I’m thrilled to announce my collaboration with the Anzenberger Gallery in Vienna. Regina Anzenberger and I were able to meet each other during this year’s Fotofest. I’m looking forward to visiting the gallery next summer. Should you find yourself in Vienna be sure to visit their beautiful space and keep a look out for the annual Vienna Photo Book Festival in June 2015!
Feels good to be back in the editing seat after a trip to the Mississippi Delta. It’s definitely summertime out there. Ice cream truck is running, fields are burning, and birds are chirping.
The WilJax Gallery and I have teamed up to make these limited edition prints check out the link to read more.
Big thanks to Laura and Laura for the interview yesterday!

Tacky Advertisement Alert: I’ll be returning to Mississippi for a few weeks next month and had hoped to do a little fundraising by offering these last 5 of 20 gelatin silver selenium toned prints of Christmas Tree, Alligator, MS 2012. They are 5x5 image on 6x6 Ilford Warm Tone paper. Two AP’s are in reserve. If you happen to be interested feel free to drop me a line at my email: thibodeaux (dot) brandon (at) gmail (dot) com.
I owe the world to Mr. Estrin for his beautifully written feature for the Lens Blog this morning about When Morning Comes. He took in four days what I’ve tried for nearly five years to express. I’m humbled beyond words.
If you’re in the Houston area be sure to run by the Houston Center for Photography to catch the great shows up right now. I have one photograph included in Photolucida’s Critical Mass: Top 50: How One Thing Leads To Another, curated by Jessica Johnston.
"You’re from Beaumont," he asked, while we were in between portrait locations. "Do you watch True Detective?" We both agreed that the show did a good job of portraying the spirit of the gulf coast. But for a split second I had to stop and smile and say to myself, "Larry McMurtry watches True Detective."
I’d been commissioned by the Wall Street Journal to photograph McMurtry up in Archer City with explicit instructions, “NO BOOKS”. As luck would have it, when I arrived he said that he didn’t feel like going out to his family’s ranch.
So where does he suggest that we shoot? The book store.
Thank God for black velvet.
Here’s the link to the WSJ story. He’s come out with a new book about Wyatt Earp and the OK Corral shoot out.
I’ve caught word that the Museum of Photographic Arts is nearing its financial goal to buy both of my prints that are currently on display there!
