Nancy Baron will tell you how she came to spend 10 years documenting Palm Springs, her second home. She’ll talk about developing a long-term personal photo project including the things that have worked for her and things that have not and why. Nancy will be showing work that will illustrate her process. Although her new Schiffer Publishing book, Palm Springs Modern Dogs at Home will be in the spotlight, Nancy will include work from all four of her monographs and talk about her journey to getting them published, and the lessons she’s learned along the way.
