Juror Danielle Jackson, Co-Founder of The Bronx Documentary Center, states, “A few projects excelled in their technical ability, clarity of vision, originality and execution of concept. This year’s winners invite us to understand cultures unknown to many American audiences. Their projects consider the power of place, and the nature of connection and isolation.” The exhibition features: Alan Chin, Eyakem Gulilat, Angie Keller, Hye-Ryoung Min, Joana Toro.

En Foco’s New Works Photography Fellowship Awards is an annual program that awards several U.S. based photographers of Latino, African or Asian heritage, and Native Peoples of the Americas and Pacific, through a free, national call for entries. The program helps artists create or complete an in-depth photographic series exploring themes of their choice, and provides the infrastructure needed for national visibility and a professional exhibition of their new work in the New York area. They are able to hone their craft, gain experience, exposure, funds, an exhibition and photo-related products.

The goal of New Works is to identify and promote talented emerging and mid-career artists, creating a cross-cultural dialogue and providing artists with exposure and growth opportunities. Past jurors have included prestigious figures in the world of photography as Natasha Egan, Director and Curator at Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago; Deborah Willis, curator, author, photographer and Chair of the Photo & Imaging Dept. at NYU/TISCH; and many more.
