MHC 175 Recap

Hard to believe only a week ago I was just finishing the installation of “Workplace” in the library at Mount Holyoke College, and that the work is already down, but what a few days! And what an immensely rewarding experience. Students, alumnae, staff, and faculty were able to see the work over November 7-10 as part of Mount Holyoke College’s 175th Anniversary celebration, and the resulting discussion and feedback was better than I could have hoped for. Thank you to everyone who assisted me with this project, loaned me their shoes, and came to see the work in person!

Women in Photography Night at the Photographic Resource Center

I have been volunteering with the Photographic Resource Center (PRC) at Boston University since last October, and have greatly enjoyed the various events and opportunities they offer. The organization truly is one of the best resources for photographers in New England. I was very excited to have the opportunity to share my work at one of their peer-review nights last Thursday. Lisa Kessler, a professor at Endicott College, hosted the night in which I, Leslie Jardine, Barbara Trachtenberg, Paris Visone, and Ryan McMahon shared our work. The conversation was lively, and the work shared showed a wide breadth of photographic interests and the stellar quality of work happening in the Boston area.

Another Day at the . . . Studio

home studio

So sorry for the long (very long) break between posts! But good news: I have started a new photo project! The tentative title for the series is “Workplace,” and will be portraits of my current and former coworkers’ shoes. There’s much work to be done yet, but I’m so pleased with how the shoots have been going so far that I had to share. So here are two of my current favorites as a teaser:

black and pink cheetah print high heel

Once the series is complete, I’ll post it on my website and post about it here as well. Can’t wait to show you the finished series!
