Juror's Statement

I have always been fascinated by the female psyche in all of its mysterious dimensions. When PhotoPlace Gallery invited me to curate this exhibit entitled “Celebrating Women,“ I was excited to be part of this process.

After looking at over a great many submissions, I can honestly say I was immensely impressed by their high caliber and variety. There was a wide selection of work in many categories: the classical, the documentary, the spiritual, the conceptual, and the experimental. I must confess that at times it seemed like comparing apples and oranges, so I tried to include the best images from each of these categories.

In the end, we all want to be astonished by a new photograph. We want an exhibition to inspire us and to touch us by revealing parts of the human condition in new ways. This collection of photographs certainly did that for me.

I congratulate all the participating photographers for using their own unique talents and visual voices in recording and celebrating the amazing women in this exhibition and book. 

- Joyce Tenneson

About the Juror

“Every so often an artist comes along who defies the easy labeling that curators and critics feel obliged to stick on everything under their rapacious gaze. In spite of lacking obvious inspirations and role models, these artists manage to create deeply felt, radical works that an extraordinary number of viewers respond to with fervor and pleasure.”

- Karl-Peter Gottschalk, photography critic, on Joyce Tenneson 

Internationally lauded as one of the most influential photographers of her generation, Joyce Tenneson has been published in books and major magazines, and exhibited in museums and galleries worldwide. Her portraits have appeared on covers for magazines such as: TimeLifeNewsweekPremiereEsquire and The New York Times Magazine.

Vicki Goldberg, critic and author, writes of Tenneson: “Tenneson possesses a unique vision which makes her photographs immediately recognizable. She creates enigmatic and sensuous images that are timeless and haunting.”

Tenneson is the author of sixteen books including the best seller, Wise Women, which was featured in a six-part Today Show series. She is the recipient of many awards, including Fine Art Photographer of the Year in 2005 (Lucie Awards), and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Professional Photographers of America in 2012. In a poll conducted by American Photo Magazine, readers voted Tenneson among the ten most influential women in the history of photography. In the Fall of 2014, Fotografiska Museum, in Stockholm, Sweden, mounted a large retrospective of her work which was seen by approximately 30,000 people. Tenneson’s work has been exhibited in museums around the globe and is part of many private and public collections.

In addition to her photography exhibits and books, Tenneson has taught master photography classes in the U.S. and Europe for over 40 years.

Call for Entries

For this exhibition we seek images that will contribute to a mosaic of what it means to be female: the mystery, the diversity, the enduring and the changeable. Photographs of women of any age are encouraged that reveal aspects of the feminine core—its physicality, emotional complexity, strength and vulnerability, and unique place in humanity.

Any capture or process is welcome.

We are immensely pleased that Joyce Tenneson will be jurying and curating this exhibition. She will select approximately 35 images for exhibition in the gallery, and 35 for our Online Gallery Annex. The recipients of the Juror’s Award and the Director’s Award will each be entitled to a personal portfolio review by Ms. Tenneson.
