Portfolio Showcase 10 Exhibition with Juror Hannah Frieser opens September 29th at the C4FAP

Union Street, Hudson, New York, 2016
White Car, Hudson, New York, 2016

Portfolio ShowCase 10 opens Friday, September 29th at the Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, CO including selections from Upstate chosen by juror Hannah Frieser, Director of the Center for Photography at Woodstock.

Hannah Frieser writes: Photography buildings can take many forms. Architectural photographers, for example, take excruciating care to right every angle and present every building in  its bare architectural facts.  In Tema Stauffer's images, however, buildings are never just buildings.  Instead they speak of years past and lives lived in them. The resulting images covey a strong sense of community. Stauffer further emphasizes community with portraits she interlaces into the series.  Many images are bathed in the rich light so familiar to Upstate New Yorkers, adding gravitas to the buildings' place in people's lives. As the backbone of neighborhoods, these buildings are here now, but is is clear as the light fades and the facades crumble that things are changing and that neither building nor people might not be here much longer.

I will be traveling to Fort Collins for the reception on Friday, October 20th from 5:30 - 7:30pm and portfolio reviews with Hannah Frieser and Hamidah Glasgow the following day.

23rd Griffin Museum Juried Exhibition and Boston Globe review

Fugary Fishing Shacks, Hudson, New York, Winter 3016
Fugary Fishing Shacks received an honorable mention from juror Hamidah Glasgow in the 23rd Griffin Museum Juried Exhibition opening July 13th.  The photograph was featured in a photography review by Mark Feeney for the Boston Globe:  "Most of the images are in color. Tema Stauffer’s understated use of it, in “Fishing Shacks, Hudson, New York,” is especially impressive, underscoring the sense of stillness in the scene. They’re cousin to Catherine Opie’s icehouses. That is high praise."
