The 2019 JSI Excellence in Photography Award Exhibition pulls two project series from Corona Benjamin’s two-plus decades career that lay out a century’s worth of history in her native Mexico. The photographs of “Graneros del Pueblo” and “Two Million Homes for México” are records of transformation, a chronicle of political pressures as expressed in infrastructure. Yielding geographic and aesthetic evidence of shifts in national agenda and power, these images confront viewers with the material impacts of the collective will. Woodbury University's JSI presents the prestigious annual award to an early or mid-career artist whose work embodies the legacy of architectural photographer Julius Shulman. It features a notable roster of recipients, including Benny Chan, Todd Eberle, Hélène Binet, Grant Mudford, Pedro E. Guererro, Catherine Opie, Richard Barnes, and Iwan Baan. Starting June 28, Corona Benjamin will have a solo exhibition at the WUHO Gallery in Hollywood.
