Granite Academy Auction

Just wanted to let everyone know that the auction for Granite Academy was a huge success!  My photos generated almost $6,000 in support of Granite Academy. 

Thank you everyone who took the time to pass it along and additionally to those who participated and were able to support such a wonderful cause.


Granite Academy Auction: Deadline extended!

Hello Friends and Colleagues -

I currently have two of my “Book of Book” photos in an on-line auction to support a Granite Academy, a school serving adolescents with special education needs related to their mental and emotional health.

Thanks to the generosity of my gallery, Edwynn Houk Gallery, the proceeds from the sale of my photos go to Granite Academy.

The auction has been extended until Thursday, September 25, 10 pm.

I wrote a short article showing Abe Morell’s beautiful black and white camera obscuras before, and recently came across some of his color ones that I thought were well worth sharing. They’re all such amazing compositions of both shapes and colors.
