“I Don’t Know the Names of Flowers,” an exhibition by Constantiner Fellowship award winner, Kristina E. Knipe, in the Department of Photography & Imaging at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, will go on view November 23, 2013 and will remain on view through January 18, 2014. Knipe received the Fellowship for her ongoing body of work exploring the world of those who “self-injure.”
Beginning in 2012, Knipe posted advertisements on the New York City Craigslist, hoping to open up existing narratives surrounding this subculture. Knipe, having struggled with self-injury since she was 14, believes“those who self-injure are largely misunderstood. Each individual has a different relationship to this act; many harbor an immense amount of guilt about their scars, often going to great lengths in order to hide them.”
Originally from Allentown, Pennsylvania, Knipe earned her BFA from New York University’s Tisch School of Arts in 2012, and received an award from the Photographer’s Fellowship Fund at the Center of Photography Woodstock in 2013. Most recently she was named a finalist in the international Critical Mass competition.
Established in 2005, the Leon and Michaela Contantiner Fellowship enables one graduating senior from the Department of Photography & Imaging each year to pursue a project. The Constantiners are collectors interested in supporting promising young artists.

ISO Magazine is looking for Spring 2014 gallery submissions!
For our Spring 2014 issue, we are looking for traces: hints of the past visible in the present. A trace can be an outline of a place or its people. Photographs provide us with the surface and ask us to explore the layers beneath, be they real or imagined.
Please respond to the theme by sending a small portfolio, series, or stand-alone images to ISO’s photo editors at
Where is your studio exactly and how long have you been working there? I recently moved my studio from an old tobacco warehouse that was five blocks away to a new studio I built behind my house. I was in the old location for over 12 years and it was one of…
