Award

What’s Lost is Found, has just been awarded Duke University’s 2017 Archive of Documentary Arts Collection Award for Documentarians of the American South. The award is an acquisition prize; Duke is acquiring 40 photographs from the project. This body of work was commissioned by The Do Good Fund, a Georgia non-profit whose mission is to acquire and exhibit contemporary photography made in the American South. I was Do Good's inaugural Artist-in-Residence in Greensboro, AL in May 2015. This portfolio will be accessible this Fall at Duke's Rubenstein Library.

The Andromeda Galaxy from Second Nature is now showing in "Complex Uncertainties: Artists in Postwar America," curated by Rachel Reese, Associate Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art. 

"Lauren Henkin’s works question how nature is presented and perceived through photography and technology. This 8-part photograph is part of Henkin’s eScapes series, wherein she downloaded copyright-free images from Wikipedia—in this case a NASA photo of the Andromeda Galaxy—and then re-photographed the images on her computer monitor in great detail with a large format camera." — Rachel Reese
