An exhibition of photographs, including those by UALR art history major Alex Leme opened in New York last week.
En Focoâ€™s New Works #14 features photographers who question the traditional role of documentary photography to bear witness, by investigating its subjective, intimate and personal nature.
Juror Andy Adams, editor and publisher of Flak Photo, selected Leme and fellow photographers Rona Chang, Susana Raab, Daniel Ramos, and Sarah Sudhoff through a national call for submissions.
Another of Lemeâ€™s photographs was published last week in first issue of LPV magazine.
He is one of four student finalists in the National Best College Photography Competition for Forum Magazine. This will be the second year in a row he has been picked to be included in annual publication.
