The Southeast Museum of Photography (http://www.smponline.org/index.html) has re-opened in new quarters on the Daytona Beach Community College Campus. The new exhibits include prints by Andre Kertesz, Steve McCurry and two Iranian photographers.

This Saturday (11/10) a group of us went to the Museum. The new building is right on International Speedway Drive about 1 mile East of the Speedway (hard to miss). The space is very nice easily holding the 4 exhibits. The Kertesz exhibit includes contact prints from his Hungarian period as well as his later Polaroids. The Hungarian prints were small; probably the negatives from a Goerz Tenax camera (luckily, I had a 3+ eyeglass that I use for viewing the ground glass). Some of the rural scenes are very captivating. The Polaroids were interesting more from a graphical design perspective.

The Mike McCurry dye coupler prints were large & many were stunning. The Iranian photographers' exhibits were interesting too. Highly recommend a visit if in the Daytona area.

I'm in Jax Beach area near Intercoastal. There is actually a few of us LF photographers in the area. I keep an email list announcing events for our little group. Let me know if you're interested. Btw, there is a photography exhibit at Harn Museum in Gainesville - modernist photographers including most of the greats from 20th century ( see Harn Museum schedule (http://www.harn.ufl.edu/harn.php?ThisPage=harn.php&category=2&subcat=a) )

Added to list. Should be sending out soon an outing schedule for 1st half of next year.

Thanks for the info on the Harn exhibit - my wife & I hope to visit it this Saturday. The level of photography exhibits in this area is encouraging.
