39 No More

I recently had the pleasure of seeing the exhibit of this artist photographer's blog "project" at the Morris Graves Museum of Art in Eureka, CA., while I was out visiting with my parents, Robert and Martha Haynes for my 41st birthday in June of this year.  Coincidently, my father is on the board for the Morris Graves Museum of Art and the Humboldt Arts Council. If you are ever in Eureka, check out the Museum. It is a wonderful jewel in that small Northern California city.

Mia Semingson is the artist photographer. Her statement off of her blog is as follows:

"I turned 39 on May 7th, 2009. I am documenting my 40th year of life by photographing everyday and posting it on this blog. Each day will in some way reference the previous day's image either visually or conceptually. The project will end on my 40th birthday."

Here is some more information about Mia's exhibit which was featured at the Morris Graves Museum of Art from May 4th through June 19th, 2011. Although it is no longer at the Museum, please check out her blog for her vision.

"Prior to Semingson’s 39th Birthday, she had confronted herself many times with the concept of living in the present moment instead of looking to the past or the future as the present moment ticked by. She has since decided to change her thought process, to slow time down with the aid of a digital camera, and become sensitive to the present moment by literally seeing and photographing what is in front of her each day. As part of this project, each day’s image references the previous day’s either visually or conceptually."

I truly enjoyed the exhibit and wanted to share it with you via her blogspot.
