“Through the Eyes of JoAnne Kalish: Photographer and Visual Communicator” Exhibit Oct.10 – Dec. 7 Columns Museum

My work is on exhibit at the Columns Museum in Milford, PA. October 10th through December 7, 2014.

The Show will also be during the time of the Black Bear Film Festival

It is the same Museum that has in their collection, the blood-stained Lincoln Flag from the Ford’s Theatre in Washington.

– On a history note, JoAnne was the only photographer at the Long Beach Grand Prix who captured the famous motor series at the start of the Long Beach Grand Prix of near fatal accident with Mario Andretti and James Hunt. Sports Illustrated ran the photo twice that year, the second time was for “The Year in Sports” issue.

The Tragedy of September 2001 will never be forgotten with her photograph of a Prayer Vigil, which has been recognized as one of the greatest tributes to the American Spirit.  Quote from Charlie Borst, Director of Photography at Corbis Sigma USA – “ I must say that from all the pictures I’ve edited of this tragedy, this quickly rises to the top.”

JoAnne’s iconic photograph of Artist Will Barnet, awarded the medal of Arts by President Obama in 2012, is now part of the Permanent Collection of Portraits, in The National Gallery of Art in Washington DC, as well as is being part of the photographic collection in the White House.

Other personal work is on display as well.  PLEASE COME DOWN AND SUPPORT THE ARTS.

9/11 Tragedy

Photograph ©JoAnne Kalish

On 9/13 I photographed a candlelight vigil at Skyland Park.  It was one or two days prior to leaving for Maryland to be an instructor on the AMERICAN PHOTO/POPULAR PHOTOGRAPHY Mentor Series.  So much had happened with the aftermath and I honestly forgot to deal with these photos.  Upon return, my partner Joe DiMaggio came across them and asked me why I had not sent them in to Corbis/Sygma.  My reply was, don’t you think they have enough of this stuff already?  But I wound up sending them in and I received a note from Charlie Borst, the Director of Corbis Sygma asking if the photo could be syndicated worldwide.  His comment was “I must say that from all the pictures I’ve edited of this tragedy, this quickly rises to the top.”  “great work; I’m glad I got to see it!”  I was totally, absolutely (but nicely) surprised at this response.  Compliments are not that easy to come by in our business and this was a good one.
