Selection Process is Complete

Selection Process is Complete

July 31st, 2010  |  Published in News

Curator David Houston has made his final selection of images for the exhibit.

The jury process was completed during the NPPA Convergence in Charleston, SC on July 10, 2010 . The panel consisted of Tom Kennedy, Ron Londen, Tim Rasumussen and Bruce Strong who volunteered their time to judge a total of 594 entries from 87 photographers from around the world.

Those photographs were then forwarded to David at the Ogden who completed his selection of images for the show this week.   His selections are now being sent to Canon for printing.

For clarification,  this was not a contest, it is a juried exhibit. There were no winners per se. This was a juried process to find the best images to tell the story of what happened five years ago. One observer described the jury panel process as, “more like watching a story being edited than watching a contest being judged.”

That being said, we know everyone is anxious to know if  whose photos were be selected for the exhibit, so here is the list of the photographers whose work was selected by the jury and curator for inclusion in the show:

About The Project

When photographers converged on the convention center in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, a survivor cried out, "Thank God, the press is here.”

Her words expressed a sentiment that characterizes the storytelling and relationships between the people of the Gulf Coast and the media that developed in the months that followed.

On Thursday, August 19, a juried exhibit of Katrina imagery opened at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art coinciding with the 5-year anniversary of the disaster.

The exhibit, and a program of workshops and seminars explore the past, present and future of visual storytelling of Gulf Coast disasters.
