Lou Stoumen Award Winners: The Legacy

through May 17
31 Jan, 2009 - 17 May, 2009


In 1991, Lou Stoumen established an endowed gift to be given through MoPA to a photographer whose work related in spirit to his own humanistic approach to photography. The Legacy exhibition features photographs by the 2009 Stoumen Prize winner, Mikhael Subotsky, whose documentary photographs of South African prisons are both compassionate and revealing. The exhibition continues with previous Stoumen winners, Debbie Fleming Caffery (1996), Kenro Izu (1999), James Nachtwey (2002), and Gary Schneider (2006), by examining new work alongside the photographs that won them the award.
