Hello Alaskan Friends.
I will be making 200 free portraits in Anchorage this week. This Friday, February 6th, from 5:30PM to 7:30PM, anyone can come to the International Gallery and get their portrait taken in front of a beautiful Alaskan mountain backdrop. I will print a 4"x6" photo for the sitter, which will be available beginning Sunday Feb 8th. Just come back to the gallery at your convenience and take your photo off the wall. The International Gallery of Contemporary Art is open Tuesday-Sunday, noon to 4PM.
Portraits are also available by appointment. Contact me at info (at) zoestrauss (dot) com if you're into getting your portrait made but can't make it over on Friday.

Thanks to Marc for all his help! Marc, you are super!
The one and only Ms. Chelsea Bailey in front of the test backdrop.
One of these images will be the backdrop, most likely the bottom one. But you can't go wrong with any of them.
Unrelated, I was blown away by the work of this guy who submitted the 2 photos below to the International Gallery for an open call of Freeze installation shots. The IGCA opted not to hang them with the other photos of the recent Freeze festival, probably because they are not of the Freeze festival but rather randomly submitted photos of a topless woman in high waisted pants and a guy who is "photo says it all, no need for words." Whoa!
I'm pretty sure the title for the bottom one is, "My New Bride Arrived Via Dog Sled Today."
