2010 Review Santa Fe
from PRC Blog, by Glenn Ruga
Photo by Dana Popa Dana Popa won first prize in the Project Competition at Center for "not
Natasha," a documentary of 17 sex trafficked women from Moldova.
Natasha is the pejorative term for prostitutes with eastern European
looks. The images are bold, sensitive, and uncomfortable, as they should
be for a subject such as this. Popa says in her artist statement, "I
met seventeen women who survived sexual slavery. ...Some of them too
fragile; some very strong, trying to leave behind an unwanted past....I
had to be both discreet and protective."
Too Close: Andrew M. K. Warren
by George Slade
Andrew has a thing about cars. Like a lot of us, but he's
really gone deep with his fascination, which expresses itself in dry-witted
photographic depictions of cars in what we might call candid, or environmental,
auto portraits (as opposed to auto-, or self-, portraits, though there's
nothing like a car to show an aspect of your personality).
As I discovered in a member's portfolio review with Andrew
last month, he's fascinated by non-functional cars, or cars whose mobility has
been impaired by circumstances of nature, malice, or neglect.
