Platteforum: I Am I : Anna Newell Jones Denver Contemporary Photography

Platteforum: I Am I. 2004.

Local photographer Anna Newell blends in perfectly at Platteforum, where she just completed a year in residence at the lower downtown gallery dedicated to combining art and education for a young and often at-risk constituency. Newell’s natural, unposed images tell you right off the bat that she’s a photographer of the people, with a candid eye for bubbling humanity. That’s all made clear in her closing show at the gallery, I Am I, a collection of three-by-five foot prints overlaid with writings by her subjects and collaborators, a group of girls from the Rocky Mountain Mutual Housing Authority. “Most have never been to a gallery downtown. It’s given them an opportunity to see something outside of their world,” Newell says of her charges, who gracefully stepped up to the challenge of learning more about themselves through journal writing, picture taking and the creation of artist books. The exhibit gives a face to that self-expression. “It’s so brave of the artist to let the girls paint on her prints,” Platteforum director Judy Anderson adds. The result, Newell knows is stunning.
