director’s letter

“I Really Don’t Care. Do U?” Our current First Lady’s fashion statement inspired a key question for us right now—what is needed to activate empathy? Our perspective is one from the public sector. In that, we often call upon empathy to answer the question non-profits are asked in pleas for funding “What problem are you solving?” and “How is this serving the public good?” In the last several decades we have seen an abundance of images containing problems of the world, and particularly before citizen journalism, being an agent of awareness was vital. There is inherent value in providing awareness regarding critical issues, which is very well covered by the various news outlets and publications. Additionally, through artist talks, books and exhibitions we can provide a more indepth look at these subjects. But often that’s where the life of the project ends. Which is unfortunate, as photography has great potential when partnered with the sciences, education and non-profit organizations in service to communities, environments, and issues that need attention. To ensure our work has the greatest impact we ask ourselves: What is the engagement strategy? To whom can this be useful? With whom can we collaborate to greatest effect? Let us work together in being solution oriented. Artists, storytellers, editors, publishers, exhibiting institutions, let us identify all of the potential applications of these photographic projects. Some are already working in this capacity and we will hear from several photographers, including Jess T. Dugan who will present her work on the elderly LGBTQ communities, Muriel Hasbun will discuss her work Stories of Migration, VII Agency photographer Tomas van Houtryve will discuss his work on the Mexican border, along with a dozen other award-winning photographers who will examine today’s critical issues during the Review Santa Fe Photo Festival artist talks. Please join us for these discussions and contribute to the next generation dialogue. Review Santa Fe is in its 18th year connecting photographic projects to diverse audiences. Please join us in the Land of Enchantment, October 1821, 2018, to celebrate and share our passion for photography in a historic city that offers an abundance of natural beauty and rich culture. We look forward to another exciting year of supporting photographic projects, witnessing one other, and working together to inspire transformation. — Laura Pressley, Executive Director, CENTER

The Drake

To Survive on This Shore: Photographs and Interviews with Transgender and Gender Nonconforming Older Adults

The United States often measures the severity of its drug crisis in overdose deaths which claimed 64,000 lives in 2016 alone, more than the entire death toll during the Vietnam War. Tamara Reynolds’ project The Drake gives an insider look into addiction, dominance and dependency. The artist writes that the project started with the dissatisfaction of the gentrification for the many neighborhoods in her hometown of Nashville, which led her to the historic Drake Motel. Although on a main thoroughfare it is overlooked by everyday commuters. Its location is prominent for the day workers, prostitutes and panhandlers to sustain a life in mainstream society, but only barely surviving. With evidence of progress impeding, displacement of the people who live in the area is likely. “This really is an epidemic of epidemics,” said Dr. Michael Brumage, the Charleston health department’s executive director. “The number of overdoses does not convey the full scope of the tragedy that’s playing out in front of us.” The Drake was the winner of the Project Launch Grant from Juror Sarah Hermanson Meister, Curator of Photography at the Museum of Modern Art.


Representations of older transgender people are nearly absent from our culture and those that do exist are often one-dimensional. For over five years, photographer Jess T. Dugan and social worker Vanessa Fabbre traveled throughout the U.S. seeking subjects whose lived through experiences that exist within the complex intersections of gender identity, age, race, ethnicity, sexuality, socioeconomic class, and geographic location. The resulting portraits and narratives offer a nuanced view into the struggles and joys of growing older as a transgender person and offer a poignant reflection on what it means to live authentically despite seemingly insurmountable odds. In addition to partnering with several non-profit entities working within the LGBTQ communities, the work is also part of the archives for research and preservation at The Kinsey Institute for Sex, Gender and Reproduction; Transgender Archives at the University of Victoria and Sexual Minorities Archives. To Survive on This Shore received the 2018 Project Launch Honorable Mention from Juror Sarah Hermanson Meister, Curator of Photography at the Museum of Modern Art.

CENTER is pleased to announce the solo exhibition Splendor and Misery: Photographs by Joel-Peter Witkin, opening October 5, 2018 at El Museo Cultural de Santa Fe Gallery. Witkin considers morality as central to his work. Drawing from a rich body of sources - literature, myth, and Renaissance and Baroque painting - he creates elaborate tableaux that explores perverse, erotic, and religious concerns. He collaborates with people often from the more extreme margins of society as his subjects. The image selection for Splendor and Misery: Photographs by Joel-Peter Witkin will include better known images as well as newer works that have rarely been shown. Up to 30 photographs and several drawings from the Joel-Peter Witkin collection will be on view.

“Just as the new objectivists were called degenerates for their express beliefs, my work will be recognized, hopefully in time, as one of the most significant presentations of mankind’s splendor and misery in the process of our craving the truth and the courage to live.” - Joel-Peter Witkin, from the book, Witkin & Witkin

JOEL-PETER WITKIN made his first photograph when he was eleven years old. At sixteen, one of his photographs was chosen by Edward Steichen, Curator of Photography at the Museum of Modern Art for its permanent collection. Witkin has achieved worldwide success and his work has been featured in countless international exhibitions, including The Brooklyn Museum, Interkamera in Prague, Picture Photo Space in Osaka and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Many of his pieces are held in various museum collections throughout the U.S. and Europe, including the Museum of Modern Art, The National Gallery of Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Bibliothèque Nationale de France. Thirty-one monographs have been published on his work. He has been awarded four National Endowments in Photography by the United States.

“The unexpected conversation, the searing image, the unforeseen opportunity, or the impact of hearing a fellow artist discuss his or her process can give artists bits of truth and provocation that tangle, battle, nurture, and ultimately make possible one’s own decisive and particular vision. Moments like these cannot be scheduled, but a place for their possibility can be created.” — Nancy Foley, founding organizer of CENTER




VIVIEN ALLENDER Global T(w)eens Curator’s Choice Award Third Place Juror: Lisa Hostetler, George Eastman Museum From the Artist Statement: “The Global T(w)eens Project is an ongoing artistic investigation that portrays 11-14 year-olds across the globe. Observing the sensitivities of these subjects through posture, gesture, gaze, attitude and clothing I document this young layer of our society, between childhood and adolescence, from places that may seem different and distant from one another. By placing the individual subjects’ side-by-side, country to country, difficult to identify, it opens the work to a different, more universal interpretation and raises questions for me about individuality vs universality.”

DIRK ANSCHÜTZ Fathers and Sons Producer’s Choice Award Third Place Juror: Keith Jenkins, NPR From the Artist Statement: “In many parts of our society views of fatherhood and manhood are shifting. A man’s role in his family and at work is being fundamentally reexamined and expanded. This creates new opportunities but also new responsibilities and anxieties. Often a development towards new tolerance also leads to a pushback on a private and political level. Meanwhile the way we as men are interacting with humankind is often deeply influenced by the father-son relationship.”

FATEMEH BAIGMORADI It’s Hard to Kill Director’s Choice Award First Place Juror: Naomi Cass, Centre for Contemporary Photography, Australia From the Artist Statement: “My parents have only a few photos of themselves from before the Islamic Revolution in Iran. My obsession with these photos, and with the photos we do not have, led to this project. A few years after the Islamic revolution in Iran, my father burned a number of photos that referenced his membership in that specific political party. He, and others, burned these photos due to the immediate risk of arrest. The act of disappearing photos was highly emotional, even if not rational in our Age of Mechanical Reproduction; the fear and anxiety that the society experienced at that time was acute.” 16

The 2018 Award & Grant winners travel to Santa Fe as part of the award package to present their work at the Review Santa Fe Photo Festival. Additionally, the projects will be in the exhibition Full Circle: 2018 CENTER Award Winners, curated by Mary Anne Redding, at the Turchin Center for the Arts December 7, 2018 – April 27, 2019. To learn more about the award winners, please join us to hear directly from the artists on Friday, October 19 and Saturday, October 20. Please check the website for the detailed speaking schedule.

MARCUS DESIENO No Man’s Land: Views From a Surveillance State Director’s Choice Award Second Place Juror: Naomi Cass, Centre for Contemporary Photography, Australia From the Artist Statement: “I hack and tap into surveillance cameras, public webcams, and CCTV feeds in pursuit of the ‘classical’ picturesque landscape and the sublime. These images interrogate how surveillance technology has changed our relationship to—and understanding of—landscape and place in the current geopolitical climate. The resulting visual product becomes dislocated from its automated origins and leads to an investigation of land, of borders, and power.”

ADAIR FREEMAN RUTLEDGE Azalea Trail Maids Editor’s Choice Award First Place Juror: Bridget Watson Payne, Chronicle Books From the Artist Statement: “Each year in my hometown of Mobile, AL 50 high school girls are selected for the century-old court of Azalea Trail maids. Clad in signature antebellum dresses, these bright, modern young women appear at civic events in smiling silence, despite being selected on merit – a beautiful but troubling reflection of national conversations on gender and race today.”

MURIEL HASBUN Stories of Migration Producer’s Choice Award Second Place Juror: Keith Jenkins, NPR From Lenscratch: “Hasbun’s expertise as an artist and as an educator focuses on issues of cultural identity and memory. Through an intergenerational, transnational and transcultural lens, Hasbun constructs contemporary narratives and establishes a space for dialogue where individual and collective memory spark new questions about identity and place.”




JEFFREY HEYNE To Hunt a Moon Curator’s Choice Award Second Place Juror: Lisa Hostetler, George Eastman Museum From the Artist Statement: “To Hunt a Moon explores a narrative of land ownership centered on the native peoples of the West, cattle ranches, the fledgling statehood of Colorado, and the new frontier opened up by the Apollo Moon missions. Summertime 1898, a group of 200 Ute Indians traveled from their reservation to their ancestral hunting grounds of western Colorado. To enforce the new state’s forestry laws protecting wildlife, the US Army was called in by the local game warden. The Ute hunting party conferred, and with the intimidating threat of US soldiers looming, the Ute acquiesced, and were escorted under armed guard back to their reservation. After almost 9,000 moons, this was probably the Ute’s last hunting party on their native lands.”

TOMAS VAN HOUTRYVE Divided Producer’s Choice Award First Place Juror: Keith Jenkins, NPR From the Artist Statement: “Since Baja and Alta California were divided by the seizure of Mexican land by the United States military in 1848, a political boundary has jutted into the Pacific Ocean. Over the years, the border has been reinforced from a simple line to a fence to steel barrier. ‘Today’s border is increasingly technological, a mixture of walls, fences and devices both seen and unseen to dissuade would-be crossers. Cameras, both on the ground and in the sky on drones, are at the heart of it all.’”

JODIE HULDEN Left Behind Editor’s Choice Award Third Place Juror: Bridget Watson Payne, Chronicle Books From the Artist Statement: “The town of Bodie, CA, an abandoned gold-rush town, heyday was during the latter part of the 19th century, but as the mining opportunities evaporated, the miners and other citizens had to abandon their life there... The recognition that these people, who lived such a hard-scrabble life in such a desolate place, were no different than human beings today, in that we all seek to surround ourselves and the corners of our lives with objects that are meant to give us support, comfort, ease and beauty in our daily lives.” 18

The 2018 Award & Grant winners travel to Santa Fe as part of the award package to present their work at the Review Santa Fe Photo Festival. Additionally, the projects will be in the exhibition Full Circle: 2018 CENTER Award Winners, curated by Mary Anne Redding, at the Turchin Center for the Arts December 7, 2018 – April 27, 2019. To learn more about the award winners, please join us to hear directly from the artists on Friday, October 19 and Saturday, October 20. Please check the website for the detailed speaking schedule.

VIKESH KAPOOR See You At Home Project Development Grant Winner Juror: Leslie Ureña, Smithsonian From the Artist Statement: “See You At Home is an ongoing personal narrative exploring the latent sense of loss from one’s heritage while aging as an immigrant in a non-native culture. Although they left India for a better life, like many immigrants from the East, the shift from a collectivist nation to an individualistic one led to isolation just as much as it led to freedom. As they grow old in Pennsylvania with both my sister and I no longer living there, my parents’ isolation only becomes more apparent to me, despite their successes in pursuit of the American Dream.”

ZOE PERRY-WOOD Hanging in the Balance, Portraits from the BAGLY Prom Director’s Choice Award Third Place Juror: Naomi Cass, Centre for Contemporary Photography, Australia From the Artist Statement: “BAGLY provides a safe haven for youth who are often, even in these progressive times, outsiders in their own youth culture and who may not yet have a foothold in adult gay culture. The images in this body of work reveal the delicate balance between youth vulnerability versus defensive self-protection as they grow up facing intolerance of their developing identities. The yearly BAGLY Prom fills the hole left when these youth are not allowed to attend, or don’t feel a sense of belonging at the traditional youth proms in their own high schools.”

AMBER SHIELDS Visions of Johanne – The Aging Female Body Editor’s Choice Award Second Place Juror: Bridget Watson Payne, Chronicle Books From the Artist Statement: “Historically, the aging female body has been marginalized in Western mainstream media. It is rarely seen, much less celebrated, and it remains virtually invisible to younger female generations. This exclusion not only maintains rigid ideas about beauty, ability, and health, but also disempowers and disengages women by stigmatizing a pivotal phase of life. Exposing and recording the physiological, psychological, and sociological experience of the aging woman by photographing my grandmother, Johanne, during the last 15 years of her life.” 18 19



The 2018 Award & Grant winners travel to Santa Fe as part of the award package to present their work at the Review Santa Fe Photo Festival. Additionally, the projects will be in the exhibition Full Circle: 2018 CENTER Award Winners, curated by Mary Anne Redding, at the Turchin Center for the Arts December 7, 2018 – April 27, 2019. Celebrating 15 years of dynamic programming, the Turchin Center for the Visual Arts at Appalachian State University engages visitors in creating unique experiences through active and accessible exhibition, education, and outreach programs. These events inspire and support a lifelong engagement with the visual arts providing opportunities for participants to learn more about themselves and the world around them. To learn more about the award winners, please join us to hear directly from the artists on Friday, October 19 and Saturday, October 20. Please check the website for the detailed speaking schedule.

JERRY TAKIGAWA Balancing Cultures Curator’s Choice Award First Place Juror: Lisa Hostetler, George Eastman Museum From the Artist Statement: “Balancing Cultures evolved to prompt conversations about racism, hysteria and economic exploitation in America. I came to understand my family’s (and my own) shame and to believe that our culture’s inability to live with paradox resulted in perilous polarities.”

MIKE WILLIAMS Eschaton Project Launch Honorable Mention Juror: Sarah Hermanson Meister, The Museum of Modern Art From the Artist Statement: “Strategically, the plutocratic end times of a mock republic are saturated in eschatology, one that twists war, natural disaster, man-made catastrophe, pestilence and poverty into welcome equalizers. The pallor of a new gilded age, envisioned in our darkest instincts, forces an anomalous concoction of hallucinatory revelation – a land of paradox, where pictures will do.”

HIGH ALTITUDE: 7,000 FEET ELEVATION Please keep in mind that Santa Fe is at 7,000 feet above sea level in what is considered the high desert. Santa Fe is higher than the “mile high city” of Denver. Altitude sickness is a problem that can occur when you travel to this elevation. The air at high altitudes contains less oxygen than at sea level, so your body has to work harder to get the oxygen it needs. Give your body time to adjust – even if you consider yourself to be physically fit. With altitude sickness, you may first feel like you have the flu (or a hangover…). Certain health factors can increase the risk of altitude sickness, including dehydration, heart disease, smoking, anemia, drinking too much alcohol, or chronic lung problems such as asthma or emphysema.
