Thom Bennett, VP of Programming, has announced the winners of the New Orleans Photo Alliance’s “Four by Five” exhibition. They are:
Michael E. Gordon from California
Euphus Ruth from Mississippi
Laura J. Bennett from Texas
Susanna Gaunt from Michigan
Charles Mintz from Ohio.
In an email sent to all contest applicants, Bennett thanked everyone and mentioned how challenging it was for juror Steve Simmons to make the selections.
“One of the reasons we wanted to have this exhibit was to showcase the creative and varied contemporary work being done with large format view cameras and we were overwhelmed, not only with the number of photographers submitting but, more importantly, with the high quality of work being done,” Bennett said.
The five photographers selected will be part of an exhibition in the New Orleans Photo Alliance gallery in April and May, and will be published in View Camera Magazine.
The exhibit opens Saturday, April 3 and will hang until May 23.
