Alyssa Adams began the workshop in 1988 with her husband, Pulitzer-prize winning photographer, Eddie Adams. As Eddie Adams said, "I wish I were able to have attended something like this when I was coming up to meet some of my photography heroes. There are people assembled here this weekend that would have otherwise taken five years to meet." The Workshop, now in its 22nd year, is held every Columbus day weekend in Jeffersonville, New York and is sponsored by Nikon, Inc. The Workshop is tuition-free. Students are admitted based on the merit of their portfolio. Please join Alyssa Adams and Nikon representative, Mark Suban who will present work from Workshop 22 and answer any questions about applications for 2010.

Black Team Work Weekend #1

We're up at the farm, getting it ready for Barnstorm XXII. If you truly have nothing to do today, you can watch the live webcam that Brien set up and catch glimpses of exciting raking, mowing and weed-whacking. Only 62 days until EAWXXII!

EDIT: We broke the webcam down because we're leaving today, but stay tuned for some pictures from the farm, as well as some more updates on former students!

Congratulations are in order for Emily Schiffer, who was recently named the winner of the 2009 Inge Morath Award.

The prize of $5000, which is awarded by the Inge Morath Foundation and The Magnum Foundation, "is given annually to a female documentary photographer under the age of 30, in memory of the late Magnum photographer Inge Morath."

The other finalist for the award was Jenn Ackerman, who is also a Barnstorm XXI alumna.

Congrats to the students of Barnstorm XXII!

After a grueling final review, the list of applicants have been whittled down to 50 students and 50 professionals. See the list here!

Send me updates!

Are you a barnstormer who recently won an award? Do you know another EAW student who has been honored recently? Do you have a gallery opening coming up? A project being published? Send it to me! It's a little tough keeping track of all 2100 of you!

For instance, as the astute Calla Evans (Barnstorm XX) pointed out, Dominic Nahr (Barnstorm XVII) was also included in PDN's 30.

All Things Considered: Eddie Adams on NPR

NPR recently profiled Eddie Adams, coinciding with the release of a new book entitled Eddie Adams: Vietnam. Two Pulitzer Prize winners, David Halberstam and Peter Arnett, contribute to the 200-page book published by Umbrage Editions. There's also an exhibit at the Umbrage Gallery in Brooklyn until April 30, 2009.

In the piece, Hal Buell, a former AP photo editor, opines, "No war was ever photographed the way Vietnam was, and no war will ever be photographed again the way Vietnam was photographed." That much is clear through Eddie's photographs.

Photo by Toni Greaves

EAW fixture, Pete Kiehart, was quick to point out that this years PDN 30 included more than just Kosuke Okahara.

Justin Maxon (Barnstorm XX), Jared Moosey (Barnstorm XXI), and Toni Greaves (Barnstorm XXI) all attended the Eddie Adams Workshop and have taken their photography to another level, and joined the ranks of other distinguished alumni who have won this distinction in the past.

Congratulations to all!

Kosuke Okahara (Barnstorm XIX) is a PDN 30

PDN's list of 30 photographers to watch has featured numerous Eddie Adams Workshop alumni and this year is no different. We send out a big congratulations to Kosuke Okahara, a self-taught, self-motivated photographer who has covered a variety of topics around the world.

His work is often difficult to view for its graphic nature, but it captures the reality of the harsh world around us like his photo essay on girls in Japan who "cut" themselves following years of abuse.

Stacy Pearsall (Barnstorm XIX) on Oprah

Few people wield influence like Oprah, so we send a huge congratulations to Stacy Pearsall for appearing on last week's episode to share some of her combat photography.

Last year, Stacy became the first woman to win the prestigious Military Photographer of the Year award twice. She has attended the workshop for the past three years helping out with logistics by volunteering her time on the Black Team.
