Spring 2012 : : Interview by Melanie McWhorter in Issue 16 of Finite Foto Published April, 2012
""I have known Terri Warpinski for years as part of my participation in
Society for Photographic Education's National Conference. On Sunday
morning of this year's conference, when the event was waning and most
photographers were in standing in the checkout line and saying their last
goodbyes in the grand lobby of the Hyatt Regency in San Francisco, I
bumped in to photographers Margaret Stratton and Terri Warpinski. ...
Warpinski opened her portfolio to reveal an image filled with crosses. With
the theme of faith on my mind for this issue, I was initially drawn to the
work. In the interview below, Warpinski and I discuss some of the topics of
this meeting and expand on her thoughts for the project Surface Tension."

Stamatina Gregory January-April 2012
"Warpinski’s project is informed by a decade of regular travel near
and across the US-Mexico and Israeli-Palestinian borders, a period of
time that saw the construction of physical barriers between states,
and their accompanying brutal expressions of power. In
photographing two sets of landscapes that have been repurposed to
articulate division—one familiar, one foreign—she resists a
metaphoric collapse of the two, instead providing a parallel reading.
Both series present radically different constructions of subjectivity in
relation to the border, yet are analogous in their movements between
the seeming intractability of geopolitics and its inevitable change—its
escalation or demise—over time." -Stamatina Gregory
