I have approximately 75 rolls or packs of long-expired 35mm, 120, and Polaroid film. Yours for the taking. If you need a role model, look to Saul Leiter, a master of street photography, who often bought color film that was past its expiration date. Leiter loved being surprised by the odd shifts of color that resulted.Probably lots of other non-photographic uses as well for either the stock itself or cassette containers.See More

Collection Management Query

Is anyone using a database program they like for organizing and tracking a collection of visual images and showing them on the web across multiple platforms? Or can you refer me to someone with experience in this area who knows what software is worth looking at and which programs are best avoided? Many thanks for any assistance you can offer.See More

Profile Information

How long have you lived in Beacon?
Since November, 2012.
More about me:
I’m primarily a visual artist with a long-term interest in participatory experiences that strengthen human bonds while fostering the sense of wonder. Also, a huge proponent of play for adults, and the creator of Noodle Talk, “the best excuse to sit around and schmooze since grunting gave way to grammar” (http://www.noodletalk.com).

As founder of ElderSparks (http://eldersparks.wordpress.com/), I’ve spent the last two years working with cognitively impaired seniors to enrich their lives through art making and creative self-expression. Before that, I was a professional photographer for more than three decades, specializing in editorial assignments for large corporations, national and regional magazines, and academia.

What's your favorite thing about Beacon?
The fact that there are so many answers to this question, I can’t pick one.
