ICP Announces 2018 Rita and Alex Hillman Foundation Fellowship Recipients
ICP proudly announces the 2018 Rita and Alex Hillman Foundation Fellowship recipients, who will each receive a grant of $10,000 in support of an exemplary photographic project that addresses critical issues in health care and be mentored by esteemed members of ICP’s faculty.
This year’s recipients are:
- Jason Andrew, a 2007 graduate of the Documentary Practice and Visual Journalism program and a 2017 Hillman Foundation fellow, will continue his fellowship for a second year, documenting the emergent issue of young mothers struggling with opiate addiction and their efforts towards recovery.
- Toni Greaves, a 2008 graduate of the Documentary Practice and Visual Journalism program, who will examine the health care workforce via the nursing shortage and explore the relationship between immigration policy and the health care gap.
- Kathryn Harrison, a 2014 graduate of the General Studies in Photography program, who will investigate the relationship between caretaking and caregiving in regards to her own family’s power dynamics and examine the functioning and failing systems that those with mental illness and chronic disease must combat in the United States.
- Philip Montgomery, a 2010 graduate of the Documentary Practice and Visual Journalism program, who will build on his award-winning body of work, Faces of an Epidemic, to explore forms of treatment and harm reduction—including the implementation of Naloxone by law enforcement and first responders—that may offer a pathway forward through the opioid crisis.
Created in 2012 to support emerging photographers who recently graduated from ICP, the Rita and Alex Hillman Foundation Fellowship is open to ICP alumni in each of the Full-Time Programs: the ICP-Bard MFA program, the One-Year Certificate program in General Studies in Photography, the One-Year Certificate program in Documentary Practice and Visual Journalism, and the One-Year Certificate program in New Media Narratives.
