Momenta Pairs Photographers With Nonprofits

Momenta pairs students with local nonprofits to create photo or video stories that speak to the mission of the partner organization.
By William Sawalich
Not long ago I wrote about photographer Colby Brown and his philanthropic organization, The Giving Lens, which pairs photographers with NGO organizations worldwide for photo workshops with a higher purpose. Well I recently learned about another organization with a similar concept a little closer to home. It's called Momenta Workshops,…

Terra Flamma

Palley is certainly making something beautiful out of something terrible.
By William Sawalich
With deadly wildfires raging throughout the west, this collection of nighttime work from photographer Stuart Palley is particularly timely and poignant.
