    The Lead Apron Gallery in Los Angeles is
    opening a solo show of the photography
    of my wife, Melanie King, on September
    18. The show is called "Jacob's Ladder"
    and features her photographs of people
    in Appalachian North Carolina.

    Melanie works entirely in film, and she
    printed all the photographs in the show
    on Agfa MCC 111 paper. If you are in
    Los Angeles on the 18th, please stop
    by and introduce yourself -- we would
    love to meet you.

    Here is a scan of the flyer for the show:

    The cover photo of the flyer, really is a sleeper.

    At first you are attracted to the lighter part where the sky shines through, then towards the caravan/motorhome, then you look around a bit more, Then you see this muted face on the side, just looking at the photographer, nice.

    Mick.

    Mick, I completely agree. Perhaps unintentionally,
    Melanie's photographs to my eye seem filled with
    a sense of foreboding. I find this photograph, in
    particular, disquieting, more so than many of the
    other photographs in the show. This one haunts me.
