Betsy Schneider is a photo-based artist who lives and works in Tempe, Arizona and Sharon, Massachusetts. She is fascinated by photography and uses it to better understand such complicated things as time, decay, the body, childhood, culture, and relationships. Her work has been shown internationally and is in several collections including the Nelson-Atkins Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston and the Museet for Fotokunst in Denmark. A 2011 Guggenheim Fellow, she is currently working on her fellowship project Triskaidekaphobia, portraits and video interviews with 250 thirteen year olds. She is eager to include a wide geographic and demographic in this project and urges anyone with connections to thirteen year-olds interested in participating to contact her. She is an Associate Professor at Arizona State University.
Buyers of the first limited edition 500 Photographers T-shirt were able to enter the photography competition and possibly win a copy of the next edition. Several people entered and a winner has been chosen. All images were wonderful and it was a pleasure to see how various people approached the object in different ways. The winning image is a man running in an open field with the sun slowly going down. It is an uplifting photograph full of movement and freedom. Strong in its simplicity. Congratulations to Jasper Hof.
