Students await Carrie Mae Weems

How do I use what I know and what I understand to create my fine art images?

How can my photography activate a group of people in a sustained way?

These are a couple inspiring questions that grabbed my attention as I listened to Carrie Mae Weems speak at Columbia College. Not only was I urged to understand what my passions in life were, but also to create art connected to that passion that will say something signifiicant. . . art that will create conversations between people and make people think. What a motivating speaker!

Three Decades of Photography and Video is Carrie Mae Weem’s new book.
