Sunny Weather

Since it is such a nice day, today I will bring my preparatory work for With Hands out of doors, into downtown Troy. I plan on working near the library, but this is subject to change. My hope is that this will inspire conversation, and perhaps plant some seeds for collaboration and participation. I will have my camera with me. I would like to meet and photograph more local makers and do-ers. It is important to me to authentically represent the family of skilled makers and do-ers within the community. If you are in Troy, especially if you make or do something that others pay someone else (or a company) to make or do, then please come talk to me!

I can not do it without you.

Residents of Albany, Schenectady, and Troy!

Economy Got You Down?
Relax! You can still provide for yourself, creating, fixing, doing with your own two hands, right? Or perhaps someone you know has taught, or can teach you such a valuable skill.

This is a call for photographs of models, resulting pictures to be used in an installation celebrating and encouraging handiwork in the community.

What I'm Looking For:

1. A photo of someone who has taught you a skill using one's hands (or of someone who possesses such a skill that you admire)
2. A photo of that person's hands with his or her handiwork.

Along with the photographs or offers to allow me to take pictures, I also welcome stories along the theme.

If you would like anything returned (physical mail) please include SASE.
