Caption: Bryan Meltz
Photographer Bryan Meltz, whose work has been featured in the exhibition “AFTER: Images from Haiti” on display in Emory’s Woodruff Library, has received a bronze CASE award from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education.
Meltz, an Atlanta-based documentary photographer and a staff photographer with Emory Photo/Video, won her award in the Photographer of the Year category in the 2011 Circle of Excellence Awards Program.
The exhibition has featured a rotating series of photos Meltz took during multiple trips to Haiti after the January 2010 earthquake. It remains on display through Sept. 9, 2011 outside the ECIT classrooms on Level 2. As the photos are rotated out, they are put on display at the Grace Crum Rollins building on the Plaza Level of the Rollins Public School of Health, where they will continue to be on display after Sept. 9.
A book of the photos, also called “AFTER: Images from Haiti,” is being published by Meltz and GIANT Global, a nonprofit organization based in Tucker, Georgia that Meltz has been collaborating with in Haiti. The book will be sold at the Emory Libraries booth (corner of East Ponce de Leon and Clairemont) at the AJC Decatur Book Festival Sept. 3-4. Proceeds from book purchases will be donated to fund GIANT’s ongoing work in Haiti.
