La Nueva Vida © Tami Bone; Juror’s Selection
The tag line on Texas based photographer Tami Bone’s website reads “ordinary beauty, everyday humanity” but what you will quickly realize is that there is nothing quite ordinary about Tami Bone’s images. Her softly focused two tone visions inject the ordinary with dream-like surreality.
She writes that her current project
…pulls fragments of memory and figments of imagination from a childhood spent growing up in the rough and tumble of deep South Texas.
Bone’s work was most recently featured at the Center in the Natural World exhibition and awarded Juror’s Selection by Susan Spiritus.

Sao Paulo born and Pennsylvania based photographer Leo Mendonça follows the rhythms of the streets. Wandering the highways and biways that most take for granted on a consistent basis, Mendonça seeks out the particular music in a misread sign or a forgotten structure. His images speak to the layered existence of urban life. Ear Windows, the Portraits Juror’s Award Selection, is no exception – an image of a woman, a building, a portrait of heartbeats within a billboard.
Mendonça’s passion for architecture and design – add licensed architect to his list of accolades – is evident not only in his measured approach to image capture but in his careful consideration of the human interplay, the impact of space on its human subjects.
