I am planning on attending. I look forward to seeing his work and hearing him speak about capturing the "changing urban landscape." I always find it interesting to see others' work. I hope to expand my own thinking in terms of shooting what is right in front of me. The challege for me is always how to capture our everyday lives, the landscape of people and places we call home – and away – in an interesting and meaningful way.
