S1E2 - Mckensi and Patrick, 2021
Episode Notes I met Mckensi and Patrick one summer day in 2021 at Horsebarn Hill, a favorite destination in the small town in Northeastern Connecticut where I live. They were sitting, watching the sun set in the tall grass that would soon be hay for the cows grazing yards away. I asked them if I could photograph them; they agreed and then I asked if I could interview them. Before I pressed record, Mckensi and Patrick told me that they were just winding up a road trip from New York to Madison, Wisconsin and back. Mckensi explained that she had been studying acting, and all of her classes were still happening over zoom. What you will hear is something of a time capsule, the words and the voices of two people who’ve been experiencing this pandemic like the rest of us. I appreciate that they hit the road to get back to something more real. To me there’s no greater therapy than driving 1000 miles. Music: Blue Boy by Ken CormierThe Vessel Written by Mckensi Scy and performed by BloodfishThe Altitude Written by Patrick Dempsey and performed by Bloodfish Script editing assistance from Tina Chiappetta-Miller and Tanya Workman To see the picture of Mckensi and Patrick and to hear more of their music, visit photophonica.com!

For the inaugural episode, I chose a photograph from 2016 that I made of my friend Russ Darling, who I photographed as he was rebuilding a stone wall on a historic property in our small town in northeastern Connecticut. Russ is a Vietnam Era Veteran who has worn many hats over his life: Poet, Artist, former School Bus driver and most recently, Stone Mason. Music: *Nord-ovest - Written by Lillo Morreale and performed by Antarte *Blue Boy, Bass Instrumental, Crazy Hunger (end credits) all written and performed by Ken Cormier. Notes: *Russ Darling was recorded in April 2018. *This episode of PhotoPhonica was produced by Greg Miller in January 2022. *I am so grateful for script editing assistance from my wife Tina Chiappetta-Miller and my daughter Gioia Miller *I received special audio help and general encouragement from Tanya Workman, Ken Cormier, Michael Chovan-Dalton and Dan Pilver. *The name PhotoPhonica was the brainchild of Richard Kraft. *Special thanks to Nicole Werbeck at NPR who gave me the first assignment that combined pictures and audio and started this idea down it’s path. *To see my photograph of Russ, a picture of the finished wall and some bonus audio of Russ reading one of his poems visit photophonica.com.
