Creative Durham

In what oth­er town of our size can you just pop into a cool gallery like the Pow­er Plant Gallery and there’s a pho­to artist brain­storm­ing and chat­ting about her work— in the mid­dle of some Fri­day after­noon?

We had the best time talk­ing pho­to and pho­to edu­ca­tion with artist and teacher MJ Sharp. You can see a peek at her work above, and she was sort­ing through what pieces she loved and what her final project would become.

Col­in and I loved MJ’s work. I can’t say enough how easy it is to make cool things into cool pho­tos… but how about a reg­u­lar day with fam­i­ly, or bugs, or your back­yard at night. MJ’s work shows the depth that comes from play­ing with ideas and just plain shoot­ing things over and over to see what’s there.

You can learn more about MJ on her site, and see some work HERE.
