I was asked by Cermak Rhoades, an architectural firm to produce some images they can display in a new construction they are finishing.   What fun, to be able to wander the streets and shoot whatever strikes me.

It's been forever since my blog post. Life changes and a stream of work have kept things busy. Trying to think of something to say along with each photo is never an easy task for me.

Recently, I have joined the masses and created a face book page for my business.  I have found that the flexibility of this medium and the ease and speed it allows me to make timely updates is excellent.  WIth all this in mind, I will be using
face book to keep you up-to-date with my goings on. 

Here is the link.

I met Lester while working for the Milwaukee Area Rescue Mission. He was so soft-spoken, I had to lean in close to hear what he was saying. Lester stared into the camera with a "here is who I am" look that I hope to achieve with all those I photograph. With Lester, he let me in right away.

San Miguel Middle School

I have done work for San Miguel Middle School for at least the past 4 years. I, recently learned that they have fallen victim to the recession and will be closing after this school year. San Miguel bridges the educational inequities affecting Latino immigrant youth. It is clear how the school fills the kids with not just knowledge but a strong sense of value, which makes them and their parents so very proud. Makes me sad.

Mary lives in a shelter in Durham, North Carolina. Asking her if it would be ok to take her photo felt invasive and even exploitive. Although her manner is gentle and kind, she has battled demons and endured hardship. She told me that "after what she had been through, having her photo taken was not difficult." I wonder if I would have been able to do the same if I were her.

Skipping Along

It's been too long since I have done a post. I really appreciate the concern of several subscribers who have written inquiring about my well-being. I have been very busy with work, personal projects, teaching and enjoying life. I also find myself in a state of transformation that is filling me with renewed spirit and value for what really is important. Paradoxically, my photographs have been both easier to make and visually stronger.

In an effort to make up for this "lost time", I am going to post images, both work-related and personal in a spate. Thanks to all of you who follow this.

This photo of Grace is for an up-coming Diabetes Prevention campaign and is a good reflection of my current state of being.
