Santa Fe Prize for Photography

The White House – Platinum palladium, 18.5×16″

Beth has recently been told that she’s been nominated for the Santa Fe Prize for Photography, organised by Center.

The Santa Fe Prize for Photography recognizes and rewards a gifted and committed photographer who has completed, or is near completion of, a meaningful body of work. This prize was initiated to bring new work to light, and international photographers are eligible.

The award process is by nomination only; photographers cannot apply independently. The prize includes $5,000 and participation in Review Santa Fe; the cash award must be used to complete a body of work or to introduce a completed project to a larger audience.

Her body of work In the Garden is currently being shown at the Joseph Bellows gallery in La Jolla, CA and will be extended for three weeks until the end of March.

On the east coast, Beth will have work at Jen Bekman‘s booth during the Pulse art fair in New York, March 5 – 8th, and an exhibition of images from the project Ruins at Jen’s gallery April 9 – May 16th.



It’s one thing to see a fire-breather at an event where you’re a safe distance away, and another when you’re in a darkly-lit studio which is suddenly, and completely, illuminated with a whooosh of ignited fuel.

We were photographing Koren for a project Cy’s currently working on, and because there was no school that day (President’s Day) M&M were dragged screaming and kicking leapt at the chance to help out and assist. It didn’t take much of a fireball though for her to get everyone’s attention.
