National Safey Council – my road side memorial photograph

National Safety Council – photograph copyright 2012 Douglas Stockdale

The National Safety Council (USA) has incorporated one of the photographs from my project “Lest I Forget” into a monthly safety campaigns. Editorial freedom; they have grayed down the photograph to keep the emphasis on their text.

For my work it is sometime ambigious and mysterious as to where I am at the moment.

Lest I Forget – Ferentino Italy

Ferentino, Italy copyright 2012 Douglas Stockdale

The attempt to preserve memories is more prevelant in Italy than I earlier thought. They can be very subtle and difficult to discern, but this one in Ferentino was very obvious.

MACRO acquires Ciociaria Limited Edition Photographs

Photographs copyright Douglas Stockdale 2012

I am now able, as well as extremely happy, to share some wonderful news. Over the past month, I have been in discussions with Museo d’Arte Contemporanea di Roma (MACRO), the largest contemporary art museums in Rome Italy, regarding the acquisition of three Limited Edition photographs from my photobook project Ciociaria. This week I received the really grat news that the acquisition has been completed. The three photographs that they acquired are provided in this post. The photographs will become part of the museums permanent collection of contemporary photography.

What I am finding out is that with many museum acquisitions, the process can become very complicated. In this case there was a need to balance what the museum wanted in the number and size of the photographs with their acquisition budget, which initially did not add up very well. Thus I brought into the process a small group of my collectors who provide underwriting (financial gifts or now museum patrons) assistance with the museum’s acquisition. And the deal slowly came together.

This is my first museum acquisition as well as my first inclusion into a permanent photography collection. To now be a part of the MACRO’s contemporary photography collection is an honor, as the MACRO is becoming a very well-known contemporary art museum in Italy as well as in Europe.

Somewhere over the MidWest USA, December 2011 by Douglas Stockdale

It seems like this blog is becoming my de-facto website as it much easier to incorporate updates. So today was a little bit of a housekeeping day for this blog, mostly to provide some links on the “Ciociaria” side bar, both for some of the bookstores which are carrying my book and other places to obtain book information.
