Arno Rafael Minkkinen

Arno Rafael Minkkinen's images are extraordinary.  My  mind's eye has been confronted with the simple illusions of the everyday that I, generally fail to acknowledge.  I think I may have found a new photographer to add to my growing list of favorites.

Matthew Kern

Matthew Kern is well known artist in Baltimore, and this year is nominated for a Baker Award.  I love his dreamy polaroids, and his willingness to show the "less finer" things that we polaroid enthusiasts know so well.

William Wegman

I find myself constantly drawn to works expressing the subtleties of relationships, including those with the animal world.  William Wegman gives his audience a sampling of the complicated, yet endearingly simple relationship between a man and his dog.  The trust and love for dog and owner almost becomes tangible.

Sarah Mei Herman

Sarah Mei Herman writes that she is fascinated by the relationship between other people, particularly the sibling relationship, and the transitions and thresholds of these relationships.  I myself am throughly captivated by the sibling relationship, and find this work to be a perfectly timed new perspective.

Jordan Tate

Work from Jordan Tate's Framework series in which he seeks to make the viewer more aware of the active dialogue between the image and the viewer.  Jordan Tate also runs the I Like this Art blog, which I throughly enjoy.

I have a certain affinity for work that illustrates the mysteries of the female race.  Julia Galdo, you must be after my heart.

Gregory Crewdson

I was introduced to Gregory Crewdson's cinematic images during my sophomore year at Mica. I was immediately drawn to them, but at the same time repealed by their high production costs.
