MFA Photography 2012 Alumni Colleen Fitzgerald Featured on Lenscratch

Written by:


MFA Photography 2012 Alumni Colleen Fitzgerald has recently been featured on Lenscratch, a website which covers Fine Art Photography. The feature covers Colleen Fitzgerald’s project, Stamina, and Colleen discusses her approach to her work.

Colleen Fitzgerald’s project, Stamina, was a stand-out at PhotoNOLA and the work garnered her Third Place in the 2018 PhotoNOLA Review Award. As she states, her photographs are a negotiation of vision as she explores the possibilities of dimension and materialityThis exciting approach to sculptural photographs “reconstructs both reality and the very material that records reality.”

Colleen also created amazing “2018 PhotoNOLA Special Edition” leave-behinds for the reviewers (see below) that perfectly echoed her project: a series of nine 4×5 inch prints is presented in a series of film boxes. This is the type of box that the large format film I use to make work comes in and where I typically store developed film. Each box is different, and my name is laser cut into the cover of the inside casing of each box. The boxes, much like the subjects of the prints housed within them, contain unique gestures and markings. Together the nine prints inside each box form a grid.
