Preston Gannaway is an award winning photojournalist, who works for the Concord Monitor, in New Hampshire. I came across her work, after reading a recent post on one of my favourite sites – Prestons work is beautiful, challenging, insightful and inspiring. She tells stories with her images, that hold you and make you want to see more.

A lot of her images have a peek-a-boo quality without the feeling of being voyeuristic. Many of her images use off centre compositions which are framed in unusual ways by the objects and environments in which they are shot. Her Photo-essay “Remember Me” was the first to draw my attention because of the Pulitzer Prize it won, however the rest are equally of note. Visit her personal site at it’ll be well worth your time.

Dave Stevens 1955 - 2008
I was shocked to find out today that Dave Stevens passed away at the age of 52 on March 11th 2008, from complications due to leukemia. The creator of the Rocketeer and popular cover artist during much of the 80’s and 90’s, will be missed, greatly. Dave Stevens is survived by his mother, Carolyn; his sisters, Jennie and Melody; and his brother, Dan. There is a memorial page at the Dave Stevens official website.

Creative Imaging News – Artsites New Home

About a year ago I launched Creative Imaging News and in that year I’ve been busy working on reviews, news and info dealing with creative imaging, photography and art tools and products. Artsites was constantly on my mind … I wanted to continue with this site as there are just so many interesting and cool places out there to get inspiration … so about a week ago I rolled artsites into CIN. Now to begin updating the blog, which I’ll be doing about twice a week.
