We have two big announcements to make about Clarissa's fine-art work! First, back in 2012 PDN, Photo District News, named Clarissa as one of their undiscovered fine-art photographers on 2012. This year in the April issue they've names her as one of their top 30 new and emerging photographers to watch out for! Being included in PDN once is a big deal, but twice!! The issue should be in news stands soon, check it out!


Not only that, but Clarissa is also now represented by the Catherine Edelman Gallery! The Edelman Gallery has always been one of our favorite galleries in the city. They represent many talented photographers, some we even read about in our text books in photo school! Some of Clarissa's work will be up in the gallery starting in April. The gallery will have an opening that Clarissa will be attending on Friday April 3rd from 5-7pm. It's the first Friday of the month so all the galleries will be open, many with free wine/beer! Stop by and show some support!

PDN's Top Knot Contest!

Check out the May issue of PDN and you'll run across one of our photos! Luis was a finalist in this years PDN Top Knot contest! PDN is one of the biggest magazines for photographers and it's a great honor to be included in one of their contests. Last June Clarissa won PDN's search for undiscovered fine art photography. That means we've BOTH placed in PDN contests in the past year. Pretty awesome!

Clarissa is in PDN!!

We're very proud to announce that Clarissa will be appearing in the July issue of PDN! For those of you who don't know, PDN is one of (if not THE)  biggest photo magazines around, so this is a very big honor. She actually won an international contest that was searching for "outstanding and undiscovered fine-art photography." She won the student category (she entered the contest a couple months before graduating with her MFA). As a part of the contest, her work will also be exhibited in New York City during Photoville! The Curator show will run from June 22nd to July 1, 2012. Stop by and take a look if your in NYC.

Issues are just now arriving at subscribers doorsteps, so keep an eye out at your local bookstore, it should be there soon!

Clarissa is a Photo Master!

Clarissa will be graduating with her MFA in Photography from Columbia College this week! YAY!! You can see some of her work hanging during the graduate thesis exhibition at the Glass Curtain Gallery. The opening is this Friday (April 4) from 5-8pm, and the show will be up through June 1st. We'd love to see anyone who could make it to the opening!
