Gulf Coast Media was represented last week at a national photography context and exhibit in New York City.
Micah Green, chief digital officer, was accepted into the 39th rendition of American Photography, a leading hardcover, juried annual that offers an expansive view with hundreds of images selected from thousands of entries. The contest is regarded by creative professionals as the "book of record" and "best source for today's top image-makers."
His selected photo details a steer wrestling practice he captured on assignment for a 2022 story on Robertsdale High School graduate Drew Clukey, who signed to Southeastern Oklahoma State University on a rodeo scholarship. The photograph is of his friend, Josh Hyatt, in Elsanor at the Luke Campbell's farm.
"I'm proud to be able to have an image from south Alabama included in an archive of this magnitude," Green said. "This image to me represents the strength and determination of the people of the Alabama Gulf Coast and this community I feel lucky to get to cover and help tell their stories."
American Photography, and its illustration counterpart American Illustration, "are the premier showcases for editorial, advertising, book, poster, design, animation, fine art, unpublished and student work created by established, emerging and student illustrators and photographers." The images in this year's selection include everything from unpublished works to Prince Harry's book cover portrait, from the aftermath of tragedy like gun violence and the war in Ukraine to high fashion and celebrity portraiture.
