My new Sony RX100 lens failed today! After only 5 weeks, the iris that covers the lens failed to fully open, my camera store said it was the third one they had seen with that problem. For a $800 point and shoot you'd expect a little better build than that.

Stan Strembicki: Artist/Educator
Introduction

Stan Strembicki was born in Providence, R.I. in 1952. He attended the University of Rhode Island as a theater student and only took photo as he thought it would be easier than drawing. In this course of this dodge, he met Bart Parker, the photo professor who would become a life long inspiration and mentor. He transferred to the Art department and received his BFA in Photography and Studio Art in 1975. This turn of events has always reminded Strembicki that at any point in your life, you can meet that one person who can make a pivotal difference in your life.

In 1975 he moved to Southern California where he attended the California Institute of the Arts and received his MFA in Photography in 1977. In the fall of 1977 he moved back to the Northeast and taught at Southern Conn. State University and the University of New Haven till 1982. In 1982 he accepted a position as area head of photography at the School of Art at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. He is currently a Professor of Art and Senior Faculty at the School of Art where he teaches classes on the undergraduate and graduate level in photography. He has served as Director of Graduate Studies and Assistant Dean of Students in the School of Art and is currently the area coordinator of the undergraduate photography program. He founded the schools study abroad program in Italy and has taught photography workshops in Florence since 1990.

His work is exhibited widely in the USA and Europe, and is part of major collections and museums in the Midwest and southern United States. He has a long history with the city of New Orleans, having first visited the city in 1984. He has photographed the last 23 Mardi Gras events in New Orleans and in 1996 & 2010 lived in the French Quarter during a sabbatical leave. His work in Post Katrina New Orleans began 30 days after the hurricane hit the city and continues to this day.

He currently lives in St. Louis with his wife of 39 years Rosemary and his German shepherd dog Walker. He has a weakness for Swedish steel, German glass and dark Italian chocolate.
