Evening projections on June 8 and 9 will showcase works by more than three dozen photojournalists and artists, including Todd Hido, Moises Saman. Steve Winter, Arlene Gottfried, and Beth Dow, to name just a few of the established professionals. The work of several emerging photographers will also be part of the projections.
