Judith Joy Rosss most recent work is a series of photographs of people in Pennsylvania protesting the war in Iraq, the majority of which were taken at a protest called Eyes Wide Open, organized by the Quaker community. Whether photographing residents of working-class in Freeland, Pa., former Ugandan child soldiers in New York Citys Washington Square Park, or anti-war protestors, Rosss photographs reveal her distinct vision of people and place and the ensuing story each captured image reveals. The personal connection Ross is able to forge with her subjects is unmistakable and results in pictures that are sensitive reflections of both empowerment and vulnerability. With the remarkable ability to transcend socio-economic boundaries with ease, Ross creates touching portraits characterized by their candor, naturalism, and fidelity to each subjects sense of self. They are revelations not only of individuals, but humanity at-large. Judith Joy Ross, born in 1946 in Hazleton, Pa., graduated with a BS from the Moore College of Art, Philadelphia, in 1968 and received a MS degree two years later from the Institute of Design at the Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago. Ross has been exhibiting her photography for the past two decades. Ross is a recipient of numerous honors, including a Guggenheim Fellowship, a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, a Charles Pratt Memorial Award, and an Andrea Frank Foundation Award. Her work can be found in numerous permanent collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Museum Ludwig, Cologne; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and the Victoria & Albert Museum, London.
