Cig Harvey

Sunday, February 24th, 2008

We are thrilled to announce that Cig Harvey will be our third Juror along with David and myself. David and I have both heard Cig speak about her work, and anyone else that has such an opportunity would agree that her energy and passion for photography is amazing. We know Cig will bring an unbelievable amount of knowledge and photographic experience to make the jurying process complete.

Below is one of Cig’s photographs from her series “You Look at Me Like an Emergency.”


About the series, from Cig Harvey’s website:

I have always been drawn to times of fragility and use photography to explore and legitimize moments of struggle, uncertainty and doubt. My previous work examined these flaws within myself. In the past my pictures were of me and about me.
This new portfolio, You Look at Me like an Emergency, examines the people and places that surround me, and my relationship to them. Instead of setting aside a time to make pictures, I am now photographing times that actually exist. There is a life being lived and I am in it. A life that is fascinating in its flaws, doubts and elations. There is a truth in these generously given portraits. These pictures show me that life can be as magical as fiction.

Pause, to Begin: Published by Booksmart Studio!

Thursday, January 31st, 2008


Pause, to Begin is pleased to announce that the book produced as a part of our competition will be published by Booksmart Studio in Rochester, NY. Susan and I have had the great pleasure of working with Eric Kunsman, the founder of Booksmart Studio, when we produced the catalogue to OX: CIAS Senior Show 2007. We know our second experience will be just as wonderful.

With the wonderful help of Booksmart Studio we will be publishing three different versions of the catalogue.

1. The Catalogue Edition, which consists of a hard cover book.
2. The Deluxe Catalogue Edition, the Catalogue Edition with a slip cover and it will be editioned.
3. The Limited Fine Art Edition Book, it will consist of a higher quality paper printed on a better printer than the previous two, and will be hand sewn. It will also include a print with it from an image within the book.

Booksmart Studio also has a gallery space called Gallery Kunstler. The Pause, to Begin Exhibition will visit there at a yet to be determined time because we are still currently working on having the exhibition travel. Stay Tuned.

Check out Booksmart Studio here.
Apply to Pause, to Begin here by April 1, 2008. We need applicants to make this a reality, so step up to the plate and apply now!

For Everyone from Everywhere

Tuesday, January 29th, 2008

The Pause, to Begin competition is open to everyone from any country. Unfortunately, we will only be able to physically visit those selected photographers from North America. If your work is selected and you live outside of North America we will still publish and display your photographs with the North American photographers. Hopefully in later editions of Pause, to Begin we will be able to travel farther.
