A life, pocket cameras, and a studio practice.
Posting twice a week and sometimes more!

And while we're on the subject...
The Library of Congress is getting very technorati, putting some of its images up on Flickr. These are more of my favorites both by Dorothea Lange. The "Migrant Mother" is probably the most famous photograph to come out of the WPA project. The WPA (Works Project Administration) provided jobs for photographers and artists, documenting the depression and doing public work projects.
I love the other Lange image here. To me, "Toward Los Angeles" is a perfect expression of depression era America.
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.
