It was suggested to me that I check out the Camera Club series by Chris Verene. Verene is a cheeky photographer and his Camera Club series serves it up well. Amy Arbus, former teacher and curator of the current group show at ICP in which I am featured, once told me that to infuse any photograph with even a scrap of humor is hard to do and Verene shoots and scores. While I am not going to clog up my blog with the description of his project, have a look at the series and his work. Not many a photographer can make strong work that is at once poignant, quirky, and ultimately impish.
