$10,000 for the travel and research costs associated with producing a book on the photojournalist, organized by Jean Bubley and archivist Tracy Schmid. This book will be written by photo-historian Bonnie Yochelson and published by Aperture Foundation. Bubley was a leading photojournalist between the 1940s and the 1960s and worked for the United States government, Standard Oil, and magazines such as Life, Ladies Home Journal, and Look. Described by some as a quiet observer, Bubley captured many poignant and private moments of children, city life, and hospital environments as well as hauntingly striking photographs of oil rigs.
