Larry Fink speaks out in Natick

Digital Silver Imaging sponsored Larry Fink at the CIPNE conference in Natick, MA on Sunday 4/5/09.  Larry shared some of his older work from his book, Social Graces and Boxing, along with other great images from his career.  He has a wry sense of humor and welcoming irreverence for what one would expect when photography the Clintons or high fashion.  His square images, (all shot with real film!) allow us to see these events from new angles and perspectives.  The backs of womans' legs, trays of glasses, and Obama descending the jetway with a jet engine in the foreground give us a view into Larry's way of seeing the world.  "I really like circles" he said at one point and I found myself looking at each image and searching for all those circles, like Hirshfeld and Nina.  I appreciated his sense of humor and the stories he shared with us, like being thrown back 10 feet by the secret service while trying to get a shot of Obama.  
He was available after the talk and signed copies of his books and spoke with us more about life on his farm in PA.

Lisa Garner Gallery at New England School of Photography

Tonight at 7 pm the New England School of Photography rededicates its gallery space to our dear friend Lisa Garner. Her husband Ron Cowie says this about Lisa and the exhibit -
The images collected focus on her connection to friends and family. This is not a comprehensive show by any means. The volume of her images is overwhelming. Editing was difficult in order to stay within budget. Lisa never liked too much to be spent on her. The beauty of her images almost defeat the sting of her passing. Thank you all for the love, support and, interest this year. I am humbled and grateful.
Love survives. Ron
Eric and I knew Lisa as a student at NESOP, a customer at Campus Camera & Electronics, and as a friend & fellow photographer. She will always be missed.
