Once again I am pleased to present this years ’24 Mobile Photographers Til Christmas’. It is a series that has been run throughout December for the last couple of years and has always been successfully received. In part, it is to celebrate the forthcoming festive season but also to celebrate another year in the timeline of Mobiography.
In the series I ask 24 hand picked mobile photographers to offer an insight into their work, to reflect on their year gone by or plans for the coming year ahead. Each featured photographer is someone who has inspired or supported me in one way or another during the course of the past year. One photographer will be showcased each day until Christmas Eve in a sort of online advent calendar so to speak.
Today’s featured photographer is Jeff Kelley.
Do you have any exciting photographic project plans for the coming year ahead?
One of my more ambitious plans for 2016 is to help coordinate a local photo exhibit. It’s ambitious because I have very little experience with printing my own photos, let alone assembling a group of other photographers and attempting to gather their work collectively in one place.
One of the photos I plan to have show is this one of my daughter, taken over the summer. There is a local women’s college that has a beautiful campus, part of which is several exotic trees that have been planted. This particular tree creates a tent-like canopy that you can enter into. The light was filtering through beautifully, and I think it works well with the theme we picked for the show, “Chasing Light”.
