Installations, Exhibitions and Contributions

 

My goal when exhibiting my photography is to change the way visual artwork is experienced. When my work is shown I create an audio description for each traditional print displayed, which is accessed by scanning a QR code on any smartphone. I also provide prints which are tactile, allowing those who are visually impaired to experience the artwork.

Note: while I do exhibit my work, it is not for sale. My aim is to educate and change the perceptions of the fully sighted toward understanding visual and tactile artwork created by the visually impaired. I do donate my work on occasion depending on the charitable organization.

Exhibitions and Openings

January 2020, solo exhibition and opening of Ted’s Landscapes of the Body project at the Lighthouse for the Blind Gallery in San Francisco Ca. This body of work will be on display in the gallery located at 1155 Market St. in San Francisco through the end of 2022. The exhibit was recently refreshed with full audio descriptions recorded for each piece by Ted and features a immersive experience of tactile and audio art.  “I am beyond excited and honored to have this work exhibited at the Lighthouse for the Blind Gallery” – says Ted.

 

October 2019, solo exhibition and debut of my new Historic Colorado body of work. This collection combines digital photography and an alternative photographic process called Cyanotype. The images feature locations in Colorado active between 1850 and 1900. The Cyanotype process was developed in 1855 so this process is appropriate for the subject matter. Each image is one of a kind and a departure from the traditional digital workflow. 

 

Denver Month of Photography Road Trip exhibition at Access Gallery 2019. This was the debut Fauna’s Adventures a body of photographic work, created in cooperation with several industry leaders in the travel and leisure industry. This project features Ted’s guide Dog Fauna and aims to promotes the use of legitimate service animals in the travel and hospitality industry.
