Some really nice, unexpected things are bound to happen as part of a major exhibition. The comments and acknowledgements I am still getting from the newspaper review count among those, and comments from people who have visited the exhibition. Another good event arrived just this evening, in the form of an emailed photo. Ted Lieverman is a photographer who was taking pictures at Dilworth Plaza in the early Occupy Philadelphia days. He took a photograph of me while I was painting Brian’s portrait, and sent it along to me today:
it turns out that Ted has a whole series of great photos of Occupy Philadelphia – check out his blog at tmlphotojournal.com. He’s traveled a lot and I really relate to his series on El Salvador as well, based on the year I spent in Guatemala.
In addition to that photorecord, last week I took a couple of pictures of my portraits to show how they are displayed on the wall at the Friends Center. Turns out that I really couldn’t do anything better than simply show the process of hanging the backdrop with its attached portraits.
