Conversation
In a conversation with the Amon Carter’s Senior Curator of Photographs John Rohrbach, artist Anthony Hernandez will discuss his artistic process, his impetus for creating the series of photographs shown in the Amon Carter’s exhibition Discarded: Photographs by Anthony Hernandez, and the meaning behind his images of active development of the urban fringes.

After the program, Hernandez will be available to sign Discarded, a special-edition publication of his photographs (only 200 available through the Museum Store). The book is by Nazraeli Press and includes a short essay by John Rohrbach.

Reservations are required. Registration for this program opens March 1. Call 817.989.5030 or email visitors@cartermuseum.org to register.

This program is made possible by a gift from the late Anne Burnett Tandy.

Call for Entry | PDN presents The Curator

The search for undiscovered fine-art photographers is on through May 3.

Six new and emerging fine-art photographers will exhibit their work this summer at Foley Gallery in New York City through PDN‘s The Curator. The annual competition will also award each photographer with $200 to B&H and $250 to Moab Paper, plus a $3,500 award to one grand-prize winner.

One of last year’s winners, Amy Friend, was selected for her series “Dare alla Luce” (Italian for “to bring to the light”), through which she explores the relationship between presence and absence. Friend worked with a collection of vintage photographs retrieved from both personal and impersonal sources, altering each print with small holes through which she shines light, then subsequently re-photographing them. See more of her work, along with the other winning photographers from 2015, here.
