2003-09-23 until 2003-12-12
Southeast Museum of Photography
Daytona, FL, USA United States of America

The fall 2003 season at Florida's internationally renowned Southeast Museum of Photography (SMP) will feature three major exhibitions of documentary photography and photojournalism from James Nachtwey, Robert Lerner and John Cohen. The season also features lectures, film screenings and seminars.

A Lens To The World - Photographs by Robert Lerner

This retrospective exhibition surveys Bob Lerner's work for Look magazine during its heyday in the fifties and sixties. During his career Lerner photographed throughout the world and in all 50 states covering hard news, sports, the major social problems of his time, as well as the lives of television and film celebrities.

there is no eye: Photographs By John Cohen

New York City of the 1950s, artists, writers and Beatnik poets, the jazz and folk scenes, traditional music from all over America and the music and art of Peruvian villages are featured. The history of these sub cultures from the 1950's and 1960's is captured in richly textured and evocative documentary photographs, film stills and in moving portraits of people like Woody Guthrie, Bill Monroe, Bob Dylan, Alan Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, Gregory Corso, Philip Guston, Alan Kaprow, Franz Kline and the Stanley Brothers.

James Nachtwey: Testimony

James Nachtwey is one of the most highly respected documentary photographers working today. He has worked continuously for almost twenty years photographing human conflict and struggle. His photo essays tell the story of human dignity and triumph when, as he says, "the powerless stand up to the powerful," and the human spirit survives in spite of horrendous circumstances. He has photographed war, famine, and racial conflict in the Middle East (Lebanon, the West Bank and Gaza), South Africa, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Romania, Chechnya, Afghanistan, Bosnia, the Philippines and Indonesia. He has photographed famine in Sudan and Somalia, genocide in Rwanda, ethnic strife in Sri Lanka, homelessness in Rio de Janeiro, industrial pollution in Eastern Europe, and the wars in Bosnia, Kosovo, the Persian Gulf and Iraq. Discretion is advised for children due to the graphic nature of these news images.
