Today we’re shouting out to Vote Save America, AND the NY Times podcast from last weekend, The Last "Year of the Woman".
Our first guest is Judy Linn, photographer and Vassar professor, best known for her book Patti Smith 1969-1976 : Photographs by Judy Linn. Judy talks about her relationship to photography which started out quite rocky and quickly becomes the thing that she needs to try and figure out leading her to a lifelong relationship with the art form, and a very successful career. Judy has had portfolios published in Artforum and BOMB magazine, and her photographs are included in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Detroit Art Institute, the Dallas Museum of Art, and the Getty Collection, among others. She has received an award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters and grants from the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation, Anonymous Was A Woman, and the Peter S. Reed Foundation. Judy shares so honestly about her life and her unique perspectives including her belief that all photographs lie. She’s working on another book of photography taken in the early 70’s from her time in Detroit working for a local paper. Can’t wait for this…hint, bouffant hair and pointy collars.
Our second guest is Jessica Vecchione, videographer and documentarian. Her company is Vecc Videography, she’s been an accomplished videographer in the Hudson Valley for over 20 years. She recently released SMACKED, her new documentary film about the opiate crisis. This 69 minute film was her way of truly uncovering all that is happening with the police, the health care system, and those who struggle with the addiction. Jessica shares how she really broke through in film by making a documentary about the town of Fleischmans. She works with many nonprofits in the Hudson Valley and across New York State. Jessica’s advice to aspiring videographers/filmmakers, just do it, follow your passion, and be kind along the way
Self care! Be KIND!!! Move from the heart space. Don’t fall into the patriarchal trap of operating from the analytical mind.
