Lori gave a very inspiring presentation on an important aspect of photography. Her work has appeared in numerous magazines and newspapers – LIFE , NYT, LAT to name a few. Lori’s work focuses mainly on community and creating a visual of how we can be there for each other. You may visit her website for more about her projects. Very positive feedback has been received from several members. Here is a comment from Ray Schneider “I saw great photographs and learned valuable insights into photography and the human condition. Thanks!”. Her work demonstrates the important and powerful role photography can play in documenting and sharing stories of those around us and be of benefit to programs.

August 2018 - James Curtis

James Curtis

Jim Curtis gave an excellent presentation on “Learning From The Great Photographers”. This was a great lead in for our September meeting discussion. It has been suggested by several members that we have Jim return and give a more detailed presentation on perhaps three photographers and their work. Look for this program in the future!
