  • In The Defense Of The Photographer

    I was racking my brain to even start this editorial. I have something to say, but I didn’t want it to be a hosh posh of sour grapes. It’s more out of concern for a pattern I’m seeing as of late – perhaps many other photographers are as well. There’s been this unfortunate trend that…

  • The Funeral Portrait: More Than Music

    It is impossible to describe the music of The Funeral Portrait without including their live performance. Lee Jennings (vocals), Juergie Landstrom (guitar/vocals), Chris King (bass), and Stephan Danzey (drums) have as much visual impact as they do audio.
