All pictures are from "the school bus series" by Gregory Thorp

from winter, to spring, to summer from "the school bus series" by Gregory Thorp

To celebrate the glorious transition of winter to spring, the Holyoke Community College Photography Department has invited Gregory Thorp to be a visiting artist on Wed. March 21st at 11:00 in the Media Arts Center in the HCC Campus Center Building. Gregory will give a presentation and critique students’ work.

Gregory Thorp is described in his most recent book, Rivers Run Past, as “America’s premier photographer of our inland waterways”. I don’t think Gregory will be showing his water work, but I did give him the go ahead to present whatever he wants. I am hoping that he will talk about the process of making great pictures while creating his many remarkable portfolios.

Here is a scan of Gregory’s artist statement for his most recent “school bus series”.

    Thanks so much for sharing this link with me and for the invitation to the show at the Forbes. Jane and I spent a delightful afternoon at the exhibit at the Forbes and we are so very glad that you made sure that we knew about it. I loved see the creativity and variety of the works of my neighbors. It was a very memorable experience that also included a great walk in the spring woods and then a couple of hours enjoying the delights of the periodical room at the library, followed by a delicious meal at Viva. Hard to beat that combination and it all began with the arrival of a note in the mailbox. Thank you very much for sharing all this with me.
    Happy Spring.
