Re: “With mixed emotions, Bill Edwards closes Lumiere

Wonderful article on someone who really, deeply and gracefully shaped photography in Rochester, not to mention nationally.
I am glad these days of great menace to the arts (NEA and NEH budgets) that City turns a more attentive eye to the visual arts, and more precisely one, photography, that shaped this city.
Now on a more personal level I would like to point out that, in terms of fairness, not to mention legality (intellectual rights) and professionalism, mentioning work without referring to its author is not exactly right. I acted as a volunteer as Spectrum's Gallery director for a year and a half during which I was co-responsible for Tate Shaw's show (with the author): "the first US exhibit of photos by young Ukrainian photographer Sergiy Lebedynskyy" was entirely my doing from seeking him, meeting him and bringing his work back from Paris, editing, scanning, printing material for the show; I also organized two shows, amomg which one strictly dedicated to Rochester photographers, including Bill Edwards (as mentioned he had to be asked to show his work ;o) ), Carl Chiarenza and Nathan Lyons. Of course, all of this would never have been possible without Bill's support, including his cutting the frames for Sergiy's show. That is whom he is: supportive and dedicated. I am surprised that the author of this article who wonderfully covered Sergiy's exhibition for City seemed suddenly stricken with amnesia when it came to whom the curator of these shows was, and this when many others who worked with Bill (or not) were mentioned.
