Photo Flood Saint Louis Captures St. Louis’ Neighborhoods
By Melissa Buelt
A new exhibition at the St. Louis airport shows off the work of thirteen photographers -- and an in-depth look at some city neighborhoods.
The images were taken by Photo Flood Saint Louis, a group of photographers who collectively immerse themselves in a hand-picked neighborhood for a few hours to capture its architecture, people and daily scenes of life.
On display at St. Louis Lambert International Airport in Terminal 2 between gates E18 and E20 are some of the best photos from the group’s last five years of neighborhood exploration, highlighting local landmarks including the Arch, Anheuser-Busch Brewery, the Grand Center Arts Academy and the STL250 Celebration.
More intimate moments have also been captured in neighborhoods like Gravois Park, the Ville and the outer stretches of downtown.
“The mission of Photo Flood Saint Louis is to provide photographers in the area to build relationships, to build networks, to learn new skills, to develop new ideas and to deepen their understanding of this place where they live,” Jason Gray, Photo Flood’s founder, said in a press release.
The exhibition features work from photographers Michael Matney, Ann Aurbach, Chris Naffziger, Sue Rakers, Anne Warfield, Jasmine Bell, John Nagel, Michelle Williams, Michelle Bates, Jason Gray, Theresa Harter, Dave Adams and Ryan Archer. It will be on display through May 14, 2018. Check out some of the highlights in the gallery we’ve compiled here.
