Tallahassee Museum Features Photography of FAMU Journalism Professor

The Tallahassee Museum will display the photography of Florida A&M University journalism professor Michael Abrams in the “A Passion for Flowers” exhibit from September 2008 through January 2009.

“I was surprised and gratified when the Tallahassee Museum asked me to present my photography after viewing my work on the web,” said Abrams.

The exhibit features natural and supernatural wildflower and insect photography. Some of the photographs show natural repose; other images are enhanced by computer algorithms. They are printed on various types of paper including fine art and canvas, with 200-year-old archival ink.

Abrams’ photographs are of Florida wildflowers, some of them endangered species, such as the night-blooming wild petunia and hexalectris (crested) orchid. Most of the photographs were digitized from slides taken over a 15-year span, and other photographs were taken digitally.

Professor Abrams teaches communication law and is the director of graduate studies at the FAMU School of Journalism and Graphic Communication. Some of his photographs are located on the award-winning website
