As an homage to my favorite smut magazine, US Weekly, we started doing this segment, 25 Things You Don’t Know About Me. I was started us off, then we featured David & Kendrick (photographers of our current Escape exhibit), and now we are featuring the illustrious David Bram.
Here are a few things you do know about David. He is a fine art photographer and the editor, founder, and curator of Fraction Magazine, an online venue dedicated to fine art photography. He is also one of the three reviewers for our new program, coming to Atlanta May 6-7, Roundtable Review (deadline is March 18).
