Portland Brown Bag Lecture Series - February 18, 2015

Hello everyone,

I am thrilled that I have been asked to speak about my photoraphy at the Portland Art Museum Photography Council’s Brown Bag Lecture Series coming up on February 18th.

If you're in the Portlan (WA) area, I'd love to see you there. Admission is free. Please pass it on!

As part of the presention I will be showing new work form my emerging new series 'spomenici'. If you're in Vancouver, you can see prints of this new work during my upcoming exhibition, opening April 23rd, as part of Capture Photography Festival. More detail about this will be provided in a separate blog post closer to teh event.

Here is some more information about the Portland Brown Bag Lecture:

Extended Exposure - Marc Koegel:

I will be presenting work from three award-winning series including: The Canadian Prairies, Lighthouses of the World, and the still emerging Spomenici.

I photograph in black and white using long exposure techniques. A unifying theme in my work is an ongoing interest in historical structures. As a result, I travel extensively in an effort to discover and bring attention to these unique structures. I often take a minimalist approach to help reduce visual distractions and to allow the viewer to enjoy the rich details and special characteristics of each subject.

New Work Coming Soon!

Hello everyone,

my aologies for the long silence...I cannot belief my last post was back in July! Well, I am back and working hard on new work, so this blog will come to life again -))

Over the summer I managed to get out and shoot a lot, more than I ever have in the span of only a few months. My photographic journey lead me across Canada, to Iceland and arround Europe.

It was in Eastern Europe, that I was particularly excited to start work on a brand new series that had me travel through Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, and Bulgaria.

As I have in my previous work, this new series will also focus (pun intended!) on historic structures.

I am excited to share a first image of this new series with you all today:

This image was photographed using my Cambo WRS fitted with a Phase One IQ260 Digital Back. Exposure was 30 seconds, which is all it took the blur the clouds on this windy day.

I clearly remember the day...it was windy, cold and foggy when I first arived just after sunrise, but those conditions only added to the aura and feeling of this location. I stayed for several hours, exploring the site and making many photographs. There is no reference for scale in the image above, but I can tell you that this monument is well over 50 feet tall. Rather impressive, especially when viewed, and photographed, from down the hill.

Please stay tuned for more images to come soon. 

Thank you for viewing!
