Juried Competition Winner Jenna Westra (Hunter MFA ’15) is a New York based artist working with photography and film. “Problems with representations of the body are central to my work– specifically, how perceived ownership and viewership of images mandate shifting power structures. I use the body as a central tool to speak about themes of intimacy and the gaze. Moving away from documentary tropes and towards image production and representation itself, the resulting images create meaningful form through gesture and body language. My works represent an experience of active communication that is both verbal and not.” 📷: Claudia on Fire Escape,’ 2018. @jjennawestraa #baxterstccny #photography
