Eli Meir Kaplan clinches first place in portrait category of the 2023 National APA Awards

by | Aug 26, 2023

Eli Meir Kaplan has been awarded the first-place spot in the Portrait category of the 2023 National APA Awards. Kaplan’s winning image captured the essence of Lenneal Henderson, a participant in the 1968 Poor People’s Campaign at the National Mall.

Organized by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, but led by Ralph Abernathy after King’s assassination, the Poor People’s Campaign sought to shed light on the pressing issues of poverty, economic inequality, and racial justice that plagued the nation.

Kaplan’s image was originally photographed for Smithsonian Magazine in 2018, but was an outtake he rediscovered this year.

The American Photographic Artists (APA) is a prominent national organization that is managed by and caters to professional photographers. The organization’s primary goal is to enhance the landscape for photographic artists and facilitate their achievements within the industry.

Eli Meir Kaplan is a Capitol Communicator sponsor.
