I am profoundly honored that NEST Gallery of The Hague, Netherlands selected one of my tattoo macro photos to represent a show, “I am closer to you than your very self.” The image is of Jason Nadeau’s tattoo by Joel Mejias featured on this website. The exhibition features the work of three artists, Muslim, Jewish and Christian, harmonized within one exhibition space. There is a short video in which these artists explain their work (and of which I’m honored that my image inspired the cinematography).
Eric Steinhart, a professional philosopher and accomplished photographer (his Flickr) recently took photos of my tattoos with an Infrared camera. Eric specializes in Infrared photography. We were curious to see how tattoos look in Infrared, and these eerie, luminous shots fantastically bring my tattoos into relief. My back tattoo is in progress (a third session is coming up) and was done by Dennis M Del Prete of Providence Tattoo, RI, as were the other two shoulder tattoos.
