During the process of making my selections for the Uncanny: Surreal Photography exhibition, I was reminded of the ability of photography, as a medium, to relate to the subconscious and of its kinship with the dream world. Though photography is often considered a means to convey what is real, it also has the ability to convey and suggest the unseen, imaginary or mysterious. Many of the photographers whose work I considered and ultimately chose for this exhibition seem to have a strong intuitive sense of this, and I was fascinated by their various interpretations of the theme. I hope that viewers will be equally surprised and captivated with the works presented here.
Photography often astonishes us with its ability to record surface appearances with remarkable accuracy. But it is also a medium that permits profound introspection through the creation of dream-like, fantastic, surreal images. For Uncanny: Surreal Photography, juror Russell Joslin chose forty photos for exhibition at PhotoPlace Gallery from December 16th through January 14th. He also selected an additional thirty-five photos for the gallery's "Online Annex." All selected work will be included in a full-color exhibition catalogue available for purchase.
