Twins, by Toni Parks (1988) As the daughter of legendary photographer Gordon Parks, Toni Parks grew up in a household where artists and literary giants were regular visitors. Her two brothers, Gordon Parks, Jr. and David Parks, became photographers earlier in life while Toni started her photographic career in her forties. She counts her father as a major influence, as well as her background as a trained composer and musician. During her most prolific years of the 1980s and 90s, Parks took her first assignments covering a theater production on Martin Luther King, Jr., documenting dancers and singers at New York City’s Lincoln Center, and exploring the streets of New York City with her camera in hand. Statues in Central Park, Harlem parade scenes, and everyday depictions of individual or group subjects comprise Parks’ early body of work, often created with the compositional advice of her father in mind.

I had the great pleasure to meet with Tytia Habing at the Filter Photo Festival in Chicago this past October. I was familiar with Tytia’s work, but seeing her stellar prints in person brought the photographs to a whole new level of appreciation. Tytia is…

To Start Things Off, Again

To repeat almost verbatim how I originally started off with a blog over on tumblr that eventually morphed into Wobneb Magazine – new projects are always something that I think about, ask others about, start then stop, then start again, and generally overthink it to death. Well, this time (again) I just want to jump in and give it a try. I have started writing much more than ever before to round out the work I have created, the work I have encountered, and helping others to gain exposure for their work or projects. Wobneb Magazine has brought about working with some fantastic publications and I want to make the magazine richer and more robust. Hopefully this new platform will help make this possible.
Above all – thanks to my wife for her support and her belief in me. I would not be who I am today without her! I Love You, Jodi!
