About the Book
Features & Details
CONNIE SPRINGER is a freelance writer, photographer, and archivist who moved from the East Coast to Cincinnati 25 years ago searching for Utopia. She has been a writer and photographer for local and national publications including ESL Magazine, TASTE, Citybeat, and Edible Ohio Valley. Springer, who has been awarded and widely published, specializes in human interest themes in her photography-- adoptive families, children, the elderly, and intergenerational and multicultural images. In 2002 she self-published a photo datebook, OUR FAMILIES: A CELEBRATION OF ADOPTION, a project partially funded by a City of Cincinnati Individual Artist’s Grant. Her latest undertaking, interviewing and photographing “lively nonagenarians” (people in their 90s), was also awarded a Cincinnati Individual Artist’s Grant. This book is based on her traveling exhibit, POSITIVELY NINETY: Interviews with Lively Nonagenarians.
