Monika Sziladi is from Budapest, Hungary, and lives and works in New York City. She studied at the Sorbonne in Paris and in 2010 received her MFA from the Yale University School of Art and Photography. She was awarded the Alice Kimball Traveling Scholarship among other grants and fellowships, notably at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in New York. Sziladi has exhibited widely since 2005 and her shows have been accompanied by several articles and catalogues.
Ribs is from her series Wide Receivers, which presents primarily young women dressed for parties or participating in outrageous scenes at public events. Sziladi is a supreme social observer, and her images are intended to humorously prod the viewer into exploring the effects of social media on contemporary life.
The response to the competition each year has been exciting and brought many talented photographers’ work to the attention of the Museum’s curatorial staff. With the competition, we have added work of twelve very talented arts both experienced and emerging. Limited edition prints of this photograph are available at a cost of $600.
