I’m Sort of Bicoastal!

You may recall that 40 of my images were featured in a 2018 exhibit about the historic Library of Congress collection at the fabled Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles. Well, somebody out there likes me – or at least my work.  Right now my photographs and those of Camilo José Vergara are highlighted in a year-long “L.A. Murals” exhibition at The Music Center’s Walt Disney Concert Hall.  It’s a fact, Jack: I love, and love to photograph, murals!

A Whole Lot in Common

Creative Commons is a nonprofit organization after my own heart.  It gathers a host of creative works that others may use freely, without copyright or royalty restriction.  That’s exactly what I’m doing with my 52,000 images on the Library of Congress online site.  Creative Commons kindly produced this detailed and lovely piece about me.

Bring the Museum Home

That’s not my slogan.  It’s Meural’s.  Founded in 2014, Meural has created customer-selected art and fine photography on rotatable “digital canvases,” surrounded by actual fine frames.  I am thrilled that Meural is now featuring and promoting my images, including, recently, those of noteworthy American scenes as well as historic Route 66 in particular.

My Resolution Revolution

As those who know a focal length from an f-stop may know, I carry and almost exclusively use a 151-megapixel Phase One camera, which produces unparalleled resolution. My Phase One dealer, Digital Transitions in NYC, profiles photographers from time to time, and this time was my time.  And Dorothy’s!

American Libraries

One of the things I look for on the road are beautiful or unique libraries, partly because I love them and partly because the Library of Congress—the greatest library of in the world—likes them, too, for obvious reasons. The LoC and Norton Publishers have just put out a book about historic American libraries, and I am pleased that it chose my images not only for the front and back cover but for each and every color image (21 in all) in the book .  This is the spectacular George Peabody Library in Baltimore, Maryland.  Not your corner birdhouse library, eh?

W3 and Me

A lot of you tell me you like this Web site. (Thank you!) And so do the folks who judge such things.  At the most recent W3 awards competition – the crème de la crème in the Web site field – the Bates Creative Agency (which designed the site) and I hauled in four biggies for it, including Best in Show.  (Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.  Thank you!)

Oh to Be on Prodibi

Prodibi Pixel is an online magazine that delivers a “weekly dose of stunning full-resolution images from top photographers.”  I was pleased to be in that number in the edition that featured a veritable gallery of some of my faves, including this one of “Uncle Bob” Beringer, a historical interpreter at an authentic early-Texas sharecropper’s cabin on the George Ranch Historical Park.

The Voice of America is special to me, because my dear husband, Ted, worked there for 24 great years and, even before I got him on the road with me, served as its Americana reporter.  So when his former colleague, Julie Taboh, asked to profile me and my work, I jumped at it.  Be sure to read while these two images in the story are special, too!
