Winner of Photographic Resource Center Award
Shutter Hub Yearbook Awards 2021
In addition to having my work selected for Shutter Hub’s Yearbook 2021 online exhibition and print publication, I’m very excited to discover that my image has also been selected as the winner of the Photographic Resource Center Award. Jessica Burko of the PRC said:
“In viewing Diagenesis 1 by Elizabeth Woodger I found myself experiencing the image in stages. At first glance my eye was drawn to color alone, then the overall scenery came into view, and all at once legs, hands, and the paper’s edge. Blending figure into landscape with landscape as cloak accentuates the fraught relationship between humanity and nature while also commenting on the photographer as mediator of visual experience. A powerful statement utilizing unexpected means.”

Shortlisted for The Light of Day project
This image was recently shortlisted for Artquest’s current project showcasing artists in England whose projects have been cancelled or postponed due to COVID-19 / coronavirus pandemic lockdowns.
The image is taken from a moving image piece, Diagenesis, that should have been shown as part of the AOP Awards 2020 exhibition at Canary Wharf earlier this year. Sadly the exhibition was cancelled due to the pandemic but Artquest will be featuring my photograph on their Instagram profile very soon.
