Juror: Elizabeth Avedon
Gallery exhibition: July 18 - August 10, 2019
Exhibition prints due: July 5, 2019

Juror's Statement

Seventy percent of the world's surface is covered by water. It shimmers, it soothes, it heals, it brings joy. It can be devastating in its destructive force, and equally devastating by its absence.

How fortunate we are to be able to travel to places where clean water is still abundant that we can swim and play, document and create art, in and around it. It is easy to take for granted, considering it may soon be our most expensive commodity.

The magic of the submitted images ranged from the very realistic, documenting the fragility of our disappearing glaciers, to the mysterious, focusing on the beauty and perfection of even the smallest precious drop.

The Juror's Award goes to Olaf Otto Becker, who photographed the measuring station Swiss Camp, Greenland, where glaciologists and climate researchers work on predicting the planet's future. This is Point 660, a formidable landscape and popular tourist spot, where taking photographs of one another may soon be over. In one hundred years Becker’s photographs may be all that's left to view of this extraordinary world.  

The Director's Award goes to Lynn Savarese and her image Rage. Lynn has photographed some of the world’s more colossal waterfalls, this one being one of Iceland’s tallest.

Honorable Mention goes to Leslie Jean-BartSandra Chen Weinstein, and Cate Wnek.

Thank you all for your entries and showing the many sides to Water. Each of your images changed me in some way.

     — Elizabeth Avedon

Our relationship with water is complex. It sustains life. It’s a source of beauty and wonder, and is itself an environment for a staggering variety of life. It can be devastating in its destructive force, and equally devastating by its absence. But that does not diminish the joy and serenity it can provide us in its many forms. For this exhibit, we seek images that describe our relationship with the many facets of water.
