Hosted by Richard Kelly
Talking Photography N’at

We meet using Zoom Meeting https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84978587017
Photographers Talking Photography N’at
(“N’at” is a regional Western Pennsylvania expression mashing up the words “and” & “that” with the meaning “et cetera”)
The Talking Photography N’at concept is simple: we gather to discuss photography, look at photography from works in progress to finished projects. Collectively we want to learn about your intention, motivation, and process for making pictures.
Photographers are invited to show about 20 photographs in a slideshow format.
If you would like to make a presentation, send me an email email@example.com
To prepare your photographs for presentation, send me your image files as jpegs, export them, or resize them to be 1024 pixels on the long side at 72 PPI save at high quality around 10. Larger files do not render the quality better, but they do slow down the process.
Rename your images with your last name and the order number for the show. (KELLY_01.jpg).
Please place them in a zip compressed folder and send me the link to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please use Google Drive or We Transfer - I am currently not accepting DropBox Links.

Wow! since we last met up, virtually the winds have changed - it seems the CDC has torn the mask off our faces (if you are fully vaccinated) and are allowing us to smile and say hello again. I know I feel the freedom; over the past month or so, I have resumed my weekly cafe society meet-ups - a few with some members of this community. I spoke with a few doctor friends of mine who said this truly is a miracle of science. Not to get too ahead of ourselves, but it feels good to be out and about.
I don't have a formal agenda for our meetup - from conversations with people, it seems that the themes:
Personal Projects - > "Stuff I Like"
Printing our Work - > Hey, David Farmerie has a new printer!
Showing our Photographs > How is Polly's show coming along and Hey, wait, Kristi Jan hoover has an update on her project for the Pittsburgh Children's Museum.
Photo Books and Zines - > What are you reading or looking at?
Print Exchange- Jeff Williams, our friend from Colorado, threw out this Idea a few months back, and it seems that several people jumped on the idea (as well as supporting the USPS. Who doesn't like getting mail?). Alas, there was some confusion as to how it should work: I reached out to Jeff and asked him what I should say about it:
"Print exchange = you send a print I send a print. I find visual artists enjoy printed work of others on the wall or in their collection - as opposed to seeing it on IG once and then never again. I love collecting gallery show cards. "
I have a list of addresses - if you want to receive a card, send me your address, and I will keep that list private but available to those who want to participate. You are under no obligation to do so, but it is fun. If you want the addresses, send me an email with Print Exchange ADDRESS in the subject line.
What are you working on? Do you wish to share? Join us and invite a friend.

Andrew Southam: Healthcare professionals: Portraits & Conversations.
There’s so much information and misinformation, science, and terror out there now about the still-to-be-contained Coronavirus, I wanted to speak to someone on the front lines of exposure to Covid 19 every day.
"This begins a series of portraits and conversations with front-line health care professionals; doctors, nurses, and therapists, and people in supporting roles. These people have become central to this moment in ways none of them had foreseen. None of them describe themselves as a hero. But given the hours they’re working now, and the personal risk to themselves and their families they undertake to care for the public each day, I don’t think it would be an exaggeration. At first, I had concerns about asking for time with people who are doing life and death work right now. But what I’ve discovered is that this is a story that health care people want to be told, but are far too busy to tell. I’ll be posting their portraits and a short excerpt from my conversations with them here. And my entire interviews with them on my website. Stay safe." Andrew Southam
