Eight winners and ten honorable mentions were selected for the 2011 Hearst 8x10 Photography Biennial from over 4,600 entries from across the U.S. and 70 other countries. Brandon Shulman was awarded an Honorable Mention for his series A Portrait of America Left Behind.

"A Portrait of America Left Behind is a photographic study that I have been conducting over the past two years. The photographs represent the presence that humanity plays on the land even when they are not in view. The objects and buildings that we create for our needs, and our discarding when they are not. Zig-zagging my way thru 13 states, 15,000 miles over 3 trips, 2 months and 100’s of hours in my darkroom it has yet come to an end."
