Boxfotos

Alternative Works. Alternative Spaces.  

Photographers Matt Larson and Rebecca Sexton Larson, cofounders of Boxfotos, work, teach and exhibit historic photographic works out of their 23-foot, 2008 International Flying Cloud Airstream.

Matt explains, "Having a mobile gallery space and classroom is more practical then buying or renting a gallery space. Plus, we don't have to decide which city to live in--we can go anywhere!" The art couple is quickly creating a brand and national following as artists changing the traditional business model by “going mobile” and marketing their own artwork. 

This past year Boxfotos has been referred to as “Monsters of Mobile Art,” “Creative on Wheels” and “Art in a Box” by local and international media outlets and publications.

April's Print Sale

For the month of April, Boxfotos is offering this original silver print for $300 (a $50 savings) from my Environmental Portraiture portfolio series. "Gathering" was shot on the Pinellas County side of the Gandy Bridge--one of my favorite places to photograph in the Tampa Bay area. It's also the place where I spent many weekends as a kid growing up. We called the location, "the Rocks."

The Environmental Portraiture series was shot with a plastic 120 Holga camera. My aim was to create a new series of landscapes, different from the works of the majority of the masters we all know. Unique in that my lens focal distance was set at the closet distance the plastic lens would allow, 4' from the subject to isolate it from the rest of the scene, while changing its scale in relation to the environment.  These stems reaching toward the sky are only between 2-6 inches. 

The sale price is reduced to $300 for the remaining days of April. We hope this print finds a nice cuddly home. CLICK ON THE PHOTO TO GO TO STORE

Our First AlumaFlamingo! Wow!

In February I took a day to run down to AlumaFlamingo in Sarasota to checkout what it was all about. AlumaFlamingo. I was able to walk the expo, check in on a couple of seminars, watch a dutch oven cooking demo and chat to some fellow Airstreamers. I wish I had more time to walk the caravan parking area to meet some folks but it appeared many were out doing the day trips--I didn't see any movement out in the lots.

I can tell from my daytrip that we would probably enjoy participating in the other cross county Aluma-events. I'm thinking participating in the expo with a gallery show might be a benefit to us too. The Airstream parking is setup for a great opportunity to network in the evening hours--I'm thinking, might be a good time to show off our Art-O-Mat Elly too. Time will tell.

Here are my notes and observations about the day.

TST tire warning system, a must * Tire adjustment more in rear of tow vehicle, cold or warm * Michelin LTX Tires, highly recommended * Grease on hitch is a must * Don't grease anti-sway stablizer bars * Airospace 303 for window sealing * Good sleep, custom matress, Rocky Mountain dealer * Motorola subchannel radio * Antsy McClain, music * Expo, gallery exhibit * Ok to get on Airstream roof, stay off front and back areas, carpet barrier for ladder to protect Airstream-a must * Try the dry (water-free) wash.

Overall, it appeared to be a good event but down in attendance I hear from past events held at the Fairgrounds. Now, the Florida State Rally will be a moving rally each year to keep it fresh. That sounds like a good idea too. So, if you get the chance, checkout an "Aluma-event" nearest you. You won't be disapporinted.

 

 And finally, remember .... "Friends don't let friends tow white boxes."
