Minneapolis-based BETH DOW is the Grand Prize Winner for “IN THE GARDEN” which I first became aware of at Review Santa Fe several years ago and have since become a huge fan of this and her more recent work. Jen Bekman Gallery in NYC showed Beth’s elegant images in 2007, receiving a mention from photography critic Vince Aletti in The New Yorker. Congratulations, Beth!
And congratulations are also due to all those who placed in the competition.
I encourage you to go to the website and view the projects submitted, some of which I have known and admired for some time, other bodies of work are new to me. Entering a book dummy for this competitions was no small feat so please take a look at the efforts of those who placed as well as those who submitted, all of which are available for purchase at the Blurb Bookstore.
