2015 Inge Morath Award Announced

2015 Inge Morath Award Winner Announced

The Inge Morath Foundation and The Magnum Foundation are pleased to announce the recipient of the 2015 Inge Morath Award. Each June, the winner of the Inge Morath Award is selected by the membership of Magnum Photos during the annual Magnum meeting. The Award of $5,000 is given by the Magnum Foundation, in cooperation with the IM Foundation, to a woman photographer under the age of 30, to support the completion of a long-term documentary project. The recipient of the 2015 Inge Morath Award is Danielle Villasana (US), for her proposal “A Light Inside”. The finalist for the IM Award is Sofia Valiente (US), for her proposal “Miracle Village”. Danielle Villasana Born in Texas, Danielle Villasana double-majored in photojournalism and Spanish at the University of Texas, graduating in 2013. In 2014, she co-founded Everyday Latin America on Instagram, which forms part of The Everyday Projects, a movement founded by Peter DiCampo and Austin Merrill to combat stereotypes in traditional media. She is an alumna of the Eddie Adams Workshop, and was an attendee at the 2015 New York Portfolio Review. She is currently based out of Lima, Peru. For her proposed project for the Inge Morath Award, Villasana writes: “In Peru, a country with a highly machismo, conservative, religious and transphobic culture, transgender women are extremely marginalized and discriminated by society. Persecution begins early at home and school, causing them to abandon their families and studies.” A Light Inside aims to combat stereotypes of transgender women as hyper-sexualized objects, and explores the complexities of gender identity, pain and rejection. Villasana will use the Inge Morath Award to create more stills and collect interviews for transgender education and community engagement collaborations. “I believe it’s important to work with them not only so that their voices are included but also as a way to empower them through self expression” Villasana writes. Via a low cost pop-up outdoor exhibit in Lima, transwomen will also have an opportunity to speak to majority of Limeños, who may not be able to purchase a book, have access to a gallery or internet. Sofia Valiente is a US photographer, whose “Miracle Village” documents the lives of 12 individuals in a community in South Florida, home to over 150 sex offenders. “Everything in the village is transparent: everyone knows the worst of each other” writes Valiente. Founded five years ago by a Christian ministry, the village seeks to help individuals that have no place to go when they leave prison. The proposals of Danielle Villasana, Sofia Valiente, and selected

Inge Morath – Masquerades at Danziger Gallery

PRESS RELEASE
Inge Morath – Masquerades & Enoc Perez – Cut Shapes May 7 – June 13, 2015

Danziger Gallery is pleased to present a two-person show of photographs by Inge Morath and photo collages by Enoc Perez. Created half a century apart, both works share a sense of humor, an interest in concealment, and a delight in cutting and making shapes out of paper.

Inge Morath (1923 – 2002) and artist Saul Steinberg (1914 – 1999) engaged in a unique collaboration by having friends and acquaintances don his paper bags drawn with fantastic faces and then posing them for her photographs. In a delightful series of individual and group portraits taken from 1959 to 1963 the images convey both humor and an unnerving psychological depth. We may not know who is beneath each bag, but we seem to know the type they are playing. Between Morath’s deadpan style and Steinberg’s flights of fantasy they created a veritable encyclopedia of attitudes, postures, and mannerisms.

Inge Morath joined the photographic cooperative Magnum in Paris by invitation of Robert Capa in 1953 and was assistant to Henri Cartier-Bresson before becoming a full member. Her work was widely published in magazines, including Life, Paris Match, and Vogue, and in numerous books.

Ms. Morath was married to Arthur Miller and they had one daughter, the film director Rebecca Miller. In 2015 the Bienecke Library at Yale acquired the bulk of the Inge Morath Estate.

Enoc Perez was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico in 1967. He currently lives and works in New York. Known primarily for his multi-layered paintings of modernist buildings, throughout his twenty year career the artist has nevertheless engaged with a variety of subjects that appeal to him from voluptuous nudes to still lives of Don Q rum bottles.

Enoc Perez’s new photo collages engage with social media, appropriation, and the artist’s consistent and inventive search for new forms. Sourcing images from the internet of minimally dressed or nude women, from amateur selfies to more professional photos, Perez adds hand painted and cut collaged forms to both obscure and enhance the picture.

The cutout shapes function as censor’s marks – thwarting our ability to see the original image in its entirety while making it all the more attention-grabbing and voyeuristic. At the same time the collaged bits make it into a happy game, playful colors and forms replacing a need for more visual information and reminding the audience of the artist’s role in directing and delivering fresh ways of seeing.

Enoc Perez’s work belongs to the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Corcoran Art Gallery, and the Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami, among other significant institutions throughout the United States. The first complete monograph on his work was published by Assouline in 2013.

The Inge Morath Award, 2015

[sspdc content=7423 link=lightbox format=post]

The Magnum Foundation and the Inge Morath Foundation announce the 14th annual Inge Morath Award. The Award of $5,000 is given to a female photographer under the age of 30, to support the completion of a long-term documentary project. One Award winner and up to two finalists are selected by a jury composed of Magnum photographers and the director of the Inge Morath Foundation. Inge Morath was an Austrian-born photographer who was associated with Magnum Photos for nearly fifty years. After her death in 2002, the Inge Morath Foundation was established to manage Morath’s estate and facilitate the study and appreciation of her contribution to photography. Because Morath devoted much of her enthusiasm to encouraging women photographers, her colleagues at Magnum Photos established the Inge Morath Award in her honor. The Award is now administered by the Magnum Foundation as part of its mission of supporting the next generation of socially-conscious documentary photographers, in cooperation with the Inge Morath Foundation.

2014 Inge Morath Award Announced

2014 Inge Morath Award Winner Announced

The Inge Morath Foundation and The Magnum Foundation are pleased to announce the recipient of the 2014 Inge Morath Award.

Each June, the winner of the Inge Morath Award is selected by the membership of Magnum Photos and the Director of the Inge Morath Foundation during the annual Magnum meeting. The Award of $5,000 is given by the Magnum Foundation, in cooperation with the IM Foundation, to a woman photographer under the age of 30 to support the completion of a long-term documentary project. The recipient of the 2014 Inge Morath Award is Shannon Jensen (US), for her proposal “A Long Walk.” The finalist for the IM Award is Elodie Chrisment (France), for her proposal “Pleasure Places – Paris.”

Born in Bethesda, MD, Shannon Jensen studied economics at the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, graduating in 2007. From 2009 – ’11, she worked as a photojournalist based in Nairobi, Kenya, and is a featured contributor to Reportage by Getty, having started on their Emerging Talent roster in 2011. She has received numerous awards, including from Amnesty International, Pictures of the Year International, and Days Japan. Among others, her work was screened at the LOOK3 Festival of the Photograph, and is included in the Open Society Foundation’s 2014 Open Walls exhibition. She is currently based between London and Seoul.

In her successful proposal for the Inge Morath Award, Jensen writes that

she was present at the border of Blue Nile during an exodus of 30,000 refugees driven from their homes by conflict. After months of travel, they crossed South Sudan’s northern border, carrying little more than the stories of lives and possessions lost and the clothing on their backs. Facing the impossible task of telling their stories, “A Long Walk” asks the viewer to put him or herself in the shoes of those refugees. In fact, each photograph is of a pair of shoes, accompanied by brief biographical information and the distance traveled. “The incredible array of worn-down, ill-fitting, and jerry-rigged shoes formed a silent testimony of the arduous nature of the trek, the persistence and ingenuity of their owners, and the diversity of these individuals thrown together by tragic circumstance” Jensen writes. She will use the Inge Morath Award to return to Africa to conduct interviews, which will be used to add short texts to her photographs before publishing them.

Finalist Elodie Chrisment is a Paris-based photographer, whose “Pleasure Places – Paris” examines the non-programmed architectural spaces of prostitution in the Bois de Boulogne. “That’s where the first steps of architecture and construction occur,” she writes, “through these marginalized women deep in the woods, right by the walking paths used by normal people living in the very nearby capital.”

The proposals of Shannon Jenson, Elodie Chrisment, and selected other applicants will be presented in IM Magazine during 2014/15, launching in September ’14.

Thanks to all who applied for the 2014 Award. The winner was selected by the attending members of Magnum Photos on June 28th, 2014 in New York, at the annual Magnum meeting. A total of 81 submissions were presented by the Inge Morath Foundation, which also participated in the selection. We were pleased to have had the opportunity to look at your photographs, and wish you the best for your future work. All applicants who meet the Award guidelines are encouraged to re-submit their work for consideration in 2015.

2013 Inge Morath Award Announced

2013 Inge Morath Award Announced

The Inge Morath Foundation and The Magnum Foundation are pleased to announce the results of the 2013 Inge Morath Award deliberations. The IM Award is administered by the Magnum Foundation, in cooperation with the Inge Morath Foundation, and is given annually to a woman photographer under the age of 30, to support the completion of a long-term documentary project.

Because of an error by the Foundation regarding eligibility requirements, the Award will not be made to the winner selected by this year’s jury. The Foundation regrets its error, and apologizes to the applicants.

In addition to the winner, the jury selected Lauren Pond (US) as finalist, for her project, “Faith and Its Price.” Ms. Pond’s proposal will be presented in full in IM Magazine, the web-based publication of the Inge Morath Foundation, in September, 2013.

Lauren Pond, 27, is a graduate student at Ohio University in Athens. “Faith and Its Price,” is a study of the Pentecostal Sign Followers, a Protestant denomination based in Appalachia whose members handle venomous snakes during worship. Pond was present for the death by snake-bite, in 2012, of Pastor Randy “Mack” Wolford, and has begun documenting the rise of Pastor Andrew Hamblin, who was mentored by the late pastor. In her proposal Pond writes: “Sharing this traumatic experience and the difficult emotions that it stirred – despair, anger, guilt, and eventually, forgiveness – with the Signs Following community reminded me of the fundamental humanity that connects us, regardless of our different religious beliefs. I will complete ‘Faith and Its Price’ in this frame of mind, hoping to generate greater understanding of serpent-handling by portraying it on a human level. In the wake of tragedy, what do we learn from our experiences,
and how do we persist in what we do and believe?”

2012 Inge Morath Award Announced

2012 Inge Morath Award Winner Announced

© Isadora Kosofsky from "The Three," 2012The Inge Morath Foundation and the The Magnum Foundation are pleased to announce the recipient of the 2012 Inge Morath Award.

Each June, the winner of the Inge Morath Award is selected by the full membership of Magnum Photos, and the Director of the Inge Morath Foundation, during the annual Magnum meeting. The Award of $5,000 is given by the Magnum Foundation, in cooperation with the IM Foundation, to a female photographer under the age of 30, to support the completion of a long-term documentary project. The recipient of the 2012 Inge Morath Award is Isadora Kosofsky (US), for her proposal Selections from “The Three” and “This Existence.” The finalists for the IM Award were Maria Pleshkova (RU), for her project Days of War: A Pillowbook, and Carlotta Zarattini (IT), for her project The White Building.

Kosofsky is 18 years old, and began her work with the elderly after the death of her grandmother, who raised her. “Grief following my grandmother’s death led me to document the lives and relationships of the elderly, particularly women, in Los Angeles over the course of four years,” Kosofsky writes. She will use the Award to continue that project, and also to expand it. “I seek to further develop my documentation, and The Inge Morath Award will permit me to do so. I wish to not only expand my existing narratives but also to document the elderly in France, a different cultural setting.”

© Isadora Kosofsky from "The Three," 2012Isadora Kosofsky’s winning proposal will be presented in full in IM Magazine, the web-based publication of the Inge Morath Foundation, in September, 2012, followed by the proposals of the finalists, Maria Pleshkova and Carlotta Zarattini. Kosofsky’s project “The Three” was featured in Le Monde in June 2012, and on TIME Lightbox in May. She was nominated in 2010 for the prize for “Single Editorial Image,” and in 2009 for “Social Documentary Essay,” at the 2010 New York Photo Festival. Kosofsky also founded the Photo-dialectic therapy: Photographic Documentation Project, at the Los Angeles Ronald McDonald House, to engage chronically ill children and their families through photography. The program was in operation from 2008 – 10.
