Juror: Sean Hemmerle, Photographer, Educator, Author.
Sean Hemmerle is a New York (Poughkeepsie) based photographer whose work ranges from international conflict zones to deserted industrial towns in the United States. His conflict images span over 10 years, beginning with the World Trade Center collapse, and continuing with sites such as Kabul, Baghdad, Gaza, Juarez and Beirut. Closer to home, Hemmerle has created award-winning photographs that reflect the pathos and poetry of U.S. Rust Belt areas in Detroit, Pittsburgh, Toledo, Gary, and Albany. Hemmerle is drawn to architecture as a formal and symbolic element in much of his work. This has led to numerous commercial collaborations with international architecture and design firms. Since receiving his MFA from the School of Visual Arts, Hemmerle has exhibited nationally and internationally. His work can be found in public and private collections such as the Museum of Modern Art, the International Center for Photography, Martin Margulies and Brooks Brothers. His images have been featured in major publications, including Metropolis, Time and The New York Times Magazine.
