EMERGING PHOTOGRAPHY CONTENDER: JOSHUA SARIÑANA

Californian photographer Dr. Joshua Sariñana obtained his neuroscience degree at the University of California, Los Angeles and at MIT; soon after he became a research fellow at Harvard Medical School where he studied the computational processing of spatial navigation. His series Image of Structure focuses on a architectural structure near his workplace.

He writes in his artist’s statement: “Because I work across the street from the Stata Center at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology— which contains the Computer Science and Artificial Laboratory (CSAIL) and Department of Linguistics and Philosophy, among other things — I come across the building several times a day. It’s an easy building to shoot in that it lends itself to photography, and I’m constantly bumping into people taking a photo of it. However, it’s difficult to make a unique image of the building that stands out from the plethora of photos online”.
