Post-Katrina photography featured in Seattle exhibit

New Orleans Photo Alliance member and PhotoNOLA coordinator Jennifer Shaw is one of three photographers whose work on survival, hope, and rebuilding in the wake of disaster is part of an exhibit, “The Dust Never Settles,” now showing at Photo Center NW gallery in Seattle.

A reception for the artists is set for Friday, May 6, from 6 to 9 p.m. The exhibit, which began on April 22, will run through May 29.

Other photographers with work in the exhibit include Dave Anderson, who documented the rebuilding of the Crescent City’s Holy Cross neighborhood in his book “One Block: A New Orleans Neighborhood Rebuilds.” Photos from Wyatt Gallery, a documentary photographer who produced work on post-Katrina New Orleans, post-earthquake Haiti, will also be shown.

Shaw, meanwhile, will lead a seminar on portfolio preparation at the Photo Center on Sunday, May 8, from 12 to 3 p.m. Tuition is $85.

For more information on these events, you may call the Photo Center at (206) 720-7222 (extension 10 for the Shaw seminar) or see the organization’s website.
