The Corrective Lens

The Corrective Lens

I am honored that two of my images from Iran, including “The Lady in Pink” (seen below on the invitation) were selected by Jurors Ron Herman and Mamen Saura to be in the exhibit The Corrective Lens at Foothill College in Los Altos, California from January 23-March 20, 2020.   The photographs in this exhibit not only capture the memories of cultures and peoples around the world, but also serve as a catalyst for intercultural connection.  As an exhibitor, I am joined by other photographers whose superb work is also to be enjoyed.  Sadly I am unable to attend the opening on January 23rd as I will be in Côte D’Ivoire, West Africa, but I invite and hope that many of my local friends can attend the opening on January 23rd.

If you would like to attend the artist talk on Wednesday, March 11, I will be one of the speakers talking about Iran, a timely topic.

I want to thank  you all for your strong support and encouragement of my work.  It means a lot to me, and I appreciate it so very much.   Pam

    The photo of the lady in front of the mosque is one of my favorites. In fact, I have had a print of it on my wall for several years. Enjoy your trip to the Ivory Coast, Pam. And, can’t wait to hear about it when you return.

    The lady in pink is stunning, Pam. I will be visiting the exhibit and telling friends about it. Unfortunately, I will still be on my Panama Canal trip for the artist talks.

    Pam, your pictures are incredibly beautiful. And they remind me of similar places I visited in my younger years.

    I had passed this by on Flickr, not realizing that the draped figure was a living person. What else? I think now. I was/am impressed by the reproduction of the intricate detail , but the figure gives it meaning.

      David, Again, thank you. Yes, I felt very fortunate to get this image because this photographic icon in Shiraz, Iran was very busy with photographers when I was there. Yes, there is a woman under that paisley drape and I was ever so lucky to grab this shot quickly and even luckier that it worked. You never know. Iran is a place that very few Americans visit because they don’t feel safe. Granted I wouldn’t go there now, but in 2017 (just before Trump removed us from the Iran Nuclear deal) we were perfectly fine and felt very safe. What’s amazing is how much the Iranian people love Americans. It’s just our governments (I’m assuming you are an American). If you’ve ever met Persians here in the States, you will know what I mean. They are the kindest and warmest people I’ve met (along with the Irish.) Again, thank you for visiting my site. It’s more for my writing than photos. I finally got my own personalized website after publishing a blog called “Biker Chick Gone Crazy for many years. (I ride a bicycle)
