Meet me in Italy

Time is ticking and Paul’s Italian workshop will soon be here!   Join Paul in one of his favorite places, the hills of Tuscany.  As Team Elledge prepares for the TPW program “The Creative Portrait: Seeing Yourself In Others”, we want to remind those that have expressed interest over the years that it is time to sign up.

The program, the location, and taking a week of time to make images for the love of creating all add up to a magical experience.   Take the time to treat yourself… We hope to see you under the Tuscan sun.

Mexico 1000

Sometimes you need to step away from one passion in order to nurture another.  Team Elledge is deeply involved in many outside interests in addition to creating images.  These outside passions refuel the mind and body to inspire new perspectives in Paul’s image making.

One of the most intense passions is the motor sports.  If you follow Paul’s Tumblr 133 racing, you have seen Paul race AHRMA events and and ride the ICE.  Starting May 10th Paul will undertake the most physical and challenging event to date.  He will ride his KTM 530 EXC in the Mexican 1000 which will cover 1,300 plus off road miles starting in Ensenada, Mexicali, Baja, Mexico on May 10th and ending May 14th in San Jose Del Cabo.

Team Elledge would like to thank Johnny Scheff at Motorworks for all the knowledge and encouragement to make this dream a reality.  In addition, the good folks at Precision Concepts for the bike set up and prep for this off road event.

Mirror Mirror

Team Elledge is very excited for the show opening at Catherine Edelman Gallery Friday, May 2.  Our dear friend Elizabeth Ernst will be exhibiting her latest cast of characters in the show titled, Mirror Mirror.  Whether the characters are based on imagined or real people, Elizabeth’s storytelling continues in each new character.  The finished pieces create a sense of wonder that is both compelling and haunting.  The mysterious light and intense gaze from many of the characters will have you reflecting on your own stories.

Come join Team Elledge as we celebrate Elizabeth!

Gold

In general Team Elledge has a silver kind of aesthetic except when it comes to winning.  Then, we always prefer to bring home the Gold at any competition.

Graphis has always held a special place in Paul’s heart as he studied the book of winners   while he was in college.    Often dreaming of his time to view his work within it’s pages.  Team Elledge is pleased to have two Golds in this year’s Graphis Annual.  They are photographs of two of his favorite subjects–Billy Corgan and Italy.   Thanks to both for always inspiring some of his most memorable images.

It’s Complicated

Team Elledge recently led a photo workshop for the Santa Fe Workshops on a “people to people cultural exchange” with Cuba.   We are now starting to finalize and process some of the images Paul made.  If you don’t already follow Paul on Tumblr now is a good time to start.  These images will start to roll out over the next month on Tumblr way before the final work will arrive to the website.

The people of Cuba are amazing.  They are artistic, vibrant, inventive, and living life to it’s fullest despite the oppressed situation they live in.  It is a place that is both beautiful and tragic, and the experience of being there was complicated for sure.  Nevertheless, we cherish our new friends in Cuba and want to celebrate their spirit by sharing the images.
