New Work, Pleasant Surprises
2010 © Ashley Skabar
Last night, Brian and I found ourselves at the Anchorage Museum again shooting as a team for the opening of the Smithsonian Arctic Studies Center. For me, it was a nice break from the several articles that will be deadlining for me this week; holding lights for Brian sounds like work, but it isn't, really. I sincerely love watching him make photographs.
We knew that Brian had several 6' panels in the show as well as a few small details, but we were pleasantly surprised to see that one of his photos was printed as a 15' x 13' mural as part of the permanent collection. Good day!
Today, we had another small collaborative piece (his bio photo) in the Anchorage Daily News' new monthly publication 61 ° North, in which two of Brian's photos accompanied leading features. I had assisted Brian on the shoots earlier this spring, and although it wasn't that long ago, we've been so busy that we had almost forgotten that they were going to be published this month. Neither of us had had any idea that the publication would be so nice. Great job, ADN!
