Call for entries

Liz Kuball had a great idea. She started an online exhibition project for everyone who got rejected at Critical Mass. And there aren't so few of us who had made the same experience as Liz.

So get your photo out and send it to Liz. But you have to hurry, the deadline is already today!!!

Here is what she wrotes about her project:

Call for entries: Critical Mass rejects
If you entered Critical Mass this year, and you didn’t get in, take heart: You can be part of a one-time-only group show right here on my blog. Send me your favorite photo from your Critical Mass entry, the one you’re thinking rocked it so hard that the Critical Mass jurors must be blind not to have chosen you. The deadline is Thursday, October 30, at 8:59 p.m. Pacific time (11:59 p.m. New York time). The next day, I’ll post every photo I’ve received. Spread the word.

Note: Please send your image at 72 dpi, measuring at least 500 pixels on the longest side. (If you’ve already sent me your image, no worries.)

I just added a new series to my website

While I am working on my projects One for the album and Lands of milk and honey I always worked and work on a project called Caravans because all the projects are more or less related to each other and therefor I mostly work on three projects at the same time.

Below are some examples of the project. If you would like to see more, you are welcome to visit my website and check it out.

The direct link to Caravans is here

Postcards from the edge

The new "Postcards from the edge" benefit sale is open for submissions now.

The 11th Annual Postcards From the Edge benefit for Visual AIDS will be hosted by Metro Pictures, New York on January 9-10, 2009.

Preview Party
Friday, January 9, 2009 from 6:00 - 8:00 PM
Your only chance to get a sneak peek at the entire show.

Benefit Sale - ONE DAY ONLY!
Saturday, January 10, 2009 from 11:00 - 6:00
Over 1500 original postcard-size works of art.
$75 EACH. Buy 4 cards and get 1 free!

Postcards From the Edge is a show and sale of original, postcard-sized artworks on paper by established and emerging artists. Offered on a first-come, first-served basis, each piece is exhibited anonymously, and the identity of the artist is revealed only after the work is purchased. With the playing field leveled, all participants can take home a piece by a famous artist, or one who’s just making his/her debut in the art world. Nonetheless, collectors walk away with something beautiful, a piece of art they love. For more details, visit

Attention Artists!
DEADLINE: Wednesday, December 10, 2008
We are looking for artists to donate a 4" x 6" original work on paper for the exhibition and sale. Painting, drawing, photography, printmaking and mixed media are all welcome. If you would like to participate in Postcards From the Edge, download submission forms here

Wanna Help?
We need volunteers to help process the artwork, install the exhibition, and work during the event. We are also looking for experienced Event Photographers. If you can help and want to join in the fun, please email Nelson Santos with days and times available at

Two Way Lens and Zoe Strauss

Two Way Lens proudly presents Zoe Strauss

I am extremely happy to be able to include Zoe to my project. When I asked her, she was excited to be part of it and agreed immediately. Although she is terribly busy with all her different projects, her book comes out very soon and her upcoming show is also right in front of her, she took the time to answer my questions. We exchanged many super friendly emails till all was finish and I can truly say she is not only an amazing photographer but also a wonderful person.

Thanks again Zoe for your contribution. I love you!!!

Back from Berlin

We are back from Berlin. It was such a great time. We enjoyed the city so much and decided to make Berlin to our new hometown. As soon as possible we want to figure out what we can do to make it possible to live at least part time in Berlin. All you heard about the city is true, but even much better. There is such an incredible energy and creativity and so many cool people from all around the world.

Here are some impressions from Berlin, more are coming soon.
