Thanks for sharing this Alicia. I've heard about Jim's work previously and it's great to see that an exibit is being held...just wish it was a little bit closer to me. There's a good chance I will be swinging through Milwaukee on business in June and if I can swing it, I will definitely drop by Hanson Dodge Creative.

I thought the images were great too. I'm glad you guys enjoyed them too. It was nice to be able to see a selection of Herrington's portraits on flickr, since most of us can't make it to Milwaukee.

There will be a book form eventually though.
