First and foremost, I would like to sincerely thank all the artists for sharing their inspiring photographic visions and talents with me. I was so impressed by the breadth, depth and ingenuity represented by the submissions for this call. Thank you for making my task both enjoyable and challenging. It was wonderful to discover such thoughtfully considered work.
As one who holds a special affinity for alternative photographic processes, striving for harmony between process and materials along with imagery and content is as essential as masterful execution to me. And while I’m most often moved by images that pique my intellectual curiosity, I also appreciate work that embraces a simple beauty. I seek art that compels me to see differently, forces me to have pause and retains my attention beyond the average viewing experience. I believe that this selection of work will offer the viewer with a refreshingly diverse and excitingly inventive glimpse into the world of alternative photographic arts.
