I survived the last two semesters of online teaching and am very looking forward to heading back into the classroom/darkroom in the fall.
I’m doing a book of my self-portrait series AutoWorks with Peanut Press (thank you Ashly and David) due out in the fall.
GOOD NEWS CONNECTED TO BAD BAD NEWS
I’ve spent a lot of time and have a lot of good friends in Myanmar where the situation since the coup continues to be terrible and terrifying. Yet the courage, strength, imagination, dedication, audacity and creativity of the valiant protestors is tremendously impressive, ingenious and inspiring.
PrintforCrisis offered the work of 90 photographers for sale (in editions of 10) with all the proceeds going to support organizations promoting freedom of expression and protesting the takeover of Myanmar by a ruthless military junta intent on sending the country back to the Dark Age.
- So far, no summer travel plans (big sigh here).
- Instead, I’ll use the time to attack a hefty backlog of work.
- And I’ll continue working on my Blursday series. For a long time now, I’ve thought of NYC as monochromatic (one of the reasons I travel is to counteract color deprivation). But no, the Blursday pix are turning out to be surprisingly super vibrant. You can see a bunch of them on my website.
