Took an absolutely wonderful class on cyanotype and anthotype with Sean Blocklin, through Los Angeles Center of Photography. It was great fun, and I feel like I learned a tremendous amount.

I felt very fortunate to attend an LACP Webinar today by Aline Smithson on creative solutions for mid-career photograpers in terms of moving your work and career further. It was incredibly generous, helpful, thought provoking and gave me lots of pause to stop and consider all my most recent new work.

I took an LACP  weekend workshop with Ann Elliot Cutting on still life photography and lighting. It was a new area to me, at least the technical parts, and I found it very inspiring. I have been practicing ever since, and thinking about how to develop a narrative that connects images.

With the incredibly generous support and enthusiasm of dnj gallery owner Pamela Schoenberg, I am so pleased to announce that the exhibit "inside/out" will be shown at dnj from September 10-October 30, 2016.
Many thanks to Pamela and to her gallery manager, Corey Grayhorse for all they have done to exhibit this project.

I would also like to thank The Help Group for the continual support, encouragement and hard work that has contributed so much to this project.

"inside/out" is an exhibition of photography and written word created during two photography projects conducted at Village Glen School, an environment created to support individuals with diverse talents, strengths and needs, many of whom are on the autism spectrum. The exhibit also includes portraits of the young people which I took at the end of our projects together, and the students written response to that image of themselves. I hope you can join us at the opening to celebrate this work.
