Juror: Our juror for Forsaken is Terri Cappucci. Cappucci is a photographic artist who grew up in Bernardston, Massachusetts, a small farming community on the Vermont border. She began her career as staff photojournalist for a large daily newspaper and moved on to full time freelance work with the Boston Globe and the New York Times. Terri is best known for her twenty-year documentary in South Africa, a film-based project photographed from 1994-2014 which was on display in Doric Hall at the Massachusetts State House, in Boston. She received her MFA in Photography from the University of Massachusetts in Amherst and is a working artist and educator in western Massachusetts.
Her current project "Rescued Existence" is a documentary depicting places that no longer inhabit life and have been left untouched as they were before the space was no longer occupied. The project also includes audio sound effects along with a narrated story.
In recent years, Terri has taken her photographic experience and merged her expressive and intentional compositions, to create prints using historical photographic processes. For more than twenty-years, she has worked out of her home studio where she is committed to utilizing one of the many printing techniques, to match what she feels the image is commanding. She spends much of her time exploring the depth of the Gumoil Process; an uncommon practice that combines historical and contemporary handmade printing methods. Some of Cappucci's other processes include bromoil, polaroid emulsion lifts, wet plate photography and giclee film transfer.
