Juror's Statement

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.

-Russell Joslin

Call for Entry

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.
