For Vivian

I started a tumblr to post living women photographers who inspire me. I’m also using it as an exercise in writing- if they don’t have a wikipedia page and meet the requirements, I am adding a page. My first entry is the wonderful Barbara Kasten- one of the best teachers I’ve had. Her wikipedia entry is currently under review! Follow along if you’d like.

I love this new book from Tammy Mercure. Had heard the story of Mary when I lived in Johnson City, TN, in the late 1980s. This rendition enlarges the tale and shows it in all its gothic glory. The cover is spectacular, too.
