Awards for Chelbin and Stern

April 13, 2010

Center, a nonprofit organization that supports dedicated and gifted photographers, has been giving annual awards since its founding in 1994. This year we have the honor of congratulating Michal Chelbin and Andrea Stern for receiving honorable mentions from the 2010 Center’s Project Competition and from the Editor’s Choice division of the Choice Awards. In addition, Chelbin is also the recipient of a Director’s Choice award.

The following statements were made by the Editor’s Choice jurors about Stern and Chelbin, two of their honorable mentions:

Andrea Stern’s work deserves recognition for being such a smart and well seen documentation of contemporary subcultures of children.”

Michal Chelbin’s sophisticated portraits of inmates in Russian and Ukranian prisons are rendered in a way that is both hard-edged and dreamy. The grace of each sitter’s pose, combined with the muted palette of their clothing and the interiors give these pictures a quiet power.”
