Artist Talk by Shelby Lee Adams: Salt & Truth
Friday, November 30, 2012, 7:00-8:30 pm

Free and open to the public.

“For more than thirty-five years, Shelby Lee Adams has been making powerful and honest photographs of the hollow dwellers of eastern Kentucky. These images described by Adams as “collaborations” come from mutual trust and respect between the photographer and his subjects.

Adams was born and raised in Hazard, Kentucky. His insider knowledge and connection to the people and culture of that region is reflected in his compassionate photographs that expose the depth and character of a disappearing lifestyle. ”

September 5th: Registration OPENS for the 2012 PhotoNOLA Portfolio Reviews

PhotoNOLA:  The 7th Annual Festival of Photography in New Orleans takes place November 29th – December 2nd, 2012.

Educational offerings: November 29 & 30



Portfolio Review Registration Opens Wednesday, September 5, 2012 at 10:00 am CDT


Review registration is limited to 65 photographers and is first come, first served.  A waiting list will be started once those slots are filled.  The registration fee is $475 which is paid at the time of registration.  Last year one-half of the spaces were booked on the first day of registration.

To see this year’s list of reviewers, click here.

Two days of educational offerings will be held on November 29th (Aline Smithson, and Lori Waselchuk) and November 30th (Sasha Wolf, and myself); details to be posted on www.photonola.org soon.

This 100% volunteer event is hosted by the New Orleans Photo Alliance, and is one of my favorite events of the year.  The combination of portfolio reviews, educational offerings and exhibitions, combined with the relatively intimate scale (and of course it’s in NEW ORLEANS!) make for a memorable experience for all involved.  Consider coming early for the continuing education offerings and attend the kickoff PhotoGALA, and stay late to have more time in one of the world’s great cities.  I hope to see you there!   – MVS
