Publicis Photography Show Recap

Posted by John Keatley / Filed under News


Use the arrows to manually scroll through, or click the play button to start the slideshow.

If you are viewing this in a reader, you may need to visit the blog to see the video and slideshow.

I would like to start by thanking everyone who was able to stop by my show earlier this month, and also everyone who was not able to make it, or just didn’t want to.  You are reading my blog now, so I thank you for that.  Also a very big thank you to Publicis for hosting!  Especially Wade, Carrie, and Lauren.  I had a great time.

It’s an exciting thing to see your own work printed large, or at least larger than a portfolio.  I felt like I was seeing the images for the first time in a way.  Since the show is no longer open to the public, I thought I would share some pictures and a video from the party (above).  Below are the images that are on display, along with the titles and descriptions.  Email me at john@keatleyphoto.com if you are interested in purchasing a print.  I am also selling prints in different sizes than the ones at the show.

Hopefully this will be the first of many shows to come.

Albert And The Eggplant – 18×24
Personal Work, 2004.  An afternoon with Albert is like no other afternoon you could imagine.  Albert has a unique way of doing just about everything, including cooking an eggplant.  It involves making a big mess and cleaning up with a spoon and a bowl.

Zach and Jeremy Roloff are twins, although not identical.  I have been photographing the Roloff family for The Discovery Channel for the past couple of years.  They are the family on the TV show Little People Big World.

Street Youth: The Christmas Bunny.  Photo by John Keatley.

Street Youth: The Christmas Bunny – 18×24
In 2008 I set up a studio at a Christmas party for street youth in Seattle’s University District.  Not a Halloween, or costume party, but a regular Christmas party.  This guy arrived wearing a small bunny costume, and it very well could have been everyday outfit for all I know.

Street Youth: Fuzzy Hood.  Photo by John Keatley.

Portraits are a luxury for street youth, and I know it meant a lot to them to be photographed.

The Writer – 24×36
Every once in a while, when I am least expecting it, things just seem to fall into place and something exciting presents itself.  That was what happened when I photographed Josh Hornbeck in 2007.

Greg Lundgren.  Photo by John Keatley.

This is my portrait of Annie Leibovitz, recently selected for the American Photography 25 contest which is one of the greatest honors in photography.

John Perkins

Dr. John Perkins – 18×24
I felt compelled to photograph Dr. John Perkins after hearing him speak in 2007.  His life story and message of love and redemption struck a chord with me.  John is the author of several books, including “Let Justice Roll Down”.

Buster Brown

Buster Brown – 18×24
Personal Work, 2007.  Bus is a close family friend and a farmer who lives in Woodinville with his wife Ida May.  This portrait was taken on their property just before fresh strawberries and ice cream was served.

Sure wish I could have been there. Great work and super cool to see the connection you have had with the people you have photographed.

I wish I could have been there! Looks great! Where do you get your printing done? WHCC?

I absolutely love your work John. There’s something about the quality of light, the colors that are sort of muted but not completely…. It just really, really gets to me.

Congrats on the show.

Your work is truly inspiring. That’s too funny Bus and Ida live in Woodinville, I grew up there!
