Full Circle

Some of you might enjoy this. Elyse and I spoke about our work last week at Brooks Institute of Photography and these are my notes for my speech. I tried to have everything connect to one-another, and then have it all circle back around.

If the Way is Open - Exhibition by Elyse Butler & Matt Mallams

Please join us for the opening of their exhibition If the Way is Open on
Thursday, January 22nd, 2009 from 5:00 - 7:30 pm at The Visions Gallery -
presented by Brooks Institute & Marriott Ventura Beach.

"If the Way is Open is a body of work that portrays the ebb and flow
of life. For us, photography is not just a job, it is a lifestyle. We
follow our intuition and use our cameras as a medium to record the
unique moments that happen in our everyday. We feel that life offers
situations far more strange and beautiful than anything we could come
up with. This work is personal, it is documentation of our feelings
and memories, and our observations of reality. We make pictures to
better understand life as we're living it."

The address: 2055 East Harbor Boulevard Ventura, CA 93001

We will also be speaking at Brooks Institute on Wednesday,
January 21st, 2009 at 6:30 pm. Ventura , CA

Hope to see you there.
