Joe Ziolkowski made me do it


Today Joe Ziolkowski made me do this, or inspired me to start posting my daily pics. Joe came in to my high school photo class that I teach, and blew us all away with his presentation. He talked about everything from his days as a high paid fashion photographer to the photos he took with his father as he cared for him in the late stages of Parkinson's disease. Joe does extensive pinhole photography and has been to Okinawa five times to photograph the exotic coastline. Point is, we were moved and recharged artistically. Joe is in the above picture showing students his 30 foot accordian fold book chronicling the last years he spent with his ailing father. It was hard not to get choked up, and we all felt something, and that's a hard thing to do now a days.
