Ann Pegelow Kaplan publishes on VASA, media arts website
Kaplan's photographs included on VASA, the media arts website produced out of Vienna, Austria.
Ann Pegelow Kaplan, assistant professor in the Department of Art and Art History, published photographs from her Transit series on the international media arts website VASA Project. Produced out of Vienna, Austria, VASA has published the images as part of the international juried exhibition of the Society of Photographic Education, the national membership organization for visual art photographers in higher education.
Kaplan's Transit series explores lingering racial segregation, looking at public transit as a microcosm of simultaneous physical proximity and social isolation. The work is part of her Conversations & Confrontations project, which follows autobiographical threads to explore contemporary instances of oppression.
Kaplan was one from ten photographers chosen internationally by jurors Catherine Lord, Emerita Professor of Art at University of California Irvine, a distinguished writer, artist, and curator whose work addresses issues of feminism, cultural politics, and colonialism; and Leslie King-Hammond, Graduate Dean Emeritus and Founding Director of the Center for Race and Culture at Maryland Institute College of Art.
