ABOUT George Billis Gallery: After establishing a successful contemporary art gallery in New York, George Billis opened his Los Angeles gallery in 2004. With galleries in Chelsea and Culver City, George Billis Gallery provides a dynamic exchange of contemporary artists between the art centers of New York and Los Angeles. The gallery shows painting, photography, sculpture, and mixed media works and is dedicated predominantly to exhibiting emerging to mid-career artists with a focus on Southern California artists.
In our busy lives it is hard to keep up to date on what artists are doing. I use a variety of emails and promo cards to update collectors, curators, publishers, and reviewers on my recent shows.
Recently I sent an email to Kat Kiernan who picked my promo card as promo card of the week and posted it on her blog.
Kat Kiernan is Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Don’t Take Pictures and owner and Director of The Kiernan Gallery in Lexington, Virginia
Many thanks Kat!

NEW YORK, NY – I am honored to announce that my series Tempus Incognitus was recognized in the PDN Photo Annual 2014 as one of the top fine art personal photography projects.
I extend my heartfelt thanks to PDN and the judges of the PDN Photo Annual 2014 for choosing his series. I also extends my congratulations to the other winners.
To start seeing my winning images on my website, you can got to this link:
The PDN Photo Annual website (click on image to open window on PDN):
Empty hotel rooms from all over the world form the basis of these works, all shot in multiple exposures over time in slide film, with no post-exposure or digital manipulation. The rooms are electric with acidic color, yet spare and detached by virtue of their transient energy and occupation. The perimeters of shifted space and time are blurred, giving a result both classic and contemporary.

FotoFest is a truly wonderful event that allows photographers to show their photography to curators. I’ve been very success in getting work shown directly due to meeting great curators at FotoFest.

Brad nos reta.
Brad challenges us.
Después de todo, a través de sus imágenes, estás viendo el tiempo pasar transformado en color. ¿Cada cuánto esto pasa en tus días?
After all, through his images, you are seeing time pass and transformed in color. How often does that happen in your days?

Check this out, Google actually mapped the interior of my art photography show at De Santos Gallery in Houston. I’ve included this new 360degree “installation shot” to my main page. Just scroll down to the installation show on the main page, then do the normal Google maps buttons… www.bradcarlile.com
Currently I only have the 360degree map for laptops and tablets, I disabled it for iPhone for now.
Let me know how it works and what you think!
Below is a jpeg that links to my website (scroll to near bottom of main page)…

As a result of showing my work to JJ Estrada Toledo at Photolucida, he asked me to be part of a group show in Guatemala City. The show is “GeoGráfica” which will be held in the Fototropía of La Fototeca. The show opens on 29th May with my 30″x40″ images. For those on facebook, https://www.facebook.com/lafototeca

My updated resume at: http://www.bradcarlile.com/bio/resume.html I’m also working on many other very exciting opportunities that came out of the Photolucida portfolio review.
My attempt to translate the “GeoGráfica” show’s statement:
“What? Who? Where are we?”
Photography is something that is constantly responding and in turn questioning.
The need to interpret our environment through the graphic language gives shape and meaning to a new visual language that is common, global.
This group exhibition explores the image beyond the photographic impulse, beyond the accuracy the surface is recorded on. And in an attempt to have control, and leaves a trail of images that manifest our existence.
