Presented in conjunction with this year’s New York Photo Festival, “Photo Global: New Releases 2011,” is an exhibition of selected work by the six international photographers who participated in the 2010 – 2011 Photo Global program, a one-year residency offered by the BFA Photography Department.
The exhibition, which is on view through May 15 at Front Street Galleries, located at 111 Front Street, Suite 226, in the DUMBO section of Brooklyn, features works by Jean Bettingen, Luxembourg; Simon Lewis, Australia; Monica Lozano, Mexico; Dhruv Malhotra, India; Maciej Markowicz, Poland; and Marco Scozzaro, Italy.
Looking ahead to next year, Stephen Frailey, chair of the BFA Photography Department and co-chair of the MPS Fashion Photography Department, recently awarded a Photo Global prize to Dutch photographer Anouk Kruithof at the Hyères International Festival of Fashion and Photography in Villa Noailles, France. He will award a second Photo Global prize at the ITS#TEN Festival held in Trieste, Italy in July.
