Arts • Images • Media • Culture

Bill Durgin
Hi All! Can you believe it's July already? Man, time is flying. Something different this week: I'm excited to team up with Klompching Gallery to feature this year's FRESH2015 Annual Summer Show photographers. FPD #16 includes contributions from Bill Durgin, Ima Mfon, Johanna Warwick, Kimberly Witham and Matthew Arnold (click on each picture to visit that imagemaker's website). Of course, I'm always looking — please submit your work anytime. As always, feel free to reply to this email with your reactions. Now, sit back and relax. And, if you tweet these links, tag me @FlakPhoto so I can see. Enjoy! — AA
