Antioch University Midwest Alumnus Andy Snow will display his collaborative photo exhibit on the 1913 Dayton Flood beginning August 24 through October 2013 on AUM’s campus.

The opening of the exhibit on Saturday, Aug. 24 from 4 – 6 pm featuring a brief talk by Snow and he’ll be signing copies of his book, A Flood of Memories, One Hundred Years After the Flood: Images from 1913 and Today.

Snow collaborated with the Miami Conservancy District to create an historic documentary observing the 100th anniversary of the famous flood that devastated Dayton and several other communities along the Great Miami River. His series of photos shows particular locations that flooded, gathered from hundreds of archival materials, as well as those same locations as they appear today.

The project was originally exhibited at the Dayton Art Institute (DAI) as part of the “Storm, Watershed & Riverbank” exhibit that ran February through May 2013. The photos are also the subject of Snow’s book, A Flood of Memories, One Hundred Years After the Flood: Images from 1913 and Today.

The project earned Snow the “Best of ASMP 2013″ from the American Society of Media Photographers.
