MARCH 2006


September 11th Photo Exhibition Opening March 14th, 2006


HARLINGEN, TEXAS, Harlingen Arts & Heritage Museum is proud to showcase the work of New York photographer Mark Roddenberry in an Exhibit titled  "Avenue of the Strongest."  The exhibit opens on March 14th, 2006 and runs through May 31st, 2006. An opening reception with the Photographer will take place on Tuesday, April 18th, from 7pm to 9pm.  The reception is open to the public. “ Avenue of the Strongest ” is also being exhibited at the same time at the J. Erik Jonsson Library in Dallas and the San Antonio Public Library.

Originally from Florida, Mark Roddenberry moved to New York to pursue his career as a professional photographer. In New York, Mark began experimenting with creating panoramic images by taking overlapping photographs and then assembling them into composite, single images. Mark's photographs have been published in FEMA's World Trade Center Building Performance Study and in the book September 11th Photo Project, a compilation from selections of the New York exhibition bearing the same title. On September 11, 2005 the exhibition was displayed at the International Museum of Arts and Science in McAllen, Texas.












The exhibit's title, "Avenue of the Strongest," is inspired by a street with the same name in lower Manhattan, located about one mile north of the World Trade Center site. 

These photographs chronicle that tragic day in a sensitive manner, suitable for all audiences.
