“The Foundation’s Individual Photographer’s Fellowship (IPF) program encourages and celebrates artistic achievement in contemporary photography by supporting the creative endeavors of artists working in photography and photo-based art media.
The Aaron Siskind Foundation is offering a limited number of IPF grants of up to $10,000 each, for artists working in photography and photo-based art. Recipients will be determined by a panel of distinguished guest judges on the basis of artistic excellence, accomplishment to date, and the promise of future achievement in the medium in its widest sense. The Foundation seeks to support artists/photographers who demonstrate a serious commitment to the field, who are professionally active or employed in the field.
Who May Apply: U.S. Citizens and Legal Permanent Residents of the United States, who reside in the U.S., and who are at least 21 years of age. Recipients must provide legal proof of eligibility and a verifiable social security number.
Who May Not Apply: Students enrolled in a college degree program. Students who graduate before the 2013 application deadline are eligible to apply. Previous IPF recipients are not currently being considered for new awards. At this time, artists on temporary visas such as the O-1 visa are not eligible to apply.
Eligible Work: Still photography regardless of subject matter, genre, or process. Works submitted may be traditional photography projects or experimental works, but photographic techniques must be pivotal to the works submitted. The submission should consist of a mature, coherent body of work. Examples of Non-Eligible Work: Film, video, interactive multimedia.
- Applicant Profile: Name and contact information
- Work Samples: A portfolio of ten (10) digital images showing representative, recent work. If your work is best communicated visually by showing its physical or installed nature, or aspects of detail, use one or more of the ten images for that purpose.
- Exactly ten (10) images must be submitted. They will be projected for the panelists via high-definition digital projectors and viewed at roughly 30 x 40 inches per image. Images must be standard baseline JPEG files with the .jpg extension. The recommended color profile is sRGB. Maximum file size is 1.8 MB. Image size can be no larger than 1920 x 1920 pixels (smaller images will be shown against a 1920 x 1920 black background). Images should be 72 PPI; any higher will unnecessarily increase your file size.
- Text descriptors for each image: Title, Year Completed, Medium, Dimensions
Note: There are also fields for image “Value” and “Description” in the application. We don’t include this information in our review process. “Description” can be left blank. $0.00 can be entered for image “Value”. Whatever you enter in these fields — it will not be seen by jurors.
- Work Statement: (500 words maximum) The purpose of the Statement is to give the panel a better understanding of your work while they are viewing it. It should be very clear and concise, and relate to the specific works you are submitting.
- Career summary, artist resume/CV, or short bio (500 words maximum).”

February 8th & 19th, Albuquerque: Opening Reception & Artist Talk: Martin Stupich “Remnants of the First World”
University of New Mexico Art Museum
Opening Reception for Martin Stupich, Remnants of the First World
Friday, February 8, 2013, 5:00-7:00 pm
Artist Talk on Tuesday, February 19, 2013 at 5:30 pm
Free and open to the public.
“We build and shape our landscapes and terrains—gardens, bridges, truck stops, quarries, canals and dams—to suit both our physical and emotional desires. Yet this is not without consequences. This exhibition presents a selection of potent images from a larger body of work that Martin Stupich has explored and recorded since the 1970s. These images of some of our most ambitious, often permanent structures are breathtaking to behold yet also pose questions about what it is we are leaving behind as the “remnants” of our culture and time. As the photographer has remarked “These remnants of the first world are the evidence, the trail of clues we leave as we plow ahead….” Stupich clearly works within a historical sphere which harks back to the nineteenth-century and includes some of the great camera artists of that era such as Timothy O’Sullivan, Carleton Watkins and Darius Kinsey.”
The exhibition is located in the Van Daren Coke Gallery and will be on display February 19 – May 25, 2013.
Martin Stupich will give an artist talk at the museum on Tuesday, February 19, 2013 at 5:30 pm.

“Los Jardines de México presents three related bodies of work, La Fosa Común, Akna and El Jardín de Juegos by Janelle Lynch. Images of overlooked or obscure urban and rural landscapes, they explore aspects of the life cycle—loss, death, regeneration—while simultaneously celebrating life and its intricate beauty.
La Fosa Común is a series of photographs made with an 8×10 camera in Mexico City’s common grave. The site is a burial place for the indigent and unidentified. Also made with an 8×10 camera, Akna is a series of portraits of tree stumps in a nature reserve that explores the theme of rebirth. “Akna,” in Mayan, means “mother” and is the goddess of birth and fertility. Made with a 4×5 camera, El Jardín de Juegos depicts the relics of a children’s recreation area, void of people and eclipsed by nature and neglect.”
The exhibition will be on view January 25 – April 14, 2013.
