Hollis Jennings, a deceivingly frail thirty one year old from Kentucky has been fishing in Alaska for almost ten years. From her very first fishing trip she knew that one day she would want to own her own boat. Ambitious and determined, she worked her way up to a captain for the first six years while building strong friendships and making essential connections in the salmon seining fleet. Four years ago she was finally able to take on a loan and purchase her own boat which she named after her two younger sisters Natalie and Gail. While women on fishing boats are no longer a rarity, there are still very few who dare to take on a career of the captain – for buying a boat and a fishing license is no small investment and a lifelong commitment. The hardest thing for a skipper each season is to assemble a great team of fishermen who will be ready to push personal limits and work in harmony with each other. There was a stellar team of four women and two men on Natalie Gail at the time of my arrival: Hollis, Billy, Ashley, Susanna, Ricky and Feodor (according to the locals it was the first time ever women outnumbered men on a fishing boat). I spent three days on Natalie Gail, where I witnessed the backbreaking labor of fishermen first hand. Twenty hour work days past the point of exhaustion in wet environment, often in bad weather and harsh waters, with jellyfish constantly burning the eyes and the face – the job is not for the faint of heart. On the other hand, swayed by the striking natural beauty of Alaska, the simplicity of life, and the sense of personal challenge many people stay on the boat for a lifetime

Bartholomew Bland, the deputy director of theHudson River Museum, was enthralled by the challenge of curating a show about the sin of envy.
“Envy is the subtlest and also the most corrosive of the sins,” he said. “It is often expressed under the cloak of something else. Envy is the hidden sin.
In many ways, it’s the least visual.”
Nevertheless, the resulting exhibition, “Envy, One Sin, Seven Stories: Adrien Broom,” is highly visual, interweaving images of desire, vengeance and gore.
The show fills three galleries with 58 large-scale digital color prints, three reproductions of stage sets used to shoot some of the photographs, and installations
that depict characters and scenarios from classic fairy tales whose plots are driven by envy.
All of the work was created for the exhibition by Ms. Broom, a multimedia artist based in Brooklyn, who described herself as a storyteller.
“Envy, One Sin, Seven Stories” highlights the impact of the sin in six other fairy tales as well, including “Cinderella”;“Beauty and the Beast”; “The Singing Bone”; “Sprightly Water, Talking Bird, Singing Tree”;
“The Black Bride and the White One”; and “The Goose Girl.”
