BPL Lions

I was back working in Boston yesterday and had a break between locations to go back to the amazing Boston Public Library.  These lions are guarding the stairway to the reading room.  Just after taking this photograph I noticed these 2 women on the far stairs.

They were happy to be photographed.  I’m not really sure what was going on here, but they reminded me of the daffodils that all of us in New England are so desperate to see.

Doing some work in Boston today.  Came in here to quickly edit some photos. Amazingly enough, this is my first time in the Boston Public Library.  What a room.  Love the green lamps.

Willard Suitcases

Julianne Wick Davis has been working on a song cycle based on my photographs of the suitcases for the past several years.  Here is a link to a previous post.  She is nearing completion of the process and is starting to move to the next stage.

I am very excited to announce that she has put together a preview of the work that will take place at Joe’s Pub in New York City on the 3rd of May.  Here is a link to where tickets can be purchased.  If you are in the New York area and can make it to the show, it should be amazing.  I’ll be there and I am hoping that Peggy Ross can make it as well.  We are so excited about this.  The space is not huge, so I would encourage you all to get your tickets as soon as possible.  Hope to see you there.

The following Thursday (the 10th), I’ll be back on Roosevelt Island for another talk at the RI Historical society.  More on that soon.  That one is free and open to the public.
