Doris Jew Conrath and Jim Stone
2009 James D. Phelan Art Award in Photography

SF Camerawork, San Francisco

June 4 - August 22, 2009

The 2009 James D. Phelan Art Award in Photography recipients are Doris Jew Conrath and Jim Stone. Jurors were: Allan deSouza, artist and SFAI professor, and Cathy Kimball, executive director of San Jose Institute for Contemporary Art.

Award recipient Doris Jew Conrath 's panoramic images are created out of several photographs. The artist explains, “Instead of wide views of a physical space taken by pivoting from one point, I record while walking around a structure and unfold the space in a manner similar to a world map created by using a cylindrical projection method. The individual photographs are then digitally stitched together, forming a new space that shows all sides, allowing the viewer to take in multi facets at once.”

The photography of Jim Stone explores facets of America's unusual and complex character, including such sub-themes as obsession and its public display, the mixing of religious and military iconography in a peaceable secular society, and the ironic difference between intent and achievement. Ultimately the artist sees his work as framing “an organized set of graphic and sociological concerns.” - Jim Stone
