Because she’s already nationally recognized, calling Deana Lawson an emerging artist sounds strange. But if I compiled a roster of 30 photographers under 30 to watch, she’d be on that list. (And not just because she’s my wife’s cousin). SIF Advisory Board Member Odetta Norton informed me that Deana was recently awarded a residency at the Light Work program in Syracuse. I remember seeing Deana’s photo work when she was in high school and even then it was beyond impressive.

I took some time off last week to work with my children to produce a short for my son’s class presentation. My son produced the music; my daughter coordinated the interviews, I was in charge of finding pictures. Here are the results of our work.
Six Chasing Seven, the folk-soul collective from Southern Virginia, may be the best band I’ve seen this year. 6C7 operates comfortably on several levels: they can move the crowd with a high-energy style, or they can smooth it out with an inspirational message that’s easy like a Sunday morning. The band formed in 2003 and has recorded with Boyd Tinsley and Robert Randolph.
They will return to Syracuse in a few weeks to play Funk ‘n Waffles.
