Good portraits give us insight into the subject; great portraits can give us insight into what it is to be human.
For this exhibit, we seek portraits, self- or otherwise, that go beyond the surface to explore a deeper vision of the subject. A flicker of expression, a gesture, the surroundings, the presence of an object or another person are just a few ways in which deeper aspects of the subject can be revealed.
All capture methods and processes are welcome.
We are very pleased that Elizabeth Avedon will be jurying and curating this exhibition. She will select approximately 35 images for exhibition in the gallery, and 40 for our Online Gallery.
