What hangs above your mantel?

I don’t have a mantel. At all. Anywhere. However, I am planning to mount a 4′ x 6′ photograph on my ceiling, in the living room.

What is your favorite building in Utah?

My favorite building in Utah holds hands ”easily” with the dramatic landscape around us. The Cliff’s Lodge, at Snowbird, is my favorite building because as soon as I enter, I go straight to the roof, in my bathing suit, and peer out and down Little Cottonwood Canyon. I feel like I’m at some Swiss chalet, being covered and immersed in magnificent mountain.

What is the most memorable exhibit you’ve seen recently?

I visited the Tate Modern, mid-June, and saw an exhibit entitled “Street & Studio: An Urban History of Photography.” As a documentary photographer, I was immediately drawn to the exhibit. It was filled with pieces from several brilliant artists, capturing street scenes. I still remember an image by Alfred Stieglitz, entitled: “A Snapshot, Paris.”
