I recently had the privilege of photographing and designing #alannaclarkes imagery for her new single raw emotion. @alannaclarke is in the CBC Searchlight contest to find Canada’s best new artist! I am so proud of her! You can vote once a day, voting is really easy just one click. Today is the last day of the Regional Semi-Finals vote today to get her to the next round! I really want her to win. She is so talented and really deserves it. http://m.music.cbc.ca/play/artist/Alanna-Clarke/Heartstrings

I took this photo 15 years ago with a #mediumformat #hasselblad camera. Shoot on #Tmax 400 #film. I printed this on archival ilford black and white 16x20 paper by hand in my own darkroom. This photo is shoot in the basement my family’s 100 year old cabin where I spent my childhood summers in Bear Lake Idaho. What I love about photography is that you can use it to express what you feel when you can’t find the words. At 20 I developed disabling arthritis in my hands and I had to drop out of college when I was on an art scholarship. I had disabling pain and at the time I had no idea what was causing it. I felt so helpless. My mom was dying of AIDS and I spent most my time caring for her and I lived this in secret due to discrimination and harassment, I didn’t even tell my best friend. I didn’t tell anyone until a few weeks before my mom past on. The figure in the photo is leaving behind the bonds of the past and walking away on fire. Walk away from your past and let all your love and passion turn into a fire that blazes up inside you and inspires the world. Help me continue to share my story by backing my project on indiegogo at igg.me/at/echoesexhibit more info at www.teresaflowers.com or www.sleepictures.com and PLEASE SHARE!

It was so amazing to see three of my pieces hanging at the opening of #bggallery last night, and to my surprise my work was in the company of some legendary photographers! #dianearbus #helmutnewton #and #MOBY!!! Seeing their work in person is a mesmerizing experience. The show will be up for a few weeks so stop by #bergamotstation in #santamonica and check it out! #teresaflowers#teresaflowersphotography#echoes_exhibit#albumenprint#alternativeprocesses www.teresaflowers.com (at www.teresaflowers.com)

I finally finished this piece for a show I am participating in at the bG Gallery at #bergamotstation in Santa Monica for #MOPLA. This is a 30x40 #albumenprint from a photo shoot I did at #diamondforkhotsprings in #spanishfork #utah. After the photo is hand printed on my favorite paper #reevesBFK I then paint and draw on the photo. These are three of my favorite models @androidream, Jillian and Sam. This maybe one of the biggest albumen prints ever made in all of history and the imperfections make it so unique with its #liquidemulsion. In a world that is so digital this print is one of a kind, handmade and for sale! I call it #thetreeoflife #contactprint#teresaflowersphotography#alternativeprocesses#mixedmedia (at www.teresaflowers.com)
