Photographers for Hope

Sep 30

7:00 PM
Dominican Center Rm. 218

The public is invited to an evening of works by the Photographers for Hope collaborative on September 30 at 7 pm at Mount Saint Mary College, 330 Powell Ave., Newburgh, N.Y.

The free event will take place in the college’s Kaplan Family Library and Learning Center, room 218.

In late September, nine international photographers will spend a week chronicling the events, people, and architecture of the City of Newburgh. The photos will appear in an exhibition at the Newburgh Armory Unity Center, and could potentially be utilized in other exhibitions locally, nationally, internationally, and online.

“In Newburgh, we hope to capture some of the spirit and energy of the reemergence of the city as a place on the rise,” said lead artist David Burnett.

At the Mount talk, Burnett (an American), Anna Wang (an American living in Switzerland), Sarah Bones (an American), and Katarina Premfors (a Swedish woman living in Dubai) will discuss the origins and purpose of Photographers for Hope, and showcase some of their pictures.

Photographers for Hope was formed five years ago by a group of like-minded documentary photographers who felt that working jointly would expand and focus the visual potential of their work.

The collaborative has completed projects in Brazil, Bangladesh, Scotland, and Indonesia.

In addition to Burnett, Wang, Bones, and Premfors, Photographers for Hope is comprised of Matteo Cardin, an Italian living in Croatia; Patricia Goldschmid, a native of Switzerland; Ben Moldenhauer, a German living in Hong Kong; Joe Oppedisano, an American living in Italy; and Antoine Tardy, a native of France.
