Prof. Priya Kambli and her family traveled this summer to Buenos Aires in Argentina for the show of her photography taking place as part of XVI Encuentros Abiertos–Festival de la Luz 2010.  Prof. Kambli was invited to present a solo exhibition of her work at the Centro Cultural Recoleta there from August 6 – 30, 2010.

In addition, her photographic series "Color Falls Down" was selectedby Vince Aletti(Writer/Critic for The New Yorker) as his "Juror Pick" in the Project Prize Category.  This prize is part of a new competition:  in recognition of mutual interests in documentary and fine art photography, Daylight Magazine and the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University have started an international competition, the Daylight/CDS Photo Awards, to honor and promote talented and committed photographers, both emerging and established.

And finally!  two photographs for Prof. Kambli's series "Color Falls Down" have been selected by Anne Tucker (Gus and Lyndall Wortham Curator Museum of Fine Arts, Houston) to be shown at Museum of Fine Arts Houston, for their Photo Forum exhibition.  The purpose of the Photo Forum exhibition is to put together a group show of works that the museum would like to acquire for its collection. The exhibition will run from September to January  at the MFAH. In November the museum hosts an event for Photo Forum members, who pool their money, and vote on which works from the exhibition they want to fund and give to the MFAH.

Prof. Kambli's work can be seen at her website:  You can also read more in this feature on her which came out this week in Truman's campus newspaper, The Index.
