About Star Rush

I am a Seattle-based photographer, writer, and educator. My photography has been exhibited in the United States, London, and Europe as well as presented in electronic magazines Actual Colors May Vary, Askar Magazine, Camerapixo, dodho.com, Resource Magazine, wire.it, and Volksrant. I often write about the intersection of creativity, social networks, and image-making. My writing about connected photography has appeared in iPhoneography.com, wearegrryo.com (formerly wearejuxt.com), dprConnect, EyeEm.com, iPhoneogenic.com, and others. My photographs look at symbols and images of belonging, leaving, arriving, erosion of certainties and corruptions of absolutes among images of people, landscapes, and objects. How can images tell (or not tell) stories which situate past and present as moments of simultaneity?

I have been faculty and educational administrator in higher education, who teaches and writing and literature. I currently serves as Special Assistant for Teaching & Learning at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, Wash., U.S.A. Work and contact information: starrush.net. [Official Website]
