Henry at Handworks

May 21, 2013 — 2 Comments

This Saturday morning, I will be speaking along with Don Williams and Christopher Schwarz in Amana, Iowa at Handworks, a formidable gathering of people interested in woodworking tools and traditions.

I’m a late addition to the speaker lineup, which is perhaps appropriate because actually–I won’t be speaking that much. Doing most of the speaking for me will be a small selection of the thousands of images I’ve taken in the last two years of the Henry O. Studley Toolchest project. This will be the first time the public has ever seen most of these images, which will likely not be seen again until they are featured in Virtuoso, a book being written by the aforementioned Don Williams and published by Lost Art Press

The Studley Toolchest

I’ve written before about this project and my involvement with it, but I can’t say enough how great it is to work with Don and with Chris (again) and to have the privilege of examining and documenting this national treasure. I’m excited to share that experience and some of its results-to-date with the Handworks audience on Saturday.

  1. Nice job at the presentation. I wanted to catch up with you (and see that iPad loaded with pictures, but I didn’t have a chance. I’m hoping that sometime in the future you and Lost Art Press can put up a file with some of your favorites for us to browse. Either way – nice work – I’m a hobbiest photog and I can tell how much work went into those images.

    • Thanks, Joe. I suspect the published book will be the next time these images are seen by the masses, but we’ll see. If we happen to converge in the same location someday between now and then, I’ll still have my iPad with me… 🙂

      Glad you enjoyed the presentation.
