It has just been announced that Michael Alpert has been named a 2015 NEA National Heritage Fellow, recognizing “the recipients’ artistic excellence and support their continuing contributions to our nation’s traditional arts heritage.”

I am lucky enough to be able to consider Michael Alpert a mentor, teacher, and friend. Over the years, I’ve had the pleasure of photographing him on many occasions. I’m honoured that they chose one of my photos of him for the NEA announcement.
