Congratulations to MEG artist Timothy Hyde!

The Board of Directors of Focus on the Story have announced the formation of a new advisory council, which will include Timothy Hyde, an award-winning fine art photographer and member of the Photography Initiative Advisory Committee for the National Gallery of Art. Other photographers selected to be on the advisory council include Kirth Bobb, a leading DC portrait and wedding photographer; Sharon Farmer, the Chief White House photographer in the Clinton administration; Carl Juste, an award-winning photojournalist at the Miami Herald; Elizabeth Cheng Krist, a former senior photo editor at National Geographic; and Lucian Perkins, an independent photographer and filmmaker who was a two-time Pulitzer Prize winner at the Washington Post.

Focus on the Story, an independent, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization based in Washington, DC, was founded on the driving principle that photography can spark meaningful conversations at the intersection of policy, civic engagement and visual storytelling.

"Bold Planet" by Sliter and Leedham reviewed in Washington Post

Congratulations to Matt Leedham and Tom Sliter whose exhibit was reviewed by Mark Jenkins of the Washington Post.

"Several visual conversations chatter in “Bold Planet,” Matt Leedham and Tom Sliter’s show at Multiple Exposures Gallery. Sliter’s black-and-white horizontal photographs hang on a gray wall in two parallel series: sand on top and ice on the bottom. They speak to each other, as well as to Leedham’s color pictures, which are more diverse in format and location — and which pop from a red surface. " [READ MORE]

Bold Planet will be on exhibit at Multiple Exposures Gallery from January 1 - February 10, 2019.

Multiple Exposures Gallery is pleased to present new of work by Matt Leedham and Tom Sliter: "Bold Planet".  This exhibit will be on view from January 2 through February 10, 2019, with an opening reception to be held on January 12, 2018, 2-4pm.

Matt Leedham

Why are we drawn to the magnificence of nature? It is often the places that are the most remote and the most dramatic that call our attention. The mixture of grandeur and loneliness, and the contrast of complete fullness and emptiness captures my attention. The adventure each image requires of me is my inspiration.  It is my hope that these images inspire you to go out and explore for yourself.

Tom Sliter

Our planet contains myriad landscapes that are at once visually stunning and emotionally appealing. In this exhibit, I focus on the contrasts and similarities of two extreme locations – the Antarctic Peninsula and White Sands National Monument in New Mexico. Despite being separated by thousands of miles and a hundred degrees, both ice and sand are sculpted by common natural forces to reveal an artistic kinship, a visual unity that is reinforced in a black and white print. I hope this exhibit not only captures your imagination but deepens your appreciation for our Bold Planet.
