Chronicle: Ferguson is creating a piece of history by compiling photos from eyewitness sources. We will use these photos to generate a book that will then be donated to St. Louis area schools. We hope this will spark discussions amongst the students and teachers of our schools. If you want your photos including please submit them to our website for consideration.
We are also organizing photography workshops to teacher and inspire future generations to document their lives and the events effecting them.
Those of us in the community know that Ferguson’s story is bigger than recent events. Broader. More hopeful. And the reaction in cities throughout the country and around the world show that there are many people out there whose hearts are with us.
Until now, the story has been directed by the media. Our aim with Chronicle: Ferguson is to change that. We are seeking photographs from the community: citizens of Ferguson and St. Louis, participants in protests, anyone who has been affected by the events in our community. Whatever your story is, we want to show it.
The Chronicle: Ferguson book will be created from the best photos submitted to our website, chosen by a three-person judging panel along with input from the community. We want to hear from you about the photos that move you or tell a part of the story that you hadn’t seen before. We are excited to receive the official support of the International Photography Hall of Fame and Museum, who has agreed to promote Chronicle: Ferguson on their website and in their Museum shop. This support comes as the Museum mounts its own landmark exhibition, Ferguson and Beyond, illustrating the significance of this one-of-a-kind publication.
