Each week, The Cummer will be highlighting each of the 50 artists represented in the upcoming Folio Weekly Invitational Artist Exhibition, on view at the Museum from August 24 – December 2.
Marcy Appelbaum, a Jacksonville resident for nearly 25 years, is a free-lance Pulitzer Prize nominee and a Florida State and National award-winning photographer. She is a gifted visual storyteller.
“Documenting people and their lives allows me to capture who people are at any given moment in time. Their connections to each other — and ultimately to my audience — makes me grateful to my subjects and the candor they give to my lens, memorializing those brief moments in time that the eye can often miss or that we’re otherwise too busy to notice ”
Appelbaum worked as a staff photojournalist at The Jacksonville Business Journal, The Daytona Beach News Journal, The DeLand Sun News, and The Florida Times Union for several years and entered into the digital world early on.
Recent shows include Strike Jax, an on-going participation in the international traveling show The M.I.L.K. (Moments in Intimacy, Laughter and Kinship) Book Series, and Women in Photojournalism. Although her passion is black and white, the Folio Weekly Invitational Artists Exhibit at The Cummer marks her first showing in digital color. Her work has been published in many publications, including Time magazine, Rolling Stone, Golf Digest, and Child Magazine. She is currently available for on location assignments, life cycle events, and portraiture.
