If you haven’t been to the Orange County Center for Contemporary Art to see Wide Angle View yet, do so. The exhibit continues to receive glowing reviews because of the extraordinary images and videos on display. The newest reviews are in the March Art Scene and University of California’s magazine, New University.
Sixteen photo and multimedia journalists are represented from all corners of the earth. They have all won top honors in their field, including Pulitzers and Emmys. This is the best of photojournalism from around the globe.
How do journalists decompress from the stress of being placed in war zones and natural disasters? What do they choose to photograph on their own time? Wide Angle View exhibits 120 photographs, placing five assignment images next to five personal images to show us the human behind the lens. Twenty one films, including Altered Oceans (Pulitzer) by Rick Loomis, and Trapped: Mental Illness in America’s Prisons (Pulitzer) by Ackerman Gruber can be viewed in our media room.
This is an exhibit worth the drive, but hurry because the last day is March 26th.
