Announcing PLAY.SPACE

I have barely caught my breath from last year’s Summer Festival and here it comes again! But truly, not a moment too soon — we’re ready for warm summer breezes, and more than ready for hangin’ out with fellow Townies at Ingalls Mall. And this year’s Festival line-up has us...

Sweetwaters Makes the World Sweeter — and Smaller

I’ve got another show at Sweetwaters (on W. Washington). Hooray! It includes portraits I’ve taken of children and high-school seniors living in the Ann Arbor area. Perhaps you’ll recognize one of your friends or neighbors, or even yourself. I even brought back a few pieces from my first Sweetwaters show...

STOP.MOTION at Café Zola — extended to March 1

There’s still time to catch a glimpse of summer at Café Zola. My Summer Festival exhibit of large-scale (4x6 feet) photographs will be up till February 1 March 1. In addition to the NOMO piece, the exhibited images feature My Dear Disco, Hullabaloo, and a bounty of joyful faces (and...

Announcing: STOP.MOTION

The Ann Arbor Summer Festival is right around the corner (it starts this Friday, and the weather forecast for the opening weekend looks amazing), and so is my 3rd big Summer Festival photography exhibit in the Power Center lobby. The exhibit is entitled STOP.MOTION, and features a new set of...

RE.FRESH at Café Zola

This blog entry is a wee bit overdue, as the RE.FRESH exhibit has been up at Café Zola since December 1. Hopefully, you will still have the chance to see the show before it comes down on February 1 March 1 (extended!). Especially if you’re in need of a quick...

Fashion Shoot: Elephant Ears in Kerrytown (Fall 2009)

For this fall’s Elephant Ears fashion shoot, we really wanted to take the action outdoors — and, amazingly enough, the weather obliged. We gathered up a smaller posse of kids than usual, and carpe’d the diem one gorgeous morning in early September. The whole shoot was a breath of fresh...

Announcing: RE.FRESH

The Ann Arbor Summer Festival is right around the corner (starts next Friday), and so is my 2nd big Summer Festival photography exhibit in the Power Center lobby. The exhibit is entitled RE.FRESH, and features a new set of images taken at last year’s Top of the Park. The exhibit...

Kerrytown Motherfest 2009

Motherfest was once again a great success. Thanks to all you brave souls who weathered unseasonably chilly temps and gale-force winds to have your portrait taken by me. (Rico, who was assisting me during the shoot, wants to especially thank Giri (Minister of Wine) for literally giving him the sweatshirt...

From Concentrate

I want to thank Concentrate for a very generous feature about my photography work. I love the intro blurb: If Ann Arbor has a community photographer it’s Myra Klarman. Not because she takes wonderfully vibrant snaps of kids and families (she does). Or because she’s the official photographer for A2’s Summer...

Kerrytown Motherfest 2009 — This Saturday

Come find me at the Ann Arbor Farmers’ Market this Saturday (May 9) 10am–1pm. I’ll be taking candid portraits of moms (with their kids and/or with their moms). On May 30, prints will be posted on the 2nd floor of Kerrytown Market & Shops — free for the taking! A full...

Fashion Shoot: Elephant Ears in Kerrytown (Spring 2009)

Warning: this page contains some serious cuteness! Don’t be alarmed if you experience warm fuzzies or an irresistible urge to swoon. It’s completely normal. As you can see, the fourth semiannual Elephant Ears fashion shoot was a runaway success. My thanks to all the families for making it happen. You can view...

Happy 2009!

Strange Fruit Served at Café Zola!

Myra Klarman Photography Exhibit at Café Zola in Ann Arbor, Michigan
On large format photographs, that is! If you missed my show at the Power Center this past summer, or if the cold weather’s just got you jonesing for the Summer Festival, come check it out. Plus, Café Zola has really, really good food and drinks. It’s a regular date-night spot...

Fashion Shoot: Elephant Ears in Kerrytown (Fall 2008)

What do you do when you’ve scheduled 10 adorable kids for a September fashion shoot in the picturesque alleyways of downtown Ann Arbor, and it’s pouring rain? You duck inside and run up the stairs to my studio — conveniently located just above Mongolian Barbeque on Main Street. Fortunately, the weather...

Ice Dancing Champs Visit Ann Arbor

Tessa Virtue and Scott MoirTessa Virtue and Scott MoirTessa Virtue and Scott MoirTessa Virtue and Scott MoirTessa Virtue and Scott Moir
Last week, I had the good fortune to photograph a pair of young, talented, and accomplished athletes named Tessa and Scott. What’s wild is that I had no idea of just how talented and accomplished they were (because busy me couldn’t find all of 30 seconds to Google them). Also,...

outside.IN: Artist Reception

Last night’s reception was fantastic! Just having my images exhibited is a thrill, but having an artist reception? It blew my mind. I was literally speechless after Robb Woulfe’s beautiful recounting of how I started working with the Ann Arbor Summer Festival and of his reactions to my photographs. If...

Announcing: outside.IN

When Robb Woulfe, the executive director of the Ann Arbor Summer Festival, approached me about displaying some of my Festival images in the Power Center lobby, my exact response was “Are you kidding me?” When I was running around photographing last year’s Festival, I figured the images would be used...

Kerrytown Motherfest 2008

The weather was perfect, the light was glorious, and I got to meet (and photograph) 68 cool moms who came to the Farmers’ Market. Prints will be posted on the 2nd floor of Kerrytown by Saturday, May 31; and they’re free — free, I say! — for the taking. And don’t...

Fashion Shoot: Elephant Ears in Kerrytown (Spring 2008)

The second Elephant Ears fashion shoot was a great success. Many thanks to all the families who participated. This is turning into a nice little tradition (see last season’s shoot). You can see these beautiful faces (and adorable children’s clothing) on display at Elephant Ears, located on the 2nd floor of...

Mice + Bears + Frogs! Oy Veh!

A month and a half ago — yes, I’m tardy! — Shana Victor and I set up another studio session to get some new product shots onto Shana Logic. This time, we invited sisters Monica and Meghan to come model. The results are elegantly summarized by the following inequality: Beautiful Girls + Cute Hats > Adorable. Portrait...

Street Smart

I know that many seniors dig urban portraits. But last summer I photographed this 2.5-year-old girl, who was absolutely giddy about having her pictures done city-style. The results were amazing! Needless to say, this year I’ll be shooting people of all ages in downtown Ann Arbor. With my camera,...

Auspicious Beginnings

I love telling people about how my photographic career got started. It’s a “follow your bliss” kinda story, and it all started with the Burns Park Players’ production of Brigadoon in 2005. I had been a graphic designer for 18 years, and had spent the latter half of those years in...

Happy 2008!

Finally Coming Up for Air

Happy Holidays! You can probably guess that the absence of a Relish entry for over a month had something to do with my (harried) fixation on getting orders done in time for the holidays. Let me tell you, I’m delighted to be writing again. 2007 was a monumental year for Myra Klarman...

Paging Hanukkah Harry

Looking for an arty and hip gift for the young person on your holiday shopping list? Not something mass produced or that requires you to go anywhere near the mall? But something made in a limited edition, and easily obtained with a mouse-click? There’s no need to fear! Shana Logic is...

Portraits on Display at Kerrytown

If you’d like to see samples of my portrait work up-close, take a tour of Kerrytown Market & Shops. I have displays on the 1st and 2nd floors, and along all three stairways. Many people ask to see samples of the modern gallery-wrapped canvases — these are hung upstairs, across from...

There’s No Place Like Red Shoes

I am so grateful about this new development: Myra Klarman Photography clients will now be able to pick up their portrait orders at Red Shoes Home Goods. My heartfelt thanks to Catherine Thursby, owner of Red Shoes, for agreeing to try out this arrangement. I see this as such a win/win/win/win...

Fashion Shoot: Elephant Ears in Kerrytown (Fall 2007)

A couple of Wednesdays ago, a market day, I photographed a few of my favorite models wearing the latest in adorable fall fashion from Elephant Ears (formerly Keedo) located in Kerrytown. These kids were real troopers, especially the first group who modeled fall clothing in the summer heat. Even though we...

Portraiture Show at Sweetwaters

My first show! I displayed 23 portraits of children, high school seniors, and captures of the Burns Park Players and Pioneer Theatre Guild at Sweetwaters on W. Washington during the months of May, June, and July in 2007. It’s unusual for an artist to get to display at the café for...

Kerrytown Motherfest 2007

Kerrytown offered a special Mother’s Day gift: candid portraits taken by me! I roved around the market, camera in hand, for 3 hours in search of moms with kids — they were plentiful! The weather was perfect, and the light at the Farmers’ Market was unbeatable. (Looking for a colorful...
