As promised, a few shots from the Phat Fly Girls‘ performance in the Jazz Hams show earlier this month. The dancers put on a fantastic show, while also challenging the inaccurate stereotype that fat people are lazy, out of shape, and in poor health. These women are athletes and artists, performing lifts and complicated choreography with grace.
I just finished hanging a show of a selection of my California photos, which will be on display until March 31, 2012, at the Lakeview Branch of the Oakland Public Library. If you would like to view them, stop by during the library’s open hours during the next couple months.
I’ve learned a lot in the process of getting ready for this show, and may have more to talk about as I absorb it. In the meantime, I’ll share one of my favorite new images featured in the show. This is Stovepipe Wells dunes in Death Valley.
