A selection of Shelby Lee Adams Artist Statement from the PhotoAlliance website:

“My work has been an artist search for a deeper understanding of my heritage and myself, using photography as a medium and the Appalachian people as collaborators with their own desires to communicate. I hope, too, that viewers will see in these photographs something of the abiding strength and resourcefulness and dignity of the mountain people…I love these people, perhaps that is it, plain and simple. I respond to the sensual beauty of a hardened face with many scars, the deeply etched lines and flickers of sweat containing bright spots of sunlight…My greatest fear as a photographer is to look into the eyes of my subject and not see my own reflection.”

April 15 & 16th: Kenro Izu in Boston for lecture, opening reception

I just had the pleasure of meeting photographer KENRO IZU at PSPF.  He presented  his own beautiful photographic work, as well as informing us of his extraordinary efforts towards the health of Cambodian children by founding the Angkor Hospital for Children. Many of you have attended, if not donated work to the “Friends Without A Border” auctions where photographers donate collectible prints for auction, the proceeds of which go to the operating costs of the hospital. Photographer supporting another photographer’s mission = a richer community for all with many benefiting.
