I gave my talk this afternoon at the Nelson-Atkins Museum. Assistant Curator of Photography Jane Aspinwall gave me the nicest introduction I have EVER received. She and Associate Curator April Watson made me feel like royalty, as did Natalie Boten, Photography Department Coordinator. There was a book signing after my presentation; the bookstore manager and buyer Raymond and John (respectively) were unbelievably helpful and so sweet. Kevin, the tech guy was awesome, too. It was a sold-out crowd in beautiful Lens 2, an intimate space in the new Bloch Building. I saw people I hadn't seen in years. I also saw many good friends and faithful supporters. It was truly an amazing afternoon, and as I said to those who were there, a pretty big deal for me. Thanks to all who made it such a memorable and special day for me.
Among the boatload of images I showed were several of the new pictures I made last month in Uganda.
