This is the first of what will likely be occasional email updates on my photographic projects and activities. The past year has been a busy, but productive, one with the publication of my book, "Places of Power: The Aesthetics of Technology," along with exhibitions, workshops, and lectures. Much of the year has been spent "locked" in the darkroom completing overdue printing projects. I wanted to take this opportunity to let you know what's new with me and my photography

In addition, Anne and I will be available to answer photographic questions, as well as sign books at the Jobo Fototechnic booth at Photo Plus. We will be in the their booth on Friday afternoon following my seminar, and all day Saturday. We look forward to having the chance to visit with some of our photographic friends from the New York City vicinity.




JOHN SEXTON WEB SITE UPDATE


For those who have asked, we are indeed working on the johnsexton.com web site. In fact, some minor enhancements have been made there, and the "real" site should be up and running sometime (I used to say soon). Cliff Rusch, who has done a fantastic job designing my calendars for the last three years, as well as "Places of Power," is working on the project, and doing a handsome job. When the "real" site is live we hope you will find it to be a site that contains worthwhile photographic information, along with a selection of images, and schedules, etc. Those on this email list will be the first to know when the new site is live and online at:

http://johnsexton.com

In the meantime, I thought you might like to see the web site that Kodak and Photo District News recently produced. I am quite pleased with the way it turned out. They did a handsome job.

SOME THOUGHTS ON PHOTOGRAPHY


Memorable comments by noted photographers:

"Dodging and burning are steps to take care of mistakes god made in establishing tonal relationships!”
- Ansel Adams

"You will never make a photograph that everyone likes. So, make sure you like every one of your photographs."
- Oliver Gagliani



Well, I'll sign off for now. I hope you found at least some of this email of interest. Further updates will be sent when content, and time, allow.

Photographically yours,

John
