The Midwest Photographers Publication Project (MP3) series, produced in collabo¬ration with the Museum of Contemporary Photography (MoCP), Chicago, presents the work of three new emerging talents: Kelli Connell, Justin Newhall, and Brian Ulrich. Just as Aperture’s classic Masters of Photography series introduces audiences to the work of established great photog¬raphers, this three-volume set offers an affordable, beautifully produced introduc¬tion to three young artists poised on the brink of stardom. Via digital manipulation, Kelli Connell uses a single individual to represent two sides of an evolving relationship. This char¬acter—the self but also the “other”—repre¬sents what the artist calls “an autobiographi¬cal questioning of sexuality and gender roles that shape the identity of the self in intimate relationships.”

Justin Newhall has spent the past few years following the Lewis and Clark Trail through the Dakotas, Montana, and beyond. His series presents a lyrical exploration of the discovery, speculation, and exploitation that have shaped our treatment of the land, focusing on the hyperboles of tourism as well as the way in which we incorporate history and mythology into the landscape.

Brian Ulrich shoots in malls, grocery stores, and warehouses, documenting the bounty of commercial goods available to consumers and the peculiarities of the places that offer them for sale. Ulrich is interested in how people act in these spaces. From cathartic to catatonic, the shoppers in Ulrich’s pictures may be caught up in fantasy or quite simply overwhelmed, but they are most certainly familiar. Each of these artists will be profiled in an individual volume containing twenty-five images selected from his or her most recent work. They have been chosen for the strength of their work, its resonance with current themes in contemporary photo¬graphic practice, and to represent the qual¬ity of the work cultivated by the Midwest Photographers Project collection at the MoCP.

Founded in 1982 by MoCP, the Midwest Photographers Project is a unique collection of contemporary photography established to promote both prominent and emerg¬ing photographers from Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin. The MP3 series aims to give greater recognition to artists on the verge of national and international prominence. The museum’s curators, Rod Slemmons, Karen Irvine, and Natasha Egan, will each contrib¬ute a text that introduces the work in a criti¬cal context.
