Opening today in Woodruff Library ...

If you've browsed Emory Magazine or visited any of Emory's thousands upon thousands of webpages over the past few years, you've seen Bryan Meltz's work.

Meltz is a staff photographer with University Photography; before she came to Emory, she had quite a successful freelance career (which she didn't give up when she joined the University's staff), and she continues to produce exciting work both inside and outside Emory.

Some of Meltz's most affecting images are on display right now in Woodruff Library.

“After: Images from Haiti,” an exhibition of work Meltz created during visits to the devastated Caribbean nation in the aftermath of the January 2010 earthquake, opens today and will run through September 2011 in the ECIT Gallery on Level 2 of the library. It is free and open to the public during regular library hours.

Meltz first visited Haiti in March of this year on assignment for the Rollins School of Public Health's alumni magazine. Several of her photos ran in the publication, but they represented just a sliver of her work there. Meltz sought a venue to tell a deeper story, and that's how "After: Images from Haiti" came to be.

Images will rotate every three months, so multiple visits would be worthwhile. A good first trip would be Tuesday, October 5, at 6:00 p.m. Meltz will be in Woodruff Library's Jones Room discussing her experiences.
