I was fortunate enough to have an opportunity to attend Ed Kashi’s workshop and gallery opening at the new CPAC in Denver, Colorado over the past weekend.
The exhibition, titled Eye Contact was comprised of selected photographs from his thirty year career, showcasing images that were perhaps set aside for their subject’s direct eye contact with the camera. Together, they form an impressive collection of compelling journalistic images.
Ed was gracious enough to attend the opening of the show and stand for a few portraits…
See more of Kashi’s work in the current issue of National Geographic magazine or visit edkashi.com.
Stay tuned for an upcoming post on the workshop…Visual Storytelling with Passion and Purpose.

One month from today, I will be covering the first large powwow of the season in Denver, Colorado. The Denver March Powwow is Colorado’s largest gathering of nations, drawing members from all three Ute tribes.
The Southern Ute Drum has faithfully covered this event for years and will certainly showcase the celebration once again! Stay tuned…

Snowdown revisited….

Almost every community has a celebration, a festival of sorts. In the relatively small mountain town of Durango, Colorado they call theirs Snowdown. A regular carnival of events lasting almost a week and culminating with a light parade and general festiveness…
