Photographer Gay Block talks about her life and work. Radius books in Santa Fe recently published Gay’s monograph, About Love: Photographs and Films 1973-2011. From early portraits of her mother and her parents friends in Houston, to the Miami Beach Jewish community, to Christians who rescued Jews during the Holocaust to her camp girls series — pairs of pictures taken of girls in their teens and then 25 years later when they were women. Podcast listeners, this is a re-edited version of the Gay Block interview for the radio show. Some audio problems in the original version are solved (yea!) and the edit contains more audio from Gay’s films. And Jim Atwood’s New Mexico Minute on yet another financial scandal involving public funds.
