Fairfield Museum’s annual IMAGES juried photography exhibition features some of the most stunning and expected work of area photographers. After studying nearly 1,000 entries submitted by professional, amateur, and student photographers, the judges selected the work of 55 finalist exhibitors to display at the museum. At the Preview Gala, which kicked off the exhibition, two shutterbugs took home grand prizes. Torrance York’s photo, Refractions 3/19/12 #1150, featuring her seven-year-old daughter, won the Grand Prize in the Professional Serious Amateur Category. Torrance’s win snagged her a solo art show at Southport Galleries this fall. Also taking home an award was Audrey Ryan of Fairfield, who was named the Student Grand Prize Winner for her self-portrait. The IMAGES exhibition also features the work of Philip Trager, a renowned photographer famous for his stirring photography of dance and architecture. The work of the 55 finalists and prizewinners will be on display at the Fairfield Museum through July 21.
