Harvard Art Museum acquisition

I am so excited to announce that the Harvard Art Museum has acquired ten of my photographs for their permanent collection.  The curators chose the following ten pieces from A Moment Collected: Photographs from the Harvard Art Museum, and I am greatly honored that these photos found a home in the very museum in which they were made.  I'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone at the art museum who helped me make this project a reality, with an extra special thank you to the photography curators, Debi Kao and Michelle Lamuniere, for their support and encouragement.

Photographs from this body of work will be included in my upcoming exhibit at Gallery Kayafas in April 2011, where a book and a limited edition portfolio will also be available.
