When checking to find the results of the Center of Fine Art Photography’s Portrait Exhibition, jurored by the impeccable gallerist, Anna Walker Skillman, of Jackson Fine Art in Atlanta, I truly moved by Monika Merva’s winning image. Monika’s project, City of Children, was published by Kehrer Verlag Heidelberg—Berlin in 2011 and the work has been well celebrated. Today, however, I am sharing some of Monika’s other work–portraits and a new project that is in the beginning stages and without a statement. I am also sharing some of her wonderful portraits.
Her image, Doki, won first prize at the C4FAP, but also garnered 2nd place Second Place at the 2011 FotoWeek DC International Awards Competition. Monikas’s work is represented in the permanent collections of the Bibliothèque nationale de France, Paris; Hungarian Museum of Photography, Kecskemét; Worcester Art Museum, Massachusetts; and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
