Program Manager/Curator

I brought a few books with me on my last trip back from Minnesota. Having discovered early in my time here that for some inexplicable reason the PRC's otherwise impressively thorough Siskind Library was missing some books I've contributed to, and having realized that I had extra copies sitting around my house in St. Paul, I felt compelled to contribute a few pieces of my publishing history to the collection here. I trust no one will consider me overly self-serving in this.

This spotlight previews coming attractions. The last portfolio review I had during my June sessions on Wednesday the 23rd was with Yael Ben-Zion. Yael came up from New York City to show me her work about Israel. Although she was born in Minneapolis (will I always find Minnesota connections?) in 1973, she left my home turf after three months and grew up in Israel with dual citizenship.

She returned to the United States to attend Yale Law School, and earned degrees in 2001 (LL.M.) and 2004 (J.S.D.). While in New Haven, she met photographer and assistant professor of photography David Hilliard,
