A friend asked me, when I mentioned working on the April issue, “how can you think about photography with all this going on?” Actually, that is the entire point. We all need something to think about besides covid-19. As I’ve mentioned in a past column, when we engage with art, our brains stop their story-telling chatter, and we can rest, however briefly, in a pure experience of awareness of an artistic work. It’s not just pleasurable. It is good for mental and physical health.
To that end, we are presenting two provocative portfolios: Gary Lightner’s insightful street photography, and Shirley Braley’s otherworldly composites.
