Local photographer’s work headed to international exhibition
PINK HILL -- Photographs created by Marie White of Turner-White Photography in Pink Hill have recently been accepted into the Merit Collection of Professional Photographers of America’s (PPA) 2018 International Photographic Competition.
White's work will be on display at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Jan. 20-22. The International Photographic Exhibition is held in conjunction with Imaging USA, an annual convention and expo for professional photographers.
A panel of 32 eminent jurors from across the U.S. selected the top photographs from more than 5,000 submitted entries at Gwinnett Technical College in Georgia. Judged against a standard of excellence, 2,622 images were selected for the General Collection and 513 (roughly 10 percent) were selected for the esteemed Loan Collection — the best of the best. The Loan Collection images will all be published in the much-anticipated “Loan Collection” book and more than 365 selected General Collection images will be published in the “Showcase” book by Marathon Press.
White's photographs, "Mischief Maker" and "Pretty Hurts," will be in the International Photographic Exhibition alongside other top photographic works from the competition and traveling and special invitational displays. These images constitute one of the world’s largest annual exhibits of professional photography gathered simultaneously under one roof.
