2009 Santa Fe Prize for Photography
Sentimental Education has been awarded the 2009 Santa Fe Prize. for Photography

2009 juror was Charlotte Cotton, Curator and Head of the Wallis Annenberg Department of Photography,
Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles, CA
She wrote of the work:
"I have chosen Hiroyo Kaneko as the recipient of the Santa Fe Prize for Photography because, for me, the work
and her artist's statement really intrigued me, perhaps even confused me at first. It is often the case for me
that the first time I experience an enduring photographic project, it doesn't entirely reveal itself to me. I kept
returning to Hiroyo Kaneko's images of her family bathing in hot tubs. I had questions about the work -
is the subject of Japanese bathing with its visually seductive mis-en-scene make this project inherently too
beautiful? What does the range in her use of portraiture say about her subjects and relationships to them?
In essence, I needed a little bit of time to become comfortable with the better than formulaic way that Hiroyo
Kaneko works and to trust that the ambiguous and unexpected threads that her practice weaves are both
interesting and enduring. I appreciate the subtle layers of thought and observation that underpin her practice
and I really look forward to seeing how the amazing support that the Santa Fe Prize for Photography
offers will impact on her photography."
