When the city of Trenton welcomed the Missouri Photo Workshop back to town it joined a pretty exclusive club. After hosting the workshop in 1995, Trenton became only the 16th town to host MPW for a second time. Even more generous was how warmly the community embraced these 44 photographers, 11 faculty and a 20-member contingent of staff and crew from the University of Missouri.
We thank the people of Trenton for opening their lives and their homes to us. Our immersion in this town has benefited us as we work to become better visual storytellers, and we hope it has enriched the community of Trenton.
The Missouri Photo Workshop has been documenting small town America for over six decades.
