Unusual Animals
by Dianne Kellogg

Dianne Kellogg is a rural, Northeastern Ohio photographer and artist, who enjoys capturing the sights of her area along with those from her annual winter migration to warmer climes. Below are four examples of her photography of animals from near and far that are both close and far away from home. In the third photo, the trumpeter swan has a red head due to the iron-rich water.

Rink Foto & Bryan R. Monte – Photos of Harold Norse

Harold Norse was a seminal figure in San Francisco’s poetry scene from the early 1970s to his death in 2009. In New York in the 1940s he befriended W.H. Auden and William Carlos Williams. In the 1950s, he lived for five years in Italy. In the early 1960s, he worked with Allen Ginsberg and William Burroughs on his “cut-up” technique in Paris. He became engaged in the gay liberation scene in the late ’60s and early ’70s when he moved to San Francisco.

Norse’s most important books include Carnivorous Saints: Gay Poems 1941-1976 (Gay Sunshine Press, 1977), Beat Hotel, (Atticus Press, 1983), Memoirs of a Bastard Angel (William Morrow, 1989) and collected poems, In the Hub of the Fiery Force, Collected Poems of Harold Norse 1934-2003, (Thunder’s Mouth Press, 2003).

Below are photos by Rink Foto and Bryan R. Monte which captured Norse in San Francisco at cafes and readings during the ’70 & ’80s.

Dianne Kellogg – Gothic/Romantic Photographs

Gothic/Romantic Photographs

Dianne Kellogg is an Ohio native who married a “country boy.” She has spent the last forty-eight years in Ohio’s rural northeast snowbelt. Her photographic philosophy can be summarised as follows: “‘The best camera is the one you have with you,’ and now that the world is armed with smart phones, photography has exploded. I stop my car and pull over on a regular basis – what used to be the shot that got away is now recorded! I am always looking for great contrast, a leading line that moves the eye, balance or more exactly “off balance” and enough negative space to make it interesting.”

Photos of San Francisco
by Rink

Rink has photographed San Francisco’s LGBT community for over 44 years. His photos have been published in more than 40 books and appeared in more than a dozen films including Academy Award winners Milk, The Times of Harvey Milk and Common Threads in addition to The Castro, which won a Peabody Award.

Less well-known but just as important as his work with the LGBT community are Rink’s photographs of the landscapes and the other people that make San Francisco so distinctive.
