Emerge – Student Photography Exhibition

For the eighth exciting year we are proud to present Emerge, our annual exhibition featuring works from student photographers enrolled in Arizona high schools, community colleges, art schools, and universities across the state. Ashley Czajkowski, a local photography-based artist and educator, juried this year’s show.

In this exhibition we offer student photographers an opportunity to show their work in a professional gallery, fulfilling our mission to support early-career photographers. In addition to the exhibition, prizes will be awarded for Best in Show, sponsored by Through Each Other’s Eyes; Best of Post-High School, sponsored by Charlene Stant Engel; and Best of High School, sponsored by Kelly and Dennis Collins. 

About the Juror

Ashley Czajkowski, a photography-based artist, works in a number of interdisciplinary methods. Driven by personal experience, her research explores social constructions related to femininity, mortality and the psychological manifestation of the human-animal.  Though she considers herself a photographer, Czajkowski also works in video, installation, and alternative print processes, pushing the expected boundaries of the photographic art medium.


Juror’s Statement

One of the most valuable rewards of studying photography is that it enables us to literally, and metaphorically, see the world around us in entirely new ways. In jurying this show, I was struck by the unique visions of these young photographers and artists. Whether this way of seeing revealed quiet moments of light and shadow or elaborately constructed scenes for the camera, the ability to use photography as a tool for exploration and creative expression was continuous throughout.

Though I did not set out to curate a show with a particular theme, a common thread began to reveal itself. Of the photographs I selected, there are many images of humans, of nature, and most curiously, of the boundaries where these two entities meet, overlap and coexist. I found myself responding to images that in some way question our current conditions of being: questions of human nature, our impact on our surroundings, our interactions with each other, and our understanding of ourselves. Almost like archaeologists of our own time, for me these photographs collectively evoke ideas related to the fragility of existence and a sense of wonder in the everyday.

– Ashley Czajkowski

Emerge 2017 – Student Photography Exhibition

Art Intersection presents the seventh annual Emerge exhibition with works from student photographers enrolled in Arizona high schools, community colleges, art schools, and universities across the state. Clare Benson, a local photographer, interdisciplinary artist and educator, juried this year’s show.

As part of our mission to support emerging artists, we offer student photographers an opportunity to show their work in the North and South Galleries at Art Intersection. In addition to the exhibition, prizes will be awarded for Best in Show, sponsored by Through Each Others Eyes, Best of Post-High School, sponsored by Tempe Camera and Best of High School, sponsored by local patrons Kelly and Dennis Collins. INFOCUS, the Photography Support Group of the Phoenix Art Museum, will award a Student Membership to each of the three winners.

About the Juror

Clare Benson is a photographer and interdisciplinary artist from the United States. Her work has been exhibited and screened throughout the US and internationally. In 2014/2015, she received a Fulbright Fellowship to conduct research in northern Sweden at the Swedish Institute of Space Physics. Other recent awards include the Magenta Foundation Flash Forward, PDN Emerging Photographer, and the Joyce Elaine Grant Solo Show Award.

Benson earned her MFA at University of Arizona in Tucson, and her BFA at Central Michigan University.

Juror’s Statement

I can vividly remember the first photograph I made as a student. Armed with a pinhole camera that I had painted and taped and pin-pricked, I went outside, behind the art building, where sculpture students had their foundry and kilns and scrap materials. There was a plain wooden classroom chair, weathered from rain and sun, that I dragged to the center of the asphalt floor, imagining that it might speak as a symbol of absence and isolation, in the midst of this surreal industrial-looking space. I kneeled to the ground, pulling the piece of electrical tape that covered the aperture of my shoe box camera. I stared into this seemingly simple scene, hoping to absorb the moment in the same way that I understood the camera might. Light and darkness danced through a tiny window and onto the back wall of that miniature room. In the developing tray, I watched an image slowly appear, like a backward-fading memory, or something from a dream. The midday sky was black as night. The shadow of the chair glowed like the sun through thin overcast clouds. The entire space stretched out its long arms, pulling toward the sides of the page, blurring at the very ends, from the frayed edges of aluminum foil. Even when converted to a positive image, the world in this photograph looked nothing like the world that I had seen, but everything like the one that I had felt.

As photographers, and especially as photography students, we are constantly learning to re-see the world, using different techniques, processes, perspectives, and formats. In jurying this exhibition, I searched for moments of surprise and newness, which I remember so well from my years of studying photography. I looked at these images as stripped down fragments—concept, craft, and exploration—all existing on separate planes. Each is developed through learning and practice; sometimes all together, and sometimes in different stages. Some works display elements of all three, while some push farther into one than another, but all of them speak to processes of discovery, and the development of one’s voice as an image-maker.

I am impressed with the caliber and boldness of work by all of the Arizona students who submitted images for this exhibition, and I am grateful for the opportunity to see the world through so many different lenses; grateful to be reminded of the time, long ago, that my own world became animated with new life inside a light-tight shoe box.

Clare Benson

Claire A. Warden Teaches Ambrotype Workshop

Ambrotype images, a collodion process on glass, have a unique and beautiful aesthetics that makes this a very exciting in-camera, alternative photographic process.

Claire A. Warden led us through the history and technology of this process during a 3-day workshop that began with a lecture and ended with an open studio where the workshop students created their own Ambrotypes.
