NATURAL DISASTERS…fire, floods, hurricanes happen in other countries….other states…other neighborhoods…..UNTIL it doesn’t… I literally ran out of my home with kitty in tow, at 1:45 AM  Sunday eve as a wall of flames was within 20 yards of my home.  ALL GONE !!!….


one of my neighbor's homes

You cannot begin to know how much the love and support you have sent my way these past few days have meant to me. Your strength has enabled me to continue to put one foot in front  of the other. Many of you have asked what you might do to help. 

SO, with some major pushing from my sister,  here is what I need:

Fortunately, my insurance will cover most of my property loss, my personal property loss as well as temp housing. What it will not cover is the major loss to my business and studio.

I have been a photographer for over 50 years, it has been my life,  and ALL of my photographic equipment, production equipment,  as well as my framed photographic inventory ( 60-70 large framed works) are gone. Whatever you can donate to help me to recover from this major life event would be so greatly appreciated. www.dkohnstudios.com

disclaimer: I am Dennis Kohn, and I am the sole beneficiary of this campaign.  My house on Mark West Springs Rd was totally destroyed by the Tubbs fire in Santa Rosa, CA on Monday, Oct 9, 2017
The funds will be used to rebuild my photogtraphic studio, which will include camera equipment, studio production equipment, and supplies, as well as replace 70 large framed photographic artworks.

A heartfelt THANK YOU to all of my friends, family and the outstanding community of artists where I have lived for so long. I have been humbled by your love, kindness, support and generosity and am convinced I would not be as far along on my road to recovery if not for all of you. Although still homeless, I have been taken in by 2 very good friends while I continue to sort thru chaos and try to figure out what path to travel next.
Best wishes to all for a Very Happy Holiday and my love to you all in 2018.

˜Hope for the moment.ˇ
There are times when it is hard to believe in the future, when we are temporarily just not brave enough. When this happens, concentrate on the present. Cultivate
˜le petit bonheur ˇ ( the little happiness ) until the courage returns. Look forward to the beauty of the next moment, the next hour, the promise of a good meal, sleep, a book, a movie, the likelihood that tonight the stars will shine and tomorrow the sun will shine. Sink roots into the present until the strength grows to think about tomorrow.
