Objectifying Women

Occasionally I get accused of objectifying women in my photographs. Far from it, I am only guilty of showing these women as powerful in their beauty and sexuality; with or without clothes. To quote famed photographer Helmut Newton… “My women are always victorious.”

Tuskegee Airman Harry Stewart

Opportunities to be present with such great people are always not to be missed. At the Palm Springs Air Museum yesterday to photograph and video Tuskegee Airman Lt. Col. Harry Stewart. By the way, he is 95 years old. Here is a very fun minute…

How do you solve one of the unforeseen problems of enduring a 6 1/2 hour mission in a fighter aircraft? You might never have thought of this! Explained by Tuskegee Airman Lt. Col. Harry Stewart.

Yesterday at the Palm Springs Air Museum for the West Coast World premier of the Colonel’s book “Soaring to Glory: A Tuskegee Airman’s Firsthand Account of WWII”, along with author Philip Handleman.

The Colonel flew forty-three combat missions as a Tuskegee Airman in World War II. For his flying prowess with the famed 332nd Fighter Group, known as the Red Tails, he was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross.

It was a standing room only event and his book was a sell out!

The Print Is The Photograph

I have always loved the printed photograph. Especially large fine art prints as you would see in a museum. At the Palm Springs Photo Festival just a few weeks ago, there was a display of prints that yet again caught my attention. Reminding me of some of what I love of photography. Printed by Epson, they were especially beautiful so I noted the paper types and now have added them to my inventory for printing of my works. From Epson, Legacy Etching and Legacy Baryta, museum quality archival. Not all papers are the same. It makes huge difference.
