PR: 2015 PHOTOGRAPHERS’ FELLOWSHIP FUND

PRESS RELEASE:

Mark Lyon Awarded the 2015 Photographers’ Fellowship Fund.

The Center for Photography at Woodstock (CPW) is delighted to announce that Mark Lyon of Malboro, NY has been awarded the 2015 Photographers’ Fellowship Fund.

Vince Aletti, curator, writer, and Photography Critic at The New Yorker selected this year’s recipient for CPW’s prestigious honor. Lyon’s winning portfolio entitled Bay Views is an ongoing series that examines the relationship between self-service car wash bays and the adjoining landscapes.

Lyon was presented with the $2,500 fellowship on Thursday October 8th at CPW’s 2015 Vision Award and Benefit Auction held at Affirmation Arts in New York City.

This year’s applicant pool included submissions from over a dozen counties and nearly 50 towns, cities, and villages and 15 counties in upstate New York.

Aletti named Tim Freccia (Hudson, NY) the 2015 finalist. He will receive tuition 
scholarship towards a workshop at CPW in 2016; and Honorable Mention citations were given to Craig J. Barber (Woodstock), Anna Clem (Stone Ridge), Jordanna Kalman (Poughkeepsie), Jill Skupin Burkholder (Palenville), and Phil Underdown (Albany).

Juror Aletti remarked, With more than 80 entrants vying for this year’s Fellowship Fund awards, narrowing the field down to a single winner and one runner-up was a challenge. All the more so because the quality of the work was consistently high, a fact that’s reflected in my decision to name five honorable mentions–all photographers who had submitted work I did not want to go unrecognized. I was impressed with the wide range of approaches, technically and conceptually, and the intelligence and commitment that went into so much of the work I saw.

Steeped in Fluxus practice, which calls for the blurring of boundaries between the intersection of art, life, and ritual, Hillerbrand+Magsamen’s work incorporates humor, performance, photography, video, and everyday objects. They expand their personal life into a contemporary art conversation about family dynamics, suburban life, and American consumer excess.
