Interview with Monika Sziladi (2010 Daylight/CDS Photo Awards)

Interview with Monika Sziladi Jurors’ Pick (Julie Saul and Alec Soth), 2010 Daylight/CDS Photo Awards Work-in-Process Prize What sparked your initial interest for your “Wide Receivers” project? It’s enormously complex to try and map out the effect of one person’s behavior on another since each person’s emotional and intellectual make-up is shaped by that of […]


Interview with Martin Roemers (2010 Daylight/CDS Photo Awards)

Interview with Martin Roemers Juror’s Pick (Jamie Wellford), 2010 Daylight/CDS Photo Awards Work-in-Process Prize What were you attempting to illustrate by the use of blurred images? What you see are moving people and vehicles. This illustrates the hectic activity and chaos which never stops in a city with so many people. Why were you particularly […]

Interview with Paula McCartney (2010 Daylight/CDS Photo Awards)

Interview with Paula McCartney Juror’s Pick (Darius Himes), Daylight/CDS Photo Awards Work-in-Process Prize Could you describe your start in photography—how and why you first became interested in making photographs? It was in my third year of college. I had begun school by studying advertising, but in the second year realized it was too business orientated, […]

Interview with Erica Allen (2010 Daylight/CDS Photo Awards)

Interview with Erica Allen Juror’s Pick (Hank Willis Thomas), Daylight/CDS Photo Awards Work-in-Process Prize Did you experience any type of change in your artistic practice when you moved cross country from Oakland, California to Brooklyn, New York? My artistic practice definitely shifted after moving to New York City. Previously my photographic work was all shot with […]


Interview with Daniel Stier (2010 Daylight/CDS Photo Awards)

Interview with Daniel Stier (2010 Daylight/CDS Photo Awards)

Interview with Daniel Stier Juror’s Pick (Darius Himes and Alec Soth), Daylight/CDS Photo Awards Project Prize Where does the nature part of the project Man, Nature, Technology come into play? I found the title “Man, Nature, Technology” to have this utopian idea about science, which I’m trying to contrast  with the real world of scientific […]

Interview with Jan Lieske (2010 Daylight/CDS Photo Awards)

Interview with Jan Lieske Juror’s Pick (Jamie Wellford), Daylight/CDS Photo Awards Project Prize We had trouble finding your biography: could you give us a brief history of what led you to this sort of photography? About seven years ago I got my first SLR camera. I started studying documentary photography and photojournalism at the FH […]


Interview with Priya Kambli (2010 Daylight/ CDS Photo Awards)

Interview with Priya Kambli (2010 Daylight/ CDS Photo Awards)

Interview with Priya Kambli Juror’s Pick (Vince Aletti), Daylight/CDS Photo Awards Project Prize As you described in your artist statement, you absolutely despised being photographed by your father when you were younger. What made you decide or realize that your passion was to become a photographer? Having grown in a household where photography was prevalent […]


Interview with Rachel Barrett (2010 Daylight/CDS Photo Awards)

Interview with Rachel Barrett (2010 Daylight/CDS Photo Awards)

Interview with Rachel Barrett Juror’s Pick (Hank Willis Thomas), Daylight/CDS Photo Awards Project Prize In juror Hank Willis Thomas’s statement about your project, he said that you “understand texture” and that your “serious search for connection with your subjects comes through in your images.” Do you think that this is a fair assessment of what […]

Interview with Elizabeth Moreno (2010 Daylight/CDS Photo Awards)

Interview with Elizabeth Moreno Winner and Juror’s Pick (Vince Aletti), Daylight/CDS Photo Awards Work-in-Process Prize Why did you decide to do utilize diptychs in your work? This project started with the idea to portray the rancheros within their environment. Working with diptychs allows me to make more emphasis in the little details I find in […]


Interview with Nandita Raman (2010 Daylight/CDS Photo Awards)

Interview with Nandita Raman (2010 Daylight/CDS Photo Awards)

Interview with Nandita Raman Winner and Juror’s Pick (Julie Saul), Daylight/CDS Photo Awards Project Prize We read that the inspiration for the theme of your series, Cinema Play House, came from the fact that your mother used to own a movie theater.  Can you talk about the connection you have to the cinema and why […]

Martin Roemers, Juror’s Pick (Jamie Wellford), Work-in-Process Prize (2010 Daylight/CDS Photo Awards)

Martin Roemers, Juror's Pick (Jamie Wellford), Work-in-Process Prize (2010 Daylight/CDS Photo Awards)

Martin Roemers Juror’s Pick, Work-in-Process Prize “I select Martin Roemers’s Metropolis as my pick in the Work-in-Process category. The subject and theme alone are potentially overwhelming. He is in the process of visually addressing the relationships of humanity to and within inherently complex megacities, in which there is ever-changing organic development evolving in both astonishing […]


Monika Sziladi, Juror’s Pick (Julie Saul and Alec Soth), Work-in-Process Prize (2010 Daylight/CDS Photo Awards)

Monika Sziladi, Juror's Pick (Julie Saul and Alec Soth), Work-in-Process Prize (2010 Daylight/CDS Photo Awards)

Monika Sziladi Juror’s Pick, Work-in-Process Prize “There is a freshness and vitality to these images despite a big dose of social critique. I like the dynamism of the compositions, and the urban universality of the subjects. Although these owe a big debt to Jessica Craig Martin, I think the work will find a clearer voice […]


Rachel Barrett, Juror’s Pick (Hank Willis Thomas), Project Prize (2010 Daylight/CDS Photo Awards)

Rachel Barrett, Juror's Pick (Hank Willis Thomas), Project Prize (2010 Daylight/CDS Photo Awards)

Rachel Barrett Juror’s Pick, Project Prize “Rachel Barrett understands texture. She sees it in skin, in wood, in grass, and in color. Through her images she tries to touch life with her eyes. I can almost see her face pressed against the camera with glee, or with earnest composure. Her serious search for connection with […]


Paula McCartney, Juror’s Pick (Darius Himes), Work-in-Process Prize (2010 Daylight/CDS Photo Awards)

Paula McCartney, Juror's Pick (Darius Himes), Work-in-Process Prize (2010 Daylight/CDS Photo Awards)

Paula McCartney Juror’s Pick, Work-in-Process Prize “Paula McCartney consistently conflates the world of her immediate surroundings with the landscape of her thoughts and perceptions about that landscape in an intelligent, brilliantly visualized way. With these photographs of snow and ice, viewers feel exposed, vulnerable, cold, and obsessively intrigued with the unforgiving landscape before them. Everything […]


Jan Lieske, Juror’s Pick (Jamie Wellford), Project Prize (2010 Daylight/CDS Photo Awards)

Jan Lieske, Juror's Pick (Jamie Wellford), Project Prize (2010 Daylight/CDS Photo Awards)

Jan Lieske Juror’s Pick, Project Prize “Jan Lieske’s work on displaced immigrants trapped in a cycle of indentured servitude on the Italian Mediterranean coast is a visually striking series on the subject of desperation. There is a palpable sense of anxiety and disorientation in the series, which is most notable in images of cluttered, makeshift […]


Priya Kambli, Juror’s Pick (Vince Aletti), Project Prize (2010 Daylight/CDS Photo Awards)

Priya Kambli, Juror's Pick (Vince Aletti), Project Prize (2010 Daylight/CDS Photo Awards)

Priya Kambli Juror’s Pick, Project Prize “Kambli’s project is the most personal and artful of the submissions this year. Her collages of vintage and contemporary portraits, along with still lifes of objects and strips of fabric, are marvelously resonant. She creates a richly layered self-portrait full of tactile passages and small, lovely surprises: the pat […]


Erica Allen, Juror’s Pick (Hank Willis Thomas), Work-in-Process Prize (2010 Daylight/CDS Photo Awards)

Erica Allen, Juror’s Pick (Hank Willis Thomas), Work-in-Process Prize (2010 Daylight/CDS Photo Awards)

Erica Allen Juror’s Pick, Work-in-Process Prize “Erica Allen’s photographs lay somewhere between witnessing and voyeurism. The portraits seem to reflect men in intimate moments of contemplation while they also appear to be on display. These qualities perfectly illustrate Roland Barthes notion of the ‘punctum,’ which allows the viewer to see a part of his- or […]


Nandita Raman, Winner and Juror’s Pick (Julie Saul), Project Prize (2010 Daylight/CDS Photo Awards)

Nandita Raman, Winner and Juror's Pick (Julie Saul), Project Prize (2010 Daylight/CDS Photo Awards)

Nandita Raman Winner and Juror’s Pick (Julie Saul), Daylight/CDS Photo Awards Project Prize “I love this project because the subject is great, and it is addressed beautifully on its own terms—you feel that it grew organically from a love and knowledge of the subject. The images are very beautiful and evocative, and the use of […]

Daniel Stier, Juror's Pick (Darius Himes and Alec Soth), Project Prize (2010 Daylight/CDS Photo Awards)

Daniel Stier Juror’s Pick, Project Prize “Looking at Daniel Stier’s pictures of scientists and their contraptions, I’m reminded that photography has always been linked to the scientific impulse. Whether using camera or microscope (or whatever the hell Stier’s subjects are employing), we use these tools to see and understand the world in fresh and unexpected […]


Elizabeth Moreno, Winner and Juror’s Pick (Vince Aletti), Work-in-Process Prize (2010 Daylight/CDS Photo Awards)

Elizabeth Moreno, Winner and Juror’s Pick (Vince Aletti), Work-in-Process Prize (2010 Daylight/CDS Photo Awards)

Elizabeth Moreno Winner and Juror’s Pick, Daylight/CDS Photo Awards Work-in-Process Prize “Elizabeth Moreno’s decision to present her photographs as diptychs allows us unusual and welcome access to her subject. Typically combining a portrait with an environmental still life, these pieces have a scope that is wide open, occasionally panoramic. They give us a sense of […]
