‘The State of Publishing’
, a conversation roundtable.
After 10 years away from my home state of North Carolina, gathered the same people I had worked with, some of them retired, to talk together with others in the industry. Not only photographers or commissioning editors for old-school newsjournalism, but also new-school media-makers, too. We had a fascinating conversation about the work of writing, and publishing, and ‘the state’ of it: a snapshot, for that moment in time. This was an installation with a very strong bent on wordsmithing, and why it even matters. A lot.

‘Simplicity in Composition’
Visual Art Exchange
Pecha Kucha Night Raleigh
