(Philadelphia, PA) A photo taken by graphic design alumna Kate Ricci ’11 has been selected for publication in Photographer’s Forum Magazine’s hardcover book, Best of Photography 2011.

Ricci, whose photo is titled “Vehicular Manslaughter,” is also a finalist in the magazine’s 31st annual Spring Photography Contest. Winners will be announced in mid-August. The selected photos will be published in the November 2011 issue of Photographer's Forum Magazine and exhibited at the Brooks Institute Gallery 27 in Santa Barbara, CA.

Ricci said she got involved in the contest by answering a call for entries. She selected a photo that is part of a series, The Misadventures of Polly and Peter Pocket, which features dolls involved in a variety of predicaments.

“It’s exciting to be published and know the judges connected with a photo of mine,” she said. “It’s a fun photo and one of my favorites.”

Gigi McGee, professor of graphic design, said Ricci was a student who took advantage of every opportunity. Her concept was chosen this spring for the 2011 Fashion Show package that included an invitation, poster, tickets, program cover and signage. She also co-designed the 2011 issue of More Magazine, the student publication.

“Both of these projects were professionally printed and made excellent portfolio pieces,” she said. “Another opportunity she seized was a paid internship at ICON Worldwide, an independent marketing company in Switzerland. She will be living and working there from September through November.”
