I just got some great news: I won the WHNPA Fall 2008 Lecture Grant so I can visit Syracuse University this spring to lecture to Bruce Strong and David Sutherland’s photojournalism students about my work and the WHNPA project grant I won in 2006.
I am so thankful to live in Washington, DC and be a member of such a great organization like the White House News Photographer’s Association! Truly. It’s a pretty wonderful thing to be able to belong to a group which supports photographers’ ambitions to give back to members of the student community.
Thanks to Chairman Leighton Mark and all the members of the Grant Committee for this awesome award! I am so thankful to be able to give back to my alma mater!
The 2008 ‘Eyes of History’ exhibit opening reception at the Edison Place Gallery is TONIGHT -Thursday, July 17th, beginning at 7:00 p.m. For all the winners, please plan to pick up your second, third and Award of Excellence plaques. If you can’t be there, please have a friend take it… storage space is at a premium. Thanks for your help and I hope you can make it! I’ve seen part of the show and it’s amazing!
