LIFE. My favorite book was, The Family of Man, having no idea that the incredible
Edward Steichen was the photographer. For me the images were an escape from reality,

Dorothea Lange, and Henri Cartier Bresson. Growing up in the San Fernando Valley

Pickles, Camarillo, CA
"Confessions of a Stay At Home Mom #6"
Pickles is a fine art and commercial photographer in Southern California. After
studying art at Wellesley College she became a photographer, art director and
commercial producer in Los Angeles. Completing her MFA studies in photography
in 2010 at Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara, Pickles continues to develop her
photographic career. In this body of work as an American woman, wife, and mother
of three boys, Pickles worked to convey her personal reality within the family.
This process constantly brought her back to the dining room table. Yet, in all
the images the artist was absent. Ultimately she stepped in front of the camera,
and through pose and gesture found a language to communicate her emotional experiences
as an American woman, wife, and mother. This is excerpt from a body of 13 images.

"Lucha del Domingo"
Biggerstaff, Los Angeles, CA
a native to Los Angeles, CA, has been a freelance photographer for over 5 years
She has studied photography at Art Center College of Design, Pasadena as well
as The Julia Dean Photo Workshops. Callie began shooting professionally after
discovering a great passion for imagery during her work as a photo editor in print
advertising and graphic design. Callie's earlier images had focused on the documentary
of Americana, and its shifts and changes. Her images offer a blunt reality while
still allowing the intensity, mystery, and beauty that can be seen in each exploration
and journey, capturing a moment and evoking emotion. Her recent focus has exploded
in the way of live music and the culture surrounding the underground resurgence
of Downtown Los Angeles. She is aiming to capture the raw pleasure and passions
that Angelenos are rediscovering in these ongoing times of economic and political

Goldberg, West Chester, PA
"To see the world through the eyes
of women is powerful. The perspective, affect and empathy is often present
in their photographs. Many women pioneered the way for women to photograph
the world around them. Role models were created and our current generation
has expanded to acceptance and venues for women in the field of photography.
As a professional photographer with an undergrad in photography and a
in the creative arts, I am delighted to be a member of WIPI and participate
in different venues for photography. The world keeps changing and the
photography industry evolves to meet our needs and views of the world. The changes
I have seen over a 30 year period of my career continues to make me eye sharp
and images that document the world."

impressions. After many years of photographing others, she has turned the camera

some of the unspoken internal experiences that lie at a very deep level of human
existence. Diane still photographs exclusively with film.

Freyer, Los Angeles, CA
In my work as a photographer, which is informed
by my background as a painter and filmmaker, I explore the mystery and beauty
of familiar subjects as both visual objects and emotional symbols. Using unexpected
angles and undefined spaces, I hope to evoke a response in the viewer that includes
observation, pleasure and memory.

McLemore, Charlevoix, MI
"Morning Glory Canna"
Julia McLemore’s work is an exploration
of life, loss and transformation; with an added “phoenix” outcome
of beauty or humor…often a sense of motion or dance. She observes and studies
the smallest details of flowers and plants. Each becomes an opportunity for a
new way of seeing, as the light shines through via a scanner. The viewer sees
the flower or leaf’s interior space. The final exhibition prints are often
oversize and voluptuous, always colorful and magnified many times the size of
the original. She is a recent transplant from Ohio to Charlevoix, Michigan, above
the 45th parallel, where she is just beginning to discover the beautiful imaging
opportunities northern Michigan has to offer. McLemore holds bachelor degrees
in English Literature and Fine Arts and a master’s degree of fine arts in
art photography. She is owner/artist for Green Ink Gallery.

completed the artist proofs of her new book, Gray...A Lyrical Tale for Our Time,
she looks forward to sharing her work with the world through its publication.

L. Shulman, New York, NY
"You Pick the Place and I'll Choose the Time"
take photographs because I love to hold on to memories. My father was an
amateur photographer and one of my first memories was watching him take a picture
of my sister in front of a picture window in my first childhood home. I
was only a little girl but I can remember how magical the light looked, the way
the carpet felt under my bare feet and how the sun felt on my face. I try
to capture those feelings in every photograph I take and to create pictures that
ask that we look deeper than the surface, that hold ambiguities and conflicts
and that expose secrets. I look for moments that are at once familiar, yet
unexpected. There is no methodical approach in the selection of my subjects
- my choices come from an intuitive place and are fueled by my curiosity and need
to record and explore moments that may seem random but are also meaningful. You
can see my work at www.monicalshulman.com
