Whenever color appears in a photograph, color becomes an essential element of the image. When used well, color can coalesce with the other elements of the image to create an atmosphere, an emotional response, a sense of place. When bold color is used in bold ways, the result becomes a celebration of light.
For this exhibit, we seek images that effectively use color, whether to enhance the image in subtle ways, or to create a bold color statement that is the centerpiece of the image. All capture methods and processes are welcome.
We are very pleased that Jeff Curto will be jurying and curating this exhibition. He will select approximately 35 images for exhibition in the gallery, and 40 for our Online Gallery. All 75 selected images will be reproduced in the exhibition print catalog and remain permanently on our website, with links to photographer’s URL.
Submission: $39 for 5 images, $6 each additional
