Cultivating an Image

July 14, 2006

Three alumni from the MFA Photography, Video and Related Media Department – Nicholas Prior (2004), Ofer Wolberger (2001) and Danwen Xing (2001) – have been named among the 35 artists on the roster of Getty Images New Photographers 2007, as announced last week at the Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival. New Photographers was created to showcase the work of photographers who are transforming the future of images in advertising.

Also, Art History Department faculty member Peter Kloehn had his essay, “History of Photography: 1: Nineteenth Century Foundations,” selected for inclusion in the Encyclopedia of Twentieth-Century Photography (Routledge), a three-volume set that aims to be a comprehensive history of the modern practice of photography. Kloehn’s essay is the first section of a six-part historical overview in the encyclopedia.
