Taryn Simon’s artistic medium consists of three equal elements: photography, text, and graphic design. Her works investigate the impossibility of absolute understanding and open up the space between text and image, where disorientation occurs and ambiguity reigns. Simon’s works have been the subject of monographic exhibitions at institutions including Museum of Modern Art, New York (2012), Tate Modern, London (2011); Neue Nationalgalerie, Berlin (2011); Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (2007. Permanent collections include the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Tate Modern, Whitney Museum, Centre Pompidou, and the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art. In 2011 her work was included in the 54th Venice Biennale. She lives and works in New York. Taryn Simon's Lucie Lecture is presented by Phase One and Digital Transitions.

John began his newspaper career at the Chicago Daily News as a photographer in 1969, moving to the Chicago Sun-Times when the Chicago Daily News ceased publication in 1978. In 2009, he celebrates his 40th year as a Chicago photojournalist. He says his greatest joy is being the “eyes” for the people of Chicago on a daily basis and sharing “what I see and what I feel” through the lens of my camera.
John White has received more than 300 awards from international, national and local organizations throughout his career.
Ricky Flores started documenting life in the South Bronx after he purchased a camera with a small inheritance he received from his father in 1980. He embarked on a journey of self-discovery born out of photographing his friends and family during one of the most turbulent times in the history of Bronx and New York City.
Flores has freelanced for The Daily News, The New York Times, The City Sun and The Village Voice. He has been exhibited numerous times by En Foco. Flores is recognized for his work on the attacks on World Trade Center on September 11, 2001 and is a two time winner of the New York Press Publishers Association for Spot News. He has a permanent installation at I.S. 206 in the Tremont section of the Bronx commissioned by the School Construction Authority, New York City Board of Education and New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.
