Rhonisha Franklin, Washington, DC Member Since October 2011 Artist Statement What's in a name? RDione (pronounced ar-dee-yawn) Foto is named after its principal, Rhonisha D. Franklin. The creative photographer takes great pride in being her father's "namesake" and his initials R.D.F. And having been a professional photographer himself for many years, the name and it's abbreviation just seemed a perfect fit. In 2007 she picked up a Nikon digital SLR camera and has found it hard to put down ever since. Many lovingly now call her a "Nik Chick"!
By 2010 she was selected to photograph venues throughout the United Kingdom. This led to also being selected to cover two concerts in Besançon and Paris, France later that same year.
