I'm constantly amazed by how images and words about American barns resonate with people. Everywhere we go for presentations and book signings for "Wisconsin Barns," we get nice crowds of people with lots of their own stories to tell.
The latest example came at the Northbrook Public Library, where we had a nice crowd of barn fans, some of whom stayed long after we were done just talking about their love of the American icon.
Thanks to the staff at Northbrook for having us visit, especially a certain tech person who saved the night with a laptop that would actually show my PowerPoint show!
Next up is Sept. presentation in Kenosha.
If you are interested in the program, drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.Also on the horizon is another session of "Barn Photography: Photographing an American Icon" at Harper College in Palatine later this summer (www.harpercollege.edu/ce), as well as "Flower Photography Inside and Out" and "Photography Continued," also at Harper this fall.
