The WELL Photo Gallery

This page was created in celebration of The WELL’s tenth birthday, in 1995. The black and white photos used to reside in the “trophy case” in The WELL’s main office. All photos are copyright by the photographer, unless otherwise stated. Please contact if you wish to reprint any for a study or article, and we can put you in touch with the photographers. The page design, file naming and alt tags were all created the inimitable Cynsa Bonorris, who along with Anna Couey conceived of the WELL Tales project and page as a birthday present to the WELL community.

Many of these were taken in early years by staff members.

This first set of photos were taken by Matisse Enzer (matisse), while he was the WELL support manager. 

Mr. Maurice Weitman (mo) as general manager.
