Medium Festival: Amanda Dahlgren
Featuring photographers seen at the Medium Photography Festival in San Diego….
It was a pleasure to meet Amanda Dahlgren at the Medium Festival and discover that she is a photographic educator, designer, technician, and craftsman, but above all, she is a photographic artist who has always been fascinated with aesthetics and artistic expression. She brought two projects to the Medium Festival, both looking at how the the housing boom and recent recession have affected areas in Southern California . I was struck by her series, Pre-Abandonded, exploring the idea of aesthetics and almost-built homes that will never see completion.
In addition to teaching and creating her fine art projects, Amanda consults for the VASA Project, an online media center focused on photography, digital video, criticism, visual studies, and new media. She received an MFA in fine art photography from the Academy of Art University in 2011.
