Local ASMP Board and members met at Anita’s studio, to hear her about her story and her latest projects. Since the pandemic, Anita has focused on reaching people through her portraits, which led to her publishing two books. “Porchraits”, which focused on Pittsburgh’s outside their homes during the early part of the pandemic. And “Waiting in the Wings”, a beautiful compilation of local dancers, whose careers have been drastically affected by the hold on entertainment the past two years.
We also spoke about licensing and copyright, and how local photographers are being taken advantage of by companies who steal their work for advertising, without permission.
