Thank you for participating in the TORSO series. If you would like to see the final image being used for the show I'm happy to release it once it has been processed. The show will run for the month of February at the LUX laundromat. More information regarding the show will be sent once it is finalized.
Since it's a public venue with walk-in in street traffic there will be some censorship on the images. Currently talking with the owner to see how much is required. During the show opening and closing events, the images will be presented fully uncensored. You will receive an invite as well to attend.
I'm hoping to produce a book for the event still working out the logistics but should have that done soon. If I proceed the goal would be to raise money for a community charity. Your image along with your personal story will be featured in the book. If you would like a copy of the book one will be made available to you for the cost of printing. The final piece hanging for the show will be yours at no charge should you decide you would like it. The final image size is yet to be determined.
Below are some questions that may help you write the piece that will be presented with your image. These are jumping-off points and you may choose to use any or none. I want this to be a personal statement so feel free to write whatever works best for you. You can send your written piece to me by email. Use a word processor or just type it directly into the email. my email address is email@example.com
Thank you so much!! I'm so happy with the results and love the work we created. If you have any other questions please feel free to text, email or message me.
