Is it commercial art or is it fine art? A question we hear often lately because of the convergence of art and technology. These three artists have all enjoyed successful careers in the publishing world as photographers and designers with both Sports Illustrated and Time Inc. That was then. What is now are three artists who utilize the same skill sets to create beautiful art. We hope you join us to see the art of Joe DiMaggio, JoAnne Kalish, and Dennis Wheeler. The exhibition opens July 29th with the artists’ reception July 30th from 5-7pm.”

The gallery can be found at 342 Main St., Lakeville, CT 06039 and the gallery’s webpage can be found at http://www.thewhitegalleryart.com/ .

Had a lovely wonderful Evening Last Night. We went to The Screening of Bill Shatner’s film The Captains on the Intrepid in Manhattan. Although Bill & Liz were working, we had a little time to spend with friends we hadn’t seen in a while. Great seeing them.

Beautiful evening sipping wine on the Intrepid in the harbor. Great backlight, took a few snaps 
before The Star arrived as the light was so pretty.

Never a Dull Moment

Our friend Larry came over the other day to give us a hand with setting up a new computer and wiring them and such.  In return he got a new portrait done of himself for his website. It was quite striking I must say and very dramatic – to see it go to Joe’s blog -http://joedimaggio-inthiscorner.blogspot.com/

I decided to make some home-made pizza for lunch and it was a pleasant afternoon. Afterward just to keep things interesting, Joe decided to have some fun and asked if I’d please photograph him using his laptop outside in a storm.  Very funny indeed but that’s Joe!

Snapshots, Pictures and Photographs

My life partner Joe DiMaggio has just had bilateral hip surgery at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan. It’s been a long time coming. You might say I’ve been a little preoccupied with a million other things.

It’s time to pick up that camera again and go back to work. As I walked the streets to and from the hospital I realized what a truly beautiful time of year it is and what I was not capturing out there with my camera. I heard my father’s voice in my head reminding me Spring was his favorite time of year. I brought my camera along as I usually do but really did not have much time to use it, as I did not have time to dally along the way. I found myself taking mostly record pictures with my IPhone to keep family and friends abreast of Joe’s progress. Taking photos on a phone is something I don’t do often but it certainly worked in this case and was kind of fun.

I always tell my students that in photography there are snapshots, pictures, and photographs. Snapshots and pictures are taken but photographs are made and I always strive to make photographs but there are certainly occasions for all and this was one of them.
