Rfotofolio Award

Otherworld 008

I am so grateful to both Christopher James and Rfotofolio for choosing my project, Otherworld, for the Rfotofolio Award, in the 2022 Denis Roussel Award. Thank you!

Otherworld uses photographs taken in the upper Midwest to render possible models of the Earth-like planets currently being sought by NASA’s Kepler mission, and it also references the mythologies of many cultures that establish a land that is home to spiritual beings or the dead. These mythical other worlds of hope or doom often share characteristics with our familiar earthly landscapes, and I am using photographs of real places to suggest realms that may or may not exist. The images use barren terrains to suggest the earth-like landscapes photographed by rovers and other missions in space.

More images and information about the project can be found here.

FRESH 2022

I’m really happy to say that my Otherworld series has been selected by Klompching Gallery, in New York City, to be one of the finalists in FRESH 2022!

Finalists are selected on the basis of having demonstrated a strong vision, excellence in craftsmanship, and potential to expand and grow their creative practice. Of the photographers, some are already known, whilst others are just beginning to carve out their place within the contemporary art scene. Well-resolved projects sit beside those that are just beginning to be fleshed out. Wherever they are in their state of production, each Finalist’s creative practice shows great promise for contributing to dialogues about contemporary photographic practice.
