Congratulations to Adam Golfer – MICA Photo 07 !

The Museum of Contemporary Photography (MoCP) at Columbia College Chicago has awarded the 2016 Snider Prize to Adam Golfer (American, b. 1985). His series, A House Without a Roof, considers the fractures of the overlapping histories of violence and displacement connecting Europe, Israel and Palestine. With photographs, archival imagery, and original texts, Golfer weaves together fictions of his family history with representations from Israel’s founding and ongoing military occupation.  Previously, his work has been exhibited in New York and Washington, DC, including at the 92Y  in Manhattan, the Goethe-Institut Washington, the Camera Club of NY and at Booklyn Artists Space in Brooklyn.  Golfer is currently an MFA candidate at Hunter College, and he received a BFA in Photography from the Maryland Institute College of Art.

This year, artists Eileen Walsh (American, b. 1990) and Kei Ito (Japanese) both received honorable mentions.

The Snider Prize is a purchase award given to emerging artists as they leave graduate school. Golfer will receive $2,000, and Walsh and Ito will each receive $500 for the purchase of work to be added to MoCP’s permanent collection. Sponsored by Lawrence K. and Maxine Snider, the Snider Prize forms a part of the museum’s ongoing commitment to support new talent in the field of contemporary photography.
