In October 2013, The Center for Fine Art Photography awarded Portland based photographer Heidi Kirkpatrick a solo show at the gallery after she was selected for the Photolucida Critical Mass Top 50. For her third year in a row.
Combining photography and objects, Heidi's exquisite work tells of family, heritage, loss, love, death, and womanhood. I had the privilege of working with her on an exhibition catalog for her solo show and, I have to say, it was a fantastic experience.
We recently combined forces again to create a second edition of her book. The latest edition includes photographs of her installation at The Center for Fine Art Photography, snippets of her interview in January with Aline Smithson of LENSCRATCH, and background information on some of her pieces in the book.
Her book is currently on exhibition until September 28th at The Phoenix Art Museum's INFOCUS Juried Exhibition of Self-Published Photobooks.
