Juror's Statement

Interaction with light remains the most powerful and mysterious component of the photographer's craft. This exhibition comprises a fine group of images attesting to each photographer's immersion in the various aspects of photographic image-making and the complexity of writing with light. Each image is a gift from the maker, a token of the leasure gained from playing with light.

Call for Entries

Photography – from the Greek words meaning “to write with light.” As photographers know, light is an essential component for any photograph. In FINDING THE LIGHT, we feature photographs whose success as visual images rests on the careful awareness and use of light, whether natural or artificial. The exhibition juror, photographer Don Ross, chose 40 photographs for display at PhotoPlace Gallery. Don also selected 35 additional photographs for the gallery's Online Annex. All selected work will be included in an exhibition catalog available for purchase. To help artists defray costs, PhotoPlace Gallery offers to mat and frame work selected for exhibition free of charge, providing artists print their images to our pre-cut mat and frame sizes.
