The Review Santa Fe Open Viewing tonight in Santa Fe made me suddenly feel like a kid in a candy store. 100 very talented photographers and several hundred lovers of the medium all together - sharing the medium in the Hilton ballroom. Some phenomenal work - almost more than I could absorb in a short two hour visit.
Kudos to Laura Pressley and to Jessica Parker (and their team) for bringing together another showcase of very talented photographers. I suggest a visit to the Center's website where you can find links to the 2010 list of photographers - The Center.
"I have perceiv'd that to be with those I like is enough,
To stop in company with the rest at evening is enough,
To be surrounded by beautiful, curious, breathing, laughing flesh is enough,
To pass among them or touch any one, or rest my arm ever so lightly
round his or her neck for a moment, what is this then?
I do not ask any more delight, I swim in it as in a sea."
- Walt Whitman
