Booksmart Studio is seeking submissions for our exhibition “In Habitation”. The juror will be David Wright who is an editorial photographer based out of Maine. David’s series “Alebtong, Uganda, 2009” is very well known and he was also the co-founder of the project and exhibition called Pause to Begin.
“In Habitation” is looking for photographs that help explore the landscape and infrastructure of America, the population responsible for it, and the symbiotic relationship between the two. This exhibition explores the ways in which our urban and rural centers operate and fluctuate, creating a uniquely American dynamic of experience. This exhibition will ultimately present a socio-graphic interpretation of America- a mapping of people and place.
David Wright is a photographer based in Maine. He has always learned about the world and himself through photography. In January and February 2009 David spent 2 months in northern Uganda photographing for A River Blue, a school providing psychosocial counseling and intense vocational training in topics like tailoring, agriculture, and arts to vulnerable youth. His series “Alebtong, Uganda, 2009” was selected as 1 of 3 winners in the 2009 Conscientious Portfolio Competition and was exhibited at Anastasia Photo in New York from February 5 – April 14, 2010. David’s editorial work is represented by Redux Pictures and his Uganda work is represented by AnastasiaPhoto. Most photographs on this website are available as licensed images and edition prints.
