Production Narrative

by J. Gelles

I was awarded a $5000 fellowship from the Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation and $5000 from the Independence Foundation “Fellowship in the Arts Grant” for a month long residency at the VSW to work with Joan to complete Florida Family Portrait. During my first week at the workshop I received a telephone call from my son David who was working at NBC in New York City at the time. There was a strong possibility he had been exposed to Anthrax and the workers had been instructed not to leave the building. Needless to say I immediately left Rochester to see my son. He had been in the mail room where that fateful letter had been delivered to Tom Brokaw. After a few days it was determined that he was not exposed, but it was quite a scare. Joan [Lyons] was extremely helpful in planning the layout for the book, and working with me on the printing process. I couldn't have completed this without her. I chose Oddi printers in Iceland, and spent a wonderful week in Reykjavik.
