As a personal aside and as many of you know, Maria DiElsi Connolly is the Assistant Director for Vintage Works and helps me out on occasion with this newsletter and I Photo Central. She is also a very fine photographer.
Two of her portrait photographs (Lily from the Prague Garden Series and AJ's Garage) were recently chosen for the Center for Photographic Image's Photoimage 03, which opens November 7 (today) at the Nexus Foundation for Today's Art, 137 North Second St., Philadelphia, PA.
Over 650 entries were submitted and Maria's two images were among only 64 selected. Her portrait of Lily was recently featured in the centerspread of Philadelphia's City Paper to promote the event. The exhibit will continue through the month of November.
My congratulations to Maria.
