Jon Feinstein, independent curator and co-founder of Humble Arts Foundation, served as juror and selected images for Best of Show and Honorable Mention awards. Laura D’Amelio took Best of Show and Honorable Mention went to Timmy Ok. Feinstein notes,
It was an honor to review thesis work by seniors from the Art Photography program at Syracuse University. While I didn't have the opportunity to see it develop over the course of the year, diving in makes me want to know more, to spend more time with each series, to see it continue to grow and evolve. The photographs in this exhibition demonstrate a thoughtful range of approaches, from Honorable Mention Timmy OK's mysterious yet empathetic portrait of his brother to Sabrina Toto's sad yet optimistic photos of her newly divorced parents. I selected Laura D’Amelio as Best in Show. D’Amelio photographs objects that she finds in repo'd cars, whether it's discarded family photos or a weathered Spalding Basketball, transforms them into living portraits. Congratulations to all of the photographers on their thoughtful and sophisticated work.
Many students work with Light Work throughout their undergraduate careers and become an integral source of the energy, passion, and excitement that define our organization. The Light Work staff and community congratulate all of these young artists on their accomplishments and wish them the best in their bright futures in the field of photography.
