6:30: Julie Gelfand
The following are threads that tie together Julie’s photography and approach to life: the thrill of making connections, the practice of walking with eyes always open to new discoveries, and a drive to affirm and share those discoveries with others. As family and financial needs have changed over the years, so have her photographic and life priorities. Her children are both now living in Boston, treading water though their own versions of adulthood. Being able to live on less income is a gift they left in their wake. Now Julie devotes much of her time working with others to promote housing rights for all. She carries her camera everywhere, a tool to inform and promote awareness and appreciation of that which is often less noticed.
