SVA alumnus Maureen Drennan (MFA 2009 Photography, Video and Related Media) was featured on The New York Times’ Lens blog recently for her photo essay “Meet Me in the Green Glen,” which focuses on a man named Ben and his marijuana farm in Northern California.
In the article, Samantha Stark writes of Drennan, “She compares her work to a Flannery O’Connor story. Her character is defined by his landscape, a wall of trees immersed in fog. She thinks of Ben: in a bubble bath, cigar in hand, a tall, pink dinner candle perched by the window on the ledge of the tub.” In Drennan’s own words, Ben “is a guy who knows how to relax.”
