If, like most of us, you think that you know all about the Dust Bowl/Depression Era photography of the Farm Security Administration, think again. While you may have seen some of the FSA’s greatest hits, like Dorothea Lange’s “Migrant Mother,” there is a rich vein of images still to be discovered.

My dog-eared copy of Josef Koudelka’s Gypsies sits in the bookcase next to Cartier-Bresson’s Decisive Moments and Robert Frank’s The Americans. Like those books, it was fundamental to my development as a photographer. From the moment I saw it I was mesmerized by its stunning black-and-white images. Published by Aperture Books in 1975, it contained page after page of Koudelka’s dark and brooding photographs of European gypsies; the Romani or Roma people.

American photographer Minor White (1908 – 1976) played several significant roles during the decades in the last century when photography established itself as a museum-worthy art form. In the history of photography he is, without question, an important figure, although there remains great debate as to the true measure of his stature and influence as a photographer.

You have invested in camera equipment. You have sharpened your photographic skills. You even have a gallery of your photos online. Now what? The next step for many photographers is a public exhibition of their work. It is a way to be seen, to promote and market yourself and your work, and maybe, if you are lucky, even a way to sell a print or two.

American photographic artist Janelle Lynch had the honor of being the first Artist-in-Residence at the Burchfield Penney Art Center located in Buffalo, New York. (The Art Center is only museum dedicated to the art of noted American painter Charles E. Burchfield and the artists of Western New York.) Captivated and ultimately drawn to the area by Burchfield’s work, Lynch also found creative inspiration for her verdant photos in Henry David Thoreau’s nature writings and philosophy, which suggests that the natural world is made up of spirits and is part of a far greater spirituality.
