Beth Block dead in tragic car accident

I don't know whether you met Beth Block in the past years. Beth is no longer with us. She was such a lovely colleague with a great spirit and unforgettable work in photography. We met at FotoFest Houston several years ago and here and there on fairs or in New York. Will miss her.

I received the following note from her family and friends:

"We are deeply shocked and sad to share with you news of Beth's untimely death. She was killed Sunday afternoon, April 20th, 2008 in a tragic car accident while on vacation near Seattle, WA. Beth is survived by her mother, step-father, grandmother, and many, many friends and family, all of whom have been deeply touched and enriched through her life, love, friendship and art. Condolences may be sent to her mother, Charlene Block."

If you want to get in touch with her family please send me an e-mail.

We will be meeting in memory of Beth in New York City on Sunday June 8th 2008 from 2 to 4 pm If you wish more information please send an e-mail to Jamie Sherman.
