a couple other new online resources...


bleak beauty

Danny Lyon just posted a new site, When i was in new york, i worked with him on this project and am happy it is now online. It's a site of "social, political and photo-realism", currently featuring the work of Danny Lyon, Julian Bond, and Hugh Edwards (Curator of photography at the Art Institute of Chicago 1959-1970). There are links to Danny Lyon books and films, and be sure to look at the Hugh Edwards images, they are amazing.


For those of you writing in asking about photography classes, without hesitation I recommend Frank Espada as a resource. He offers advanced instruction, one-on-one or in small group workshops. Learn more about what's available at
