Zen Sutherland, Bigshot Photographer

It looks like (Blog)Asheville's own Zen Sutherland, one of the most artistically engaged people around, the man with 17,000 digital snaps on his Flickr account and 80,000 at home, the current titleholder of Best Art/Photography Blog, will have his photography become part of Asheville's new Hotel Indigo downtown.

The Indigo is also using some of the "squircle" (squared circle) shots he's so fond of taking:


Congrats Zen! Leave him a comment here!

Thanks for the kudos, Jennifer, but i'm hardly a bigshot! The beauty is that by posting heavily on Flickr and tagging meticuously the interior design people found me and, wanting to use locals, picked some of my photos to pitch their proposal to the Indigo Hotel muckety-mucks.

Surprisingly, they bought into the proposal and the interior people say that Indigo usually keep their wall photomurals around for about 3 years and then change them. So, that's a chance for some other photographer to get into the act!

Congratulations Zen. I can see why they would like to use some of his photos, you can get lost in them in a very meditative and calming manner.
