16th Annual Palo Alto Weekly Photo Contest
Brigitte Carnochan's painted gelatin silver photographs have been exhibited at galleries and museums nationally and internationally. A book of her images, "Bella Figura: Painted Photographs by Brigitte Carnochan," containing 74 color plates of her work was published by Modernbook Editions in July 2006. A second, limited-edition monograph with 11 gelatin silver photographs, "The Shining Path," was published by 21st Publications, also in 2006. Carnochan's work has recently been featured on the cover of Camera Arts and in View Camera magazine. She regularly teaches a sequence of photography classes through the Stanford Continuing Studies program and serves on the board of the Santa Fe Center for Photography and the Committee for Art of the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital.
Angela Filo is working on a long-term photography project on the changing landscape in Silicon Valley, as well as a series focusing on the tech boom in India. She teaches journalism and advises the school newspaper at Eastside College Preparatory School in East Palo Alto, which recently received a "First Place Best of Show" award by the National Scholastic Press Association. Angela's Silicon Valley photographs are in the collection of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and are included in a current show at the San Jose Museum of Art titled "Suburban Escape: Art of California Sprawl."

The forest, coastal and wetland environments of the Bay Area (places he has explored with great care and patience) are an ongoing focus of his work. He exhibits his work locally, lectures on the art of photography and occasionally teaches workshops on photography. David is represented by Modernbook Gallery in Palo Alto.
