“The applicants for this year’s En Foco New Works Photography Fellowship Awards know that we are changed by what we love. They also understand love is not easy––to nurture, to share, or to support. It’s certainly not easy to describe or to portray in photographs. Whether photographing their family, a place with strong emotional appeal or sites of historical importance to them, the best of the photographers created strong portfolios of consistently engaging images, clearly identifying for the viewer why they want to share their visions with us.
— Anne Wilkes Tucker, juror, New Works #13
