Private Memories in Public Places
The roadside memorials that dot our highways and city streets are a recent addition to the landscape. Although the practice of building these memorials was introduced by the Spaniards when they first settled New Mexico, it has evolved into a folk art that is not limited to a particular ethnicity or region.

Lauren Henkin
  Lauren Henkin
Displaced: Part II
“I think a big part of what I hope to do is pay homage to things we see everyday — toys we leave on the floor, dresses hanging in a closet, or trees growing besides dumpsters. The fun for me in taking pictures is when I am able to look closer, recognize the beauty that is present everywhere and then share that vision with others.” - Lauren Henkin

Dina Kantor

Finnish and Jewish
Today’s society is increasingly complex and multi-cultural. As our heritages blend, our identities are no longer definable by a generic social stereotype of community, but by our unique experiences and backgrounds. With these pictures, Kantor investigates the ways photography contributes to the construction of identity and community.

Panopticon
“When I came up with this project-- making images of the landscapes on the grounds of Nazi concentration camps-- I thought of the natural world bearing witness to the atrocities committed, and the ugliness that we wish we would find in those landscapes, as though they could herald the horror of what happened there.” Jessica M. Kaufman

Colleen Plumb   Colleen Plumb
Animals are Outside Today
“I began this project looking at fake nature, wondering what substitutions for nature can satisfy in people. Looking deeper I began photographing real animals and how they can be a link to a world far from the reality and pace of contemporary life, as well as providing an intangible link to a deeper world of instinct and rawness.” - Colleen Plumb
