Theo 1969

Ardath Weaver contacted me a few weeks ago after hearing about Glenda Wharton's Theo Westenberger Women of Excellence Award. She had known Theo as a teenager at the beginning of her photographic life. Here are some photos and a testimonial:

Today I learned that North Carolina filmmaker Glenda Wharton had received the Theo Westenberger Award for Extraordinary Achievement By Women in the Arts and I was reminded when I saw her name that I had been meaning to try to reconnect.

I had recently been looking at snapshots we took in 1969 - the summer we went to Europe instead of Woodstock. We were in a Sarah Lawrence College summer study program in Paris followed by a Greek island cruise - studying art with Barbara Rose. I recall Theo as dramatic and stylish and never without her camera.
