David Sundberg has worked as a commercial architectural photographer since 1996, documenting a wide variety of projects, from small private residences to skyscrapers. In his personal work, he looks for serendipitous moments when architecture can appear simplified, the structure’s form distilled and made basic by an effect of lighting or weather. Sundberg’s photos are in the collection of the Bibliotheque Nationale de Paris and numerous private and corporate collections. He is a MacDowell Fellow.

Gail Peachin’s work as an antique dealer takes her to many antique shows, flea markets, and shops. She started collecting old family albums along the way and, in order to do something with the photos, began cutting the people out and putting them in new environments. She found the negative space in the photos more interesting and began filling the space with textures and colors, transforming the photos into collages. Gail graduated with a BFA from The Art Institute of Chicago.

Alan Herman is a lifelong visual artist, with a BFA, an MFA, an NEA grant, and a long list of group and solo exhibitions in New York City. For the past 32 years he has split his time between New York City and an aging farmhouse in Jefferson, NY. While Herman has worked primarily as a sculptor—and painted for a number of years as well—photography has always informed all aspects of his creative process.

Editha Mesina received her MFA from Rutgers University and is on the faculty of Tisch School of the Arts at NYU. Her images explore how family photographs form the memories of a life lived while building the foundations of identity. Her photos are made with a 4×5 view camera and are inspired by 19th century portraits as well as Dutch genre paintings. Her work has been exhibited in the US as well as internationally. Mesina is a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellow in Photography.
