Visiting Artist: Jonathon Wells

Author: Maggie Flanigan

Guest artist, Jonathon Wells, will be giving a lecture in the Photo Lighting studio on on Thursday, February 23, starting at 5:45 (light refreshments first, and we’ll start at 6:00). Jonathon Wells is a geologist who made a mid-career detour to become an artist (and now he has two careers). He makes photo-geologic composites that are part map, part photograph, part visualization of a world that’s normally inaccessible and wholly invisible. I find them fascinating in and of themselves, but they also serve as a starting point for an investigation into what’s happening in the world of energy extraction and fracking. Read More

Author: Kayla Cropper

Peripheral views from the Parthenon, bearing Aristotle’s definitions of democracy in his “Politics” written through the code of punch cards. When Dimitra Ermeidou (MFA Photography '13) first received the email informing her that she was a winner in Dave Bown Projects 7th Semiannual Competition, she did not realize that she had won the $5,000 Grand Prize. "I was really surprised and happy, and then I realized that I was the grand prize winner and that was really crazy," Ermeidou said. "I just felt that this was very satisfying. That my efforts go somewhere, that there's a response, there's feedback, and that feedback is great." Read More

Photography Student Works on Susquehanna River Project

Author: Kayla Cropper

After taking her first darkroom class in high school, Havre de Grace native Hannah Close fell in love with photography. When she decided to further her education, Close found that Tyler's Photography Department was a fit for her. "I wanted to be further away from home than Baltimore, and Philly is a great city," Close said. "Both of my parents went to Temple, plus Tyler was a beautiful, brand new facility. By far the nicest facilities of any of the art schools I applied to." Now Close is a senior and has recently been awarded both a Diamond Peers Teaching Award and a CARAS Project Grant. With the grant, Close was awarded $1,900 to spend next semester assisting with research and production on a project at the Susquehanna River. Read More

The 24th annual award is given in recognition of the support for photography and photography education in the Philadelphia region.
