Thank you SE Center for Photography and juror, Dan Burkholder, for including me in this creative lineup of iphoneography images. You may go to their website to view the catalogue.

“The Carnival of Christmas” was taken at dusk at the edge of Zilker Park in Austin, Texas while dark clouds were overhead and trees crowded around below.  A curious juxtaposition.

Expired Polaroid and The Healing of She

I haven’t been posting as I have been preparing for a long distance change of location –  a pain and a blessing. I was forced to attack 27 years of photography images –  film, digital and alternative. Within the purge and sort, I saw a new series I had been working on all along, but did not see until now. Images I thought were “one of a kinds” with no continuity to any working series I had in progress, so set aside. Who knew? #weseefromwithin

Due to preparing to move there has been no time for Polaroid fun.  So, I took a day off this week and created “The Healing of She”. A wonderful way to enjoy my day and refresh before I say goodbye and finish my move. #timezero #expiredpolaroid #sx70 #polaroid

Things do not happen unless you (as in the words of a Macy Gray song) “Get up, get up and do SOMETHING, don’t let your life just pass you by”.

The Healing of She © 2017 Tina Weitz

And then I realized how many images I have taken of the power of feminine…  Works that express my inner self within the visual. I have had so many prayers, and it started to creep into my (subconscious) work.

So once I land in a new home, I will be exploring this further.  I’ll keep you posted!

Fishing for Iconography Wheat Pasting in Johnson City

A Time to Remember © 2011 Tina Weitz Photography

I am excited to be chosen as part of the wheat pasting project, Fishing for Iconography in Johnson City with ASmith Gallery.  The image chosen is dear to me, as it is one of WWII veterans gathering at the Camp Mabry Texas Military Forces Museum to celebrate a Sweetheart Dance in honor of their service.  Vintage clothing, authentic service uniforms, honoring servicemen and the best live big band in Texas, The Sentimental Journey Orchestra, sweeps everyone back in time.

A Continuation of My Pola-Vision Series

I was elated and somber at the same time as I cracked out 10 of the unopened boxes of time-zero Polaroid film I had shipped from the final days of the US factory manufacture in 2005.  The film expired in 2006.

To hear that click and whirrrrrrr from my old SX70 camera.  To see the magic appear.  To continue a vision near to your heart.  All the things that make me a photographer.  I had a wonderful day in my analogue world.
