MICA Photo alum wins award

Daniel Shea (Class of 2007) wins 2018 the “Foam Paul Huf Award 2018″…

Foam proudly presents 43-35 10th Street an exhibition of the work of Daniel Shea (1985, US), who is selected by an international jury as the winner of the Foam Paul Huf Award 2018.

Daniel Shea was awarded the twelfth Foam Paul Huf Award for his work in which he presents a seductive and disconcerting world of concrete, steel and glass, which traverses the boundaries of fact and fiction. His cityscapes are poetic and timeless, yet they address the very real effects of capitalism on the urban landscape – and society at large. The title of his latest project 43-35 10th Street refers to his studio address in Long Island City: a residential neighbourhood in New York City that is rapidly gentrifying. However, Shea’s construction wastelands could have been (and in fact were) photographed anywhere in the world. Layering photographs from different times and places, the series transcends the local scale and addresses developments that affect cities globally.

Shea’s belief that the built environment profoundly affects society, and vice versa, also informs his own practice. He often lets his compositions bleed onto their mount, or etches architectural blueprints into the glass of the frame. This deliberate use of materials gives his work an almost sculptural quality and emphasises the incongruity between an imagined utopia, and a sometimes dystopian reality.

Daniel Shea is the winner of the 12th Foam Paul Huf Award, which is awarded annually by an international jury to talented photographers under the age of 35.

Foam is supported by the BankGiro Loterij, De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek, Gemeente Amsterdam, Olympus and the VandenEnde Foundation.
