Congratulations to Jan Rattia, who was selected as the recipient of the 2017 Carol Crow Memorial Fellowship at the Houston Center for Photography:
HCP is pleased to announce the winners of their 2017 Fellowships, juried by Andy Adams of FlakFoto. Each winner will receive a $3,000 honorarium, a solo exhibition at HCP’s galleries, and a feature in spot magazine.
Jan Rattia, winner of the Carol Crow Memorial Fellowship, has produced his series of work “Tease” by traveling around the US to photograph members of a singularly and largely misunderstood fraternity: male strippers. In his images, he tries to go beyond what most people would expect and/or know of men in this profession and photograph backstage along with at-home portraits to create a richer depiction about the men and their stories.
Jan’s artworks will be on view in a solo exhibition at the Houston Center for Photography May 12 – July 2, 2017, with an opening reception and artist talk on the evening of Friday, May 12th.
(Lovely portrait of) Bravo, Jan!
