Kernan gave an engaging lecture. Turns out he has made some photographs at the Kampala Boxing Club. When showing that body of work, he mentioned that a friend had told him about it. Well, I knew immediately that friend had to be Thatcher Cook, my 2006 Uganda workshop teacher. Thatcher was the one who told several of us students about the boxing club and encouraged us to shoot there, thinking it would be a good way to move out of our comfort zone. (I LOVED it and so did my friend Brian, who made some incredibly memorable pictures in that wonderfully gritty place.) After the talk, I asked Mr. Kernan who had recommended he shoot at the boxing club, and, of course, it was Thatch. It's a small photo world!
The show looked great. A lot of good work always in the PhotoSpiva exhibition. I was proud to be part of it once again. Taking the top prize was an incredible honor.
