For the Bread and Roses annual Tribute to Change event, they are curating a collection of photographs that document communities coming together to build power and self-determination, empowerment, and working for social change. The photos chosen will be exhibited alongside the work of renowned documentary photographer Harvey Finkle who has produced a substantial body of work concerned with social, political and cultural issues. The exhibit will take place at the National Constitution Center on Thursday, October 15, 2009.
I am a friend and a fan of Harvey Finkle, and I'm proud to be one of 4 jurors for this exhibition.
