Juror's Comments

I want to thank Patrice Maye and the South Shore Art Center for this opportunity to look at photographs – one of my favorite things to do. 

The jurying process is always exciting – each image a new discovery. 110 artists submitted 384 images for consideration, of these I selected these 49 images from 39 artists for the exhibit.   The jury process was a “blind jury” so I didn’t know the identity of any of the photographers until after the process had ended and was submitted.

I’d like to thank all the artists who shared their views:  landscapes and portraits; multiple exposures, the use of special film and filters –stopping time for that instant to show us a moment lost except through their camera – a permanent memory.

 

All art is a mirror to one’s self, so my response comes from my thoughts and personal history, and my years of looking, which have influenced how I see.  I look at black and white prints differently than those in color.  I spend more time navigating the black and white image because without color to immediately reveal what is there, I slow down and search texture, details, light, and shadow.

 

Because I respond emotionally to visuals… each image selected generated a feeling – I felt joy, wonder, amazement, solitude, grace, and sometimes sadness. Your photographs heightened my awareness.  You made me want to travel.  I wanted to be able to slow down raindrops to see their lens effect.  I realized how much happens on the street that I might just walk past without connecting.  I could stand for hours at night and my eyes still wouldn’t let me see what long exposures capture.  Thank you for expanding my vision.

 

I hope you enjoy the exhibit as much as I did in selecting the images.  Thank you.
