2007 JURIED EXHIBITION WINNERS

Newspace Center for Photography is pleased to present an exhibition of photographs by the top three selections from our 2007 National Juried Exhibition. The Exhibition was juried by Darius Himes, co-founder of fine photography book publisher Radius Books.


JOHN MANN
Folded in Place

[artist website]

Following five years of photographing the landscape and those who travel through it, Folded In Place is an exploration of place though a visualization of the map as the final destination. Mann’s images turn the abstract representation of the map back into a physical landscape, by looking at the map as a geography of its own.

John Mann has a BFA from Arizona State University and an MFA from the University of New Mexico.


ALEX EMMONS
Fieldtrips Home

[artist website]

Alex Emmons received her Bachelor of Arts at Denison University and her MFA in Photography at Arizona State University where she studied with Bill Jenkins and Mark Klett. Emmons has traveled and lived abroad extensively, which has informed her investigation of the intersection of domestic space and the agencies of displacement. Like a post-colonial anthropologist, her work stems from a series of intimate connections with the lives she brushes up against.

The outcomes of her projects move between photography, digital media, artist books and installations. Emmons is represented by Alan Klotz Gallery in New York City and her work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally. She currently lives in Ellensburg, Washington and teaches photography and digital imaging at Central Washington University.



TAKAKO KIDO
Re-explorations

[artist website]

Takako Kido grew up in Shikoku, one of Japan’s southern islands. Her work is informed and inspired by the peace and natural beauty of Japan’s coast. She photographs with an f/158 panoramic pinhole camera ? which often necessitates exposures as long as thirty minutes. As a result, Kido’s imagery has a lovely, painterly quality, elements of motion, and a sense of the slow passing of time.

She studied at the International Center of Photography in New York. Kido currently lives in Japan.
