ABOUT THE JUROR :

SÉAN ALONZO HARRIS


These are a few of my favorite things: my daughter, Enrica. My wife, Elizabeth. Helen Levitt, Irving Penn, Roy DeCarava and James VanDerZee. Langston Hughes. Howard Zinn. John Coltrane, Charles Mingus, and Nina Simone. My cat, Minny. My dog, Frida. Deardorff 8 x 10 field cameras. Platinum and palladium printing. Baseball. Fixed gear track bikes. Backyard barbecues.

My photographic education began in my childhood and runs through the Art Institute of Boston, studies abroad in Italy and closer to home at Maine Media Workshops. I established my career in commercial, fine art and editorial photography in Maine, Boston and New York. I work with a broad range of editorial, educational and corporate clients including Mother Jones, Yankee Magazine, USA Today, LL Bean, Harvard Radcliffe Magazine, Atlantic Rethink, J.P. Morgan Chase and Cathay Pacific Airline. My professional practice includes teaching at Maine Media Workshops and collaborative, community-driven projects with nonprofit organizations. I have received multiple grants and awards from the Maine Arts Commission, a formal proclamation from the 121st Maine Legislature in recognition of my work and was named by Maine Magazine as one of the “60 Most Collectible Artists in Maine.”

My work is marked by a fine art sensibility and an emphasis on environmental portraits. My creative process draws from a wide range of photographic traditions and methods and is driven by an authentic connection to my subjects and my clients. I’m genuinely curious about peoples’ lives and the experiences that shape their world.
