So… what does one do when he or she opens the latest Juxtapoz and finds their cheesy face smiling back from within one of those photo montages that’s meant to illicit pining sighs of oh-I-wish-I-was-there-with-all-those-cool-people from the magazine’s vast readership??
Well, in my case, I run to my camera and photograph my moment of glory. Then I run to my computer and create a blog entry to shamelessly announce to the world, “Hey! Look! I’m in Juxtapoz rubbing shoulders with all those cool people who are out doing arty things.”
So, yeah, my photo is in Juxtapoz in a shot taken at the Long Gone John exhibit a couple of months back. I’m standing next to Annie Adjchavanich of Billy Shire Fine Arts, and described as “…collector John Purlia” — spelled right and everything.
Such cheese. Such pompous look-at-me self-promotion. Shameless….
