Photography by John Goyer


John has been involved in photography since the days of film and manual focusing. He free-lanced for an upstate NY paper in grad school and much more recently was the President of the Northern California Council of Camera Clubs. He judges photo competitions in California and spends his days working as a physicist – hence the ties to Albuquerque through Sandia Labs. He enjoys green chile and spending time visiting with his model and photographer friends in the land of enchantment where he has a home/studio on the west side.

Uproot by Yoana Tosheva

color pencil and nu pastel on paper

This is a piece that speaks to the nomadic nature in which my life has proceeded and how difficult change still is for me. Since moving to the United States at seven years old from Bulgaria I have pretty steadily been moving around and words such as “home” or “consistency” carry weight only in regards to their absence for me. This is a testament to how everything changes without your consent, even you. 


Yoana Tosheva is a third year student at Loyola University Chicago, pursuing a degree in Art History and English. She runs a blog about music which you can read at collectivecadence.home.blog. Her creative work has also been published in Diminuendo, a literary magazine at Loyola.
