  • Texas: Lone Star Pride

    July 2, 2005 to October 6, 2005

    Traveling the state as a Houston Chronicle photographer, E. Joseph Deering was amazed by the way images of the Texas flag just popped up in the most unlikely places-the sides of barns, mailboxes, airplanes, porch swings, front doors, water towers, pickup trucks, cowboy boots, even running shorts. He had never seen so many displays of state pride and state love as there are in Texas. Intrigued by this phenomenon, E. Joe, a native of Michigan and graduate of Brooks Institute of Photography, set out to capture it on film.

  • The Diary of Friedrich Kellner

    April 1, 2005 to May 30, 2005

    Friedrich Kellner was a political activist in Mainz, Germany for the Social Democrats and campaigned against the Nazi Party. When Hitler came to power and sought revenge against his political opponents, Friedrich Kellner moved his family to the small town of Laubach where he became the chief justice inspector in the district courthouse. He had access to police and prosecutors' records and trial documents. His open declarations against the miscarriages of justice caused him to be brought before a tribunal and threatened with imprisonment in a concentration camp. After that he spent his nights writing in a secret diary, at risk to his life, decrying the militarism of his countrymen and the insanity of their totalitarian leader.
