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 Festival. It’s because she seems hellbent on capturing the spunk and soul of the city in projects like her blog, Relish.
I’ve never had an easy time describing what I do — and it’s true, I really don’t like having my picture taken. So I can’t possibly thank writer Leia Menlove and managing photographer David Lewinski enough for how easy they made the whole experience, or for how skillfully and beautifully they portrayed me. I ran into a friend today who was certain that Leia and I must have known each other before she interviewed me for the feature — that’s how well she “got me.”
