About Judi Bommarito
Judi Bommarito is a Detroit based photographer and an adjunct instructor at the College for Creative Studies, where she also received her BFA. Her poignant photo-documentary entitled “The SPACE Between The Cracks” artfully addresses her mother’s journey with mental illness. This series was featured in a solo exhibition and has been the recipient of numerous awards, most notably, Grand Prize recognition by juror and American photographer, Mary Ellen Mark.
Judi's series "Concealed Reality" includes her explorations of Detroit and documents her observations of beauty, symmetry and color amidst the undertone of abandonment rather than a representation of the decay which is often times depicted in images of Detroit. Her work from this series has been exhibited in Poland and Italy. It has also been included in the Manifest International Photography Annual 7 (INPHA) 2020
