Raising a special-needs child is frustrating, chaotic, rewarding–and very, very expensive. Jeff Howe shares his family’s challenges caring for their severely autistic son.
‘Someone I Know’ is the latest project curated by Stuart Pilkington. He asked a variety of established and emerging photographers from across the globe to take a portrait of someone they know, no matter how loosely. The collection of over 140 portraits are now live on the project’s website, including my submission, a portrait of my nephew Kyle.
Happy Birthday Mom….

This fall, I am very excited to teach my sixth Visual Diaries workshop at the Creative Center, a non-profit organization that brings free art programming to people with cancer and other chronic illnesses. I was inspired to teach this class because of my own experience photographing my mother through breast cancer. The camera helped me process a difficult period in my own life and allowed me to find beauty in it. Over the past five years, participants from all walks of life have used cameras to create their own visual diaries. The workshop provides a safe space to share this work and learn from each other. I am looking forward to another great year.
Registration is now open for the 12 week Fall workshops.
All classes are open to people who are in treatment for, or survivors of cancer or other chronic illnesses.
Please call The Creative Center at 646-465-5313 or 646-465-5314 to register.
Weekly on Fridays September 7 – November 30
Track 1: 3-5 pm
Track 2: 6-8 pm (* for young survivors age 40 and younger only)
All classes are held at:
184 Eldridge St. (corner of Rivington and Eldridge)
New York, NY 10002
Funded through a generous donation from the Toskan-Casale Foundation
Participants will use digital cameras to create visual diaries of their own lives. Photos will be discussed, edited and sequenced during weekly sessions. Assignments will focus on expanding participant’s language of photography as well as encourage self reflection and creative expression of one’s personal stories through photographs. Attention will be given to the integration of text with photography as well as the different ways to present the completed journals at the end of the course. We will discuss work by other photographers who have chosen their own lives as subject matter. Participants should have basic computer/internet skills and will be expected to upload between 10 and 20 photographs each week.
