Sean McFarland
The 2009 Baum Award for Emerging American Photographers

SF Camerawork, San Francisco

April 2 - May 23, 2009

Delicately manipulating imagery to create black and white Polaroid photographs that subtly explore ways in which our actions alter the natural landscape, McFarland’s photographs serve, he notes, as “witness to the landscape, showing its history, our trace in it, and admiring its beauty."

SEAN MCFARLAND is the sixth recipient of The Baum Award for Emerging American Photographers, one of the largest US awards available in photography. Sharon Tanenbaum, Executive Director of SF Camerawork, notes, “We are delighted to host The Baum Award and thrilled that San Francisco resident Sean McFarland was chosen from an impressive group of nominees from across the country as the 2009 award recipient." Sean McFarland, was unanimously selected by a panel of jurors that included Vince Aletti, independent curator and photography critic, The New Yorker magazine; Pamela M. Lee, associate professor in the department of art and art history, Stanford University; Chuck Mobley, curator, SF Camerawork; Larry Sultan, artist and professor of photography, California College of the Arts; Lisa Sutcliffe, assistant curator of photography, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art
