This summer, I’ll be teaching some workshops and leading monthly critiques at the Durham Arts Council.

On June 18th, I’ll be teaching cyanotype, and on July 17th, I’ll be doing a darkroom orientation/ B&W printing basics workshop.

Critiques will be held on June 25th and July 30th and are open to anyone who has prints to share!

Details about my summer DAC offerings can be found here.

On Worldwide Pinhole Camera Day, Sunday, April 30th, I will be teaching a pinhole workshop at the Scrap Exchange, which is a great resource for cookie tins and other objects to transform into cameras!

I’m very pleased to announce that The Halide Project’s second invitational exhibition, Of Metal & Light will be on view at Gravy Studio in Philadelphia during the month of March.  It was an absolute pleasure to work with photographers Lisa Elmaleh, Sage Lewis, and Lucretia Moroni to put together this amazing show that highlights innovation and the importance of process in photography.

Philadelphia Naval Yard (Superfund series)

Amendment I: “Congress shall make no law… abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press…”

The Founders of this country felt so strongly that “the liberties of the press shall be inviolably preserved” that they included the above provision in the first amendment of the United States Constitution.

To those so-called “constitutionalists” who are so quick to conjure up the Founding Fathers and claim the ability to discern their intentions, typically in defense of the right to bear arms and other pet issues:  It’s time to put your money where your proverbial mouths are and show a true comprehension of the Founders’ concerns by demonstrating a righteous indignation over the Trump administration’s media blackout of the EPA, Department of the Interior, and other government agencies.  Freedom of the press is among the first and foremost of our constitutional rights, and any erosion of it – particularly by the executive branch – should not be tolerated.

Lately, I’ve been doing more reading than printing while I settle into Durham.  I should have more images to share within the next few months, but in the meantime, here is what’s currently on my reading list:

Democracy in America, Alexis de Tocqueville

Profit Over People, Noam Chomsky

This Changes Everything, Naomi Klein

The End of Nature, Bill McKibben

Letters to my Parents, Brassai
