You as Angel

Jady Bates


“This series depicts the process we all go through in learning to love oneself. It is an awkward, joyful, illuminating, exhausting, humorous and messy affair. Rapprochement is a word I believe approaches this state. We each live with conflict inside due to a lifetime of internal struggle, even with the softening of the intensity. Through the journey to love oneself, we are fearful and angry as well as exalted and light. ‘As within, so without.’ This outer reflection of love impacts other people around us. This is the most direct way of changing the world. Find compassion. Be bold. Be revolutionary. Love yourself.”

Crin Blanc (White Mane): Horses of the Camargue

Sarah Corbin


This work is the culmination of Corbin’s three-year photographic study of the Camargue, an ecologically important region in southern France. Her focus is on the indigenous white horses that live in this region and are considered a treasure. Sadly, climate change is having a devastating effect in the Camargue. Corbin hopes that the gardians (caretakers of the horses) will find a way to keep their generations-old traditions and save these noble creatures.

I Am Here: The Lesbian Portraits

Robert Kalman


“Since the untimely death of my sister in 2006, I have sought a way to create a tribute to her memory and her personal struggle as a lesbian. In this series of photographs, I made formal street portraits of lesbian community members and asked them the question, ‘What’s life like for you right now?’ Their upbeat handwritten responses are paired with their portraits.”

David Kutz


“What is built, preserved or allowed to decay tells us a great deal about our values. The pictures in this project are similar in content, style and form to photographs of man-made landscapes dating back to the earliest days of photography. These representations of the cultural landscapes were found in many different places. They question the commonality of the environment built by different cultures. Are they archetypal or a result of globalization?”

Stepping Up—or Down

R. Wayne Parsons


“This conceptual work uses the vertical axis as a metaphor for value: higher is usually seen as better than lower across many dimensions. Ladders are used in the images as a way of symbolically conquering the vertical dimension. While the series is characterized by a veneer of offbeat even absurdist humor, underlying this flippant overlay are serious social, economic, political, even philosophical, issues.”

Almost Alive

Martin Rich


“Throughout history, man has replicated the form of the human body for religious, artistic and commercial purposes. So realistic are some that they can appear almost alive. Realistic or abstracted mannequins, surround us in shop windows, galleries, and museums. Intentionally or not they transmit messages triggering emotional responses. Feelings of desire, anxiety, and delight can be experienced. I am fascinated with mannequins and photograph the many ways they occur in our culture.”

Thinking of

Hans Weiss


“These intimate portraits—not taken face-to-face, but from behind—show family members and friends in very special and sometimes life-changing moments of their lives: My stepdaughter´s first day at high school in a foreign country, my 95-year-old mother after she had fallen in love, a woman who had just learned of her daughter´s suicide, my father-in-law on the day he started cancer therapy…”
