Four large prints from "Head Bowed, Eyes Open" and six small prints from "Weekly Postcards" are now hanging at Quills Coffee Firehouse at 802 E Main St. The big prints, 40x40" are all about the detail so I hope you can see them in person. They'll be up now through the 1st Friday trolley hop in April.
The Louisville Downtown Partnership has wrapped a number of doors around the city with images by local artists. One of my photographs was chosen for a door at the corner of 7th and Jefferson. You can see more images from the project at https://louisvilledowntown.org/alley-gallery/
The book CUTS has been in process for a long time and now it's finally complete.
It started in 2013 when I was struck by the title of another book: Pruning Burning Bushes by Sarah Wells. By the time I got the book in 2014, it was exactly what I needed. The poem Measuring Rings in particular stuck out to me. The central image of a boy joyfully standing on a stump stuck with me and then one day the image appeared to me in real life. My own son standing on - not exactly a stump - the hollowed out part of a giant beech tree which had two major trunks at one point, but which was now down to just one. The poem, my son, my family history all came together in a clear moment.
After that, my brother asked me to help cut down a tree in his back yard and I took walks in Jefferson Memorial Forest. I made lots of photos of cut tree branches, but it took until 2017 to finally get it into book form. I don't know why I procrastinated.
But now it's here. I only made 25 copies of this first edition so they'll go fast. Get your copy here - http://www.materialprintshop.com/new-books/cuts-by-michael-winters
