Photography notes

Jerome Berglund graduated summa cum laude from the cinema-television production program at the University of Southern California, and has spent much of his career working in television and photography. He has had photographs (not the one submitted here) published and awarded in local papers and recently staged an exhibition in the Twin Cities area which included a residency of several months at a local community center.

Charles Philip Brooks is a writer and painter, widely known for his evocative American Tonalist paintings and Pictorialist art photography. He divides his time between creative work in the south and the pacific northwest.

Jennifer Wortham has been shooting photographs for several years either when the spirit strikes or the scene appears. Recently, she was fortunate to study with landscape photographer Malcolm MacGregor in the Inner Hebrides, Scotland. Her aim during that workshop in Iona was to capture the iridescence, moods, and deep sense of spirituality of the landscape. The long spiritual of the Scottish island of Iona dates back to the 5th century and involves a saint, a nunnery, and the slaughter of monks on the Island’s white sands by the Vikings. These ruthless explorers carried their great ships over land to suddenly appear as if by magic on the Lochs. By the 11th century they had settled down to marry the islanders and farm the land. Today, Iona has grown into a place of peace, beauty and ancient spirituality.

Margo Moss, award winning photographer, is widely published in magazines and books and her photographs hang in many private collections. She is a world traveller, silver status member of Travelers Century Club and is an environmental activist and she is also a frequent hike leader on local trails in New York and New Jersey. Margo taught photography at The New School in NYC for 18 years and has organized several photography workshops for museums, libraries and environmental groups.

Leah Oates has had solo shows at venues such as Susan Eley Fine Art, The Arsenal Gallery in Central Park, The Brooklyn Public Library, The Center for Book Arts, Tomasulo Gallery, Real Art Ways, and at the Sol Mednick Gallery at the Philadelphia University of the Arts and national and international solo shows at Anchor Graphics, Artemisia Gallery and Woman Made Gallery in Chicago, Illinois and at Galerie Joella in Turku, Finland.  Her work has been in group shows in NYC and at the Schweinfurth Art Center, Brooklyn’s Prospect Park, Nurture Art Gallery, Metaphor Contemporary Art, Denise Bibro Fine Art, Yale University, The Pen and Brush and at The Center for Book Arts and nationally at Bob Rauschenberg Gallery in Florida, Unsettled Gallery in New Mexico, The Southeast Center for Photography in South Carolina and at Nave Gallery in Massachusetts.
