Covid has caused all of us to be creative in ways we have not been before. Because it is not currently possible for Monalog to schedule in-person photographic events, the Collective will be hosting a series of exciting virtual events until we and our fellow black and white analog photographers can get together. Your Covid-19 Photographic Life is the first of Monalog’s virtual events. This event features an intimate discussion with Monalog Collective members Michael Marks, Paul Margolis and David Haas concerning the photographic challenges they have faced during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Monalog member David Haas printed forty-two 20×24 and 24×36 prints for Paul Ickovic’s current exhibit at the Bibliothèque Nationale de France. The show runs from April 15th to June 7th. For more information see https://www.bnf.fr/sites/default/files/2020-09/CP_Photo_2020_2021.pdf
