Lehman College Art Gallery in collaboration with En Foco is exhibiting work by the four winners of En Foco's New Works Photography Awards. The annual New Works Awards program supports photographers of African, Asian, Latino, and Native American heritage, in creating a portfolio of in-depth documentary/fine art photographic work.
In his series Between Rounds Cape Verdean photographer Tertuliano Delgado, explores the world of boxing, concentrating on inner city youth and their involvement in the sport as a means of expressing pride and hope for the future. Kapulani Landgraf, a native Hawaiian photographer, goes beyond traditional black & white photographs by using weaving and collage techniques along with a strong socio-political message. Sheila Pree seeks ways to inspire others to value southern African-American communities. Her New Works project, Coming Home, reminds us that many of these locations were foundations for the civil rights era and communal achievement. Through an intricate process of using photography, painting, objects and, at times, computer manipulation to create his images, Hawaiian-born Japanese photographer Darrell Matsumoto attempts to re-interpret and reconstruct fiction combined with truth.
