{An Exhibition of Place and People } MEMORY BANK II

 

For me, it is about slowing down and listening. Listening to the stories that soon will be only relayed through memories. In our busy lives sometimes we easily forget. We all know that realization… a moment lost, a conversation that should have taken place, a story that needs to be told. It is because of this realization that I am so proud to be apart of this upcoming Exhibit. But first…a little info:

Memory Bank II is Preservation Napa Valley’s 2012 community preservation project: an annual, intensive endeavor to celebrate and build awareness for the cultural heritage of Napa County. Partnering with the Napa Valley Museum, subjects have been gathered from eight county areas, from American Canyon to Calistoga. Six professional photographers and one filmmaker are capturing the people and places during an era of great transition in Napa’s history.

August 11- September 23rd 2012

Opening night is tomorrow! August 11th 5:30-7:30 Napa Valley Museum, 55 President’s Circle, Yountvillle, CA

I was fortunate enough to work with three subjects, whose stories and lives touched me. I so enjoyed walking with them and hearing their stories all while being given the immense task of telling just a bit of their story on film. It was an honor and I’m excited with the result.

Here are just a few of the images. I invite you to come to The Napa Valley Museum ( http://www.napavalleymusem.org) to enjoy the rich lives of these history makers in our valley’s heritage.
