I’m about midway through my week of guest Instagramming on the New Yorker account and it’s been a great experience so far. If you’re on Instagram, you can check it out at @newyorkermag or through my handle @erinbrethauer.

Hi all- I’m really excited to be guest hosting the New Yorker’s Instagram feed this week with iPhone images from Camp Lakey Gap that I took over the course of two weeks in July. There will be a mix of images from a week of 4-10 year old high-functioning kids with autism and a week of adults with autism. I hope you’ll check it out!
I just posted some images to my website of the show up at the Asheville Area Arts Council gallery. If you can’t make it to the gallery before April 27th, take a look here.
This American Life has a great episode this week about the intertwined path of two doctors (both coincidentally with the last name Gilmer). I got to take this portrait of Dr. Benjamin Gilmer for their website at his clinic on Cane Creek Road just outside of Asheville. His office is actually just down the road from Jeremy and Amanda, the Cane Creek Valley farmers I followed for a growing season back in 2009. It was neat listening to the episode having met some of the people and visited some of the places in the story. Really grateful for the opportunity to help in a small way with this story – thank you This American Life. I’m a big fan.
Check out the story here.
Friday was the opening for my show at the Asheville Area Arts Council Gallery. It’ll be up until April 27th so if you’re in town, please check it out! There are twelve images from last summer’s visits to Camp Lakey Gap (a camp for people with autism in Black Mountain), five images from New Orleans and five images from Hayward, Wisconsin during the Birkebeiner ski race. Below is a photo of Jon hanging the show. And below that is a group shot at the end of the night Friday. Thanks for taking a look!

The Image, Deconstructed is one of my favorite photography resources and I’m very excited that my Autism Camp work is featured this week along with an interview on the story behind the project. I’m honored to take part. A big thank you to Ross Taylor, Logan Mock-Bunting and the rest of the TID team- they are amazing photographers and people and I really appreciate all the great work they’re doing for the photo community.

The team behind the blog is holding the first TID workshop this weekend in Chapel Hill- great people, I hope to make the next one. Check it out here.
In other news, I have a show coming up in the AAAC gallery in the River Arts District here in Asheville. The show is going up April 9th and will be on view the entire month. I’m going to show two bodies of personal work: one from my wanderings in New Orleans and Wisconsin and the other will be a selection of my autism camp diptychs. Lots to be done.
Come to the show opening on Friday, April 12th from 6-9pm. You can see details from the gallery here.
Thanks for looking!
I know with the election over, you’re probably going through political withdrawal and waxing nostalgic for all the hoopla and drama. No? Well, just in case you need a little taste, I finally posted some photos from the DNC in Charlotte which you can see here.
Thanks for looking! And hope you had a very happy thanksgiving.
