Things are coming to an end

October 28th, 2013


Last time we talked, July 8th, I was about to leave for a big road trip. And before you ask, no, things did not go wrong. I am well and alive, living my last semester in the USA intensively.

The trip, 36 days on the road, was remarkable, a good and peaceful farewell to the American West. And since our return, many other good things have been happening, a more frequent collaboration with Chicago Reader and many other works covering food related events and meeting people engaged on making the world a better place for us to leave and eat.

But the most exciting announcement is that I just finished my Photography Certificate Program at Chicago Photography Center . It is been an amazing journey and I am really, really grateful for all the great people/photographers who guided me and influenced my work.

And now it is time to celebrate! The talented photographer Jeff Johson and I are sharing gallery B for our final exhibit and the Opening Reception is Friday, Nov 1st. You are welcome to joy us!!

    Amanda, I love the way you write and photograph. I had lost the link to your blog for a while and I'[m so very happy I’ve found it again. I studied in Minas – universtity, and I’m very fond of that state and its people..and foods. I just stopped by to say that. And that I get terribly inspired by what you write and show here. Your unique style – beautiful ..and so yours. Wishing you the best time at the exhibition. I’ve now bookmarked your blog so that I do not miss any more of your posts. I’m also sending links to friends. 🙂
