I had the pleasure of photographing at the well funded and gorgeously situated Janelia Farms laboratory, which is part of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, earlier this winter. There you can find people passionate about what they do and with the money to pursue that passion; ie Nirvana.
It was wonderful to work with reporter/editor Mary Beth Gardiner who is married to DC photographer Paul Fetters. Everything a girl could ask for: interesting subjects, great display, a mosquito backpack and butterfly room.
Thanks Mary Beth and Howard Hughes. May the grey goose rise again!
JUST got the film back and this frame is sandwiched between an image of a Petrobras Oil rig in the Atlantic and scantily clad girls cavorting in a waterfall as we (a friend and I not the royal we) practiced some photo geek funnery testing out our Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue shooter stuff. It’s really quite a contact sheet. Love that.
A few months ago I got an email from Imogen, art director of Harvest Magazine, a literary magazine published out of Victoria. She asked for permission to publish a photograph from my series on Southern writers, A Sense of Place, to go along in conjunction with a piece they had. I sent off the photo and thought nothing more of it. Today I got issue two of Harvest magazzine, the spring/summer 2008 edition which is of course, my fall & winter. It is a garden of delights. I have not had time to read any of the text yet, (I am inundated with new christmas photobooks and reading and no time to indulge!), but the illustrations & design are so beautiful it breaks my heart how much effort these people have put into their product. Well done and where can I get copies to send to my friends? Please sample for yourself:
