Nina Barcellona

director’s column

In September, SPE was

invited by the World

Photography Organization

to participate in

an inaugural international

educators’ Forum

as part of Photokina in

Cologne. I was asked

to lead a session about

issues facing photographic

education today,

in search of common

challenges and possible

solutions. It was an

engaged group with

representatives from all around Western Europe, and

the conversation was lively and productive yielding a

summary paper and a collaborative list of core competencies

for students of photography. The gathering

included a student for every educator, and we had a

wonderful group portfolio sharing session as well. SPE

made a lot of new friends and some significant headway

toward our goal of global expansion of our membership,

and I look forward to continued exchange with

this group.

SPE’s regions had an exciting fall season of conferences

and activities! This was the first year that regions

were using the new integrated SPE website system to

manage registrations and promotion. Although with any

new method there are always a few bugs, we observed

a wonderful streamlining of the registration process and

are encouraged by the availability of this new resource

for the regional chapters. The regional leaders and

conference organizers all deserve a big shout for their

hard work!

A special note regarding our members in the Mid-Atlantic

region: About 10 days before their well-planned

event was to take place in Jersey City, Super Storm

Sandy moved through the east coast. We made the

difficult decision to cancel the event due to the aftermath

of the storm, and invited members to apply some

of their refund to hurricane relief funds. Let’s have a

shout-out to all the folks who worked toward making

that event a success.

Behind the scenes a very dedicated and hardworking

committee has been working to get traction with SPE’s

50th Anniversary Campaign “Future Focus.” The

group, led by Nancy Stuart with honorary chairs Joan

and Nathan Lyons, have been engaged in getting

pledges during the Inner Family and Pacesetting

phases of the campaign. In March, we will invite the entire

membership to participate, at whatever level works

for each individual. This campaign will fuel exciting new

initiatives generated by SPE’s strategic plan, carefully

forged by SPE’s national board. SPE’s leaders are eager

to help SPE expand its programming and benefits

to members, to move the organization into a robust and

dynamic future, and launched this campaign to achieve

these goals.

The 50th Anniversary Campaign will span 2011-2015

to give us a chance to reach our ambitious fundraising

goal of $150,000. Some of the new initiatives that will

be funded by the campaign include commemorative

publications showcasing member work and SPE’s journal,

an SPE lecture series, member exhibitions, portfolio

reviews, project grants for members, and much more.

Stay tuned for updates, and feel free to contact SPE’s

national office if you are interested in learning more, or

participating sooner! Consider purchasing the book,

SPE: The Formative Years, edited by Nathan Lyons and

commemorating the beginnings of SPE—a portion of

the proceeds will go directly into the campaign! See

the next page of this eNewsletter for more details.

We have continued with SPE’s Online Portfolio

Reviews, a program that celebrates the SPE website

online member galleries. Member portfolios can

be viewed by the public or shared only with the SPE

community, depending on members’ preferences. 2012

reviewers included Mark Malloy, Nate Larson and Heike

Lowenstein who all shared feedback with members.

Reviewers select work to be included on the SPE’s

home page rotation, creating an online “exhibition.”

Those interested in being considered as future online

portfolio reviewers or in nominating others should send

me an email at vmorrison@spenational.org.

We continue to encourage more engagement in this

dynamic area of SPE’s site. Greater member participation

will make us all stronger. We’ve heard from a

number of members who use the galleries in the classroom

to show students very new and interesting work

not available anywhere else. So get your work posted

to SPE’s member gallery, if it’s not already there, and

consider including artist statements and bio info to help

people get more access to your work and your creative

process. Since the website launched in August 2010,

we have featured 130 members’ work on the home

page through twelve home page “exhibitions!” There

are currently 500 members represented in SPE’s online

gallery.

I’d like to give a warm welcome to SPE’s newly elected

board members: Claude Baillargeon, Jeff Curto,

Amy Holmes George, Robin Germany and Michelle

Bogre. Jeff is returning for a second term, which is

great news given all the contributions he has made

during his first term. Amy, Robin and Michelle are

beginning their first full terms in March, and we look

forward to having their voices on SPE’s national board.

Many thanks to outgoing board members Dornith

Doherty, Sama Alshaibi, and Richard Gray whose contributions

to SPE’s management are far reaching. Richard

served as Chairman of the Board during a pivotal

time for SPE, and helped guide a management transition

and a number of big initiatives. Dornith has served

in a number of capacities, most notably as the chair of

the nominating committee. Under her leadership, the

committee has provided balanced and qualified slates

of nominees and also shifted to electronic voting. In

addition to being the board liaison to the Multicultural

Caucus, Sama assumed lead roles in the submission

of major grant applications and helped develop a

resource of possible sources for external funding for

SPE. They all wore many more hats, and showed true

generosity of spirit throughout their terms.

In March of 2013, we’ll host a celebration in Chicago

—SPE national conference-style—to commemorate

50 years since the first national conference held in

Chicago. The stunning Palmer House Hilton will be

the ideal backdrop for this special gathering, with a

low room rate brokered for SPE attendees. Jeff Curto

is chairing the conference and his theme, “Conferring

Significance: Celebrating Photography’s Continuum,”

reflects SPE’s future as well as its past. The programming

for the conference is outstanding and updates are

being entered regularly on the website: https://www.

spenational.org/conference. Many thanks to the 2013

conference committee, the peer review committee,

SPE’s national office staff and the nimble local Chicago

committee for all the efforts at bringing this event to life!

Happy Anniversary SPE—look forward to catching up

in Chicago!

With appreciation,

Virginia “Ginny” Morrison

SPE Excecutive Director

a very close race. We appreciate the engagement

of our members and would like to extend our

congratulations to the following newly-elected

Board Members whose terms will begin in March

2013: Claude Baillargeon, Michelle Bogre, Jeff

IN MEMOriam

SPE was saddened to learn of the passing of

Marlene Hawthrone Thomas, artist, student and

our 2011 Conference Photographer. Savannah

College of Art and Design Atlanta has set up a

memorial scholarship in Marlene’s memory, for

more information click here. The Atlanta memorial

is scheduled for Sunday, January 27th.

Professor Leslie Stroebel was a participant in the

formation of SPE. He passed away peacefully

at the age of 92 on November 14, 2012. A

well-liked and respected Professor Emeritus

of Photography who taught countless students

during his 44 years at Rochester Institute of

Technology (RIT), Dr. Stroebel wrote and coauthored

photography reference books and texts

used to teach generations of photographers. As

one former student put it, “An icon of large format

photography, he had a large format heart.” Click

here to view Leslie Stroebel’s obituary.

Reg Heron, of Dresden, Maine, passed away

on December 15, 2012. He received his BS in

photography the Illinois Institute of Technology in

1963, followed by an MS in 1966. Teaching was

his passion. After positions at the Visual Studies

Workshop in Rochester, Purdue University, and

Indiana University, his beloved mentor Henry

Holmes Smith, an SPE founder, hired Reg at

Indiana University in Bloomington, where he taught

until retiring in 1997. He will be remembered all his

Caryn Coyle

students for whom he was not only mentor, but also

often a second father. The family has suggested

memorial contributions may be sent to:

FUTUrE FOCUS: SPE’s 50th Anniversary Campaign Update

Many thanks to the 50cc committee (Mark Klett, Gary Kolb, Steven Benson, Dennis Keeley, Richard Gray,

Joann Brennan, Nate Larson, Michael Marshall, Tom Fischer, committee chair, Nancy Stuart and honorary

co-chairs Joan and Nathan Lyons) who have been working behind the scenes laying the groundwork for

the campaign launch at the national conference in Chicago. Board members have been considering their

own pledges recognizing the importance of having the organization’s leadership fully involved prior to the

conference. Many conversations have taken place over the phone lines to engage many long term SPE

members by getting their feedback and suggestions.

“This is the first time that SPE has reached out beyond membership drives and silent auctions to secure

its future and expand its programming. Many of us have enjoyed careers in photographic education that

have been enriched by SPE conferences and publications.

It feels like the right time to honor its founders and give

back,” said campaign chair Nancy Stuart.

Honorary campaign co-chair Nathan Lyons was on stage

at the recent NE Regional meeting with Ken Josephson

reminiscing on the 1962 Conference on Teaching

Photography at the George Eastman House. Historian

Jessica McDonald posed questions based on the book

she edited entitled Nathan Lyons: Selected Essays,

Lectures, and Interviews. The audience was reminded

of the void that existed pre 1960 in photographic

scholarship, pedagogy, and collegiality. We’ve come a

long way and that is something to celebrate!

See you in Chicago!

As part of SPE’s 50th anniversary celebration, we are working

community to explore ideas and work together to accomplish

common goals. Topics will include emerging issues in education,

photography and technology.

The Silent Auction is a very popular part of the annual conference,

and serves as a vital fundraiser for the society. Thanks to the

generosity of members, sponsors, and friends of SPE who donate

products including books, photographic supplies, marketing

consultations, premium inkjet photo paper, online photography

services, and much more. Silent Auction items will be on view and

open for bids in the Exhibits Fair. Participation is open to all conference

the Palmer House Hilton’s TV network on channel 58 which can be

viewed in the comfort of your hotel room!

Dance Party

Mark your calendars for the best celebration of the year, SPE’s annual

dance party! Three days of intellectual stimulation can sometimes

lead to oversaturation, so blow off that excess steam on the

SPE dance floor. In honor of our 50th anniversary, we encourage

you to dress in 1960’s attire. Whether you’re a Mod, Hippy, Rock

n Roller, Surfer, Mad Man/Woman, Bond Girl, into Motown, Soul

or Rock ‘n Roll, come boogie the night away! Sponsored by MAC

Group.
