Forman wins three awards in European photography competition
Alum and resident scholar earns honors at Prix de la Photographie Paris for 'Le Cirque Imaginaire'
A series of artworks that combines photography and painting, “Le Cirque Imaginaire,” by Fran Forman ’67, recently won three awards from the Prix de la Photographie Paris, one of Europe’s most prestigious juried photography competitions.
Forman is a resident scholar at the Women’s Studies Research Center and taught studio art in the spring. As a Brandeis undergraduate, Forman studied art and sociology, received an M.S.W. in psychiatric social work at Simmons College before receiving an M.F.A. from Boston University in graphic design and photography.
She took home awards for fine art, fine art collage and fine art book proposal. Her work, which combines photographic and illustrative skills with her passion for surrealism, has earned her numerous honors in the past including at the International Photography Awards, the Julia Margaret Cameron awards, the Prix de la Photographie and the Worldwide Photography Gala Awards. In addition to Brandeis, Forman teaches at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.
This summer, her work will be on display at the Panopticon Gallery in Boston, the Davis Orton Gallery in New York, Espace Dupon in Paris and TCC Photo Gallery in Texas.
