After a years-long hiatus of the project, I am starting to get back on track with developing contacts for the photo series, Beekeepers of the Subarctic. My target subject areas are Alaska, Canada, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, and I expect the project to take about two years once initiated. I hope to complete the first shots this coming fall/winter, in Alaska and Canada. So if there was ever a time to reach out to your subarctic beekeeping friends and have them contact me, this would be it. (I imagine the phone will be ringing off the hook any minute now...)
I am potentially going to be speaking twice in the NYC area in the upcoming end of spring/early summer. Pending final date and location, I will likely be doing a presentation of my talk Poverty: Lessons Learned from Photography to the meetup attendees of the New York Effective Altruism group. Likewise, I may be doing a presentation on lighting in photography...details to come once I work out the specifics with the group commissioning it. Both events will be open to the public, I believe. Stay tuned!
Going to be taking on a translator or two for some essays that may get published in a few other languages. French, German, Norwegian. Throw me a line if interested...
Massive ten-chapter post today brings an end to Volume I of the series. Thanks to everyone who came along for the ride. I am taking the summer off to focus on other ventures, but anticipate the start of the second volume in the fall. The title? (Drum roll, etc...) Poorthwart: The Weep.
See you then!
Just a reminder that the final ten chapters of the graphic novel Poorthwart will be posted on Sunday. Thanks to everyone who has been along for the ride. Officially titled Poorthwart: The Cataclysm, this will be the first novel in a three-volume series, with the second one set to kick off in the fall. If you haven't read it, please consider giving it a shot!
Upcoming Speaking Dates
Wed, Feb 17 - Queen's University Belfast, Northern Ireland
