Proofs Exhibition and Competition in Murray, Kenucky

Proofs Opening is coming up: October 4th, 2013 6pm,Robert O. Miller Conference Center 201 S. 4th St. Murray, Kentucky.

Be there and meet me and other photographeres from the area. Here is my work (pictured below) that was Acccepted into the show.

"Life Reflected" by Stacy Frett Copyright 2013. Do not reproduce without permission. All rights reserved.

This is "Life Reflected". I took it in 2012 as part of my Reflection series and it is also part of my Self-Portrait Series as well. It is a single exposure of me reflected through pains of glass that had wild weeds growing through the glass. It was a found setup as I was working with existing objects. Light source was early morning direct sun. the only manipulation of the photograph was that I tinted it to be sepia.
"Her Hat" Copyright Stacy Michelle Frett 2013. Do not reproduce without permission. All rights reserved.

The above image is called "Her Hat" it is part of my self-portrait seris as well. It has a very somber tone to it. Often I shoot many images in black and white because that is my favorite way to capture the mood. High contrast has always interested me as well. it is the closest way I can get to a woodblock print without actually carving a plate. Growing up I was often amazed by the artist Kathe Kollwitz She was a german printmaker. Some of her work was very controversial and her studio was bombed by the Nazis. I am not a political artist, nor a printmaker, but her style has had a great influence on my work. 

Currently just wrote a grant proposal to try and get my self-portrait series funded. I am not going to say which one, I am still a little superstitious at this point. I will definately know in the upcoming months though.

Dreaming of Possibilities

New Changes in my life over the past several years. I used to plan in six month increments, now I plan in one and two year ones. It seems since moving down to Murray Ketucky that my creative work is really growing. I never thought that the subject matter of nature photography would interest me, but it is currently selling in this community. I have also finished writing a grant at the suggestion of my mentor. It was such a thought provoking process. I really put myself into the project. Am hoping it is accepted as it would fun my upcoming work and really challenge me creatively. 

I have really been all over the place over the past three years emotionally speaking. My mother died and it has really had an impact on my view of life and working towards my dreams. I have found that investing myself in the community here has really paid off. like I said above, I am really into making my work happen here. I work toward things down the road. I have met some great people down here, who have really been positive and lovely. It is those people that keep me from packing up and moving. I have made three times the amount of good work that I made while living in Chicago and suburbs. Not as many distractions and more time to really think. I miss the bustle of city life, but Chicago will always be there waiting me to visit.!

Have a great day!,
