PRESIDENT’S LETTER
There is always a chance that when you ask for help, you will receive it. Thank you again to all the volunteers who help CPM run the day-to-day operations. We appreciate all of those that donate their time to serve on the board, committees and groups. A special thanks goes to JAMES RHEM and

CPM IS MOVING
this project. Be sure to check times before driving out, as summer hours are in effect for the River Arts Center. Ten years (or so) ago, we moved from 303 S. Paterson St., and now we are returning to this location just off Williamson St. Some of the comments by our members about this move: better access to public transportation; a more central location that is closer to other arts organizations; it’s more conducive to socializing after events. JIM WILDEMAN describes this new space as being, large, well equipped and beautiful. Please watch the weekly email for information about classes, meetings and the next GALA. If you have some time to help with this move, please contact Reece Donihi or leave a message at CPM (608276-8099 or info@cpmad.org).

DAY’S DRIVE, CONT.
David Seidner: Paris Fashions, 1945 In 1944, the war-battered French couture industry decided to revive its international reputation by conceiving a small exhibition entitled Théâtre de la Mode. The exhibition organizer enlisted the major fashion designers of the day, to create outfits for small wire-frame dolls just over two feet tall. With the return of the French fashion industry, the dolls had completed their work and were donated to the Maryhill Museum near Portland, Oregon, where they disappeared from view. Under an extraordinary set of circumstances in 1990, the dolls were rediscovered and returned to Paris, recoiffed and restyled for an exhibition at the Musée de la Mode. Because of his pioneering work with French fashion and historical gowns, DAVID SEIDNER was asked to photograph the little dolls. ICP will exhibit fifteen of Seidner’s color photographs from the David Seidner Archive in the Permanent Collection, along with one of the original dolls. Through September 20, 2009. John Wood: Quiet Protest Quiet Protest is a series of photographic works by the noted mixed media artist and educator JOHN WOOD, spanning a period from the 1960s through the 1990s. Through September 20, 2009.

SMALL TOWN MIDWEST SHOW
The photographs of Small Town Midwest were displayed at the River Arts Center, 105 9th Street in Prairie du Sac, Wisconsin. They were from a juried exhibition arranged and sponsored by The Center for Photography at Madison, with additional sponsorship by Eannelli Pharmacy in Prairie du Sac. IDA WYMAN, the juror, selected the images from several entrants, bringing together photography from both CPM members and nonmembers. The images in this exhibition depicted life in small towns anywhere in the Midwest varying from people, buildings, events, and places, showing how these images compare and differ from big cities. The gallery featured the juried photographs. Around the rest of the building were images from CPM members that enhance the wonderful juried exhibition. The award winners were best of show TREVOR PASSMORE with “Barn Near Muscoda”; second place, DEBBIE CARLEY with “Middle Racoon River – Panora, Iowa”; third place, JOEL COVEY with “Parade Day”; fourth place, JOHN

CPM MEMBER PROFILE: CARL BOWSER
Carl Bowser is this attend a few of them. He credits that facility and its staff with helping him find his photographic voice. His influences include Ansel Adams, along with more contemporary shooters David Plowden and Eddie Soloway. Like most film purists, he laments the industry transition to digital (probably because he has an amazing home darkroom and film camera collection), but at the same time is excited about the new possibilities digital provides. Carl retired from his day job as a Professor of Geology at Growing up in California, he attended UC Riverside and UCLA, earning his PhD. in Geology and Geochemistry. It was during his college years that he took a camp course to the Grand Canyon and fell in love with the landscape of the American Southwest. He became a faculty member of the UW Madison Geology department in 1964 and through his work, has traveled all over the world, including Antarctica. He never forgot his love of the southwest, and since discovering the programs offered at Santa Fe Photographic Workshops, he has found occasion to

many of her paintings. I took the photo under my favorite kind of sky, what I call a “John Ford Sky”. Waiting until cloud shadows helped define the line of slope to the left of Chimney Rock it helps define a great sense of depth to the scene. Back Cover Photo: “Icarus Revisited” was taken digitally (as were the other two), but I felt that the black and white rendition was far superior to the color rendition. I chose to darken the balloons to a silhouette with the blazing white of the sun giving the impression of a fleet of ‘icarian’ vessels on a trip to the sun. I took many shots at the balloon launch, all in color, but this one stood out, but only as a black and white image. Page 8: “Cameo Carver – Naples, Italy” was taken on our trip to Italy and Greece last year. One of our tours was to a cameo factory and this woman was working on a cameo as we visited. A stunningly beautiful woman with fine italian features, she was oblivious to my photography as I shot several of her at work. This one is my favorite; the lighting, her profile, her concentration all led to on of my favorite shots of the whole trip.

ABOUT CARL’S PHOTOGRAPHS IN THIS ISSUE:
Front Cover Photo: “Chimney Rock, Ghost Ranch, NM” was taken during the George DeWolfe workshop on “Master Printing in Black and White”, a workshop sponsored by the Santa Fe Workshops in, surprise, Santa Fe. We traveled to an old hangout of mine, Ghost Ranch, about 40 miles north of Santa Fe. Most people associate the locale with Georgia O’Keeffe, as it was her first New Mexico home when she took up residence in the state. The feature, Chimney Rock, figures prominently in

History. It’s something I’ve been thinking about a lot recently. History. It shows us where we came from, it informs where we are today, and it points us to different paths for the future. June 6, 2009. The 65th anniversary of the Allied invasion of Normandy, France. The beginning of the end of World War Two. June 17, 1944. My father’s unit finally makes it to Normandy, after having sat in troopships for six days, waiting for the weather to clear enough again so that the transports could sail out of Southampton. He likes to joke that it took him longer to cross the Channel from England to France than it had taken to cross the Atlantic on the Queen Mary (which had been requisitioned as a troop carrier) the previous fall (four days). May 8, 1945. V-E day. August 15, 1945. V-J day. Both dates conjure up visions of the photos that are seared in the mind’s eye. From Europe, pictures from the liberation of the concentration camps. From Japan, pictures from the real Ground Zero, the city of Hiroshima. From Times Square, the sailor kissing the passing girl as ticker tape floats down around them. Photography, since its inception, has been an enormous

part of how history is viewed (pun intended). It has been a factor in changing history, in helping to make sure that certain parts of history do not get repeated. It has also been a part of the celebration of history.

CPM moving from the Cottonwood Drive location to the new, but yet old to CPM, location at 303 S. Paterson Street is a small circle, but a circle, nonetheless. History again — the past leading us to the future.

History goes in circles, both large and small. The anniversary of the Normandy invasion is a large circle.

EXHIBITION OPPORTUNITY
A new restaurant has opened, and the owner is looking for artwork to display and possibly sell. “I am currently planning on changing out the pieces every month or so to a new generalized theme. I’m trying to reach as many possible artists to have a real variety of what is being displayed. Since I don’t have any monetary contribution for the artists, I am offering them the option to sell the pieces to customers.” The restaurant is at 1017 S. Park St. If interested, please contact Pamela at 608-477-3247.

IN MEMORIAM
Bill Maund lost his battle with pancreatic cancer on July 10, 2009. As a child, he suffered an illness that almost left him without his sight. Perhaps that is one reason why he placed such a high value on the visual image. Bill started to supplement his income by working as a photographer while he was still in high school. He often told how he would be sent to capture 12 images of a wedding with 12 pieces of film for his view camera. That type of assignment encouraged discipline and visualization skills which served him well throughout his life. Bill served in the Air force as a photographer. It was there that he met his wife, Kyoko, and Nyle Leatham, a famous shooting sports photographer. The two families developed a life-long friendship. After receiving his Bachelor’s degree from the San Francisco School of Fine Arts, they moved to New York City, where Bill set up his own photography studio. When their children were of school age, Bill and Kyoko decided that they wanted to raise their kids somewhere other than New York. Bill accepted a position at the UW Photo Lab and moved to Madison. Eventually, the Photo Lab was absorbed by the WHA studios. Bill worked as both a film and video producer for WHA before he retired. Bill’s work was

He lived in a time when he was able to socialize with the Bill was a consummate teacher who made you learn in spite of yourself by his straight-forward yet compassionate and understanding manner in interacting with you. His patience with you as an individual made you work harder so that you would not disappoint him. He freely offered his knowledge and took pleasure in your success and accomplishment at the subject at hand. He brought this same sense of professionalism to the task of organizing and overseeing CPM’s education program after assuming leadership for that activity during the past year. Several new courses were offered because of Bills leadership and his personal teaching in courses was highly rated. Bill was also an engaging person with whom to discuss a broad array of issues beyond photography. Part of his charm was that he loved to tell a good story. He will be greatly missed for his counsel, frankness, wisdom and most of all, for his friendship. We will miss seeing his highly professional images that served to inspire our own work and his thoughtful commentary on our own work during CPM Special Group Meetings.
