Join Steve on a journey of personal introspection and a project that created both powerful images and made a lasting impact on the lives of many. The Forgotten Generation came about because of one single 'eureka' moment that turned into a quest to create prtraits of senior citizens at St. Anns Home in Dover, NH. It resulted in a wonderful outpouring of thanks, coverage by newspapers and TV stations, an exhibit for the home and much more.
Steve entered 6 images from this project in PPA print competition, resulting in 3 merit images, 3 loan collection images and 2 98's in the regional judging. All images were taken with a camera, 1 lens and a window. See how this evolved, how the images were taken and how many photographers across the country joined Steve in documenting the elderly in their area. This is an uplifting program that will stay with you for many years. Steve will also be doing a 'live' shooting demonstration using window light.
As an added bonus, Steve will be having a drawing during the first 15 minutes for his "Families A-Z" DVD valued at $99 and also LustreColor will be donating a 1-year Pocket Album subscription plus e-commerce valued at $299.
