“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.

Nikon or Canon whichever you prefer.  Some of us made the switch along the way.  Both great systems!

Here I am at the Long Beach Grand Prix with a group of photographers including editor Kevin Fitzgerald.  This same day I shot a motor series of the famous shunt below in the first turn, at the start of the race, and landed my first photograph in Sports Illustrated. I was the only photographer that got this photograph!  The rest was history.  This photograph is also a double truck spread in Mario Andretti’s coffee table book. The editor of Andretti’s book wrongly gave my partner Joe the credit but it was mine!

Track History Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach Mario Andretti avoided a first-lap, multi-car collision, then went on to outduel F/One stars  first-lap shunt involving James Hunt that remains perhaps the Grand Prix’s most enduring image.
