“Sanctuary,” a group exhibition featuring six New Orleans photographers, will kick off the 37th season at New York’s Soho Photo gallery. Running from September 4 to October 4, 2008, the exhibition will feature the work of Victoria Ryan, Samuel Portera, Lee Area, Eric Paul Julien, Jennifer Shaw and Michel Varisco-all of whom were inspired by the destruction and aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. The 30 images in the exhibition focus on the survival of the landscape, culture, and music of the Southern wetlands.
Gustav permitting, four of the artists will be in attendance for the opening next Thursday night and a Friday evening panel discussion to be moderated by Paul Moakly. Please come by if you’re in the area! For more information click the link below.www.sohophoto.com
