Jenny Risher

Mount Clemens native Risher studied at Detroit’s College for Creative Studies and the Parsons School of Design in New York, where she earned a bachelor of fine arts degree in photography. A longtime Hour Detroit contributor, her first photo assignment for the magazine came in 1997, “right out of CCS,” she says. For this month’s issue, Risher photographed fall fashions. “My favorite look from the shoot would have to be the one with the gold Lanvin pants. It’s an unexpected pairing of materials and textures that work together,” she says. Risher is currently working on a book featuring the portraits and words of 50 iconic Detroiters.

 

 

 

 

Dave Lewinski

A Royal Oak-based freelance photographer and regular Hour Detroit contributor, Lewinski captured images for this issue’s arts feature. “My favorite part was going to Bay City and meeting the family of Frederick Klass,” Lewinski says. “His son brought out his camera that he “picked” in Horton Bay, Mich. He’s an 8-year-old picker in the making,” Lewinski says. His least favorite part of the assignment? The “super uncomfortable” heat when he was shooting during July’s heat wave. Lewinski freelances for a variety of clients, including The Smithsonian, the Michigan Municipal League, and the University Musical Society. He recently photographed Kresge Artist Fellows for the University Cultural Center Association.

 

  

 

 

 

Trina Mannino

As a dancer herself, Mannino — a University of Michigan graduate, former Hour Detroit editorial intern, and metro Detroit native who is sometimes a bit homesick — was thrilled to write about the Bad Boys of Dance performances coming to the Detroit Opera House. “It was interesting to learn more about a male company whose dancers come from all different types of backgrounds,” Mannino says. “For ballet and hip-hop dancers to perform identical steps with the same level of virtuosity and skill is really exceptional.” Mannino lives in New York City, where she contributes to a variety of local publications, including The Brooklyn Rail and The Dance Jot. She also dances for Anabella Lenzu/Dance Drama.

 

 

 

 

 

Eve Silberman

“I remember Elly Peterson from my growing-up days in Oak Park,” Silberman says, referring to a new book on Peterson. “Like author Sara Fitzgerald, I, too, was struck by the novelty of a female politician,” she says. “What impressed me in Sara’s biography was Peterson’s decency and down-to-earth quality. She hated the role of big money in politics and she was admired by Democrats, Independents, and moderate Republicans.” A graduate of Duke, Silberman has taught journalism at the University of Michigan and works as an editor and staff writer for the Ann Arbor Observer, where she wrote several pieces on the now-collapsed Borders chain. She was the subject of a half-hour NPR interview about her experiences as a Borders staffer.
