"Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises."  - Pedro Calderon de la Barca

Green is everywhere. It’s the most common color in the natural world.   It’s the color we associate with money, the environment, and aliens, and it’s the color of revitalization and rebirth. It also carries negative connotations, as with envy, greed, nausea, and poison.  The green we see in nature is the color of of chlorophyll, the "magic" substance that converts sunlight to energy, and thus sustains almost all life on earth.

The Darkroom Gallery Difference

Kermit the Frog famously declared that "It isn't easy being green", but we think it shouldn't be too hard to find a way to make green the primary compositional element in your photos. Green landscapes are almost too easy - unless you can find a new point of view. Trees, plants of all kinds, insects, too. The human environment is rife with green, from lights to painted signs to vehicles; the literal possibilities are nearly endless.  The figurative possibilities are nearly endless as well, so  see if you can use green to evoke an emotion, a feeling, a sensation.

For this exhibition we're looking for images that  creatively explore greenness, green in all its many guises.  We're inviting you to color outside the lines… as long as you're coloring in green. 

Juror's Statement:

There were a lot of really solid works to choose from which made my job hard, but obviously there were several that really touched me and captured the word, “green” in a less conventional and expected manner. These were the images I was hunting for and what I ended up being most drawn to.  In a contest like this you want to make sure your submission(s) stand out from the pack.  There was a superabundance of leaves, tress, landscape shots with no other intriguing elements happening within the frame, and over photoshopped (meaning the saturation and/or sharpening was much too prevalent) images of chipped green paint on walls and the like. And, while some of these were well composed or had elements I liked about them, there were just too many of these same images. 

A cool tip that I learned long ago and follow to this day goes like this: if you're out shooting and you see something you want to capture, stop and ask yourself, “have I seen a photo like this before?” If so, don’t shoot it and if you must, shoot it from a completely particular and individualistic perspective. Make it your own! This is the only way you will learn how to grow and evolve with your work and start producing photographs that are distinct to you and your vision as an artist. Furthermore- this is how you will eventually be able to submit to these kinds of contests and ensure that your photos stand out from the rest. 

In the end, my final selections came easily. I picked the strongest image for 1st place but the honorable mentions were all a very close second. These images were all incredibly powerful and aberrant. Great submissions overall. It was pleasure getting the opportunity to view so much good work from so many different photographers.

Juror: Sarah Elise Abramson

Young and passionately productive, Sarah Elise Abramson writes a monthly column for American Art Collector magazine as well as for Culture magazine. She has curated numerous exhibitions in the Los Angles area while studying her craft as a photographer under Susan Worsham, Taso Papadakis, David LaChapelle, and others. After a three year residency at Angel Gates Cultural Center, her accomplishments have been featured in multiple publications including the Huffington Post, Monster Children, Beautiful Bizarre magazine, Coachella Magazine, and The Photographic Journal. She has exhibited at The Louvre, SOMarts, The Vex, The Egan Gallery, Gregorio Escalante Gallery, BG Gallery, The Arsenal of Venice in Italy, Jamie Brooks Gallery, The Eventi Hotel Big Screen Plaza in New York, to name a few. Abramson is additionally the curator and editor-in-chief of Slow Toast, an annual independent art publication.

In her own work, Abramson resides at the intersection of poetic and unsettling, creepy and beautiful, subversive and classically romantic. Her work is ethereal, demonstrating an inquisitive and appreciative love for nature, eccentric characters, and discarded objects that serve as windows into dreamlike visions of other people's lives. Abramson often assigns meaning to the mysterious productions of the human psyche through the mode of photography, offering us a view into a normally invisible and n=magical realm that gets lost in our mundane affairs.

Juror's Choice: Through Goldilocks' Eyes
by Louise Parms

In the still life, the extraordinary is found in the ordinary.  -  Jonathon Jones

The still life has a been a main staple of art and art education since not long after our distant ancestors started to draw on rocks and cave walls. It was inevitable then, that still life photography appeared almost synchronously with the invention of photography.  Nineteenth century still life photography, like other art photography of that era, largely imitated classic still life painting; think of bowls of fruit, flower arrangements, and the occasional odd items thrown in, like books, utensils, pens and paper, and even dead birds.

The Darkroom Gallery Difference

As Jonathon Jones writes in an article titled "Still Life Photography" in The Guardian, the still life was regarded as a humble form by the fine art community, and it was only after 20th century fine art photographers seriously took up the still life that it  gained a more exalted status.  Edward Weston's sublime black and white rendering of a nautilus shell is an perfect example of what can be done with photography and a simple object; Robert Mapplethorpe's lilies are in the same category.  More recently still life photography has embraced a more complex and varied selection of subjects.  The photos of contemporary photographer Wolfgang Tillmans are an example of the inclusion of an eclectic array of objects in a still life image.

For this exhibition, Darkroom Gallery is challenging you to come up with your own creative concept of the still life.  The only rule is that your photos should include inanimate objects arranged in an aesthetically pleasing manner, whether by design or by chance.  Lighting, background, and composition can all be manipulated to achieve an image that "speaks" to the viewer. 

Juror's Statement:

“In Stillness” can be interpreted many ways. I approached the submissions viscerally, initially choosing those which gave me a feeling of calm, balance and timelessness in their visual presentation. However, I was also, and always, looking at the formal aspects of photography: composition and especially quality of light - what I call a,”well seen” image. While there were many arresting photographs in this large group, those I chose most closely met my criteria.

Landscape photography is the supreme test of the photographer. - Ansel Adams

Who better than Ansel Adams to introduce a call for submissions for a landscape exhibition? Admittedly calling on Adams is setting the bar quite high, but almost all photographers make land-scape photos and all can make a good landscape image with enough practice. The landscape is all around us, so there’s no shortage of subject matter.

The Darkroom Gallery Difference

With the changes we’re seeing in the natural environment, documenting our surroundings is more important than ever. Wherever you live or wherever you go the “lay of the land” is there. You don’t need to travel, to find a landscape worthy of a photo. There are microlandscapes to be found in vacant lots and city parks, and in some places, right outside your windows.

In Le Paysage we’re looking for your unique and creative vision of the world. You don’t have to produce photos worthy of Ansel Adams; in fact, the key to the creative photography we seek is depicting the world with your own personal vision, not copying a master’s take on it. Let’s see what your vision produces.

Juror's Statement:

Thank you all for allowing me the privilege to judge your magnificent works. It has been an amazing adventure but also a difficult process with 857 images from 133 photographers to choose from! Thanks to you, I was transported all over the world and discovered once again how beautiful and awe inspiring the Earth can be. I am confident that the upcoming exhibition at the Darkroom Gallery will be a huge success and hopeful that these glorious images of our planet will influence each and everyone of us to protect it and to not take it for granted.

Juror: Sandrine Hermand-Grisel

Born and raised in Paris France, Sandrine Hermand-Grisel fell in love with photography at an early age but it was only after obtaining a degree in International Law that she decided to dedicate her life to her real passion. Influenced by her late mother's sculptures and her husbands paintings and films, she worked on several personal projects before her series Nocturnes was recognized in 2005 by Harry Gruyaert, Bertrand Despres and John Batho for the Prix Kodak de la Critique Photographique. In the footsteps of her grand father who was a filmmaker in the US Army during WWII, she moved with her family to the United States in 2006 and began experimenting landscape photography with her series Somewhere and On the road. At present, she’s working on a new series of landscapes called "Sea Sketches". Some of her earlier work can be seen at her website, www.hermandgrisel.com.

Sandrine Hernand-Grisel is also the founder and editor of All About Photo (www.all-about-photo.com), an encyclopedic website devoted to promoting photographic resources such as galleries, exhibitions, museums, schools and institutes, and many other contacts useful to photographers. All About Photo also, and perhaps most importantly, seeks out and promotes promising photographic talent.

A dream is but a shadow -Hamlet

In the early days of photography, the 1830's, photos were called by some "waking dreams". There seemed to be magic involved - some believed the camera to be capable of capturing the soul of the subject.

Dreams
Exhibit Catalog now available at PrestoPhoto

The Darkroom Gallery Difference

When photography became more commonplace later in the century people came to regard photography as an accurate depiction of reality: "A photograph never lies." At the same time, fine art photographers were experimenting with the use of the camera to create images that clearly did not reflect "objective reality". Since then, depicting dream states whether by intent or by serendipitous accident in photographs has become something of a subgenre. And yet nearly all of us have made photos that have a mysterious dream-like quality.

In this exhibition, we're looking for photos that illustrate a waking connection to the world of dreams. Whether by literal representation or by abstract interpretation, we'd like to see how you choose to picture dream states, either sweet dreams or nightmares- or something that's both or neither.

Juror's Statement:

Perhaps the most elusive state of consciousness resides in the world of dreams. What we remember or interpret from this mysterious place within our minds is fascinatingly personal to
every individual. So to select only 51 images from the 694 images submitted proved to be quite a challenge. 

It was my great honor and pleasure to act as juror for a theme so close to my heart. I applaud every photographer that submitted work and congratulate the selected exhibitors.

Juror: Susan Burnstine

Susan Burnstine is an award winning fine art photographer originally from Chicago now based in Los Angeles. Susan is represented in galleries across the world, widely published throughout the globe, conducts workshops internationally and has also written for several photography magazines, including a monthly column for Black and White Photography Magazine (UK).

Burnstine is one of the few photographers today avidly pursuing alternative processes to create an idiosyncratic and deeply personal visual landscape. Initially, Burnstine sought to find a way to portray her dream-like visions entirely in-camera, rather than with post-processing digital manipulations. To achieve this, she has created twenty-one, handmade film cameras and lenses that are frequently unpredictable and technically challenging. The cameras are primarily made out of plastic, vintage camera parts, and random household objects, with single-element lenses molded from plastic and rubber. Learning to overcome their extensive optical limitations required Burnstine to rely on instinct and intuition—the same tools that are key when attempting to interpret dreams.
