The Next Generation
It was a surprise to me that my daughter has decided to do photography. Even more surprising was the realization that this generation is so much more visually sophisticated. I guess they grow up with a bombardment of images advertised and self generated. It's not uncommon to see her doing homework on laptop with visual windows open—friends present as talking Lilliputians. Or using cell to snap and send. Here's a selection of her lovely images.
Susan Shaw is an internationally exhibited painter and photographer. Private and public collections include the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Shaw is the recipient of two New York State Artist’s Fellowships and 2007/2009 residency fellowships at the Vermont Studio Center.
Kurt Hoss is a freelance photographer capturing the exuberance of
New York City for 35 years. A favorite project has been documenting life in south western Louisiana, culminating in two recent books, Going to Lafayette and Bosco Swamp.
Shaw and Hoss recently received an AVA gold award for video production, as producers of The Mermaid Parade.
