The Art of Photography Show Presents
Photographer Judith Fox
When: Tuesday, October 13, 2009 at 7:00 pm
Location: Lyceum Theatre Gallery, Downtown San Diego in Horton Plaza
The Art of Photography Show welcomes professional photographer and author Judith Fox. She will be giving a sneak preview and A/V presentation about her new book, "I Still Do: Loving and Living with Alzheimer's", a poignant and beautiful portrait of a man with Alzheimer's as seen through the loving lens and words of his wife and care-partner. Early VIP release of the book will be available at the event.
More than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's. "I Still Do: Loving and Living with Alzheimer's" puts a human face in front of the statistics, exploring the disease through Fox's intimate photographs and poetic writing. While the details of I Still Do are personal and unique, this deeply candid story of illness, aging, partnership, and loving is universal. The transformative power of art as witnessed in this book is a love story that transcends illness and aging.
Judith Fox has had two careers: one as an artist and one as an entrepreneur. After working as a photographer, writer and business executive in New York, Fox started a service company in Virginia that expanded in size and reputation and was eventually purchased by a New York Stock Exchange firm. After selling her company, she devoted herself full-time to photography. Fox's award-winning photographs have been in solo and group shows in New York, Los Angeles and major cities in Virginia. Her photographs are in the permanent collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), the Museum of Photographic Arts (MOPA) and the Harry Ransom Center in Austin, as well as private and corporate collections throughout the United States and Europe. The Southeast Museum of Photography will be having an exhibition of Fox's work in fall 2010. Fox has been featured in dozens of newspaper and magazine articles and interviewed on numerous television and radio shows. Her NPR program, On the Job, ran in Virginia and Washington, D.C. She lives and works in southern California.
