Please note: This thread is not affiliated with any company; I’m just featuring projects that I find.  Please DO NOT send me your work.  I do not take submissions.

Today’s featured artist:  John Huet

Last year Phil Johnson at @agencypja reached out to ask if I’d be interested in working on a pro-bono project for College Bound Dorchester, a nonprofit dedicated to reducing systemic, generational urban poverty and violence by helping formerly gang-involved individuals go to college and start a new life. I had the honor of meeting many of these students and capturing their resilience as part of College Bound’s “Uncornered Photo Documentary” project. The project reveals the power of choosing something different and the universal experience of what it means to be Uncornered, whether you’re a powerful public figure, an athlete, a business leader, a celebrity or gang involved.

Now through August 25, my portraits and the stories of these students and many of Boston’s prominent public figures, including Mayor Marty Walsh, Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley, State Street’s Chief Diversity Officer Paul Francisco, Emmy-winning journalist Andrea Kremer, and Boston Police Commissioner William Gross, to name a few, will be on display at the Boston Common.

WHERE: Boston Common, adjacent to the Little League Field. Enter through the Charles Street entrance, midway between the corners of Boylston St. and Beacon St.

WHEN: August 13-25, 2019

WHO:  Photographer John Huet donated his time to photograph more than two dozen people including the following public figures:

  • Martin J. Walsh, Mayor of Boston
  • Rep. Ayanna Pressley, (D) Massachusetts
  • William Gross, Boston Police Commissioner
  • Steven Tompkins, Sherriff Suffolk County
  • Andrea Kremer, NFL Hall of Fame sports broadcaster
  • Miceal Chamberlain, Massachusetts President of Bank of America
  • Linda Dorcena Forry, Vice President of Diversity, Inclusion and Community Relations, Suffolk Construction
  • Jim Rooney, President and CEO Boston Chamber of Commerce
  • Paul Francisco, Chief Diversity Officer, State Street Corporation.
  • Karen Kaplan, Hill Holiday Chair and CEO
  • Callie Crossley, WGBH Host
  • Claude Dielna, Portland Timbers

Photographs of several Boston Uncornered students, staff and leaders will also be part of the exhibit:

  • Mark Culliton, College Bound Dorchester CEO
  • Michelle Caldeira, College Bound Dorchester Senior Vice President
  • Conan Harris, College Bound Dorchester Vice President of Policy and External Affairs
  • Raul Morales, Boston Uncornered student
  • Irvin Woods, Boston Uncornered student
  • Paul Burns, Boston Uncornered student
  • Alex Diaz, Boston Uncornered student
  • Kismauri Pena, Boston Uncornered student
  • Brittany Baldwin, Boston Uncornered student
  • Quaknesha Garvin Johnson, College Bound Dorchester
  • Elias Perea, College Readiness Advisor
  • Will Dunn, College Readiness Advisor
  • Francisco DePina, College Readiness Advisor
  • Luis Rodrigues, College Readiness Advisor
  • Lealah Fulton, College Bound Dorchester staff

WHY: The journey Boston Uncornered students make from the corner to college has the power to transform Boston, where the one percent of young people (those who are gang involved) occupy the five percent of city’s street corners where nearly 75 percent of the city’s shootings take place. Those with the charisma, influence and ingenuity necessary to form and run gangs are natural leaders. They know how to get others to follow. Boston Uncornered is turning these leaders of gangs into respected members of the city who will lead others toward education and well-paying jobs rather than lives of crime.

Tsukiji Fish Market Circa 2011
OOPS! I thought I already posted these pics of Tsukiji Market. But when putting together my new post for my recent trip to the new Toyosu Fish Market I couldn't find these on the blog. So here is a giant photo dump of my most pleasant trip to Tsukiji in 2011.
Here's some general info about Tsukiji if you don 't know about it:
And another one if you didn't know about the controversial move of the fish market to a new, possibly contaminated plot of land:
And so here are my pics...

Look for Toyosu tomorrow...

How do I take better photos? | Ask Jack Lyndsay wants people to post better pictures on Facebook. Here’s how to get the shot right on your phone or camera

So many people post pictures on Facebook with very advanced cameras, eg from iPhones. Alas, many do not crop their photos, the horizon is not horizontal, there are dark shadows … Some people do not even know the camera can face outwards: I notice so many selfies! I think a gentle article from Jack Schofield on how not to disappoint your friends with holiday pics would be wonderful. Lyndsay (via Facebook)

There are some terrible photos on Facebook, but I think the average level is very high. Back in the dark ages BC (before computers), I edited several photographic magazines and a partwork, You and Your Camera. Then, the quality of the average enprint, as enlarged prints were called, was extremely low, and you couldn’t edit pictures unless you printed them yourself. Photos taken with small-frame film formats – like the 110 cartridges used by Kodak’s Pocket Instamatic cameras, introduced in 1972 – could be dire.

After getting back from our holiday — a full two weeks of not working, save for a few blog posts and recording one episode of The Make Light Show — I sat down to get back to it, and found … nothing. I had halted coaching sessions for all of August, so I didn’t have any clients to meet when I returned that would catapult me into working. Without the urgency of those meetings, I suddenly realized that I had no idea what I was working toward, or for.

So I decided that I needed to get clear on what Chookooloonks Media LLC stands for.

I cleared off my desk, and then I looked at the front page of my site. I revisited my mission statement, to see if I still believed in what I’d written all those years ago. (I do.) Then, in my journal, I crafted a vision statement, that established what I wanted my business to look like, in order to achieve what I’ve claimed as my mission. Then I made a list of the tools and offerings that I currently have and plan on creating to achieve that mission.

And out of all that work came an epic to-do list. I’ve intimidated myself, but I’m up to the task.

It took a solid day to do it all, but I have to say, I was having a ball. Ever since I was a kid, there’s very little I loved more than getting my head organized, with the liberal help of clean sheets of paper, markers, PostIts. Back then, in my mind the only thing better than getting ready for summer was getting ready to go back to school: before that first day, my work area would be all clean, schools supplies all shiny, my head all in the game. Yes, I was a dork. A blissed-out dork.

Sitting down with my journal this past weekend, getting my head in my business game, felt just like that.

This week, I shared all my plans with Kim, and she gave me good feedback, and we’re now off to the races. Over the next few months, you’ll likely see a few tweaks to the site to make sure that it’s all aligned with my refreshed mission and vision, as well as some brand new offerings.

All this to say: in this time of back-to-school, I strongly recommend taking a day to reset and calibrate your true north in your work and business. Clean sheets of paper, colourful markers and PostIts absolutely required.

(And of course, now that I’m back, I’m seeing coaching clients again — so if you’re looking to work one-on-one with a coach to help add purpose and meaning to your work, we should definitely talk.)
