I have a list of photographers I who I want to met. I keep in on a personal wiki. When I see something interesting, usually a photo essay, I add a name to my list. Francine Orr made my list for her outstanding work on Living under the 7th Street Bridge (Nov 2009). She an LA based photojournalist working for the LA Times.
She’s speaking at the Annenberg Space for Photography. I plan to catch it.
