An American Rite of Passage
This chapter looks at Barnstorm, an annual workshop in upstate New York that brings together a hundred young photographers and many of the US image industry's “heavies.” It consisted of two types of activities: those that focused on photography as a profession, or even vocation, and those that focused on each student's individual development. Barnstorm 2003 was the last led by its charismatic founder, photojournalist Eddie Adams, before his death. It was also the first Barnstorm after the beginning of the American war in Iraq and brought together many photographers who had taken iconic war photographs—from Joe Rosenthal and his Flag Raising at Iwo Jima to Nick Ut and his image of a young Kim Phuc and her napalm burns.
