After our initial catch up with one another, and meeting new friends, this month's meeting featured an interesting, edifying look into Magdalena Sole's work and process. It was inspirational to listen to her stories of entering unknown worlds, connecting with people and susequent acceptance into their lives. Her photographs capture this acceptance with beauty and grace. We also enjoyed looking at the creative, impressive work of PWP Member Dianne Yudelson during the curtain raiser.
Magdalena Sole was born in Spain and grew up in Switzerland, as a daughter of Spanish immigrants. She holds a Masters of Fine Art from Columbia University. Her work has won numerous awards, including the Silver Award in 2011 at PX3 Prix de la Photographie, France for her new book, "New Delta Rising" (University Press of Mississippi), and an Oscar for "Man on Wire" for which she was the Production Manager.
