Despite unusually cold and windy condition we thoroughly enjoyed what appears to have been a very productive 10 days of photographing in Capitol Reef and Canyonlands National Parks. The trip also provided an opportunity to complete the visit to the overlook of the Dirty Devil River which was so rudely interrupted last fall by an unfortunate car accident.
We attended the Palm Springs Photo Festival. We enjoyed constructive meetings with museum curators, publishers, and gallery directors; and received a plethora of helpful technical advice from seminars and from off-line conversations; and stimulating evening talks.
Karen and Steve's joint show at the Griffin Museum of Photographyremains on view at the Atelier Gallery at the Stoneham Theatre in Stoneham, MA.
