Derrick Jefferies received 2008 GAP Award funding for a small light box to shoot on in addition to a large light box to display prints. His work “champions the ubiquitous object or material and how it can surprise, befuddle, or transcend its everyday connotation.” Derrick mostly shoots semi-transparent objects with the aid of a light box and, after digitally combining photographs together, creates organic scenarios that imply movement or biological imperatives.
