John Jenkins III work transforms images of houses to symbolic representations through the use of selective focus, exploring the way in which our world is normally seen and how we comprehend images without the details we are accustomed to seeing. Melissa Juvan is a Houston photographer whose self-portraits analyze variety, beauty, standards of beauty, and the concept of self. Laine Whitcomb's current project, American Ruins documents visually the experience of visiting American ruins – old deserted homes, warehouses, shops, attempting to capture a complex pleasure in decay.
