Peace sells, but who's buying?

So I've been working for the University Avenue Project lately, and for those that don't know about, let me start out by explaining how wicked awesome it is. It takes up six miles of University Ave. in St. Paul. It contains more than 450 photographs all taken by one person. Photographs are beamed out to the avenue via projector every single night until Halloween. It's truly an incredible undertaking. After talking to the site manager, I was told that I might be able to display my photographs on the giants screens as early as June, which made me really excited. It looks like I have some work to do.

As fate would have it, I'm returning to New Orleans on May 16th to continue Two Years and Two Hundred Square Feet, which also gives me just enough to re-edit my book and submit it to the Photography Book Now competition. If I timed it properly, I could advertise my book at the same as the pictures were being beamed out to the avenue. Hopefully it all works out that way. Wish me luck? I'll be blogging from the New Orleans, regardless of the what happens with the book or show, so keep an eye on this blog. As usual, I'll welcome comments, critiques, etc. while I'm down there.
