Our Wonderful SideDish Photographer, Desiree Espada, Wins DMA 2012 Award

Forgive me, forgive me. I am four days late with this news that I have known about for awhile. One of our SideDish photographers, Desiree Espada, is one of 10 recipients selected for the Dallas Museum of Art’s 2012 Awards to Artists. You have seen her work all over our blog (like here and here), but outside of SideDish, she also does some amazing collaborative work with her friend Kasumi Chow. The DMA recently announced on its website the winners, and the Observer picked up the story including some quotes from Desiree. I just have to share because I know Desiree is too humble to make a big deal out of this, but Nancy and I couldn’t be more proud!


  • Carol & Nancy, You are TOO kind! Thank you both for your ongoing support!! It means the world to me.



  • You’re a peach. And I’m glad you’re our peach!

  • Jose Marti

    I am so happy for you, Desiree! I knew you could make it as a professional photographer! You continue to impress me still! Just keep doing what you are doing. The world will take notice.

  • Congratulations Desiree!
