Contemporary Photographs from Greifswald, Germany
In February 2007, Newport News City Council affirmed Greifswald, Germany, as its third official Sister City. Sister City relationships offer the flexibility to form connections between communities that are mutually beneficial and which address issues that are most relevant for each city. This photography exhibition will recognize the 10th anniversary of the Newport News–Greifswald relationship. These photographs were created by eight photographers who live and work in the region.
Marine Photography 1948-1972
Beginning in 1948, The Mariners’ Museum and Park and the James River Camera Club co-hosted an annual juried exhibition of marine photography each spring, in which amateur and professional photographers submitted their prints illustrating man’s relationship with the sea. With each year’s juried exhibition, the displayed photographs from local and international photographers became part of the Museum’s Library collection. This retrospective photography exhibition will present a multitude of photographs collected from 1948 through 1972 and will explore man’s connection to the ocean.
