 Call for Entries

For this exhibit, “a sense of place” is an understanding of the essence of a place as seen through the eyes of the photographer. Using light, composition and content, the photographer evokes a deeper understanding of place by selecting details so that the viewer knows how it smells and feels and sounds there — what it’s like to stand where the photographer stood.

We are seeking well-crafted images that communicate the essence of a place — what it’s like to be there. These images will move us, perhaps tell us stories, and help us understand what the artist found special about this particular place in the world.

All capture methods and processes are welcome.

We are very pleased that Paula Tognarelli will jury the exhibit. She will select approximately 35 images for exhibition in the Middlebury gallery, and up to 40 for our Online gallery. All 75 selected images will be promoted on social media, reproduced in the exhibition print catalog, and remain permanently on our website, with links to photographer’s URL.
