contributing

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.
