Thanks from the Detroit AAJA Convention

The AAJA Convention in Detroit is now history. Those who attended actually had a great time – better than we thought.

To see some of the fun we had, see www.aajaphoto.org

Thanks to AAJA photographers who contributed a photo(s) to the Silent Auction. We over 60 prints up for auction. The photo auction itself made over $10,000. New York freelance photographer Corky Lee was curator of the photo auction.
