News about an exhibition in Indiana should make interesting reading for followers of award winning photography from around the world.

An exhibit opening this weekend at the Indiana State Museum explores the vast portfolio of a Pulitzer Prize-winning Hoosier photojournalist.

Bill Foley left Indiana in the 1970s and made his way to the Middle East, where he worked for the Associated Press.

While there he photographed Egyptian President Anwar Sadat just moments before his assassination and shot a series of photos after a massacre in a refugee camp in Beirut.

The exhibit “Art Meets News” includes more than 100 photographs.

Foley hopes those visiting the exhibit get a sense of the humanity in those photos.

“You might read about Beirut being crazy or Cairo being whatever, but you get the sense that people are people. People are people wherever they are,” Foley says.

The museum’s Chief Fine Arts Curator Mark Ruschman says the exhibit is a natural fit for the museum.

“We felt like it was the right time to tell this story. It’s a timely topic,” Ruschman says. “It’s a story about a Hoosier who was working on the world stage who is now back in Indiana sharing his knowledge with us.”

The exhibit opens Saturday.
