Wall of Fame: My days at the ASCAP

"Often I spoke with concerned pet owners who mistakenly called the wrong number to report mistreatment to dogs or cats."

 "Colleagues like Peter Burke in Los Angeles arranged many photography opportunities, such as the recording session of Neil Diamond’s 'Cracklin Rosie' hit, documenting songwriters Marilyn and Alan Bergman at their California home, among others.

Monochrome: Black & White Photography from the Permanent Collection

D'Amour Museum of Fine Arts,  Springfield Museums

March 22, 2016–September 25, 2016

"Black and white photography, also known as ‘monochrome’ photography, originated during the mid-nineteenth century and has pervaded to this day, particularly within the genre of documentary photography. This exhibit, drawn from the permanent collection of the D’Amour Museum of Fine Arts, explores the documentary photography genre, juxtaposed with the special exhibit, Photo-Secession: Painterly Masterworks of turn-of-the-Century Photography. Photography critic in the 1970s, John Szarkowski, distilled images down to two categories, “mirrors and windows” stating that “mirrors reveal information about the artist while windows tell more about the world.” This exhibit exemplifies his philosophy and underscores the impact of black and white which elevates a picture beyond simply being “news”; monochrome photography has the power to suggest cultural and critical significance."
