In my tenure as the Arts Editor at the Ithaca Times, I found Rachel Philipson to be the most professional, talented and passionate photographer I had ever encountered. She was always brimming with the most creative and lovely ideas, and truly brought a level of depth and imagination to every story she worked on. Rachel has a sweetness and quiet thoughtfulness to her that I really appreciated, and it was always a pleasure to collaborate with her on a story. Her eye for detail, beauty, and composition was definitely a journalistic and personal inspiration.
