I hardly feel more connected to any group of people outside of my own family, Tlingit Nation, school where I teach, or friends. I have known many of these photographers for just about my entire career, so YES, I will be there. To listen. To See. To share. Like our honored elders say, "If they can't make it, we'll just have to have fun without them..."
