Please see paragraph from Merri Ansara Director at Common Ground Travel Agency.

Dear Joe and JoAnne,
First of all, Congratulations to us all for President Obama’s announcement today to begin normalizing relations with Cuba.  It has  been visits like yours that have helped change the view of ordinary U.S. Americans towards Cuba and our relations with Cuba.

Thanks to all our friends who went to Cuba with us under our People to People license for making this happen as well.

Our next trip to Cuba will be April 13 -20 2015. We hope you decide to join us.

Our trip to Cuba was an incredible experience. Traveling to Cuba gets better every time we go.  Great photography, fascinating people, a true education.  Did I mention our group was fabulous as well?

This time around, we visited  Havana, Cienfuegos and Trinidad.  We saw the city and the countryside. We met with artists and visited the University of Arts. We saw a ballet & learned how children with disabilities were taught dance and how it enriched their lives. We got to hear some wonderful opera, captured a beautiful rainbow, met with dancers and musicians while exchanging ideas and philosophies. We spent time with people who were leaders of community projects which helped seniors and build a better community, as well projects to help educate more people so they would live better lives.  It was a non-stop Learning Experience about Cuba the Country and it’s People.

Our next People to People to Cuba will be April 13 – 20, 2015        Other Upcoming Workshops 2015    (international workshops will be Israel, Iceland and Africa in 2015 as well as others)

Oh What a Difference a Lens Makes!

This is the second year I taught a Halloween Parade Workshop in New York City.  It was a blast! Tried to keep it simple and remain as flexible as possible.  Used the Canon 35mm EF f/1.4L USM Lens primarily.  All Photos © JoAnne Kalish All Rights Reserved.  http://www.dimaggio-kalishworkshops.com  http://www.dimaggio-kalish.com

“Through the Eyes of JoAnne Kalish: Photographer and Visual Communicator” Exhibit Oct.10 – Dec. 7 Columns Museum

My work is on exhibit at the Columns Museum in Milford, PA. October 10th through December 7, 2014.

The Show will also be during the time of the Black Bear Film Festival

It is the same Museum that has in their collection, the blood-stained Lincoln Flag from the Ford’s Theatre in Washington.

- On a history note, JoAnne was the only photographer at the Long Beach Grand Prix who captured the famous motor series at the start of the Long Beach Grand Prix of near fatal accident with Mario Andretti and James Hunt. Sports Illustrated ran the photo twice that year, the second time was for “The Year in Sports” issue.

The Tragedy of September 2001 will never be forgotten with her photograph of a Prayer Vigil, which has been recognized as one of the greatest tributes to the American Spirit.  Quote from Charlie Borst, Director of Photography at Corbis Sigma USA – “ I must say that from all the pictures I’ve edited of this tragedy, this quickly rises to the top.”

JoAnne’s iconic photograph of Artist Will Barnet, awarded the medal of Arts by President Obama in 2012, is now part of the Permanent Collection of Portraits, in The National Gallery of Art in Washington DC, as well as is being part of the photographic collection in the White House.

Other personal work is on display as well.  PLEASE COME DOWN AND SUPPORT THE ARTS.
