PHOTO FLOOD SAINT LOUIS
The members of Photo Flood Saint Louis have crisscrossed the entire city of St. Louis on foot in an effort to showcase the vibrant history, people and built environment that distinguish each neighborhood. Every month, a mixed group of professional and amateur photographers participates in a “Flood”, where they visit an area to document it in a surge of imagery. Before each Flood, a map is drawn and parameters are set for the group to cover. After the event, a selection of the best images is shared across the organization’s digital platforms with a brief history lesson on the featured neighborhood or location. This all contributes to a multifaceted portrait of the City that is ever-growing.
About the Organization
Formed in 2012, the mission of Photo Flood Saint Louis is to provide opportunities for photographers in St. Louis to build relationships and networks (both professional and personal), to learn new skills and develop new ideas, and to deepen their understanding of this place where they live.
