The INTERSECTION exhibition catalog was published on the occasion of luke kurtis’s exhibition at Massillon Museum. The book is a collection of poetry, photography and found texts by luke kurtis created as part of the artist’s rediscovery of his southern heritage. It’s his self-described “ode to the south.” Paired with the companion INTERSECTION zine, also published by bd-studios.com, the artist’s rural upbringing is contrasted with his adult life as a New York artist.

Cara's poetry and photography pairings are like no other. As an artist, Cara captures her audience with her every woman ways. Her works evoke the reader’s full spectrum of emotions – from sadness to laughter, fear to faith, hate to love... every human feeling possible. Her poetry is as inspiring and thought-provoking as it is whimsical and fun; her photographs as original and earthy as they are stunning and spiritual. Cara - a romanticist while at the same time a modernist - appeals to our five senses as well as to our minds and spirits. From verse that is free-formed or rhyming and from images that are vividly colorful or black and white, her words and pictures serve as metaphors and analogies for the experiences and realities of, and the hopes and the dreams in, all of us. Still, Cara’s poems and pictures are definitely and most uniquely her own. Her coupling of verse and imagery is deeply personal and is as much about nature as it is surreal; profound, yet simple. In her wonderful little book of poetry and photography, "Point & Shoot Poetry ~ Image & Verse (for better or worse)...", Cara has so creatively combined these two art forms as to complement one another so partakers of her work not only relate to both the meaningful and the light-hearted messages and nuances, but they also are inspired to plunge deeper into their own feelings and soar higher with their own imaginations as they feast on Cara’s rich “morsels” of work. Cara’s photos capture locales such as South Dakota (where Cara was born and raised), Colorado, Nebraska, Mexico, and California. The humans (who serve as Cara’s “models”) are friends or acquaintances or those whom Cara just happened to spot and “capture” on film by merely “pointing and shooting”. They are of varying ethnicities, creeds, colors, and locales. And, the animals that “pose” for Cara are her good “friends”, as well. These "everyday" animals, people, places, and things (such as bridges, airports, alleys, school houses, highways and byways...) were so inspirational to Cara as to lead her to “tell a/their story”.
In "Whispered Wishes," experience how Kristin dealt growing up with the pain of being different, the challenges and rewards of motherhood, the death of her father and the on going search of her soul. The world is such a beautiful place. It begins at our back door and extends to both real and imaginary vistas. So take the time to appreciate "your world" and use the positive energy nature provides, just as Kristin has done. Enjoy this collection of endearing photos, and beautiful pros as they provide a pathway to nature and the hidden heart. During her youth, Kristin was an exceptionally tall, thin, and quiet girl. Often alone with her thoughts, she turned to journaling at a very young age and soon developed a strong desire for expression and creativity. The farm she grew up on provided a safe, isolated environment where these desires could flourish. She learned how to work hard, appreciate God's Nature, and form good family values. Later in her life, she continued expressing herself through art, crafts and gardening, but her love of nature remained a priority. After discovering she could preserve and recreate her moments in nature through photography, her journaling took on a new meaning. The result of these pursuits is this book. Kristin attended Iowa State University in Ames where she studied art and subsequently met her husband. Since that time she has lived with her husband and raised three beautiful, tall children in a small mid-western town. (As a family they continue to work hard together and she continues to journal and enjoy her many outdoor passions.)
"This book takes you on a photographic voyage through my life so far." –Keegan Allen
Keegan Allen is currently known to fans of the ABC Family hit television series, Pretty Little Liars. He has also appeared in numerous independent films and made his New York Stage debut in the acclaimed MCC production of Small Engine Repair.
Keegan was given his first camera at age nine, and began a lifelong study and pursuit of photography. life.love.beauty is a selection of photographs taken since his childhood. It's a photo journey through the life of an intensely creative soul whose expression finds various forms: in acting, in poems and stories, lyrics and music, but above all in photography. This book's content resonates in the commonality we all share on our own journeys while unveiling an inside look into a world that very few experience.
Organized into three broad groups—life, love, and beauty—the book ranges over the public and private side of Keegan Allen and his world. A child of Hollywood, whose father was also an actor and his mother a painter, Keegan roams freely through that realm, photographing his fellow actors on set, behind the scenes; and recording the amazed, gleeful, sometimes weeping fans that flock to his television and career related events.
Allen also has an eye for the anonymous and the unexpected: the woman gazing dreamily from the balcony of a run-down hotel; the rifle-toting dog walker who seems to have emerged from the 19th century; the performers and denizens of Venice Beach and also the streets of New York, some of them chasing the dream of fame, others having long-since abandoned it; the little boy amid in the crowd in an enormous airport; portraits of lovers kissing on subways, in parks, and on the streets. Traveling from California to New York to Paris and back, as well as through the American west, he finds beauty in both urban and rural places: from large-scale landscapes to glimpses of light transforming what it touches.
Keegan's poems, stories, captions and musings, song lyrics, and journal pages complement the photographs on this journey. He provides an account of growing up just off the Sunset Strip, coming into his own as an actor/artist, dealing with public recognition while maintaining a very private life, falling in and out of love, and acknowledging the influence of his family, friends, fans, and loved ones.
life.love.beauty is an unusually intimate and revealing book: a delight for anyone who values photography, and a gift for the many fans who already follow Keegan's career.
Keegan's real passion comes through in both his photographs and candid story telling in this unique photo-journal.
