CDS/Honickman First Book Prize Finalist

The Honickman Foundation and the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University have combined to create a biennial book-publication prize for photographers from America and Canada who are engaged in personal projects of creative or social significance that do not have direct commercial interest. Winners of the CDS/Honickman First Book Prize in Photography receive a grant of $3,000, publication of a book of photography and inclusion in a website that features the prizewinners work. The winner is also given a solo exhibition at the Center for Documentary Studies and their prints will be placed in the Archive of Documentary Arts.
I’m honored to be one of thirteen finalists for the sixth biennial Honickman First Book Prize in Photography with an entry from my series Metro.
The competition required a portfolio of forty images, an artist statement with project details, and a brief biography. This year the thirteen finalists were selected by Kimberly Rorshach, director of the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University and the current vice president of the Association of Art Museum Directors. The finalists were then asked to submit ten sample prints from their portfolio. All of the materials will be sent to the juror Deborah Willis, Chair of the Department of Photography & Imaging at the Tisch School of Arts at New York University and a 2005 Guggenheim Fellow and Fletcher Fellow and a 2000 MacArthur Fellow. The winner of the prize will be announced in January 2013. Update: Information on the winner and finalists is now on the CDS website
