We wish to note the passing of Dith Pran, Cambodian photojournalist, who spent many years of his life publicizing the genocide of the Khmer Rouge as documented in The Killing Fields. Watch his final words in the New York Times video obituary.
Read our main story, about Jim Larimer, a man with a varied past and an exciting future.
Jim has had many careers, from the Operating Room in an Air Force hospital, to a bookmobile in Arapahoe County, Colorado. Through it all he has produced art, "Because I have to." Read his story, and look at his most recent work in Gum Bichromate and Gumoil.
Then take a look at the three workshops featured here, Gum Printing, Then and Now, with Christina Z. Anderson; Photogravure Print Making with Karl Koenig; and a Photography Seminar with David Vestal and Al Weber. One of these workshops is made for you and for your talents.
Check out our Monthly Specials. There are three. They are good buys and well worth your money.
And for the Dick Baker and Charlie Morrell Scholarship, nominate someone with a strong interest in photography whose work shows promise. They will appreciate it, and so will we.
