Framed Photos Back from the Vatican

These two framed pieces were returned to Ely in January 2013 after being on display at The Vatican since 2010. They were displayed in public areas within the diplomatic residence of Dr. Miguel Humberto Diaz, U.S. Ambassador to the Holy See, as part of the ART in Embassies Program with the U.S. Department of State.  Prior to his time in Rome, Ambassador Diaz was a professor of theology at the College of St. Benedict and Saint John's University in Collegeville, Minnesota. He was familiar with Jim’s work, and when given the opportunity through ART in Embassies, requested these two images. We are honored to have been part of the ART in Embassies Program.

These pieces are now on display in the Ely Brandenburg Gallery and will be up through the winter.

  1. This flowers photo is one of my favorite of your photos. So beautiful ...
    I don't think you remember me, I met you and your wife Judy about 20 years ago. You came to Tokyo, Japan for your exhibition , I was working at a photo agency. You were so nice and great people and very kind to me even I was one of the staff of agency. I never forget about it. Also I never forget about your eyes. Those were so clear, thoughtful and beautiful . I could see you are a special person from your eyes.
    I was 20's at that time, now I am a mother of 3 kids. Time is fast. I read articles of Hidehiro Otake by chance. I was thinking of you and I found this blog. I will visit here often.
    All the best
