This past weekend we had our first two shoots. On Friday afternoon we battled the elements and traveled to Stewart Park to meet with Diana Riesman and Connie Bruce. We interviewed both of these fascinating ladies and got some beautiful, scenic views of Cayuga Lake. With the cold weather, strong winds, and snow this is one shoot we will never forget.
On Saturday we went to Tompkins County Library and attended a video screening hosted by Terry Harbin. Terry showed past Ithaca student’s projects from the 1970s and 80s as well some projects of his own. At the end of the screening we spoke to some Ithaca natives and Terry told us all about the history of The Wharton brothers.
