The toothy ones

  • Sonya Naumann - www.thousanddollardress.com - come to Minneapolis, Sonya! Bring the dress!
  • Jeff Burk - subtle, astute work about the built environment - Quiet Places Blurb book
  • Erika Diettes - chronicler of Columbian atrocity and witness, carrying the messages of the disappeared to the world at large - installations utilizing images on large-scale transparencies and printed on translucent fabric - saw her work Drifting Away here in Houston during FF08 Meeting Place - most recent work-in-progress encasing artifacts of the disappeared in clear, flesh-like rectangles - haunting and emotionally wrenching link
  • Blake Gordon - urban nomad, exploring spaces at night with an animal sense of exposure and survival - panoramas that are about finding safe paths through the city (Austin, in this case) and thereby seeing a city from new perspectives link
  • Ferit Kuyas - visual diarist - Swiss Turk, forming a reflexive five-part artist book addressing degrees of presence, from classic b+w landscape to scanned objects  link images from his Archetypes series form the first book of the series
