An alumnus of Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, Dan Kainen is at home in such diverse fields as fabric screen printing, electro-optic and laser systems design, and commercial lighting design and manufacturing. His art has been exhibited in the Ronald Feldman Gallery in Soho, among other New York galleries and private collections, and his lighting designs have been marketed nationwide. In the 1980s Kainen started experimenting with holography, and then with integrated images. This led to three patents in that field, the latest of which is the basis for the Photicular™ books, SAFARI AND OCEAN. Now from Dan Kainen a new Photicular book: POLAR, that takes readers on a stunning journey to the remote, mysterious, and severe Arctic and Antarctic.
David Good is a Yanomami-American, his mother a Yanomami residing in the Amazon Rainforest of southeastern Venezuela. His father, Kenneth Good, is an American anthropologist whom studied the Yanomami people for decades, which is where he met David’s mom. Their family’s history has been televised in National Geographic and written about in People Magazine, New York Times, and the London Times. Now David tells his own story in his fascinating new memoir, THE WAY AROUND, FINDING MY MOTHER & MYSELF AMONG THE YANOMAMI a story of self-discovery, of being of two worlds, growing up in New Jersey, his mother’s abandonment and return to her tribe in the Amazon when he was six, the heavy toll that took on his childhood and the near-fatal car accident that gave him a purpose: to find a way back to his mom. Good is the founder and executive director of The Good Project, a nonprofit service organization dedicated to the education, health care, and preservation of indigenous groups in South and Central America.
