With an eye for emotion and a tap of a finger, photojournalists can tell a complex story in a single image.
Work by regional photojournalists, from experienced pros to newbies, is on display now at the Third Street Gallery in the exhibit “Photojournalism on the Palouse.”
The images on display first appeared in the quickly digested mediums of newspapers or the internet. The exhibit gives photographers a chance to share their favorite works in a space where viewers can slow down, take a longer look and enjoy news photography as an art that celebrates the human story.
A reception 5 to 7 p.m. April 4 will feature the panel discussion “The Photograph in Contemporary News Media” at 6 p.m. at Moscow City Hall. The discussion will be moderated by Kenton Bird, associate professor in the University of Idaho School of Journalism and Mass Media. Small bites and a no-host bar will be provided by Bloom.
Exhibiting Artists are Geoff Crimmins and Kai Eiselein of the Moscow-Pullman Daily News, Pete Caster and Barry Kough of the Lewiston Tribune, Moscow native Ted Warren, of the Associated Press; and University of Idaho Argonaut photographers Alexandra Brizee, Brianna Finnegan, Olivia Heersink, Kali Nelson and Alexandra Stutzman.
The exhibit runs through May 24. Gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays on the second and third floors of Moscow City Hall at 206 E. Third St., Moscow.
