From the Box: 20 Years of Press Photography from Mike Wann

Aug 31, 2015

After the destruction caused by Hurricane Katrina photographer Mike Wann sifted through more than 20 years worth of photographs and mementos from his career as a press photographer.  What could be salvaged now resides in a few storage boxes which he brought to Studio Space Junk for display during AVA's Gallery Hop on September 12th from 2 to 8 PM.
