Dallas Soon: PDN On The Road This Monday/Tuesday!

I’ve had a very interesting but short trip to NYC, attending the launch of American Photography 23 (you can still view the 300+ images from last year’s AP22 by clicking here) and will catch exhibitions by friends Beth Dow (at jen bekman) and John Chervinsky and Alison Carey (at Peer) before I head out early tomorrow for our next stop on the PDN On The Road tour:

DALLAS. Photojournalist Ed Kashi will be joining us for the Multimedia segment, and Vincent Dixon will be our featured commercial photographer. If you haven’t heard yet about how much there is to learn at these seminars, you can read what participants have shared here. I hope to see many of you there!
