The Photo Review Competition 2012

Cathy, Market Street, Paterson, NJ, 2011

I'm happy to announce that my portrait of Cathy on Market Street in Paterson received Third Prize in The Photo Review Competition 2012 juried by Peter Barberie, Curator of Photographs at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The portrait will be included in an exhibition this fall along with the other prize-winning photographs at Philadelphia's University of the Arts Gallery 1401. Thank you to Peter Barberie, Photo Review Editor Stephen Perloff, and Richard Newman at Calumet Photographs for supporting the competition and contributing prizes.

This same portrait is also currently a semi-finalist for the Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition 2013 through the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery, decision pending later this fall.

Both the portrait of Cathy and another subject in the Paterson series, Jorge, will be published in The Photo Review Competition issue this winter.

The White Album

Album, Magazine für Fotografie, a bi-annual publication curated and produced by photographers, recently released an intriguing third issue in print, The White Album. The issue presents work by international photographers who approach ideas of disappearance.

The white, the erased, the disap­pearing, the disin­te­gra­ting, the scat­tered, the neboulsly shape­less, the dissol­ving, the outs­hined, the invi­sible, the not yet visible, the minimal, the rudi­men­tary, the dimi­nished, the disguised, the inde­pic­table, the long forgotten, the lost.
