Esther Altshul Helfgott is an independent scholar and poet. She holds
a doctorate in History from the University of Washington, has published
extensively and has been teaching writing classes and facilitating workshops
for over 20 years. Shelter, as a practical reality and as a metaphor for
living in community, is at the core of Esther's thinking. She views the
page as a haven, not for the purpose of hiding, but as a means of cultivating
that place within the self that works most effectively to bring about
real and metaphorical shelter - regardless of race, ethnicity, religion,
gender or sexual preference to all who live among us -- the homeless,
the mentally ill, the disabled, the different, the old ... Her book-length
poem, The Homeless One, about homelessness and schizophrenia, will be
published in January 2000 by Kota Press.

He's a 95% self-taught photographer, 12 years after receiving a 35mm camera
for high school graduation. "I've primarily used photography as just another
element in other artworks (illustrations, sculptures, graphics, fanzines)

finer points of the image and experimenting with infrared and recording
films. My current, never ending, photo study is collapsing, and consequently
disappearing, homestead and farm buildings." He makes his base on the
