Photographer Sasha Phyars-Burgess Receives 2018-19 Diane Dammeyer Fellowship
The Columbia College Chicago Photography Department announces the recipient of the 2018-19 Diane Dammeyer Fellowship in Photographic Arts and Social Issues as Sasha Phyars-Burgess. Phyars-Burgess, who has a BA from Bard College and an MFA from Cornell University, has exhibited work nationally and internationally.
The Diane Dammeyer Fellowship is a unique collaboration between Columbia’s Photography Department and Heartland Alliance, a leading global anti-poverty organization. The fellowship creates a space for a socially engaged photographer to produce a compelling and dynamic body of work highlighting human rights and social issues. The fellowship is a nine-month commitment during the academic year that “will culminate with a public presentation, exhibition and/or publication of the fellow’s newly created body of work at the completion of the fellowship period.”
There will be a Welcome Reception and Artist Talk with Phyars-Burgess on Wednesday, September 12.
