Chronology

 
2001 Being laid off from a job created time to pursue photography again after a very long gap in time. I spent a lot of time looking at photo books and discovered a haunting book on the work of Francesca Woodman that opened my eyes on what was acceptable in the field, how personal it could be and how far it could travel away from the Ansel Adams style that I was familiar with.
   
2002 Attended a year long Photography Atelier at Radcliffe Institute of Advanced Study. This sounds loftier than it was. What it did was create a safe place to take chances and just enough deadlines to keep me on track.
   
2005 Attended three weekend workshops workshops at The Woodstock Center for Photography. I took something away from each workshop but enjoyed Keith Carter the most.
   
2006 Late in the summer I went to my first summer fair since I was a kid and found the project I was hoping for. Having to wait all winter to get back to it was terrible.
   
2008 The international portfolio reviews; FotoFest in Houston, Powerhouse Books in Brooklyn and Review Santa Fe gave me the affirmation and confidence I needed to continue my summer fair series.
