Honorable Mention
(Click on image for larger view)

Curator Anne Eder says, "Shine Huang’s Fishman is a gorgeous image in black and white, and while perhaps connecting to the theme of monsters somewhat tangentially, it feels folkloric and makes use of symbolism such as water, the fish, the moon, and the tower, all related to the unconscious and what may emerge from it, be that beauty or horror."

Shine Huang
 says, "What really scares you is not the monster you see, it’s your own fear. Monster is like a mirror reflecting deep inside of your mind. Don’t be scared, because fear is not supposed to shut you down, it wakes you up."

I WILL NOT COME TO TAKE... by Traci Marie Lee

Traci Marie Lee says of this work, "My own journey follows no such linear narrative. It started the moment I found the photograph but has meandered ever since, through uncharted research and to no obvious destination.-TACITA DEAN,Girl Stowaway, 1994

In this body of work I am appropriating slivers of images, text, and artifacts from the familial archive. There is an obstructed rationale of what a photographisanddoes, as well as a displacement of the contexts of photographic processes. Incorporating multiple image-making properties and practices, the process of how we contextualize a photograph's objectness and our associations in relationship to photographic material is exposed. The original content, the index, becomes secondary - taking its unaccustomed place on the peripheral of significance. Distinct passageways emerge and are found within the distillation of expectations and longings attached to any familial or institutional space."

Traci Marie Lee is a graduate of the Corcoran College of Art + Design in Washington, D.C., with a BFA in Fine Art Photography, as well as a Master in Fine Arts graduate with an MFA in Photography and Integrated Media from Lesley University College of Art & Design in Cambridge, MA. She is also the owner and photographer of Thread Photography - Fine Art Weddings.

In her work she is interested in the implications and consequences of the Snapshot and the Constructed Image on memory construction and preservation. The compulsion to excavate and curate leads to finding new methods of holding onto brief, constantly changing realities, as well as confronting her own tendencies and obsessive drive to collect, as a process of examining loss.

Each individual work incorporates alternative processes, such as the kallitype and collodion, as well as various methods of collage. These mediums string together disparate images and artifacts to create an entirely new, complex image.

The success of the Archive represents only half of the material – the half that has survived. The matter lays somewhere in between what is present and what is missing. Perhaps these instances are the keys – the markers connecting bodies and identities, generations and histories; the physical indication of an unidentified connection.
