MFA Graduation and Project Launch of "Anima"

On August 11, 2018, I graduated from the Hartford Art School's Limited Residency MFA Photography program. Our thesis exhibition, "Sustained Pause," featured my work alongside my talented classmates: Victor Alcantara, Jaclyn Brown, Mat Brutger, Paul Cohen, Alan Huck, Stuart Richardson, Rick Schatzberg, Marshall Scheuttle, Ernesto Solana, Antonis Theodoridis, and Alex Christopher Williams.

The exhibition included each artist's photo book dummy for their project. "Sustained Pause" marked the first time my thesis project, "Anima," was shared publicly. I printed and bound the book entirely by hand, so it only exists as a dummy for now. I'm excited to see what form it can and will take in the future!

Sustained Pause: THESIS EXHIBITION

I'm thrilled to announce the thesis exhibition for my MFA cohort, which will be on view at Joseloff Gallery in Hartford, CT this August. Details below!

2018 Thesis Exhibition
International Low-Residency MFA Photography Program, University of Hartford

“Sustained Pause” is a group exhibition presenting the work of twelve photographers, all from the 2018 graduating class of the International Low Residency MFA in Photography at the Hartford Art School - University of Hartford. The exhibition draws together a diverse range of approaches to the medium and its attendant subject matter, collectively demonstrating the abundance of our visual world in its varying states of wonderment, perplexity, and joy. The show will feature an array of portraiture engaged with the complexities of aging, trauma, and interpersonal relationships, along with work that shifts its focus to the natural world and our sometimes fraught relationship to it. Other artists included in the show move toward photography’s boundaries, employing it as a means of extending the formal practices of sculpture and essay-writing. Also on display will be a collection of book publications produced by the artists.

“Sustained Pause” features works by Victor Alcantara, Jaclyn Brown, Mat Brutger, Paul Cohen, Alan Huck, Molly Peters, Stuart Richardson, Rick Schatzberg, Marshall Schuettle, Ernesto Solana, Antonis Theodoridis, and Alex Christopher Williams.

As To Be Inaudible: Exhibition in Berlin

I'm excited to share that my MFA cohort has a group exhibition in Berlin at the C/O Berlin Education Center, curated by Jörg Colberg, opening on May 18. The title originates from the final line of "Mr. Cogito - Notes from the House of the Dead" by Polish poet Zbigniew Herbert.
