Photographer's Showcase Artist Update

Lisa's Hat by Ronald Cowie -- Second Place Winner
Congratulations to Ronald Cowie who recently won second place in the Sixth Annual Alternative Process Competition at Soho Photo in New York.  Two of his images have also been selected for the accompanying exhibition, open now at Soho Photo through December 4th.

Cowie's  Leaving Babylon portfolio features beautiful images of a world that is familiar, yet also eerily dream-like.  Making the work even more dynamic, Cowie's images are gorgeous platinum prints, which he prints himself. See Cowie's work on the Photographer's Showcase here.

Ordinary Lives by Rania Matar
The very busy Rania Matar has two events in Europe coming up, the first in Bielsko-Biala, Poland at the Gallery of Photography B&B.  Opening on November 12th, the show will feature work from Matar's series A Girl and Her Room, which you can see on the Photographer's Showcase here.

On November 19th Matar will be in Paris, France at The Empty Quarters Gallery booth (A16) at Photo Paris to sign copies of her book Ordinary Lives.  The signing begins at 5 pm.  Read Susan Burnstine's review of Ordinary Lives in photo-eye Magazine.

Swimmer, 2006 -- Rita Bernstein

Gallery 339 in Philadelphia will be displaying an exhibition of work by Rita Bernstein entitled Ghost of Summer.  Opening November 12th with a reception running from 6-8pm, the show will feature recent works produced in Bernstein's beautiful signature technique of liquid silver emulsion hand applied to Japanese Gampi paper.  The result is a photograph that is tactile and sculptural -- and completely unique. See Bernstein's work on the Photographer's Showcase here.

Still Life with Banana, Purse and Change -- Justine Reyes
 Justine Reyes will have work in the show "Things Fall Apart" curated by Amy Stein at Pool Gallery in Berlin, Germany.  The exhibition opens November 19th with an opening reception from 6-10 pm.  Reyes came to the Photographer's Showcase as a Juror's Choice Award winner in the Center Project Competition. Since then, she has been granted a work space residency from the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC), visiting scholar status at NYU and just last week made Photolucida's Critical Mass Top 50.  You can see Reyes' work on the Photographer's Showcase here.
