Due to the imense popularity of the poster series, a sales team
has been developed for in person one on one sales to galleries, gift
shops and other commercial entities that present a sales
opportunity. This sales team is able to not only generate sales but
is available to follow-up on any leads that are presented. To that
end any and all sales leads for the posters can and will be followed
up on in a timely fashion. The sales team is charged with creating
sales opportinities and ensuring that sales and exposure to the
posters are ongoing continually. If anyone needs a personal sales
call made please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and one of our sales
professionals will respond quickly.
Many of the posters continue to receive very positive feedback.
The artists always appreciate such encouragement and support.
Additional new poster galleries will be presented and made available
in the near future. Watch this newsletter for those as they are
announced and posted.

The Voice Behind The Lens - Michael Dubiner
IT'S A WHAT?|
(A false morel of course)
One early morning in April I was walking my dog in our
front yard and I came across what appeared to be several
mushrooms in, shall we say, an unusual shape. Not heeding my
own advice, I did not have any camera with me. Worse yet,
instead of rushing into the house and getting one, I came out
a leisurely couple of hours later and the mushrooms had
withered in the Florida heat.
Several days later, as I approached my dogs favorite spot,
the strong musky smell of the fungus was evident several yards
away. This time, as soon as the dog had done her business, I
went into the house, put a close up lens on my Nikon D1X and
shot away. Because the mushroom was in shadow and I was not
using a flash, there was little depth of field. I therefore
wanted to get a shot where the plane of the subject was
parallel to the plane of the CCD.
I had a few other opportunities to make images of these
unusual looking mushrooms over the next week or so. After
that, they were gone. The image I chose to show is the one
that most closely resembles the male sexual organ, which is
what originally drew these fungi to my attention.
I did some research on the Web into this uncommonly shaped
mushroom. I learned that what I was seeing was likely a false
morel. An edible morel is a mushroom that, as it's name
implies, can be eaten. A false morel is a mushroom that
resembles, and is occasionally mistaken, for the edible morel,
with sometimes disastrous results. They are often poisonous.
|Images To Inspire|
|Ken Windser Internet Art Journalist All good
things have to come to an end, and I guess I have had a good
run for my money as the saying goes. The fact is that pressure
of time and constraints on actually showing individual images
have conspired to make it very difficult for me to continue
Over the past months I have managed to show you thousands
of images from Photographers and artists world-wide. It has
been a pleasure to have been a part of Pixiport, and I am sure
that others will take over where I leave off. This is not the
last edition, that will be next month when I present my own
very personal in- depth look at the images and Photographers
who feature on the Pixiport site itself, my own way of saying
"thank you" to my hosts.
This month, with permission from the Photographer, I am
going to take an in-depth look at a site which "hit me between
the eyes" when I saw it for the first time only a week or so
JACKY LEPAGE is a Photographer from Belgium who came to my
notice through his images of Jazz musicians. Oh no - I can
hear you moan, I know Ken likes jazz, is this going to be just
an excuse to feature boring people playing what we consider to
be "boring music."
Far from it folks - this is something rather special, here
we will see images of grace and power, images of the famous,
and the not so famous, and, well yes - people we aint even
I will look at his non jazz work a little later, but right
now, straight into the images.

|We welcome Patrick Loehr to our galleries. Three
galleries of" Art
Art" and a wonderful unique "Western
Gothic" gallery creating art that will have you smiling.
Photography is a tool I use to better understand my place
in the world. Ultimately the images I create are an attempt to
connect with the people, places and ideas that came together
to bring me into the world
I am a Colorado based photographer specializing in digital
photographic manipulation. My image making is an exploration
of the passage of time. This exploration is expressed in
different ways through different subject matter. I often find
myself examining points in history where fact blurs into
fiction, where truth becomes myth, and the familiar becomes
My Western Fine Art imagery features subjects that exist
somewhere between the old and the new west. The cowboy imagery
explores a vanishing lifestyle unique to the American west.
These images examine the historical roots of a distinct breed
of western character.
The landscape imagery in this series explores the
complexity of the modern west by interpreting a semi- rural
landscape undergoing rapid change.
The manipulation techniques used throughout this series
strive to exhibit a raw and organic aesthetic essential for
the subject matter. These multi-layered images are created by
deconstructing and eventually rebuilding an image through a
process of merging layers of photographed organic material.
The Western Gothic Gallery represents a different approach
to interpreting history. This series evolved through
exploration of a favorite theme, namely our collective
relationship to a forgotten past. I've always been interested
in the points of family history where facts are muddied and
often exaggerated, and eventually reality is transformed into
myth. This series takes elements from my own family history
and twists them into something completely unrecognizable.
In my Landscape and Architecture imagery I often explore
themes of isolation, decay and rebirth. I am drawn to these
themes because, to me, they represent mortality and define the
nature of human history.
