“Identity” Who are you? Who are we? Who was that masked man, anyway? 
Let’s explore identity in all its forms, perceptions and definitions. Consider who you are, what you stand for, your roots. Discover how another person or group identifies himself/herself/themselves…through their culture, interests, history. Go ahead, have an identity crisis!

Studio Visit, Photographer, Dennis Stein

These are shots from Dennis Stein's Studio at the Mother Brooks Art and Community Center, Dennis is a fine art photographer who likes to use toy cameras, his iphone and Polaroid cameras to make his art and express his vision. He asked the Guild members if anyone had a specific Polaroid camera for him to use. Kerry, (that's me) happened to have one in a collection of camera's he could. It will be interesting to see the results of his picture taking
