Time:7-9 p.m.
Description:
Documentary photographers discuss their work
Three prominent documentary photographers - Kael Alford, Jeff Brouws and Tammy Cromer-Campbell - show slides of their work and discuss the context, technique and motivations behind their projects. The panel will be followed by a Q&A session with the audience and a reception with refreshments.

Alford is a Dallas-based photojournalist who has recently documented the Gulf Coast of Louisiana and the environmental damage there in the wake of both natural and man-made disasters. She was in Baghdad at the onset of the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq, and she traveled throughout the region documenting the war. Her work is featured in "Unembedded: Four Independent Photojournalists on the War in Iraq."

Jeff Brouws is the author of seven books, including the recent "Approaching Nowhere." He has instigated an all-encompassing photographic investigation of decimated inner cities: abandoned manufacturing sites, low-income housing and other commercial ruins - residual public spaces left behind by the effects of deindustrialization, white flight, disinvestment, failed urban policy and overall societal neglect.

In addition to her successful work as an architectural, corporate and commercial photographer, Longview-based Tammy Cromer-Campbell has exhibited documentary and fine art photography throughout the country. Her book "Fruit of the Orchard" documents the community of Winona, Texas, as it was affected by a toxic waste facility that operated there.
