The Global Recession and Other Issues

February 13, 2010

Join Us Tuesday Evening in Brooklyn will celebrate the work of the winners of their Crisis and Opportunity competition at Powerhouse Arena in DUMBO, Brooklyn, New York on Tuesday, Feb, 16th. Along with the exhibit, there will be a panel discussion by top photographers and photo editors. This could be a real nice get together for photojournalists, editors and others to discuss the current situation for making work and publishing it. I will be there along with Lucien Perkins, Ed Kashi, Lori Grinker and SDN founder/director Glenn Ruga. FYI, Glenn is also the new director of the Photographic Resource Center in Boston.


The Wednesday blizzard that blew through Holyoke canceled Chuck Stern’s retrospective reception. The exhibit goes on and the opening will become a closing reception on March 10th, 2010 from 11-1:00. That’s a great day to visit Holyoke Community College because it is also the day of Vivian Leskes’ and my slide show presentation about Central Asia. You will hear more about it as the time approaches. Here’s the flyer we just created.

OK, I realize that our presentation is the same time as Chuck’s opening. Vivian’s talk will be an hour and then you can go over to hear Chuck speak. I consider that a win-win situation.

Long time readers of my Asia Central blog may recall that my Russia visa was cancelled before we got to the chess capital of the World, Elista in Kalmykia. That’s what our crazy title is referring to.

My show with Robert Aller and David Prifti at the Valley Photo Center at 1500 Main Street in Springfield, Mass. will be open beginning Tuesday, Feb 16th. The hours are something like 11-2. I think that’s to get the Tower Square lunch traffic. To insure that you do catch it open, consider coming to our reception on Sunday, Feb 21st, from 1-4. The three artists will be there.

    I love the title for your talk. Brilliant, with or without the context-giving story.
