Because I'm unable to edit past posts, I'll have to recreate this topic to update where and when the art/photography exhibit is to be held.
On any given sunny day, a beam of light would enter our otherwise darkened basement. I thought to myself one day I'm going to use these elements in a photograph. At or about 12:30 pm est that beam of light was making it's way into our basement, Purely on a whim, I grabbed my 30 year old teddy bear bookend and placed it near the beam of light. Little did I know what was to happen. This unedited, natural light image was the only picture taken on that day as it was a one shot deal. I've posted this image at Gurushots, 500px and more with resounding positive feedback.
Last month, I was asked to showcase this photograph at the Johns Hopkins Children's center art & Photography exhibit in late April. I've since had this print matted & framed by Aaron Brothers & Michaels. Knowing that my photograph can or could be sold during this exhibit, I've placed a price of $3,000 on this print with 90% of that going towards the Johns Hopkins Children's Center. So not only is one buying my print, But they're helping support a great cause.
Here's what fellow Artist/Photographer Robert Stanley
had to say about my Print: "The Lonely Teddy Bear Bookend is a very moving photo, in emotional content, rich variety of textures, and striking, This wrong composition was perfect for the emotional tone of the shot.
I hope you continue to pursue your unique personal expressions."
Currently I'm asking $3,000 for this matted/framed print with 90% of that going to help support the Johns Hopkins Children's Center. Not only will one get this limited print, but they will be supporting a great cause. The only way to buy this print and make sure that all funds are distributed equally, is to attend this art/photography exhibit late April early May.
