loni weholt

I met Loni Weholt in 1994 or 1995. We developed an incredible friendship while she produced jobs for several of my photographers. She would often be gone for months at a time on assignments, but we would always get together upon her return and it was as if no time had passed. Loni is one of the most passionate human beings I have ever met. Passionate about photography, design, life, work, relationships, friendships, Stretch, you name it...
Over the past few years, our paths diverged and we were no longer in as much regular contact. Because we were not as connected on a daily basis, it made it all the more difficult to swallow the intense email I received from Loni detailing her health crisis. In July, Loni was diagnosed with neuroendocrine small cell carcinoma of the cervix and has since undergone extensive chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. There is a very important fundraiser and party for Loni upcoming Thursday, April 8th, and I want to do everything in my power to make sure it is the blockbuster event it should be. There will be a live auction including prints from Nadav Kander, Lauren Greenfield, Hans Gissinger, Lis Von Hoene, Stephen Wilkes and John Midgley to name a few. Please come and support this incredible woman. For more information, go here and to purchase tickets, visit GIUFL.
