i'm really not a promoter of my own work.
here and on my photography site at pbase.com/magpiejst
is pretty much where it lives.

when someone finds it and appreciates it
i'm delighted. when the opportunity to share it
for a good cause presents itself so much the better.

this was the case in april when i was contacted by
linda ligon, founder and creative director of interweave press,
about the possibility of using some of my guatemala photographs in a book about guatemalan weaving that was being produced to benefit friendship bridge, a non profit ngo investing in microeneterprises to help the women and children of guatemala.

the book, Guatemalan Woven Wealth has just been published
and i couldn't be more delighted. it's a book i would
buy even if i didn't have photographs in it.

it's available through the friendship bridge site and at
interweave press with profits going
via friendship bridge to the women of guatemala.


  1. Oh, bravo for you!!!!! What a fantastic cause -- and showcase for your extraordinary work. Interweave makes beautiful books, and I will most certainly purchase a copy!
