(This was sent out in the Black Art in America newsletter (and the picture appears a little stretched), but the amazing Dr. Cooks also recently received tenure at the University of California, Irvine. Congrats, Bridget!)

  • CARLAGIRL PHOTO was founded on 14 February 1999 by Carla Willliams, a photographer, writer, and editor, born, raised and heading back to (yea!) Los Angeles, California.
