Julie Blackmon wins Santa Fe Center for Photography's 2006 Project Competition
The staff of photo-eye congratulates gallery artist Julie Blackmon, winner of the Santa Fe Center for Photography's 2006 Project Competition for her portfolio "Domestic Vacations." While the work explores the everyday life of her family, Blackmon was inspired by the paintings of Jan Steen, along with those of other Dutch and Flemish genre painters of the 17th Century. According to juror Yossi Milo, "From almost seven hundred entries, seven have been selected to receive awards or honorable mentions. This is a fierce competition and ultimately only the photographers who submitted 20 strong images made it to the final stages."

Sheila McLaughlin's portfolio Ireland Series
"My photographs do no more than exhibit the fetish of an absence: an article of clothing, a photo, a religious icon. They say nothing of the memories that they might have meant to preserve; at most they announce for an instant the unattainable of having been there. There is no nostalgia and no redemption. This work is my attempt to exempt each individual's memories from the extreme bereavement of being forgotten."—Sheila McLaughlin*

*inspired by writings on the work of Christian Boltansky from the catalogue of an exhibition held in Siena, Italy.

David Lachapelle: Lachapelle Land David Lachapelle: Lachapelle Land
Roth's The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century recognizes David LaChapelle's 1996 LaChapelle Land as its 101st book. And rightly so. The marriage of LaChapelle's vivid, high-octane images with graphic artist, Tadanori Yokoo's supersaturated designs make for an astonishing physical object. The reissue of this now classic, long out-of-print volume showcases all the lollipop giddiness of the original now lavishly reproduced in a larger format."—the publisher READ MORE
