Season of Change | Nov 18

This November, I find myself awash in change. It’s in the air, in the light, profoundly echoed in those who’s lives touch mine. This is my niece, and these are images from a park not far from her house. My niece was the first of her generation to really impact my life. She helped me find the uncle in me. And now she’s on her way to college, on her way. These are the never dry fields of Bear Creek Pioneers Park, for 40 years the home of the Harris County Fair. 2016 was it’s last. Hurricane Harvey made sure of that.

They are together here because they share a place and as images they offer my humble expression of hope, transformation, and a certain communion of understanding.

The Newswomen's Club of New York

This week I had the great honor of having my work included in the Newswomen's Club of New York 2017 Spring Photography Show (and Auction). 

"Established in 1922, The Newswomen’s Club of New York is the only professional organization exclusively for women journalists in the New York metropolitan area. Our membership includes women who work in newspapers, magazines, radio, television, photography and new media. As the news industry undergoes rapid change, we strive to uphold the values that are the hallmarks of good journalism, maintaining the public trust."

Grand Army Plaza

Grand Army Plaza is a gateway to Prospect Park, really a gateway to the Brooklyn that lies outside of the shadows of it's more notorious cousins. When you rise above it, and look back, it all seems so small, this epic theater where we immigrants have come to prove something to ourselves and the world.
