On View: Other’s “Shallow Lake” at MOHS exhibit
Troy Lovegates aka Other recently traveled to Copenhagen for his solo show, “Shallow Lake” at MOHS exhibit. Painting collage-style portraits, Other fragments his subjects into cacophonies of Pop Art-inspired geometric forms and vivid colors. But underneath the kaleidoscopic shapes, Other’s work depicts people that appear dejected and pushed out by society. Check out some of of the works in the show below and take a look at Other’s new mural in Copenhagen, photos courtesy of Henrik Haven. “Shallow Lake” is on view through June 29.
Shot in partnership with Springbook Nature Center, the photo series captures beautiful studio-style portraits of birds taking flight as they’re released back into the wild.

An Australian territory, Christmas Island lies some 2,600 kilometers north-west of Perth in the middle of the Indian Ocean. While just 1,500 people live there, it is home to an estimated 120 million crabs.
Echolilia: A Father’s Photographic Conversation with His Autistic Son. Timothy Archibald uses his camera to find an emotional bridge to his son Photographs and text from the book Echolilia: Sometimes I Wonder
My eldest son was born in 2001. He was always a kid who went to the beat of his own drummer. When he was 5, we began making photographs collaboratively as a way to find some common ground and attempt to understand each other. Soon after we began the project, Elijah was diagnosed on the autistic spectrum. Though the diagnosis gave me the words and history to understand my son better, it didn’t take away the mystery and the need to try to find an emotional bridge to him.”Echolilia” is an alternate spelling of a more common term, “echolalia,” used in the autistic community to refer to the habit of verbal repetition and copying that is commonly found in autistic kids’ behavior. I liked the idea of it: photography is a form of copying. Kids are a form of repetition. And looking at my kid with photography allowed me to see myself a new
