Two MMW photography instructors, Tomasz Tomaszewski and David H. Wells, won prizes in this spring's SocialDocumentary.net (SDN) call for entries, Crisis & Opportunity: Documenting the Global Recession.
SDN is a website dedicated to showcasing documentary photography exhibits from around the world. This contest sought entries that "provide insight into how ordinary citizens around the world are coping with the new "hard times"".
Judges awarded Tomasz first prize for his story “Hades?” which tells the story of how economic recession has affected Upper Silesia, Poland. David H. Wells' project, “Foreclosed Dreams” won the People’s Choice Award. ”Foreclosed Dreams” explores the desolate effects of the foreclosure crisis across America.
