I will have a print along with over 60 other photographers in the Wa Photography Auction being held at 25CPW this coming Thursday.  The event is to raise money to help rebuild communities devastated by the earthquake and tsunami in March.  100% of funds raised will go to benefit Architecture for Humanity. From the Wa website:

The donated auction prints follow the theme of 和 (Wa). This ancient name for Japan also describes a cultural concept which underpins much of Japanese society. It has no direct translation in English, though the closest term that could be applied would be the idea of ‘Harmony’.  We are pleased to feature prints from a diverse range of photographers who have interpreted this theme in a variety of ways and provided us with a unique collection.

25CPW has partnered with Nuru Projects and Sombra Projects, with contributions from Magnum Foundation, The International Center of Photography, and Friends Without a Border.  Also there will be music from Koto player Yumi Kurosawa, American folk band Thomas Wesley Stern and Japanese cuisine from Blue Ribbon with liquid refreshment from Sapporo and Ito En.  For more information on participating artists, and to purchase tickets, please visit Wa Photography Auction.

My intrepid 2011 Large Format Portraiture and Street Photography class at ICP.

My beloved large format ICP class ended last Friday with a bittersweet farewell party complete with a traditional home-cooked Yemen meal. I wish my students the best of luck and look forward to seeing their continued success in any format they choose.  This year was one of my most remarkable with students from Yemen, Canada, Italy, the Netherlands, Buenos Aires and, of course, the US. (You can see last year’s class portrait here.)

Next up, Large Format Narrative Portraiture, taught in a 5 day workshop at Maine Media Workshops slated for June 12-18.
