Thank You Larissa!

I wanted to write a short biography of Larissa and thank her for blogging about my work, but it seems that the biography on her website would beat out anything I could say about her.

"Larissa Leclair is an independent photography writer and curator. Her writings on photography have been published in the photo-eye Booklist and ArtVoices. She curated the exhibition Today’s Past: Images of Africa from 1952 to 1960 of photographs by David E. Apter at Yale University and re-appropriated the Zagourski postcard collection. She has photographed for the Chicago Field Museum and the U.S. State Department and has worked for Arena Editions, Outside Magazine, and the Santa Fe Workshops. She is on the Photo Book Committee for FotoWeek DC, a reviewer for Critical Mass, and assisted Philip Brookman with the exhibition Helios: Eadweard Muybridge in a Time of Change on view at the Corcoran Gallery of Art from April 10-July 18, 2010. Larissa is also a collector of photography and photography books. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography and a Bachelor of Arts in Cultural Anthropology from Washington University in St. Louis and a Masters from Yale University."

Larissa will also be blogging about the participants of One Hour Photo, a show at the AU Katzen Arts Center in DC. You can visit her website here, and read her blog here.
