Interviews: Laura Moya of PhotoLucida

Photolucida's Critical Mass has established itself as one of the foremost photo competitions, drawing applicants world wide for the multi-round event culminating in photobooks for the top two or three winners. Since 2005, Photolucida has produced 11 gorgeous books for emerging photographers with two more to be released this spring. The 2010 book award winners are in the process of being selected from the following six photographers: Christopher Capozziello, Natan Dvir, Justine Reyes, Jeff Rich, Pavel Maria Smejkal and Jamey Stillings.

photo-eye was fortunate enough to catch Photolucida's executive director Laura Moya at a lull between Critical Mass jurying cycles and ask a few questions about the competition, jurying process and how the Critical Mass books come to be.

 photo-eye Book Reviews
from the book Infidel
from the book Infidel

Infidel by Tim Hetherington

"Infidel, with photographs by Tim Hetherington and introductory text by Sebastian Junger, is as nearly perfect as I can imagine a book to be. Let me provide a bit of context for the way I see it. First, I came of age during the Vietnam War and was profoundly influenced by the powerful, iconic photographs of that conflict. However, my general impression of post-Vietnam photographs of Americans in combat has been that there is always something hidden or unseen; I always feel removed from the situation, peering out a tank window either literally or figuratively. I keep looking for the real thing, images that resonate as powerfully as, for example, Eddie Adams' photograph of the execution of a prisoner of war, and while I've seen some good work, I have not found what I was searching for. Until Infidel." — From the review by Ellen Rennard of Tim Hetherington's Infidel

Care of Ward 81 by Bill Diodato

"Enter Ward 81, where the walls cake and crumble down into a pile of ruins once called a floor. Ahead, three symmetrical windows reveal a day's light, made leaden by cloud or snow (or dust stuck to the glass). Above, the patchwork of a ceiling hangs like a mouth without teeth, its framework bulging from humidity and neglect.

Bill Diodato has captured empty rooms like this at a state mental hospital in Oregon, where mentally ill women dwelled in the 70s. (It is also the location where One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest was filmed.) The book progresses through a creative flow of colorful images. In the earlier pages, white typography pops out of the small, black frame, while the later pages have been dressed entirely in image." — From the review by Rena Silverman's of Bill Diodato's Care of Ward 81

Lee Friedlander: America by Car Lee Friedlander: America by Car
"Enduring icons of American culture, the car and the highway remain vital as auguries of adventure and discovery, and a means by which to take in the country's vast scale. Lee Friedlander is the first photographer to make the car an actual "form" for making photographs. Driving across most of the country's 50 states in an ordinary rental car, Friedlander applied the brilliantly simple conceit of deploying the sideview mirror, rearview mirror, the windshield and the side windows as a picture frame within which to record the country's eccentricities and obsessions at the turn of the century."—the publisher

Paul Strand: Paul Strand in Mexico Paul Strand in Mexico
"Paul Strand in Mexico tells the story of the photographer's journeys through Mexico in the early 1930s. In search of a fresh start, Strand traveled to Mexico City in late 1932 at the invitation of Carlos Chavez, the eminent Mexican composer and conductor. The work he created during this key period reflects a time of intense productivity, creative renewal, and the evolution of Strand's foundational idea of the 'collective portrait,' in which he depicted a region through photographs of individuals, still lifes and studies of architecture and religious subjects."-the publisher
