New Orleans! Reading, and Portfolio Reviews

News this week from, and about, NEW ORLEANS

Jennifer Shaw from New Orleans Photo Alliance to say registration for PhotoNola 3 will open to all on August 15th, and that the reviewer invitations are complete and posted on the PhotoNola event blog. I can’t wait to be back in New Orleans, and applaud NOPA for bringing such a diverse group of reviewers together for this weekend-long portfolio review event. Portfolio Reviews will take place Dec 6 & 7 at the International House Hotel. Registration will open on August 15, and be filled on a first come first served basis. Check the PhotoNOLA website in the next few weeks for more information. Bring yourselves and your work to PhotoNola!

And today Aric Meyer wrote to tell me “My paper, “Aesthetics of Catastrophe,” in which discuss the aesthetic dimensions of visually depicting the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and some of their political implications, is in the current issue of Public Culture (Duke University.)” Click on the above link to read an excerpt. Regaring his photographs of New Orleans, Meyer shares that ” My objective was (and continues to be) not only to present the images of the storm’s aftermath, but to critique our reception and expectations of them as well.”
