Lots of artist's talks during summer 2018! I spent two days as a visiting artist and did a lecture at Parson's MFA Photography in June. In July I spoke about my book New York Waterways at Alice Austen House. Underwater New York and Works on Water invited me to talk about New York Waterways as well, as part of their September celebration of their residency program on Governor's Island.
Hofstra University awarded me a Faculty Research and Development Grant to faciliate further work on Down For the Day.
