Featuring work by: Bryan Meltz

Exhibition: Fri, Sep 10, to Fri, Sep 9 2011

Beginning in September 2010, the Robert W. Woodruff Library at Emory University will feature After: Images from Haiti a rotating exhibition of the latest work from Atlanta-based documentary photographer Bryan Meltz. This exhibition, on view throughout the academic year, will change every three months in order to provide an in-depth study of the ongoing humanitarian crisis in the aftermath of the January 12th earthquake. In March 2010 Bryan spent several weeks in Haiti covering the public health situation in the rural countryside of the Central Plateau and in May began collaborating with NGO’s GIANT Global and Humanity 4 Haitian Development on a 5-year project documenting the rebuilding of Grand Goave, near Port au Prince. The exhibition focuses on the growing nationwide public health crisis, the challenges of rural life in the Central Plateau, and takes a revealing look inside an orphanage in Port au Prince.

: Tue, Oct 5, 6pm - 7pm

Wondrous Transformations: Photographs by Michael A. Smith
Michael C. Carlos Museum
Featuring work by: Michael Smith

Exhibition: Sat, Sep 18, to Sun, Jan 16 2011

Beginning September 18, 2010, the photographs of Michael A. Smith (American, born 1942) will be featured in the John Howett Gallery at the Michael C. Carlos Museum at Emory University. The images, all chosen from the Museum’s collection, demonstrate Smith’s fascination with the natural world, whether in the details of an animal’s bone or in an awe-inspiring panorama of America’s western landscape. Smith is self-taught and was originally drawn to photography when he saw how the camera could transform the elements of the real world into aesthetic objects. Captivated by the clarity and minute detail that can be obtained with contact prints, he began to use view cameras early in his career. All of the works in this exhibition were made either with an 8x10-inch or an 8x20-inch camera. The approximately forty photographs on display were each donated either by former board member Dr. Joe Massey or by Emory alumni Sarit Rozycki and Robert Cromwell.
