Nick Nichols: Father of the Festival

There exists a bittersweet joy in watching your kids grow up. As a father of two, I can only tell you how great it is to see them develop personalities, and how sad it is to concede to the bare memories of how they once were. In that strange paradox where you end up becoming [...]

Shots and Works: Pt.1

Herds of us gathered at The nTelos Wireless Pavilion on Friday night to enjoy two hours of art from over twenty emerging and established photographers. We sat under the stars on chairs or blankets, in the company of our friends, as the images explored aspects of our nature and the condition of our planet. The [...]

Richard Misrach: Poetic Phrases

When Richard Misrach first took an interest in photography during college in 1967, he approached the medium much in the same way as other young and ambitious academics do: with an emboldened passion to document and change the world.

Masters Talks: Hank Willis Thomas

Lynsey Addario is a tough act to follow. And with the parents of his bride-to-be in attendance, it would appear that the odds were stacked against him.

Masters Talks: Lynsey Addario

You knew this would be emotional. Lynsey Addario took to the stage of the Paramount Theater with a sold-out crowd at her feet. It took just minutes to bring them to their knees.
