Diver by Bee Flowers
The National Centre for Contemporary Arts in Moscow is just finishing up an exhibition entitled Seeing Sound, a group show featuring a photo installation from Bee Flowers. Called Diver, Flower's describes his piece as a musical score in visual images, the accompanying music, presented on head phones, providing a possible reading of the collection of images.

Flower's work on the Photographer's Showcase, Megastructure, investigates the urban spaces of Russia, largely composed of exceedingly similar concrete structures and arranged in such a way that well achieved city planning appears to be a happy accident. Taken during the winter, the images are striking in their colorlessness -- almost entirely in shades of pale, though captured on color film.

Dick Sanders from his Black Angeles portfolio
Congratulations to Dick Sanders, whose work has been selected for exhibition at the Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, CO, in the upcoming show Human + Being curated by Phil Borges. The exhibition runs from March 25th to April 23rd with a public reception on April 1st from 6-9pm. Sanders will present images from his new Black Angeles body of work. Sanders is a skilled portrait artist, setting up on the street and using passers-by as his subjects. You can see some of Sanders other wonderful portrait projects here on the Photographer's Showcase.

Michael Donnor

 The CEPA Gallery in Buffalo, NY is opening a show of work by Michael Donnor on March 25th with an opening reception from 7-10pm. When In My Little Room: A Visual Exploration will feature work from four of Donnor's portfolios: Silent Moan, We Fall Down Through the Rabbit Hole, March Across My America and All Before Upon Awakening. The eerie images from Donnor's Silent Moan portfolio can be seen on the Photographer's Showcase here. Donnor consistanly presents a dream-like vision, his images always darkly-fascinating, though perhaps also quietly frightening.
