The American Diversity Project took place over the week of May 13 -19 in the heart of the Mississippi Delta in Clarksdale, Ms. You can see the project at: “”http://www.americandiversityproject.org">www.americandiversityproject.org" The 12 participating photographers and 13 staff members collaborated to produce a number of solid photo stories and a a very strong group of multimedia based stories and oral histories. One of the pieces we are excited/proud of is Patrick Yen’s creation of the 360 degree video panoramic, which can be seen at: “”http://www.americandiversityproject.org/2007/daily/dayfour/dayfourpan">www.americandiversityproject.org/2007/daily/dayfour/dayfourpan"
Also, this year we are paying the way for one of the photographers, David Degner, to stay on in the Delta for the summer and continue working on various projects. His work can be seen as it progresses on his ADP summer blog at: “”http://www.incendiaryimage.com/sketchbook">www.incendiaryimage.com/sketchbook"
As always, we appreciate and comments on suggestions on how we can improve the project. You can reach us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
