Evie Metz wins “Lenscratch” prize
MICA Photo is proud to announce that Evie Metz has won the “Lenscratch” Student Third Place Prize for 2017. From Lenscratch:
“Evie Metz is our third place student prize winner for her work titled, Seeking Stephanie, an intriguing and unique response to feeling displaced in a new location as many young adults do when leaving home for college. While viewing these photographs, I feel a multitude of emotions both banal and strange that are triggered by nostalgia brought on by her use of film aesthetic and unusual image pairings. These moments captured feel as though they are suspended without a clear representation of time or location. I find this work to be an expression of self-discovery and a visual illustration of the self-consciousness felt when uprooted from the familiar. This Fall, Evie will begin studying for her MFA at the Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU).”
Kudos to you, Evie! Great work, and good luck at VCU!
