The March Exhibition at the SFWA Gallery is called Homage in honor of International Women's Month. The image above, The Lunch Carriers, is a photograph I took on the Peruvian Amazon last year in a town called Nauta. We watched the women prepare lunches and pack them up to take down to the ferryboats to sell to the travelers and workers. I was impressed by the their interactivity, teamwork, industriousness, as much as by their colorful clothing and cheerful banter. When they began walking to the pier, the 'procession' was a picture in the making.

New Works in February
Mostly in February I worked on the jazz photos (below), but I also have loaded several more photos from France onto my website. Below are six of my favorite black & whites. Check out larger versions of these and others on my website.
And now for the Jazz!
I was really excited to be chosen to provide the photos for the Seven Mile House's first annual Jazz Festival. There is a permanent photo gallery (the "Jazz Wall of Fame") in the club itself and two pages of photographs on the website showing my photos of individual Bay Area jazz musicians, some from the books below and some taken more recently. For those of you who are jazz lovers, this will be a day not to miss! Do check the details at 7milehouse.com/jazzfest.
The books of course ....
The two volumes of Bay Area Jazz and Bluesicians, with a total of 251 local musicians photographed while performing are available on amazon.com (fastest way to get them) or online at www.bayareajazzandbluesicians.com probably a bit cheaper and takes 7 - 10 days to receive them. You can preview some of the pages on either site. If you prefer hand to hand consumerism, they can be purchased at Glen Park's Bird & Beckett Books & Records who just got a new supply, at Noise a really cool record store on Balboa St, San Francisco and The Jazz Conservatory bookstore in Berkeley.
And never out of date, Street Seens can still be had from blurb.com. It's full of street photography from my jaunts here and there in the world, and it's available in both paper and hard cover versions.
You can preview the whole book HERE. It's only available online - purchase details on the preview page.
