Every year since 2018 we’ve hosted an end-of-summer picture show where we invite all our friends to get together and give slideshows about their summer. It’s one of our favorite rituals, and while we stop short of formal paper invitations, we put a lot of care into the events. In 2021 we even did a three-city tour.
The inaugural, 2018 event, hosted in the Somerville Theatre’s Microcinema. A candid photo of the crowd Ivan took to include in his own presentation that year which closed the event.
2019, again at Somerville Theatre. Ivan playing live music to accompany his photos of a trip to Iceland.
2020. We of course pivoted to Zoom. Much smaller crowd.
2021 in Denver. Our neighbor Auggie presenting about his fire-fighting summer.
2021 in Boston (technically Cambridge). Hosted outside to accomodate the culture of caution.
2021 in NYC. Hosted outside because our friend Steve had an amazing rooftop.
2022, again at our place in Denver.
