The Magenta Foundation is a charitable arts publishing house, the first of its kind in Canada. It fills the very specific niche of establishing a place for Canadian artists in the international arts community, and it provides a vehicle for galleries to join forces and promote the work of Canadian artists internationally through the publication of books and exhibitions. Magenta will bring the photographic community together and work in tandem with key players to help bring increased recognition to Canadians through U.S. and international representation. Magenta intends to set the standard for community collaboration and partner with other organizations to create the domestic and international presence Canadians need to succeed.
Magenta Flash Forward showcases the future of photography, focusing on emerging talent from Canada, the U.S. and abroad that jurors have identified as having great potential. This year I was selected as an Honorable Mention and will be included in the 2009 Flash Forward-Emerging Photographers 2009 publication to be launched October 2009.
