New Works: a light that shines

The origin of New Works is a humble one. It began in 1996 as a competition specifically for photographers of Puerto Rican heritage, encouraging them to create or complete an in-depth body of work “affirming cultural themes emanating from the Puerto Rican experience.” Its goal, was to nurture an artistic movement typically overlooked in American photography – a chance to write oneself into its traditionally anemic history…

The Convening

I am honored to participate in the Maine Media Workshop’s event, Convening: a critical dialogue on the history and future of media arts, alongside photographers and scholars I’ve greatly admired: Deborah Willis, Wendy Red Star, Lola Flash Danny Dawson and Hông-Ân Tru’o’ng.

Be your best brand

The Center for Photography at Woodstock launched its Professional Practices Artist Network (PPAN) series this fall, to help photographers and lens-based artists become active agents in their own success.  The business side of art is not something many are eager to embrace, and frankly, many dread its complexity or simply don’t know where and how […]

Thoughts on history, photojournalism and photo manipulation

Earlier this year, the news about the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) altering a photograph used to promote an exhibition, left me puzzled and incredibly disappointed. I couldn’t stop thinking about their reasoning, and its implications – still relevant today, as the world questions what to trust. Here is an article I wrote about […]

Habitat for Artists Residency at WAAM

I was recently awarded a residency at the Woodstock Artists Association and Museum as part of their Habitat For Artists (HFA) program – a chance for artists to work with the public and experiment with a new idea or further develop a project. My goal was to flip the narrative of exhibition curation, placing the […]

Saratoga Station Art Takeover

  About a year ago, a friend told me that I am a seeker. There is some truth to that, as visual storytelling is a combination of looking for something to share, and the other part is adventure. Two things I love deeply. This exhibition involves a seeking of sorts, as I meandered my way […]

Beekman Street Arts Fair 2017

Sunday, June 11, is the Beekman Street Arts Fair in Saratoga (NY) and I’m really excited to be there again, sharing some brand new artwork. I’ve been experimenting with photo transfers on wood thanks to an upcoming public art project for LARAC (nothing like the incentive of a deadline to get you moving), and am […]

Hunting with Hawks

I love the title of this article by Christopher McDougall. I also love that images from my series Hersteading: Cold Antler Farm were chosen to accompany his words in the New York Times. It is a short and insightful article with depth–not easy to do because Jenna Woginrich, the girl that hunts with hawks, is such a […]
