Photography Atelier Instructor and Photographer Meg Birnbaum shared, “The Photography Atelier has such a long and rich history, I’m honored to be leading this workshop for emerging photographers with Amy Rindskopf assisting. The talent among the 12 members of this group show is varied and inspiring -- from our relationship with nature to memory, portraits, poetry and architecture -- the show is very satisfying feast for the eyes and soul.”
