Candice Camille Jackson, a Boston-based artist, holds a BFA from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. Rooted in a childhood experience of loss, Jackson's fascination with portraiture emerged as a means to archive cherished memories by photographing family members. Evolving over the years, her motivation has expanded into experimental techniques, including printing on gold leaf, to convey the sacred nature of the individuals she photographs. Jackson's work is an attempt to reflect both personal narratives and universal truths.

Brittany is currently the Photography Department Equipment + Studio Manager at the Rhode Island School of Design.

 

Alice Romanov is a photographer and writer based in Philadelphia making work about her Russian-Ukrainian background, childhood memories, and passed-down stories. Alice’s most recent work revolves around understanding generational wounds through pensive investigations into her mother’s and her memories of Russia and Ukraine. She integrates text in her photography, first-person essays, and poems to draw connections to her experiences, where reflections of an uncertain future exist. She received her BFA from Massachusetts College of Art and Design. In 2023, she received the Gertrude Kasebier Travel Grant Award from Massachusetts College of Art and Design to photograph in Poland and other European countries while exploring similar landscapes and cultural complexities to her own. Alice has been featured in Float Magazine, F-Stop Magazine, and other small publications, and has been in multiple group exhibitions at Massachusetts College of Art and Design and Panopticon Gallery in Boston.
