David Binder's acclaimed documentary film “Calling My Children”


     David Binder’s acclaimed documentary film “Calling My Children” is being broadcast on PBS begining July 7, 2015 at 9:30pm on WORLD. Additonal broadcasts July 8 at 11:30am ET. July 11 at 11:30pm ET, July 12 at 11:30am ET, July 15 at 5:30am, and 11:30am ET.
     World Channel has included the film on their programming schedule. Please check your local listings.
     “Calling My Children" is an intimate portrayal of the effects of love and loss on one family's struggle for unity.  Gail Farrow was a 27-year-old woman, the mother of four sons, who was living with and who died of AIDS in 1989. David Binder began this project in 1988 when, as a photojournalist, he first started photographing Gail, with whom he spent a year and half every day documenting her last year of life and her family’s adjustment to their lives without her. Gail was survived by her husband Ronald and their sons Ronald Jr, Frank, Kennie and Bennie. David has continued documenting the family over the past 25 years.  In “Calling My Children,” the most recent update, we see that twenty years after her death, Gail’s hopes for her family collide with the reality of their lives,  This is a rare view of the bonds of family love that are both torn apart and endure through illness, loss and healing.
     “Calling My Children” is an intimate story that captures larger truths about stereotypes, family, and loss. The documentary is sponsored in part by the Magic Johnson Foundation, which focuses on providing vital resources for undeserved communities.
     “Calling My Children” received a First Prize at its premier at the 2009 Athens International Film and Video Festival. The filmed has screened at 18 film festivals domestically and internationally, winning 12 awards including 7 first prizes and the prestigious CINE Golden Eagle Award.
     In 2012, “Calling My Children” was honored by being the only film screened at The United States Capitol in Washington DC in coordination with the XIX International AIDS Conference.
     Gail Farrow’s story has profoundly resonated with diverse audiences through its presentation in magazines, exhibitions and this documentary film. Among the many readers that responded to the first publication of Gail’s story in 1990 (In Health Magazine), was a most extraordinary response from a man
in Bowling Green, Kentucky. This man, of working class means, contacted the magazine to let the family know of his interest in paying for private school for all four of Gail’s children. (The man supported eight years of schooling until his financial circumstances became untenable.)
     With insight and honesty, David’s film and photographs explore the pieces Gail left – photographs, letters, guidance and memories. “Calling My Children” is a testament of a family's life and a mother’s love.

Award-WinningPhotographer Launches Crowd-Funding Campaign to Create Exhibition


Vergennes,VT - Vermont-based photographer Brett Simison has launched a campaign via the crowd-funding website Kickstarter to create his upcoming photographic exhibition "The Pane in Empty Rooms", a portfolio of images made in and around poet Robert Frost's summer cabin in Ripton, Vermont.


"Not only is a good way to raise money to get your project off the ground, it's another avenue to promote your work and have it seen by more people," said Simison of the popular money-raising website. Typical projects on Kickstarter run for 30 days, and a project must meet its funding goal or else it fails and all pledges are cancelled. Projects offer tiered rewards to backers as a way of thanking them for their support.


Simison's goal is to create large fine art photographic prints from the portfolio for exhibitionsbeginning in 2014. "I shot 'Pane' entirely with film on large and medium format cameras. The image detail and tonality of real black and white film is stunning, and I wanted to make sure the viewer can see itall. Printing big photographs -- in the neighborhood of 24"x30" to 30"x40" -- was the obvious choice, " he said.


The project has until October 20 to raise its $6,000 goal, and if it succeeds that money will go towards the purchase of equipment and materials to print and mount theexhibition of 20 black and white photographs. Rewards to backers, which include a range of signed fine art archival photographs, are scheduled to ship in December 2013. The first exhibition for "The Pane in Empty Rooms" will open at the Vermont Center for Photography in Brattleboro, Vermont inJanuary 2014.

Young Photographers Alliance Announces Second Nationwide Mentoring Program


Pictured in photograph created by Daniella Rascon, (left to right): Margot Cheel, Lynne Damianos, Baoling Huang, Alex Abdalian and Sherry Saunders during their initial meeting in Quincy.

NEW YORK, NY—June 21, 2011—Young Photographer’s Alliance (YPA), a 501(c)3 educational foundation dedicated to developing the talent of young photographers, has announced its second international mentoring opportunity for students and recent graduates of college-level photography programs. This year’s theme, “Everything is Energy,” focuses on the powerful forces that shape our world, our politics, our environment, our lives and ourselves.


We’re thrilled to offer this tremendous opportunity to a new group of aspiring image makers,” commented Jerry Tavin, YPA Co-founder and president. The goal of this project is for young photographers to look beyond the obvious and explore the theme metaphorically in a way that sheds new light on the human condition.”


Developed with the support of a grant from the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP)—the leading trade association for commercial photographers—the YPA mentor program pairs emerging photographers with a leading photographer. Each student is encouraged to push boundaries and shed light on the subject in new and innovative ways within the context of their photographic specialty. The deliverables will be not only a collection of thought-provoking images, but also a written essay from each mentee that offers insight and inspiration to viewers. In addition to helping these protégées fine-tune their artistic talent and build their portfolios, the program offers them an unparalleled opportunity to develop business skills and explore markets for their work.


More than 50 students will be participating this year. The North American teams include students from colleges across the country mentored by 17 renowned photographers, including Lynne Damianos of Framingham and Margot Cheel of Cohasset. Their mentees are Daniella Rascon of New England School of Photography, Baoling Huang from Boston University Center for Digital Imaging Arts, Alex Abdalian from Syracuse University and Sherry Saunders from Savannah College of Art and Design. In addition, students in China, Thailand, and the UK will partner with celebrated artists.


In the weeks ahead, YPA will be seeking volunteers to assist with the 2011 YPA Awards Ceremony and Benefit, which will take place on Wednesday October 19. To volunteer or for more information, please contact Deborah Free at (585) 768-7880 or

Letter from ASMPNE President Scott Indermaur




I wanted to virtually introduce myself as ASMP New England’s new President. It is wonderful to step into this role with such an active and successful chapter all ready in place. This season has been full of a variety of programs and I’m excited about what we have accomplished and what is being developed for next season.


This season will wrap up with Two Shots of Photoshop in June, and Bill Bachmann: Stock Is Not Dead! in July. We added an extra program this season due to such an active chapter. In addition, we have added a small roundtable (limited attendance) with AIGA (the professional association for design) in June and a social gathering with the creative community in Portsmouth, NH in August. And yet another gathering in Boston, most likely in September.


We’ll start next season with a 2-day event with Brian Storm in September. AND if you are into multimedia, this will be super cool. I am excited for us to have these opportunities and to offer a wide range of topics. It’s an exciting time to be a photographer!


The current chapter board is the largest I have been involved with and they are awesome. We cover a large geographical area with board members traveling as many as 8 hours roundtrip for our board meetings. Please keep feeding your ideas, feedback and insights to the board. We design our programs and make changes to the chapter based upon your suggestions.


I am all about community and feel it is always better when we are more connected as photographers and friends. From my experience, the film lab used to be the watering hole for conversations and connections many years ago. In this digital age, ASMP programs have become one of those watering holes... and the more places to connect, the better. We now have 8 breakfast clubs in New England and those clubs have even morphed to accommodate their needs, for example one club now holds pot luck dinners and themed meetings.


As the president I strive for more connected members in our photography community. This includes members, non-members and our sponsors. I always enjoy conversation with other creative people. On the board we are also creating more streamlined processes to lessen our workload and to add some fun while having our monthly board meeting.


I look forward to seeing you at our programs As always, please contact myself, or anyone on the board, about anything. We enjoying hearing from you and answering your questions. You may find the board listing here: ASMP New England Board Members.


Your feedback is very important, and this survey will only take a few minutes to complete. Your input helps us plan next season and your time is greatly appreciated.

Cheers to another insightful and connected year,
