Book: Circles Within Circles | Jewish Time Frames

I have just created a book of poetry and photographs exploring Jewish conceptions and celebrations of time. Circles Within Circles: Jewish Time Frames has been created in collaboration with noted poet Sherri Waas Shunfenthal. 

The book is a collection from our work and the associated touring exhibition. It can be previewed and purchased from Blurb Books, including in an ebook format.

Champions | 10 years of covers

I have been doing photography for the terrific student career and technical training organization SkillsUSA for the past 25+ years. Their award-winning student print publication, Champions, is now ten years old. I have had the privilege of shooting every one of the forty covers, in collaboration with their designer, director of publications Tom Hall.

Mr. Dews | Real DC

Mr. Dews lives in the 90-year-old house he was born in, on the edge of the Barry Farms neighborhood in Southeast Washington DC, though he hopes to move soon to senior housing.

Thanks to reporter John Muller for the introduction.
