Priscilla Smith, associate professor of art at the University of Delaware, explores local contemporary photography in a series of articles for The States Project, published by Lenscratch.
An eight-year-long effort, The States Project has captured the work of thousands of photographers from around the nation with the help of a local photographer at each stop. Smith's talent, experience and keen eye made her a prime candidate for Delaware editor.
Her visually rich articles cover a range of important Delaware-based photographers, all of whom have connections to the University of Delaware. Featured artists include: Kathleen Buckalew, Portraits of Farmers series; Eric Zippe, Portals of Presence; assistant professor Jon Cox and Andrew Bale, The Ese'Eja People of the Amazon: Connected by a Thread; and Alida Fish, Volunteers.
“I looked for photographers who, like the location of Delaware, engaged subjects of the fragile yet resilient," Smith said about her selection process in a Lenscratch article spotlighting her work and career. “Whether they depict the beauty of threatened coastal and estuary lands or the horror of penitence in stone-cold solitary confinement; indigenous peoples desperate to stay intact; the resilience of plants, the vagaries of chemical patina on paper and metal, to me, this is the common link of the work of these artists."
Lenscratch is an online daily journal dedicated to supporting and celebrating the photographic arts and photographic artists through exposure, discussion, community collaboration and education. Its goal is to provide a forum for rich critical and cultural discourse on the complex role this medium plays in the world, always aiming to reflect the vast array of voices and perspectives within the photographic community.
