Historically, the cover of Society has always been painted art. I have decided to step outside of that box and include photographic portraiture, recognizing it as a fine art creation.
Perhaps the biggest struggle photography has faced historically as a medium is to be taken seriously as an art form. In the last few decades, results in auctions certainly rival traditional art forms. But art should not only be determined by whether someone is willing to pay for it. The value of art is in the artist's uniqueness in interpretation. What pioneering photographers like Louis Daguerre recognized was that photographs, like paintings, are artificially constructed portrayals: they too have to be carefully composed, lit and produced.
The cover of this issue, created by Kitti McMeel in her studio, is called "The Performance" and depicts a beautiful young dancer in all her grace and beauty.
The last few weeks of 2016 has certainly been challenging; in our world, our country, our county and our community. There have been personal losses to friends near and dear to me. As we enter this holiday season, I send the bright light of love and hope to you all as you celebrate the season with your loved ones.
