Some great programming happenings in our neck of the woods here in Oregon!
First, we are happy that Priya Kambli will be having a solo exhibition at Newspace Center for Photography this month. Priya's series "Color Falls Down" is has a strong genealogical aspect, as Kambli gathers and recontextualizes the records of her family history, but her own photographs introduce staged, fictional elements as well, examining issues of identity, displacement and cultural history. Kambli was a Critical Mass 2008 Book Award Winner.
Opening reception is Friday, September 7th, 6-9pm.

Mr. WM Hunt will be taking Portland by storm this month! Blue Sky will host WM Hunt's installation The Unseen Eye, including approximately one hundred of his personal images from his collection, featuring photographs in which eyes are closed, covered, or hidden. The exhibition opens at Blue Sky on Thursday evening, Sept. 6.
The Portland Art Museum's Photography Council is pleased to host Mr. Hunt for his lecture about this collection on Saturday, September 8 at 2pm in the Miller Room of the Mark Building. It is free and open to the public.
WM Hunt is also the curator for this year's Critical Mass Top 50 traveling exhibition.
Oregon boasts some beautiful coast communities, and Cannon Beach is at the top of the list! It is the home to the inaugural debut of the Cannon Beach Photo Review, hosting some great regional and national reviewers. Dates for this weekend of photographic reviewing, mingling, networking and excursion-ing are October 12 - 14th, 2012.
Lastly, we are excited here at Photolucida to be submitting files for print this week for CM11 Book Award winner Jennifer B Hudson's monograph, MEDIC. It will be a gorgeous book, with some interesting and surprising design details, printed and bound at Oddi Printing in Iceland. It is due off the presses in December!
