“Untitled III, Quincy MA” | 36″x24″ | Archival Pigment Print

Victoria Crayhon, a Fulbright Scholar and an Aaron Siskind Fellow, is based in Providence, RI and teaches at University of Massachusetts. She holds an MFA in Photography from RISD and a BFA from Tisch School of the Arts, New York University. Her work is included in museum, corporate and private collections, among them The Museum of Fine Arts Houston, the Harvard/Fogg Art Museums, and Citigroup NYC. Publications include the British Journal of Photography, Fraction Magazine, La Journal de la Photographie, Fade to Black, Art/Photo Magazine, the New York Times and The Photo Review 2011. Her project, Thoughts on Romance from the Road, is featured on The Fence in Atlanta, Brooklyn and Boston.

Thoughts on Romance from the Road is an ongoing project that uses photography to document text interventions on roadside marquee signs. I place phrases on movie and marquee signs. Many of these I find through research, but also in the course of my frequent long distance travel by car. I use my own sign letters and leave the scene with the words left intact upon the sign. Before I depart, I make a photograph from the sidewalk or the roadside. I then make large-scale color prints as documents of the sign in its environment. The photograph becomes the sole remnant of the project as the letters inevitably disappear or are taken down. The work addresses the effects of media and technology upon human memory and desire.

ACP Auction Preview: Ones2Watch – Stephanie Dowda

We Will Find Our Way | 20×24 | Silver Gelatin Print

The natural world holds emotions and memories. Topophilia is a photography project exploring the powerful sensations humans experience from our natural environments and inspired by the eponymous geography theory as defined by Yi-Fu Tuan. My intentionally manipulated medium-format film camera is a vessel to capture the sensation from these locales–for example state and natural parks which preserve the land’s history. Topophilia understands these intangible sensations and shares them through a transference of energy from place, to film, and finally to the silver that holds light for the viewer.

Stephanie, a native Atlantan, believes in the transcendental nature of the camera and explores the theory of Topophilia in her work. She has exhibited widely in Atlanta, with recent solo exhibition at Get This Gallery and currently at Arnold, Golden, Gregory Gallery through the ACP Festival. Publications include Oxford American, ArtsATL, BurnAway, Bad At Sports, Creative Loafing and Atlanta Magazine. Dowda is a Studio Artist at The Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, a Hambidge Fellow, Cabin Time Fellow and was a finalist for the 2014 Baum Award for a New American Photographer.

Chrysanthemums (detail), Corolla | 20×24 | C Print

I often gravitate to the natural beauty of the world, especially its colors. For this series, Corolla, I wanted to focus on the texture and form of flowers by removing all the color so that I could appreciate the nuanced shapes of something I see every day.

Daniel Seung Lee is a commercial and editorial photographer based in New York City. Daniel’s work focuses on found beauty in his immediate surroundings, whether it is the natural form of trees, interesting faces he comes across or those fleeting moments of beautiful light. His work has been featured in numerous publications including Beautiful/Decay, Feature Shoot, Mashable and Huffington Post. In his floral still life series, Corolla, flowers are stripped of color to further accentuate nuances of texture and form.

ACP Auction Preview: Ones2Watch – Sophie Barbasch

As we ramp-up to the ACP Photography Auction on Friday, and while bidding’s open on the live auction items over on Paddle8, we wanted to introduce you to the artists included in Ones2Watch, the silent auction portion of the evening, curated by Mary Stanley Studio.

Barbasch_skeleton_900



Skeleton | 16″x20″ | Digital C Print

Breathing at the Bottom of the Sea is about curiosity and upheaval.  The images depict everyday events that point to larger struggles and incongruities. The pictures of people, objects, and animals floating in space, of suspended leaves and loose puzzle pieces, embody this fragmented experience. Crooked frames and disrupted, decaying surfaces point to a collective scattered existence.  An unseen force has acted upon each entity and interrupted its natural state.

Sophie earned her MFA in photography from the Rhode Island School of Design and her BA in Art and Art History from Brown University. Selected residencies include the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, the Blue Mountain Center and Kimmel Nelson Center for the Arts. Selected publications and awards include The Atlantic Online, Conveyor Magazine, and Photo Boite’s 30 Under 30 Women Photographers. She sees her work as a series of stories about curiosity and upheaval, depicting everyday events that point to struggles and incongruities. She lives and works in NYC.
