Last week the photographer, Debora Smail was in town, working on a travel assignment for a magazine. We hung out a bit; first we cracked open a few beers at Harry’s Tinaja, then I took her her over to my studio and showed her DesertManhattan. Besides it being a lovely afternoon, full of interesting conversation, she took a lot of pictures. Here are some of them. Hope you like etc. Thanks, Debora!
These are amazing shots – you look like you’re having too much fun!
Great shots, Hugh.
Having these professional shots of you working is such a genius idea to promote the new works that I wish either you thought of it upfront directly and intentionally as part of your evil plan, or that I did and suggested it to you.
Awesome shots Mr Mac!! Hope all good in life and love 🙂 xx
thanks for the shout-out, hugh!
i really enjoyed shooting you working! too bad i couldn’t capture the thought-smoke coming from your ears!
i can’t wait to see DesertManhattan completed – it was already beautiful in the beginning stages.
These are great shots. I especially like the one at the picnic table with your blackberry, smokes and lighter. Is that a book of business cards underneath? Portfolio maybe.
Jennifer- THAT ACTUALLY IS a a business card wallet filled with 70+ original drawings. Very cool that you spotted it 🙂
Is that really cigarette smoke or the metaphysical, mystical otherness that informs web 2 genius?
Thanks for sharing Debora and Hugh. Wish I’d
been with you both at the Kiss Tank, sharing the beer and conversation.
Really lovely photos Hugh. Wish i could see your pieces in person because they look absolutely stunning online.
Your writing has become more interesting since you moved to the desert, by the way.
“Your writing has become more interesting since you moved to the desert, by the way.”
Candice, yeah, I would agree. It’s because I now actually have the time and space to think propely.
As a painter friend of mine said to me about West Texas, “There’s not much to do out here, except to make art and drink beer.”
Awwwwwwwww, Damn! Made me wanna pick up smoking again. But that aside, so happy to see you stretching out and flexing. Follow it! Peace (cough, cough…oh yea, that’s why I quit).
Very nice. They capture you well.
