Associate Professor of Photography, Frank Hamrick had his body of work “Keep Moving” selected for inclusion in the closing slideshow presentation at the 2013 PhotoNOLA Photography Festival in New Orleans. The closing event was juried by Sethasak Boonchai, President, New Orleans Photo Alliance, Richard McCabe, Curator of Photography, Ogden Museum of Southern Art and Loc Pham, Creative Director, Cathedral Creative Studios. The festival, organized by the New Orleans Photo Alliance, occurs each December and began after Hurricane Katrina as a way to unite the community. PhotoNOLA includes portfolio reviews, lectures, demonstrations, book signings and numerous photo-based exhibitions at museums and galleries throughout New Orleans and attracts photographers, art directors, curators and photography collectors from all around the country.
Professor Hamrick stated, “PhotoNOLA is a great event that brings people together and we get to see what each other is doing. Last year I participated in an exhibition and lecture at the local arts high school, the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts. I am happy to again be included in the festival’s programing.”
Also included in the closing event at PhotoNOLA was Louisiana Tech University graduate student Jaime Johnson, who has recently had her work selected for upcoming exhibitions in Vermont and Arkansas. Johnson will graduate with MFA in Photography this spring.
