In this episode I sit down with Sally Canzoneri an artist and Gallery President of Washington Printmakers Gallery. We talk about her work and practice and as well asWashington Printmakers Gallery. Here’s Sally’s Bio from her web site:Sally Canzoneri is a photographer, book artist, and freelance writer. Her work in digital photography grew out her interest in developing images for her artist’s books. As a result, she looked at photography as tool for creating graphic images beyond those that are traditionally considered “photographs.” Her recent work, in particular, has a more pictorial than photographic look to it.
