Joan Lederer: Africa to Cleveland Seeking Safety in our Community
Because I am a photographer and an activist, I fell into a photographic project that I believe needs to be shared.
For the past 10 months I have been photographing a family of four Congolese who are seeking asylum in the United States. The family has been remarkably generous in allowing me into their lives. The photos show emotions and relationships that are generalizable to all of us. And yet…..what this family is going through and has gone through is something none of us should ever have to experience.

Jon Passow: The West…Pinhole Color Landscapes
The Art: These 5 large format photographs were taken throughout America's Wild West. Sized at 61.5" wide by 41.75" tall, they are printed using lightjet technology. Thematically, these pieces are all captured with 35mm redscale film through the use of various cameras (Pentax P3, homemade pinhole, and a Zero Image 135B wooden pinhole camera).
