FotoWeek DC Presents: Katrina An Unnatural Disaster

One of the special events during FotoWeek DC will be a photography exhibit highlighting a small selection of photographs by the Open Society Institute's Katrina Media Fellows.

Meet the OSI Katrina Media Fellows - watch a series of videos featuring artists like:

Photographer John Pinderhughes discusses his mission to keep the story of Katrina survivors and their needs in the public eye.

Photographer Radcliffe Roye answers the question "What do unimportant people look like?"

Photographer Russell Frederick documents the emotional devastation of Katrina on its survivors and how he personally was inspired by their determination.

Photographer Wayne Lawrence felt obligated to visit the areas destroyed by Katrina and to connect with the people who decided to stay. Lawrence mentions that as a photographer, he feels conflicted because he can leave but his subjects have to stay.

FotoWeek DC is the first annual celebration of photography in the nation’s capital.
