Photo Exhibition by Dan Burkholder on Display Until 12/31/2006

I just came across this captivating series of images. Photographer, author and educator Dan Burkholder has a photography show of his images entitled Shadows of Lives and Loss: Decaying Memories Along the Gulf Coast, photographed in the Gulf Coast region of the US after Hurricane Katrina. The show is on display until December 31, 2006 at Tammy Cromer-Campbell Photographs & Gallery in Longview, TX.


Dan Burkholder’s Gallery of images from the show can be found here. A very interesting online slide show with audio is also available online. Burkholder, Tammy Cromer-Campbell and Roy Flukinger, the Curator of Photography at the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center at the University of Texas at Austin speak about the project and I highly recommend listening. You can find the interview here.

On this page, you can select Dan’s series of images or work by other artists to get more information about their prints. I learned about this show from a great website run by Mary Virgina Swanson. I had an opportunity to attend Ms. Swanson’s lecture during the PhotoPlus Expo in November and I was amazed at the amount of great information she shared with the audience. Here’s a link to the seminar description page from the PhotoPlus Expo website. The seminar was entitled: Presenting your work to the fine-art community.

And here is a link to Dan Burkholder’s website. Dan is a longtime friend, and a fantastic teacher, photographer and printmaker.
