Andrew Waits's (MFA Photography '17) photography book, "Aporia," was named to the MACK First Book Award Shortlist. His work explores insurmountable internal contradictions through black and white imagery on film.
The First Book Award is a photography publishing prize open to photographers who have not previously had a book published by a third party publishing house. It was established in 2012 to support emerging photographers. Each year, a diverse array of international nominators are asked to recommend suitable projects. Waits's book, APORIA, was chosen from a group of nearly 400 finalists whose works find a voice through a bound format.
