    Hello Richard,
    Thanks for this informative report and photos:

    I just found your blog doing a search for the 180 exhibit.
    I was one of the amateur photographers on the stage and unfortunately could not take the group shot. If you happen to have one I would be interested in obtaining one too.
    Thank you,
    Jim

      I did take a group shot on stage. There should be a link at the bottom of the blog for more pictures on Facebook. Let me know if you cannot see yourself as I did a few closer shots which I didn’t upload.

      Congratulations on being selected.

        Thanks Richard, I do see one of my images from the exhibit, it is the one right next to Steve McCurry, that I called “The Broom”.

        I am not in the group shot you posted as I was the last one on the right side facing the audience.
        It would be your left side as you faced the stage. If you happen to have one that would be great!

        Thanks,
        Jim
