Jane Yudelman:

About

Jane Yudelman was born in South Africa, grew up in England and now divides her time between Massachusetts and Maine. Having worked professionally for many years in poverty-alleviation programmes around the world, she turns to photography to remind herself of the beauty that exists in a world of economic, social and political injustice. Her photography focuses on discovering abstract expressions of this beauty in the natural world: in small patches of ice, on the water surfaces, among leaves in tidal pools. Jane’s work has been exhibited in galleries across the United States and has won a number of awards. Her images can be found in corporate collections in Maine and private collections in the United States and Europe.

Claire Martin:

Claire Martin (1980) began her career by studying a degree in Social Work, however, she changed her focus to Photography when she realized that change can also be effected through this medium. Since beginning her career pursuing personal projects in 2007, she has focused her lens on marginalized communities within prosperous nations.

She met inhabitants of Vancouver’s Downtown East Side, who live in one of the worst urban slums in North America, ironically, in a city known as “the worlds most liveable”. In the United States, she focused on Slab City’s inhabitants, a community of squatters who live in a former military base in the California’s desert. Most recently, in Australia she has documented people choosing a life of poverty in the forested communes of NSW’s controversial Nimbin area.

This work has been recognized with a Prix Pictet nomination (2012), a Lead Academy Award (2011), the Magnum and Inge Morath Foundation Inge Morath Award (2010), by Reportage by Getty Images and The Sony World Photography Awards (2009), and with an IPA nomination (2008). A limited edition Zine was created, and sold out in 2012 by Editions Bessard, and the complete triptych was exhibited at Image Singulieres in Sete, France in May 2013.
