About the Honorees

Born in Taipei, Annie Ling is a Canadian artist and documentary photographer currently based in Brooklyn. Select clients include The New York Times, Courrier International, and New York Magazine. Most recently, her work has been exhibited in Germany (Lumix Photo Festival), South Korea (Gwanju Biennale), Finland (NYPH Awards), Canada (Magenta Flash Forward), and throughout the US. Annie was the recipient of New York Foundation of the Arts (NYFA) 2013 Fellowship for Photography. In a Floating Population, her recent solo exhibition at the Museum of Chinese in America, Annie establishes a deep connection with the people and spaces of Chinatown. She rejects the stereotypes and surface impressions that characterize so many images of the neighborhood and spends time with those she photographs - immigrants and the elderly - both alone and with their families.

Signe Nielsen has been practicing as a landscape architect and urban designer in New York since 1978. Her body of work has renewed the environmental integrity and transformed the quality of spaces for those who live, work and play in the urban realm. A Fellow of the ASLA, she is the recipient of over 100 national and local design awards for public open space projects and is published extensively in national and international publications. Ms. Nielsen is a Professor of Urban Design and Landscape Architecture at Pratt Institute in both the Graduate and Undergraduate Schools of Architecture and currently serves as President for the Public Design Commission of the City of New York. Born in Paris, Ms. Nielsen holds degrees in Urban Planning from Smith College; in Landscape Architecture from City College of New York; and in Construction Management from Pratt Institute.

Damaris Reyes is the Executive Director of Good Old Lower East Side and has been organizing around issues like public/private housing, land use, and economic security for more than 15 years. She sits on the Association for Neighborhood Housing & Development board, the Center for Neighborhood Leadership advisory board, and the Land Use, Zoning & Housing Committee of Manhattan Community Board 3. She Chair's the Community Steering Committee of the Weill Cornell Medical College Environmental Health Core and LES Ready!, a disaster preparedness network. Damaris has received numerous honors, including the New York Women's Foundation Neighborhood Leadership Award and the Rockefeller Foundation/Municipal Arts Society Jane Jacobs Medal. Damaris has been partnering with HSC since 2005, providing significant leadership on local community-driven land-use issues and post-Sandy recovery efforts.
