A Mountain of Connections: Georgia – Tennessee Photographers, part one

Recently I read the short story by raconteur Donald Davis, called “See Rock City” in the book by the same name (subtitled “A Story Journey Through Appalachia”; August House, 1996). It made me laugh out loud, and I decided this is the right time to write about those photographers who have that Tennessee-Georgia connection. In this […]

Wednesday Website: Looking at Luminous-Lint

I want to begin this new year with a review of the website luminous-lint.com, launched in 2005, and ten years old as of December 2015.

Off My (Virtual) Shelf – Three How-To-Do-It Books

For the last several months I thought about reviewing three books I have on my virtual bookshelf. Since I purchased these three e-books in late 2014 and early 2015, I think more than half-way through 2015 is about time I do it, don’t you? I love having reference books available to me as e-books, and […]

Tuesday Thoughts and Touching Base

In early April I was surprised and pleased to be invited to present at “Photographing the Re-Imagined Self: Early Black Portraiture in South Africa and the United States.” The invitation came from John Edwin Mason, […]
