Congratulations Julie Blackmon for receiving the National Silver in Photography at the 2015 Independent Publisher Awards for Julie Blackmon: Homegrown!
The IPPY Awards, launched oringially in 1996, are designed to bring increased recognition to titles published by independent authors and publishers. This year’s 19th annual IPPY competition attracted over 2,700 entries spanning across the United States, the District of Columbia, six Canadian provinces, and ten countries overseas.
Following the sold-out success of Domestic Vacations, Homegrown captures Blackmon’s ever-evolving talent for portraying the tension between the harmony and disarray of domestic life. Included in this new volume are 40 works made from 2009-2014, an interview of the artist by Academy Award winning actress Reese Witherspoon, as well as an insightful introduction by the renowned poet Billy Collins. -Radius Books

Visual jokes and puns are plentiful. But so are family mysteries, childhood psychodramas and painterly richness. -Michael Upchurch Seattle Times
