2019 - Big Year
2019 saw significant recognition for my work!
- The More That Is Taken Away was awarded a 2019 Guggenheim Fellowship in Photography. This substantial support is enabling me to focus on completing the project. I'm editing a short feature-length movie from the video and photographs, planned to launch in 2020. I'll be making prints of the photographs and an artist book, using alternative processes and/or photogravure, which I will be exploring soon.
- The same work also garnered a 2019 New York Foundation for the Arts NYSCA/NYFA Fellowship, but in the category of Architecture, Environmental Structures, and Design. I was pleased the project received this cross-disciplinary recognition. The unrestricted funding will be used to explore a new project.
- The New York State Council on the Arts supported the video editing with a NYSCA Individual Artist grant.
I'm honored, delighted, and inspired by these awards and look forward to bringing this long-term work to fruition and to public view in the near future.
