Silverprint Photofusion Analogue Black & White Photography Award 2014

Alongside our Hotshoe Photofusion Award we also held the Silverprint Photofusion Analogue Black & White Photography Award announced at the launch of SALON/14 last week. After much deliberation, Silverprint gallery manager Fraser Carr Miles and Photofusion Darkroom manager Nick Jones selected the winner: Selina Mayer for her image titled ‘Erin in New York’ from the series Some American Women.

Mayer photographed a number of women she met on her travels across America this Summer. Admiration and fondness comes across in her image, she speaks of those she met in a heart warming manner:

‘They became my friends and my collaborators, and they made a vast, peculiar and unfamiliar country feel like home.’

Selina lives and works from her studio and darkroom in north London, currently the primary focus of her practice is on figurative and portrait photography.
