    I wish I could get hold of the first two issues. I'll have to check out the website.

    Well, we can always sign a petition of people interested in seeing her back. No invitation, no obligations. More like an invitation, a reminder that she is free to come back, or lurk for a while. Just something saying "Hey, we the undersigned are serious students of photography and would like to hear your point of view and would like to see you back to APUG."

    Just a thought

    Marc, it's a nice idea. But anyone who
    posts nudes on APUG quickly learns that
    this is a pretty hostile site for nude work
    and the attacks become ugly and personal
    very quickly.

    I don't know about that. I see a lot of figure work in the Apug gallery. Maybe its the style of figure work that she (Carrie) does. I like to think that the majority of the Apug membership is more open now then when Carrie was around.
    Thinking about further I know that we are a better organization then some others. I posted work on another website by Martha Casanave and got band and told never to post anything like that again. But, this website posts work of couples making far more suggested poses clothed then Martha's straight figure work.

    Robert, perhaps you are right.
    Maybe it was just my own work
    that pissed people off so much.

    I've accessed this site, read some of the dialog there ... and I agree - in large part, with the characterization.

    I remember the "split" - it was something more significant than "fading away". There were deep and lasting wounds suffered - mostly away from - and without any mitigation or control possible from APUG.

    I admired those on BOTH sides of this conflict ... Zoe is a wonderful model, her website contains a great deal of really fine work, and she offers valuable insight from the model's veiwpoint.
    On the other side were a few - certainly less than ten - members of APUG who, in my humble opinion, were struck with a MAJOR case of 'superego' morality distortion - utter, furious outrage directed towards anyone who dared to participate in an art form justified by thousands of years of recogniton.

    My ideal resolution to all this would be the return of everyone to APUG. Certainly no one could argue about the value of the contributions from everyone involved - but ....

    Let us resolve to be kind, and respectful to one another - and supportive of their chosen work.
    Carpe erratum!!

    Which I quite don't understand...
    We all know that the first photo is a ghost-like image of a rooftop and I can bet the farm that the second one was a nude. Look at all the works by Cunningham and Weston and the price they command right now.
    Getting up close and personal for every dislike seems to be the new way of life nowadays.

    Though I don't comment, I really do appreciate your work; your prints are always beautiful and I'm always ending up with more questions than answers.
