Meri has been a photojournalist for 21 years. She currently works at the San Jose Mercury News. Over the course of a year she tried to show the faces of domestic violence: victims living in fear, batterers who rarely serve time in jail, a strained criminal justice system lacking the resources to keep victims safe, and a growing corps of advocates working to solve the problems.

Past exhibitors include: Eric Risberg, Russell Yip, Tom Gallagher, Bob Larson, Fred Larson, Karl Mondon, Jean Dixon, Michael Zagaris, Dino Vournas, Arleen Ng, Joe Gosen, Jim Gensheimer and Jose Luis Villegas.

To visit the Gallery please go to: and click on the Guest Gallery link. This will take you to the Gallery index page where you can link to Meri's Gallery as well as all of the above mentioned selections.

- Jim McNay has joined the faculty of Brooks Institute permanently to lead their new photojournalism program. McNay, the long-time photojournalism instructor at San Jose State University, had been on a leave of absence for a year to tech at the Santa Barbara based photography institution. "It is rare that one gets the chance not only to design a new course of study, but to help launch and lead that program as it gets underway," McNay said in a letter to colleagues. "Whatever happens, I feel I have to see if we can make something special of a program that can be developed with the unique capabilities available at Brooks Institute."

- Paul F. Gero is currently on the DL (disabled list) with a broken elbow suffered a couple of weeks ago in a biking accident. Paul is a staffer at the Arizona Republic and the Sports Shooter staff extends a big "get well quick" to this all-around good guy.
