Documentary photo slideshow & party at NOPA Gallery April 14

Momenta Workshops, a Washington DC-based photojournalism and social documentary photography organization, is inviting anyone with an interest in photography or the work of local nonprofits to a slideshow and party presented in connection with its Project New Orleans 2012. The event will begin at 7 p.m. on Saturday, April 14 at the NOPA Gallery.

A cocktails and conversations hour will kick off the event, with the slideshow set to begin at the gallery at 8 p.m. The NOPA gallery is located at 1111 St. Mary St. in,  the Crescent City’s Lower Garden District.

The slideshow and party is formally billed as a celebration of the work of New Orleans nonprofits. It will feature the work of students of its Project New Orleans workshop, which is aimed at assisting photographers interested in documenting the work of nonprofits, communities and others involved in the city’s post-Katrina recovery.

The organization’s New Orleans workshop (classes are now full) begins Wednesday, April 11, at the NOPA gallery, with final lectures set for the afternoon of Sunday, April 15.
