Works also are on exhibit at the Richland Public Library.

Afterglow is a dual-venue art exhibition and associated series of public talks about the desert, the landscape of the Columbia Plateau, the contemporary significance of the Hanford Nuclear Site, and its multi-faceted meaning to the cultures who live and have lived in the area.

This event provides a unique opportunity for individuals in the Tri-City/Columbia Basin community to reflect on the dramatic relationship between their home town, the environment, and world events, as pictured through the eyes of a Richland-raised contemporary artist.

The last few years have not been kind to the newspaper industry. Falling revenues from advertising, dropping subscription numbers due to "free" news on the internet, the rising price of newsprint and corresponding shrinking of space in the printed version of the newspaper, shrinking newsroom staffs and newspaper closures have become the industry norm. The time and resources to do in-depth journalistic projects has shrunk with tightening budgets.

Faced with these challenges, a group of photojournalists — all newspaper or former newspaper photographers — decided to embark on a project to revitalize our vision and create a different piece of documentary photography than what we produce every day. In late 2009, we gathered to create a project that would push us in new directions and allow us to do the kind of documentary photojournalism that it has become increasingly difficult to do at community newspapers.

As a group, we live scattered across the state of Washington — in Seattle, Spokane, Yakima, Wenatchee, and Kennewick. But we wanted to create a project together that was a reflection of our individual communities and as the state as a whole. In the end, we decided to focus on the land itself, as a resource, as a home, as a definition of a way of life. We decided to shoot our project for a year, beginning in January 2010 and concluding at the end of the year.

Each photographer approached the topic with a different idea, a different vision and story. Combined, we hope that these stories begin to convey the complex and beautiful relationship Washingtonians have with the land we call home.
