ANZENBERGER GALLERY

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!

SCANNING SCANNING SCANNING

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.

BACK TO MISSISSIPPI - PRINT SALE

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.

LARRY McMURTRY for WSJ

"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.
