Aesthetica Art Prize Call for Entries Countdown: Artist Pamela Z. Daum

Previous Aesthetica Art Prize finalists include photographer Pamela Z. Daum, whose Same Scene, Different Day, aka SSDD, is part of an ongoing infrared series of the view of West Twin Lake from her house, which she captures each day. The bones of the landscape remain static and suggest a reassurance of permanence, though the atmosphere and sky speak of constant change, evoking the ephemeral nature of memory.

Pamela Z. Daum’s photographs are currently on display in Times Square, New York. She also was selected by Women’s Caucus for Art in their Best of 2014 Exhibit, ARC Gallery, Chicago. She has been awarded a residency at Helene Wurlitzer Foundation in Taos, NM, and has received grants from United Arts of Central Florida, and Capelli d’Angeli Foundation. Her photography is included in the permanent collections of Florida Gulf Coast University and Orange County, Orlando. Select publications include Witness Magazine; Brevity Magazine; and Florida Oasis: Harry P. Leu Gardens.
