WEST PALM BEACH, FL – Fatima NeJame, president and chief executive officer of the world-renowned Palm Beach Photographic Centre (PBPC), today announced that the next exhibition would be Seeing Double: The Best of DOUBLEtruck Magazine. Running November 13 through January 9, this exhibition will present more than 100 of the best photographs featured in the first decade of the awardwinning quarterly magazine, which bills itself as “The World’s Best News Pictures in Print!” As a major bonus, the show will feature numerous Back Stories, revealing “the hearts and minds of the brave photojournalists who capture those one of a kind moments of history.” In fact, the exhibition is a virtual time capsule of some of the most memorable moments in recent history captured by world-renowned photojournalists. “Hosting this epic exhibition offers viewers the opportunity to learn about, or revisit, the celebrations and tragedies that have defined recent history through iconic images that illuminate the human condition. Many have called DOUBLEtruck Magazine, the new LIFE Magazine,” said NeJame. “This exhibition will be truly spectacular.” Scott Mc Kiernan, publisher of DOUBLEtruck, director of KONA Gallery and Photojournalism Center, and the founder of ZUMA Press, the largest picture agency and wire service in the world run by a photojournalist, is curating Seeing Double. Launched in 2004, DOUBLEtruck is dedicated to promoting outstanding photojournalism and showcasing high-impact photography of important world issues. The magazine’s title refers to an ad or editorial project that covers two facing paces. “The magazine was inspired by the photojournalism renaissance in 2003, when major publications around the globe ran amazing picture content of the Iraq conflict over numerous two-page spreads,” said Mc Kiernan. “Each image featured in the magazine tells the story as only a strong single image can.” The public is invited to the opening reception for Seeing Double: The Best of DOUBLEtruck Magazine. It will be held on Thursday, November 13, from 6 to 8 p.m. The Palm Beach Photographic Centre is located at 415 Clematis Street in downtown West Palm Beach.
