Carrie Mae Weems - Testimony of a Cleareyed Witness - NYTimes - with my own personal remembrance of Ms. Weems →

I had the distinct honor of assisting this amazing photographer a few times during my time in graduate school in California many years ago. Carrie Mae Weems taught me many things, but mostly I witnessed, and was influenced by, her drive and passion as an artist. Her 30 year retrospective has finally arrived at the Guggenheim Museum and here is a great piece in her work from the New York Times.

"The artist is nothing without the gift, but the gift is nothing without work."

— Émile Zola
