Here are just a few of the things that are keeping us busy.
The Image Flow hosted the live judging of PhotoPhilanthropy’s Activists Awards on Saturday. It was a full and fascinating day! Close to 50 photo essays were critiqued and culled down to finalists by a panel of 5 impressive judges: Margaret Aquirre, Phil Borges, Alexa Dilworth, John Isaac & Denise Wolff. A winner and 2 finalists were awarded in each of these three categories: Amateur, Student and Professional. Liz Hingley’s image (above) is part of her series, The Jones Family, that won The Activists Award in the Professional Category.
In January, the first session of our About Your Camera Workshops began. Photo Essentials I, II and Take Control students are here on a weekly basis, exploring their curiosity and passion for photography! The second session will begin in March.
- Our printers are humming with the work of Hendrik Paul. His show at The Image Flow opens March 16. We are printing half of the pieces digitally, and Hendrik will be making silver gelatin prints of the other half. Stay tuned for the opening details. It promises to be a great show!
- Tim Porter (Action & Sports class teacher) is headed to Oaxaca, Mexico to take a workshop with renowned photographer, Mary Ellen Mark. He’ll be showing Ms. Mark, and the other workshop participants, his brand new portfolio that we printed for him.
- Stories For Change, a documentary exhibit, with works by Nancy Farese, founder and Board Chair of PhotoPhilanthropy, will open at The World Affairs Council in San Francisco. We always enjoy printing Nancy’s powerful images. The exhibit will be on display from February 5 through March 28, with an artist reception February 7.
We are very excited to have Gary Yost, a Mill Valley based photographer, creating a blog series for us about his West Peak Project. Gary is a beautiful story teller. We think you will enjoy reading his blog and learning about his thought process on this project.
