Stan Strembicki is currently a professor in the College of Art at Washington University in St. Louis, where he has taught since 1982. He has exhibited throughout the United States and internationally and has taught in Florence, Italy, since 1990. Strembicki earned his MFA in photography from the California Institute of the Arts in 1977. He was granted a National Endowment for the Arts Grant in 1993. His work from the Katrina portfolio was recently purchased by the Louisiana State Museum, The Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago, and the Kresge Art Museum.
Drawn primarily from the Getty Research Institute in Los Angeles, the exhibition features more than 150 objects that together chart a chronological path from exuberant outbreak through years of grinding combat and into the long, unsettled aftermath.
