As with so many things in life, the old saying does indeed hold true. “The Devil is in the details”.
For the past 2 months or so, I have been preparing for a showing of my most recent photographic work. The show is on the 21st of May at the Andaz
Hotel in Savannah, Ga. The images were shot over the past year, and the editing and printing process was completed about a week ago.
Besides the usual decisions that needed to be made, such as what paper to use, what size should the prints be, the frames, the glass, the mats etc., there are so many other details to be done. Labels, signs, additional information about the work and myself for press releases and to provide the guests. What food and drink will be served (luckily this will be left in the most capable hands of Chef Lauren Teague of the Andaz Hotel), how will payments for sold art be processed, and so on and so on.
With all of this on my mind, what is the first question asked by my mother during her most recent phone conversation with my wife Yvonne? ……“What is Bill going to wear?”
Blue jeans and a t-shirt. THAT was easy.
