All About the Light – SouthEast Center for Photography exhibition

Anthropogenic Crisis No. 103246 (Pathway Ahead) copyright 2021 Douglas Stockdale –


I am very honored to have a photograph from my Anthropogenic Crisis series, above, juried into the SouthEast Center for Photography (SEC4P) group exhibit by Susan Burnstine. The exhibition theme is ‘All About the Light‘, which will have an exhibition opening on March 4th, 2022 at 6:30pm at the gallery in Greenville, South Carolina. The exhibition will close on March 26th. Regretfully I will not be able to attend the opening reception as I will be teaching another book workshop with Medium Photo that same weekend.

The framed 24″ x 20″ print, above, was just sent by UPS ground to the gallery, so that provides plenty of time for the print to arrive. I have floated the 22 x 16.5″ image on a 24 x 20″ sheet of Hahnemuehle Photo Rag Pearl, then flush mounted the print into the white wooden frame without glazing (e.g. glass) or a matte, similar to how I framed the Memory Pods prints in my solo exhibition last year.

Using this contemporary framing method has a lot of benefits in addition to reducing it’s carbon footprint (I will get into a discussion about of intense amount of heat required to make glass on another occasion), as this also reduces the weight of the packing and reduces the cost of shipping. And of course, one less thing to break during shipping. One top to that, this presentation looks amazing.

The exhibition theme is ‘All About the Light‘, and I think that this, as well as the other photographs from the Anthropogenic Crisis series, has an unusual, if not strange ‘light’, that borders on surreal and almost abstract. I am very happy that this series continues to gain traction as the issues of climate change and global heating will continue to get worse unless we can make some substantial changes to the steady increasing amount of greenhouse gases. Protecting the environment also protects the future of mankind.

It is also time to eliminate a couple of events that I usually list below, as the SEC4P book workshop will be completed this coming weekend, as well as the virtual portfolio reviews for Los Angeles Center of Photography (LACP) Exposure Weekend. Btw, it will be a bonkers weekend starting tomorrow between the book workshop and providing portfolio reviews, but only myself to blame. We had scheduled the sold-out follow-on book workshop before LACP announced the Exposure Weekend, an event that I have really enjoyed participating with for the past five years. Fear not, I have another book workshop that is being finalized that I will be adding to the list very shortly!

Again, thanks to Susan Burnstine for curating in this photograph. This framed photograph is now available for purchase from SEC4P. This will be a unique print; not the size that I normally print this image (SEC4P size limitation), and from the last roll of my Hahnemuehle Photo Rag Pearl with my conversion to the Moab Juniper Baryta Rag, also a luster finish printing medium. So this is the only chance that you will see this combination of size and medium.





Medium Photo: Developing a Creative Photo Book, a virtual (Zoom) workshop I will be leading again in conjunction with Medium Photo on: March 5th & 6th and then March 12th & 13th, 2022, from 9am to noon, PST. More details and sign-up available now at Medium Photo.
