2009 Aperture Prize-winner Alexander Gronsky, Untitled, n.d., from the series The Edge
All of us at Aperture Foundation would like to thank everyone who submitted work to the 2009 Aperture Portfolio Prize. This year, Aperture’s editorial and limited-edition print departments—four staff members and three work scholars in all—reviewed over seven hundred portfolios. Our challenge was to select one top prize and five honorable mentions from this overwhelming response. Thus, we are pleased to present Alexander Gronsky’s The Edge/Pastoral as this year’s winner. Congratulations also to Keliy Anderson-Staley, Off the Grid; Alejandro Cartagena, Lost Rivers; Maureen Drennan, Meet Me in the Green Glen; Jason Hanasik, He Opened Up Somewhere Along the Eastern Shore; and Mark Lyon, Landscapes for the People.
Alexander Gronsky’s work, The Edge/Pastoral, will be included in next week’s Slideluck Potshow presentation at Aperture Gallery. Buy tickets now and come get a first look at this year’s Prize winner’s work!
