Jay and I at the Show;-)
Here is a short description of the project. "Over the course of the past year, our husbands and fathers were deployed to Afghanistan. While they were away we documented what life was like without them. These photographs depict our lives as members of the 173rd Airborne Brigade, stationed at Caserma Ederle. This exhibition consists of 52 photographs taken by wives, children, and extended family during each week of their loved one’s absence."The opening night was great and lots of Americans and Italians have come to see the exhibition. After the holidays I will get it all up online with the descriptions and narratives for anyone who is interested in seeing the complete project.
Here are some of the amazing ladies I had the pleasure of working with who helped make this show possible.
The space that we were able to use is a beautiful gallery in a 500 year old Palladio (famous Italian Architect) Palace.
One of the panels.
Yes that is Chiara;-) My official week for the project was the week Chiara was born. As the curator I added a few other photographs to help complete the story of our year.

We have electricity now but we went about 36 hours without and I was starting to think we might have to jump ship and head to a friends house if it did not come back on soon. This is the view from behind our apt.
No we do not live in Venice, but you might wonder from this picture. I was pretty surprised to wake up to this view Monday morning just before our electricity went out.
Max and I spent some time on an abstract painting for Jay's return in about a week. We are happy the electricity is back on and now can better prepare for his homecoming.

These are a few pictures from our Saturday morning at Teatro Olimpico.
Max had a good time running around being silly with his new hat that he picked out while shopping on line. And Barry did a great job capturing it all.
I can't remember exactly what we were laughing about here but looks like it was pretty funny;-)
