PLAINFIELD: Photographer Theodore "Teo" Kaye at Blinking Light
Artist Reception: Sun. Dec. 2, 11 am - 1 pm Exhibit Runs: Nov. 23, 2012 - Jan. 27, 2013
Award-winning international photographer Theodore “Teo” Kaye to exhibit at the Blinking Light Gallery, Plainfield, Vt., featuring highlights from his travel and work in Central Asia, including scenes of daily life, landscapes, and “buzkashi,” Central Asia’s typically fiercer version of polo on horseback.
Born in the U.S., Theodore “Teo” Kaye grew up in China, India and Indonesia, where he discovered a passion for photographing the world. Majoring in Film at Yale, he studied Uzbek and Farsi and went to work as a newspaper editor and mountain guide in Central Asia before settling on a professional international photo career. In 2011, his series on Buzkashi Riders won a Gold award in the Prix de la Photographie and 2nd place in the International Photography Awards.
A former staff photographer at Rhythms Monthly, a Chinese-language geographic magazine, he has covered stories in China, Taiwan, Japan, India, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Ireland and Great Britain. His work has been featured in the New York Times, the International Herald Tribune, the Associated Press, McSweeney’s, CNN, the Asahi Shimbun and the National Film Board of Canada.
Teo has ties to the local area. He is married to Plainfield native Leah Jamele, daughter of James and Suzanne Jamele. Teo and Leah currently call Tajikistan home, where Leah teaches local first grade students.

We hope to broaden the range of venues and artists under general discussion with the goal of fostering greater aesthetic awareness, stronger support for the visual arts, and the creation of a critical community in Vermont, for Vermont.
Vermont Art Zineencourages contributions from Vermont art critics and reviewers, as well as unsolicited contributions on topics in the visual arts from a diverse range of artists’ voices from around the Green Mountain State.
Our facebook page is updated frequently with headlines and images. Please COMMENT and discuss what's happening on VAZ and in the visual arts community! Post your own news and links!
How to submit a PRESS RELEASE
We'd love to post your venue's press release. Please send us a prose paragraph of text about the exhibition/event AND one or more jpeg images. Please DO NOT send just an electronic exhibition card. We reserve the right to decline inadequate press releases.
We want Vermont Art Zine to be a commons for our Vermont visual arts community, with information and pictures about shows, artists, and venues around the state. To make that happen, we need artist/writer participation from many, many different voices in many different places in Vermont.
Do you have ideas about issues and hot-button topics in the visual arts? We post questions for response and debate. Let us hear from you!

How To Add Your Link
If you're a Vermont artist or a visual arts presenter, we'd be happy to list your website or blog (one of each) in our LINKS. Send your link to email@example.com. If you'd put up a reciprocal link, that would be great!
Blog Listing Policy
Vermont Art Zine offers to link to one blog per Vermont artist. Send your request to the addresses above. We reserve the right to remove blogs from this list if they have been without a new post for 6 months. If you use your blog more as a website (that is, you put it up and then more or less leave it, with just occasional updates), ask us to list it under VT Artists instead.
We will be happy to link to one website for each Vermont artist. If you have a website and a blog, we will link to one of each. A Vermont artist is someone who resides in the state for more than half the year. Artist websites should be about the visual artwork of the artist. It's OK to sell through your site, but it should be your own work.
