Little Kids Rock is an amazing organization dedicated to “restoring and revitalizing music education in U.S. public schools.” LKR brings free music instruction and instruments to under-served schools in the U.S. Nationwide, it has served more than 235,000 students at over 1,600 schools in 25 cities. (Read more about how Little Kids Rock works here.) Honorary Board Members include Bonnie Raitt, Slash, Paul Simon, B.B. King, Ziggy Marley and others.

Again this year I helped document an LKR fundraising event at Facebook Headquarters (See the 2012 Little Kids Rock post here). This year’s event was dedicated to the memory of Josef Desimone, the Facebook head chef who tragically lost his life this fall. I remember him so clearly from the event last year. Both years have had very elaborate and delicious food made by the Facebook chefs.

It was so moving to see kids from these programs up on stage performing with big stars. I was RIVETED when James Hetfield the leader of the band Metallica, performed with them. It was jaw-dropping, and my jaw doesn’t drop so easily… I was taken by how dedicated he was to the organization, and to the kids. Chris Isaac was there as well, among others (see surfing pic–the woman in the photo with Chris can surf while doing a headstand (!)).

This year I will have the privilege of getting to know some of the kids. I want to create a photo essay that shows their stories, and powerful effect of the work this organization does.  I’ll post more on that when the time comes.

 

SOS–Somerville Open Studios


I have a great posse of photographer friends, and this year we decided to show at Somerville Open Studios. We had spaces in The Armory (see photos below), a quite active center for the arts in Somerville. I enjoyed talking photography with people all weekend, and I met some very interesting artists and photographers. We’ll definitely do it again!

 

Show at riki

I am really excited to be having a show of my wedding work at this amazing clothing store. I’m not a big shopper, but I don’t miss the chance to go to riki when I am in California. The textures and designs are unique in a modern and untrendy way that I like. The owner/designer, Ursula, designed most of the items herself in the past, and now has added other lines. The reception for the show is coupled with a trunk show with a designer from the Bay Area- Verrieres&Sako – specializing in couture and wedding dresses. Here are some of the images going up:
