In conjunction with the organization of HCP’s 25th Anniversary year and a large-scale remodeling project including the construction of a Learning Center, HCP is proud to announce two new staff members.
Madeline Yale relocated to Houston from Portland, Maine to take the position as Program Director. She previously managed the Photographic Estate of American photographer Todd Webb (1905-2000) who was protégé of Stieglitz and is renowned for his images of Paris, New York, and Georgia O’Keeffe, some of which are in the permanent collection at MFAH. Ms. Yale has a post-graduate certificate from Sotheby’s in London, and a MA in Photographic Studies with Distinction from the Norwich School of Art & Design, England, where she also taught history of photography and photographic theory. Madeline has curated several exhibitions in the US, UK and Italy as a graduate student. She oversees the Exhibitions at HCP, and is embarking on a curatorial project with the Exhibitions Committee to celebrate HCP’s 25th Anniversary.
Rachel Hewlett is HCP’s new Education Coordinator. A professional photographer, Ms. Hewlett has a BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute, specializing in photography. She has been volunteering at HCP for over a year, serving as HCP’s Outreach Coordinator. Ms. Hewlett is overseeing the development and programming of HCP’s new Learning Center, which will include a studio space for critiques and classes, a digital medial lab, and a library with over 2,000 volumes. Ms. Hewlett is organizing HCP’s outreach exhibitions Collaborations III featuring the work of four area high school photography programs, and Picture This! highlighting photographs by patients of the Children’s Cancer Hospital at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.
