27 December 2011

It has been a busy month for me; lots of travel and attending to the regular work that I do outside of the suitcases project.  I have just posted another update on my wordpress site. (click for the link)  The project is still moving along nicely.  I will be back in Albany shooting next week and will post more photos soon.  I am actively at work on a book proprosal, and have had an interesting nibble from a museum about a substantial exhibit of the photographs.  /  I haven't sent out the kickstarter survey yet to gather all the backers addresses so that I can mail out the reward photographs, but I will do that after the new year.  Thank you all for your encouragement and all the best for 2012.  Jon

      Dear Jon,
      I appreciate your posts and the continuing suitcases. Their stories are so compelling.
      I would be happy to introduce you to the Freud Museum in London who might be interested
      In exhibiting the series. Let me know when you are ready.
      All the best,
      Gillian Gordon
