In the November/December issue of American Photo, the magazine surveys the medium’s near future in “Emerging Artists 2007.” SVA alumni Amy Stein (MFA 2006 Photography, Video and Related Media) and Shen Wei (MFA 2006 Photography, Video and Related Media) were selected by the magazine as two of 15 up-and-coming talents. Stein is cited for her evocative Domesticated series, which looks at the relationships between humans and animals; and Wei is noted for his ongoing portrait series, Almost Naked.
Another recent alumnus who has gotten noticed for her photography work is Erin Gleeson (MFA 2007 Photography, Video and Related Media). She is one of the artists selected for “National Photography 2007,” a juried exhibition taking place at the Main Street Gallery in Groton, NY, through November 25.
