“Blogging and The Photography Community”

May 15, 2009
11:00 am to 12:00 pm

Joined by Jorg Colberg, this panel will include Cara Philips, Laurel Ptak, Andrew Hetherington and Brian Ulrich.

Note from Frank Evers – This panel promises an open-ended discussion on the current state of the blogging and the photography community, or what I lamely call the “photosphere”.  If you think that you have any clue as to what is actually going on in photography today, then you will be hogging a seat from the early morn.

Audience participation is expected, so bring your brain.

Panel participants are:

Jorg Colberg –

Cara Philips –

Laurel Ptak –

Andrew Hetherington –

Brian Ulrich –

So all you gallery owners who think work is interesting purely because of it’s fresh use of  “technology” this ones for you! Meet Cooper,  he applying for the next round of the Guggenheim’s.



The answer is finally found to how your cat really sees you.
