NY for a feature in Don't Take Pictures Magazine You can read the full article "Looking Through the Skull: Decay and the "Mysterious" Jaime Johnson" here:
These two magazines came in the mail today. Nice spread and article in Don't Take Pictures and one image published in Shots #127.
First things first: Ordered more business cards for SPE. Still love the amazing logo designed by Brittany Spencer!
It's pretty inundating being at SPE, in a mass of fellow photographers, but always rewarding to see work and meet new people. Well, with New Orleans being close to home, it certainly made the event seem less hectic! Got a few shots of my setup from the curator portfolio walk through during moments in inactivity, along with images of pieces I had in the SPE show @ the Ogden Museum of Southern Art.
Wasn't too long ago (4 years ago in 2011) that I went to my first national SPE and remember not showing any of my work, and just walking around, taking it all in.
Overall, great time.
Excerpt from the full article:
While most patrons agreed there was a certain darkness in the images, they also noted their beauty.
“They really make you think about life,” Rebecca Goodman of Greenville said. “I don’t know how to explain it or what word to use exactly, maybe ‘earthy’ or ‘gritty,’ but they’re really beautiful, they really catch your eye.

First show of 2015 at Greenville Arts Council.
Spent most of Christmas and the New Year, printing 13 new works for this show, in additon to showing 12 large pieces from my MFA exhibition. Looking forward to seeing all the work on display in Greenville, MS later this month. The Delta Demoncrat-Times just wrote an article on the upcoming show, viewable in this article.
At the end of November some of my images were shared on the online photography journal Light Leaked: a journal that creates dialogue about photographic creation, both conceptually and in business, through features and interviews. Light Leaked is inspired to create exposure and a community to emerging and established photographers.

Took some time but the final piece is 50 in X 40 in, won't fit inside a car. Took necessary Cyanotype precautions and found the proper unbuffered mat board and also invested in UV anti glare plexi.
