Openhouse Gallery is hosting The Year in Pictures 2010, the New York Press Photographers Association’s yearly contest for metro-area photographers. The exhibition will feature 200 photos out of more than 2,000 submissions. Pictures from Haiti to Harlem, politicians to polecats and everything in between. The exhibition is open September 15 through September 18 from noon-8 pm and is free. On September 14 from 6-9 pm there’s an opening reception including a donation drive for the Chris Hondros Fund. Hondros, the Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist died in Libya in April, and donations will go to young photographers.
“The pictures on display are made by the photographers who cover NYC and the metro area on a daily basis. With each category the images evoke such different emotions, similar to day to day work of a photojournalist. One day you are covering the Mayor at City Hall and the next you can be at a homicide scene or even a parade,” says Julia Xanthos of the New York Press Photographers Association.
The Year in Pictures winners were selected by a three-judge panel of MaryAnne Golon, Jonathan Newton and William Snyder. Golon is director of photography and multimedia at AARP and Time’s former director of photography. She was twice named a top-10 most important person in photography by American photo mag. Snyder is a four-time Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer and Newton is a staff photographer at The Washington Post.
The Year in Pictures also includes a multimedia category featuring nine pieces and judged by Seth Gitner and Bruce Strong of Syracuse’s Newhouse School of Public Communications.
