Juliana Beasley Gets Aaron Siskind Fellowship

Good news for someone else: Juliana Beasley is one of the six recipients for the Aaron Siskind Individual Fellowships of 2009!
The other photographers are:
Eric Gottesman, Cambridge, MA
Deana Lawson, Brooklyn, NY
Andrew Miksys, Seattle, WA
Oliver Nowak, Elmhurst, NY
Lori Waselchuk, Baton Rouge, LA
Why should I care? Do I know J.B.? No, I don't, but her book Lapdancer answered some questions I had about men and women at a time when I needed some was deeper than anyone knew. And her current project The Rockaways is one of my favorites and its exciting to see it grow in real time before our eyes on her blog and her site. Also, she lives in Jersey City, N.J. which is where my dad is from. No, I've never been there either, but I always thought it sounded like a curious place. Sometimes you just find yourself rooting for a project that seems destined for good things. The Rockaways is that project.
