Last week I covered Jim Goldblum (C’07, 34th Street)‘s story about his virtual Katrina Yearbook which CNN said, of all the press coverage and all the documentaries, it was “one of the best of the best.”
If that wasn’t cool enough, the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting had since commissioned Jim’s Yearbook 2006 team (Jim, his brother, and his staff photographer) to create a new interactive website called “Hope: Living and Loving with HIV in Jamaica.“
“The interactive follows poet Kwame Dawes as he returns to his country of Jamaica to meet and write about the people on the island living with HIV/AIDS. On the site you can read the poems and then see documentary photos, videos, and music, which allow you to meet the people who inspired Kwame’s beautiful words. The site has gotten great press in The Atlantic, Virginia Quarterly, Huffington Post, and Trendhunter.”
Jim’s documentary style reminds me of some of Loren Mendell’s (C’95) documentary work.
