Photojournalism professor Robert Heller has had work selected for five international juried photography exhibitions, including a photograph that received the distinction of Director’s Choice.
The chosen photographs range in style from portraiture to architecture, and include subjects from a Holocaust liberator— “an extraordinary face, one of my favorites photographically,” said Heller— to the wafting gray hair of American bluegrass musician Del McCoury— “I’m always looking for something different.”
Congratulations to Professor Rob Heller whose photograph was selected for the International Juried Portrait Photography Exhibition at the 12 12 Gallery in Richmond, Va., and received the Director's Choice Award.

JEM Professor Robert Heller, along with his 490 Advance Photography class, spent 30 hours in LaFollette, Tennessee documenting life there as part of the 2011 edition of "Eyes on LaFollette."
This is the 14th edition of the project which began in 1993. The students took nearly 7,000 photos in the northern Tennessee town.
Some of the activities documented were a local church's Friday night fish fry, a senior center excercise class, and the rounds of the local meals on wheels program.
