ANITA CRUZ-EBERHARD Anita Cruz-Eberhard works in themes by subject and/or media, using multidisciplinary approaches to visual expression, from traditional photography and design techniques, mixed media, to contemporary and new technology. She was born in Zurich and, since the mid-90s, lives and works in New York. Being part of a generation that grew up and lived with multiple cultures, her motivation comes from a wide spectrum of creative and social experiences, and has served both as source of artistic nutrition and inspired her to be an active creative thinker.
Anita Cruz-Eberhard has exhibited nationally and internationally, including at the 4th Singapore Photography Festival, 1st Warsaw Photo Days, 16th Biel/Bienne Festival of Photography, with three different projects at the 19th & 22nd Noorderlicht International Photofestival, 24th Hyères International Photography Festival in France, 2006 Pingyao International Photography Festival in China, among the Kunst Haus Wien (Austria) and Musée de l’Elysée in Lausanne-CH. She has received a Sony World Photography Award and placed as a finalist at the International Photography Awards and the Photographer’s Forum Annual Spring Photography Contest. She earned a BFA with honors from the School for Visual Arts and graduated from the International Center for Photography.
DAVID HOWE David Howe began photographing at 10 years old. In college he directed plays, studied film, and then for more than a decade continued professional work in film, cinematography, and lighting. Following his years on the set, Howe left the moving image world to start a family. In the mid-nineties, he returned to visual art, concentrating on contemporary art, video, and photography. He sought out dialogs with artists whose work he admired, such as Jeff Wall, Thomas Struth, Andreas Gursky, and Hiroshi Sugimoto.
In 2002 Howe returned professionally to camera work, enthusiastically embracing digital media. He studied at the International Center of Photography, New York, intensifying his visual awareness and engaging critical issues and discourses in contemporary art and media. Howe’s studio is in Bushwick, Brooklyn, where he generates his artwork and research. He travels frequently across the United States to photograph, make studio visits, and to continue informing his practice.
