The shortlist will be announced in April.
From all submitted projects the judges will shortlist five projects, from which a single project will be appointed as the winner to be published by Libraryman in Fall 2019.
The winning project will be edited and designed by Tony Cederteg, in consultation with the author, and further released and distributed worldwide as a part of the Libraryman catalogue.
Ron Jude’s photographs, which often explore the nexus between place, memory and narrative, have been exhibited widely since 1992. His depiction of financial districts across North America (Executive Model, 2012) and the imagination of his grandfather’s daydreaming as a kiln operator in an industrial plant (Vitreous China, 2016), equally share a penetrative and poetic force, and were respectively published by Libraryman. Jude lectures extensively and internationally about his work and is an associate professor of art at University of Oregon where he teaches photography in the School of Art + Design. With an exacting sensitivity and lore of his craft, he is the author of ten books.
