When I was living in Ukraine (2 years, no heat, no internet, early aughts), my mom would forward me my New Yorker subscription every few months. First I’d find the $20 she’d stash in one of the issues, then I’d read all the cartoons and the fiction segments and then! cut out the photos I liked and glue them into a notebook I still have. It kept me sane. Anyway, the aunties and the prize news are on my favourite blog today, check it out! Also on the blog, my friend Anne Ling’s newest work!
Incredibly honored and happy to share my huge news with everyone! I was selected by Sandra S. Phillips, senior curator of photography at SFMOMA, to win the 2014 CDS/Honickman First Book Prize in Photography for the Aunties project. The book will be published in November 2015 by CDS Books and Duke University Press.
And some more online love from the Culture Trip. Busy week.
Will outlive us all.
Check out the latest Art Photo Mag — it’s a great issue. My work made it in, and it’s not even the Aunties!
