RE: George Eastman House grant

	Deborah's suggestion is the best...go to the Visual Studies
Workshop.  As well as teaching many other photographic disciplines the VSW
is the home of the Laboratorium which specializes in Alt Photo Processes.
I don't really have any other contacts there any more...I was going to ask
at the VSW.

Maybe I'll send my husband to the Zen center and whoop it up by myself at 
the library--can I drink beer in there? Seriously, the grant is pretty 
specific on "unallowable" expenses...hopefully latte's will be allowable. 
Oh yes, there is a $36 only per diem for food, too.

I would be very interested, if you have connections there still, to find out

how much alt is going on. Thank you for the offer!
