I will be exhibiting at four venues in the USA in September. The Honolulu Museum of Art  “Courage and Strength” exhibition,  featuring 8 large scale Purple Hearts prints along with work by Suzanne Opton, Ashley Gilbertson, the late great Tim Hetherington and Peter Hapak opens September 6. Many thanks to curator Jay Jensen for dreaming up the show.

The John Michael Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan, Wisconsin,  presents “The Kids Are All Right,”  opening September 30 and curated by Alison Ferris.   I’m delighted to be in the company of my dear friend Andrea Modica and a slew of other amazing photographers.  Four Marine Wedding images will be on display.  The exhibition travels nationally through 2013.
