Rita and Ike Hurricane Photographs Chosen for International Exhibit

Later this fall and winter, the 12 12 Gallery in Richmond, Virginia will display two photographs that depict the horrors of hurricanes Rita (2005) and Ike (2008) in the 2011 International Juried Photographic Exhibition.  Juror Amalia Pizzardi selected Grave Exhumed by Hurricane Rita, 2008, a photograph made near Grand Chenier, Louisiana, and Port Bolivar Community Cemetery, 2008, a photo from my award-winning series Hurricane Ike: Images from the Debris Field

12 12 Gallery has also posted an online gallery of the exhibit.

Also this month, Port Bolivar Community Cemetery, 2008 will be on display in Portland, Oregon at the Newspace Center for Photography in their 3rd Annual Members’ Showcase exhibit (October 7-30).
