Photoessays/Bodies of Work
– Interesting photoessay on the Inuit peoples
– Sharing indigenous culture through photography
– If you go all the plants will die I included this, in part, because it is reminiscent of my current book project on “Senescence.”

– MattK: Getting the best fall colors

– Tom Heaton: How does the scene look three months later?

– BW street photography award winners For my camera club friends who participate in competitions, I suggest you view the work of Australian Sam Ferris who took 2nd place.

    So cool. Thanks for this. Loved the street photography winners and the quotes. True that one only needs one fan to be successful…Want to learn more about your current project of Senescence. Interesting from a scientific, aging and longevity point of view as well as risk factors for Alzheimer’s and other diseases…
