50 States Project
We can't remember exactly where we found out about the 50 States Project, but it's a neat idea. Stuart Pilkington has selected one photographer from each state and assigned them a theme about every two months on which to submit one image. The first assignment was "People," and the next, the results of which haven't yet been posted, is "Habitat." The other six have not yet been announced. Georgia's photographer is Maury Gortemiller, who is also a competitive apneist and was in the most recent MFA class to graduate from the Lamar Dodd School of Art. That's his submission for "People" above. We should be both happy and proud that out of all the photographers in the state, the one selected is a part of this university.
