Photographer Judith Stenneken On Texture, Journeys And The Concept Of Home
02 sep 2015 by art:i:curate team
Judith Stenneken grew up in a small village in the north of Germany with stints living in Hamburg, Berlin and London before moving to New York. She earned her MFA in Photography, Video and Related Media from the School of Visual Arts, New York in 2013. Her first self-published book 'Last Call | Zentralflughafen Tempelhof' won the Grand Prize of Blurb's Photography Book Now contest in 2010 for which she also received the International Young Talent Award of the F/Stop Photo Festival in Leipzig the previous year. In 2011, she was selected as one of 'PDN's 30 - New and Emerging Photographers to watch'.
Taking as a starting point the recurrent metaphors used in her photographic work, I asked Judith for a selection of visual responses to the concept of journey, the intimacy in times of departure and arrival, and her ideas on the concept of a home.
