Capturing definitive moments is something every photographer strives to achieve. I am particularly moved by the work of Craig Semetko whose work is superb at doing just that thing. As the Head of an arts school, I find myself looking for moments that capture the artist engaged in something other than their actual artwork. In this photo taken in Miami I can imagine the painter's face by reading the reaction of the woman with whom he is speaking with.
Little Earthquake is a nickname I have for my step-daughter who loves the ocean and the beach.
At a recent event at the Head's House at Walnut Hill, Ben Khalil a Senior Voice major came to perform. His baritone voice has a deep and haunting quality and his a great and talented young man. It was a real privilege to photograph him performing.
Megan is a senior at Walnut Hill who came to us this year from the pacific northwest. She is an extremely talented and dedicated young artist and musician who will be studying at Juilliard next year. We often have the privelage of hosting students at the Head's House for performances and special events. This particular evening we were hosting Robin Young, host of Here and Now from WBUR, our local NPR station in Boston. What I love about this moment is the intention that Megan has in watching a classmate perform before her.
