Ross Mantle

Noteworthy: Mantle was one of two winners of the Fellowship 13 International Photography Competition, a juried photography competition hosted by the Silver Eye Center for Photography in the South Side. His series, “California, Pennsylvania,” drew inspiration from the legend that the Washington County town of the same name was founded by gold-rush settlers who only made it as far as the Monongahela, and named the town for their destination. The series will go on display at Silver Eye on Jan. 25, with an artists' talk at 10 a.m. Jan. 26.

Age: 27

Residence: Mantle splits his time between his hometown of Bethel Park and an apartment/studio in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Family: Father, Tom, and mother, Monica.

Education: Bachelor of Arts in visual communications, Ohio University, 2008

Background: Mantle's work has been commissioned by ESPN The Magazine, Monocle, Bloomberg Businessweek and Fader.

Quote: “The series is about trying to leave a place, trying to get to a place and a lot of the restless spaces in between. ... It means a lot to me when I get to show my work in the place that I'm from.”
