The 10 Most Exciting Photographers of the Last Year….

Dave Kennedy, Saint Peter from the series The Twelve

Tonight for my Photographic Exhibition class we were to attend a lecture by Norton Family Assistant Curator of Photography Dr. Rebecca Senf at the Phoenix Art Museum. Her lecture talked about  the work of 10 (but really 13) photographers she’s been introduced to in the last year. Many of the artists shown were introduced from jurying  portfolio reviews to artists who visited both the Phoenix Art Museum and the Center for Creative Photography in Tucson, AZ.

Ben Lowy, from the series Iraq Perspective

I’m constantly amazed with the endless possibilities photography is marking in the arts. The photographic medium is evolving rapidly and tonight we were given the opportunities to meet new faces in the field that contribute to this ever-ending progression. Dr. Senf presented emerging photographers as well as new work produced by established artists, from color to black/white, and from film-based to digital production.

Cheryl Hanna-Truscott, series from Protective Custody

I throughtly enjoyed her lecture and definitely wrote down her “hints and tips” for artist wanting to get the work seen.  Now, I really need to step up my portfolio for Philly, so no sleep for the next 3 weeks! 

There’s a list of the artists and their websites she shared:

  1. Thanks so much for posting this for those who toured the other photo galleries during the lecture. Good luck with your portfolio (and try to get a few hours of sleep, it helps to look at it with fresh eyes sometimes).
