This exhibition of photographic based work from 14 CCAD students in Shannon Benine’s Digital Imaging class explores and examines the relationship between memory and photography.
Memory is an enigma, inconceivable in its entirety. It is a connection to our past in the most literal sense – a moment or years frozen in time. Our memories stand as a vital part of our being; it collectively forms who we are today and who we will remain to be in the future. It is quantitative and qualitative, non-material and non-physical. For us, memory is photographs. More so, the photograph is the vessel of memory. As photographers, we are explorers of memory – trekking the journey across time, space and sense.
I am excited to say that I have been nominated and accepted to be on the ballot for the 2013 – 2017 Society for Photographic Education (SPE) National Board of Directors Election! If you are a member of SPE be sure to vote for me, the last day to vote is November 30th (so you have a bit more time than the Presidential election).
SPE student members can apply for scholarships to offset the cost of attending SPE’s 2013 SPE National Conference in Chicago March 7-10, 2013.
All awards include a 2013 national conference fee waiver and a one-year membership to SPE.
Ten SPE Awards are offered and feature a $500 travel stipend to attend the national conference.
The SPE Award for Innovations in Imaging in Honor of Jeannie Pearce
Open to all eligible students working primarily with digital technology and is designated for work only possible because of emerging digital technologies-no alternative processes or gelatin silver prints. A project description describing how the work is possible as a result of emerging digital technologies is required as part of the submission process. Jurors will seek to award work that demonstrates the most innovative, unique, and freshest uses of digital technologies.
This year’s jurors are SPE national board members serving on the Awards and Recognition Committee: Lupita Murillo Tinnen (Chair), Sama Alshaibi, Dornith Doherty, Dennis Keeley and Betsy Schneider.
