Delighted to be Musée Magazine's WCW for August 23, 2017. Thank you to photo editor Jing Zhao for a lovely conversation about grandmothers and ghosts and the weird and wonderful state of Florida and how it all connects in "What Did the Deep Sea Say."
Very honored to be the LightWork Artist-in-Residence for July 2017. It was an extremely productive month working on my new series, What Did the Deep Sea Say. Special thanks to master printer John Wesley Mannion for sharing his insights and expertise. Thank you to Jeffrey Hoone, Shane Lavalette, Mary Lee Hodgens, and the all amazing staff for making my time in Syracuse so incredible. xo
What Did the Deep Sea Say, my ongoing series set in Hollywood, FL, was recently awarded 3rd place by Siobhan Bohnacker of The New Yorker in the CENTER Awards. The not-for-profit organization CENTER, founded in 1994, honors, supports, and provides opportunities to gifted and committed photographers.
I'm thrilled to be part of the group exhibition along with the fellow winners and to be asked to give an artist talk during the CENTER review in October 2017.
From the Juror's Statement: "Sara Macel’s discovery of her grandmother’s unprinted negatives, led her south to Hollywood, Florida, to retrace the life her grandmother led there. The result of that trip is her poignant project, “What Did the Deep Sea Say”. Documenting herself, her own mother, and interweaving her grandmother’s photographs, Macel creates a lasting, tender portrait of three women bound together, by their embrace of one another and a curiosity in how one person’s life can shape those of consequent generations." - Siobhan Bohnacker, The New Yorker
