Juror: Karen E. Haas
Gallery Exhibition: March 28th - April 25th, 2013

Juror's Statement:
Being asked to jury an exhibition like this is always a fascinating and humbling experience. Fascinating because as museum curators we are always happy to have the opportunity to see so many photographs at one time and yet humbling because it reminds us just how much terrific work is being made out in the world that we are unaware of! I applaud all of you working in black and white that submitted work to the gallery and hope you know how difficult it was to narrow the many images down to just 75. I was impressed by the range and quality of the photographs—from still lifes and close-ups to portraits and nudes, and from landscapes, both rural and urban, to travel, social documentary, and street photography—and pleasantly surprised to see how many far-flung artists took part. This was a wonderfully eye-opening experience for me and I hope will be for you as well.

- Karen E. Haas

About the Juror
Karen Haas is Curator of The Lane Collection at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. The unprecedented collection of over 6000 images includes 2500 photographs by Edward Weston, the entire photographic estate of Charles Sheeler, and 500 works by Ansel Adams. Arbus, Brancusi, Bravo, Cunningham, Frank, Fuss, Goldin, Kertesz, Lange, Michals, Modotti, Morell, Penn, Steichen, Strand, Sudek, and many more round out the amalgam of masters over which Ms. Haas watch. We are so pleased Karen Haas has agreed to return to the task of jurying for PhotoPlace Gallery. Her keen eye and experience are perfectly suited for the exhibition "Portraiture: Expression and Gesture."

Call for Entries
For many years, photography was a black and white art. Or sepia and cream, or a range of beautiful grays. This exhibition honors those aspects of photography by seeking monochrome work that does not depend on bright color. Digital prints, traditional gelatin silver work, and alternative process images were all welcome.

We are honored that Karen E. Haas, the Lane Curator of Photographs at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, was the juror for this exhibition. As her many years in the field of museum photography attests, Karen is an expert on black and white photography.
