Juror: Amy Arbus 

 Juror's Choice: "The Pathologizers, 2" by Maureen Price

The self-portrait has been a popular form of expression ever since we first saw our own reflection. Like Narcissus, it's often the case that we need not look beyond the tip of our own nose for a muse worth capturing.

Since the fifteenth century and the advent of the mirror artists have modeled for themselves in their own works of art.  Whether it is an in-depth exploration of the artist’s own psyche or simply because as a model, the artist is clearly the cheapest and most available. Whatever the reason, nearly every artist in every medium has attempted this exploration of self.

The Darkroom Gallery Difference

Show us your most creative self-portraits, ones that capture your true essence. Or your multitude of alter egos? In this age of self promotion and moment-by-moment self curation, the "selfie" is becoming a honed craft. We are interested in how this trend interacts with contemporary photography. Does your work shun or embrace such popular demand? Or is it inspired by the greats? Frida Kahlo, Jan van Eyck, Cindy Sherman, Van Gogh, Chuck Close and Vivian Maier are only a few of the artists that have made and left their mark though creative self-portraiture. How will you leave yours?

Juror's Statement:

Self portraits can be fraught. They can expose something other than what the artist intended. The most successful portraits submitted to Mirror, Mirror I suspect, did just that. They dealt with pregnancy, death, rebirth, violence, fear, heartbreak, loneliness, the supernatural, sexual identity, falling in and out of love, loss of virginity, and ironically, the loss of self. The camera allows a kind of scrutiny that can show one how they feel, whether it be conscious or not

The less effective pictures submitted, tackled some fascinating ideas like wrestling with ones self, being ones own grandfather, and hiding from ones self, but the ideas were stronger than the images.

The weakest pictures were over-produced, over-photo shopped, mixed media, shadows and reflections, snapshots, and jokes that weren’t funny.

In almost all cases I found that the titles of the photographs were too literal. They tried to explain what the artist was suffering which had the deleterious effect of making me, the viewer, feel that the mystery was gone. Good titles are always challenging to find, but without them we aren’t free to have our own interpretations which can be myriad.

Juror:Amy Arbus
©Amy ArbusAmerican contemporary photographer and daughter of Diane Arbus whose career combines commercial work, teaching at ICP and personal projects. She has published five books. Her first book, No Place Like Home (Doubleday & Co, 1986), examined unconventional houses and her second, The Inconvenience of Being Born (Fotofolio, 1999), the emotional reactions of babies. The New Yorker called The Fourth Wall her masterpiece. Her most recent, After Images, is an homage to modernism's most iconic avant-garde paintings.

In the 1980s Arbus took a series of photographs picturing New York street fashion. More than five hundred of the images were published in Village Voice at the time and seventy were later collected in her book On the Street (Welcome, 2006).

Amy Arbus has been photographing professionally for twenty-nine years. Her photographs have appeared in over one hundred periodicals around the world, including The New Yorker, Aperture, ESPN Magazine, and The New York Times Magazine. Her advertising clients include American Express, Nickelodeon, Saatchi & Saatchi, New Line Cinema, Christiano Fissore, and The California Children and Families Commission.


She teaches portraiture at the International Center of Photography, NORDphotography, Anderson Ranch and The Fine Arts Work Center. Amy Arbus is represented by The Schoolhouse Gallery in Massachusetts. She has had twenty-five solo exhibitions worldwide, and her photographs are a part of the collection of The National Theater in Norway, The New York Public Library and The Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Juror's Choice: "Derby Eyes" by Christine Pearl Washington, DC USA

Next to the discovery of fire, the invention of the wheel has been the most significant achievement in the development of human culture and civilization.

The  horse drawn chariot revolutionized warfare, while the stone wheel of  the gristmill made it possible to process enough grain to feed  increasing numbers of city dwellers, and the oxcart provided  transportation for people and produce.  In the modern era, life would be  unimaginable without wheels.  America is truly a "car culture", and the  rest of the world is not far behind.

How  do you envision wheels in your own life? Maybe you're a car nut, a  lover of anything that looks sleek and goes fast, from a Grand Prix car  to a NASCAR racer, to a land speed record vehicle.  Or perhaps you're  more aware of other types of wheels, such as those on bicycles, baby  carriages, or trains.  And then there are Ferris wheels and pinwheels, skateboards and rollerblades, conveyor belts and steamboats. The  possibilities are nearly limitless.

The Darkroom Gallery Difference

Wheels is  Darkroom Gallery's invitation to you depict your photographic discovery  of the wheel.  We're looking for photos that feature cars in any and  all forms, of course, from the classic car to the newest zero-emission  vehicles, but Wheels is not limited to cars; anything that  moves or operates on wheels is fair game.  This is your opportunity to  show us what makes your world go 'round!

Juror's Statement:

The standard of entries I thought generally high and those that I’ve selected for the final group particularly good examples of contemporary photography. Encapsulating so many aspects of the art the entries showed the high standards that are being achieved by long time photographic enthusiasts and those that – due to the democratisation of photography in this digital age – have only recently started shooting with a considered attitude.

As a photographer known for his work in the highly charged world of Formula One one may imagine that I’d like pictures with similar chaotic feel but, away from the race tracks of the world, I like to shoot and enjoy viewing a certain style of photography that is far simpler in it’s execution and mien. It can be viewed here: http://www.darrenheath.com/off-track. The pictures that I’ve chosen for my final group, two runners-up and my juror’s choice, are perfect examples of this type of work.

My winning picture, entitled 'Derby Eyes’, is a wonderful study of a seemingly innocent night’s racing at the local dirt track oval. With a haunting and completely mesmerising look on her face the girlfriend of – I assume – one of the race car drivers seems lost in a world of her own. Behind her a row of beaten-up cars and a perfectly positioned trio of guys, fussing over one of the cars, acts as a perfect background isolating and adding intensity to her stare ever more. The picture’s composition, lack of colour, mood and ambience results in me continually coming back to view the picture over and over.

My two runners-up: Sleeping at the museum and No overnight parking.

Both these superb images I’d be over the moon to have shot. Looking for all the world like pictures shot by Magnum’s Alec Soth or legendary photographer and inspiration to so many William Egglestone, I think both are brilliant. No overnight parking is very reminiscent of the work I so enjoy shooting.

Juror's Choice:"job" by lauren mazzotta Manchester Center, VT

There are principles of good design that when used properly, will make a good image much better, and a great image dynamite.  With an understanding of how to apply these principles in making your images, you’ve got a excellent chance at elevating even dull subject matter to visually enticing, and in some instances, simply persuasive.

The Darkroom Gallery Difference

Does your image use point, line, color, form or shape, space, texture, and/or pattern to effectively communicate your intent?  Does the image portray a sense of unity, balance, proportion, rhythm/repetition/similarity, hierarchy/dominance/emphasis/figure to ground.  Let’s also add a few of the gestalt principles into the mix:  Closure (our tendency to see and assume something which is not technically there/to fill in the missing pieces), Continuance (our tendency to follow a visual or suggested path), and Proximity (the two-dimensional relationship of objects to each other within the frame).  For more on these Gestalt principles and others, visit our Juror’s article mentioned below.

If you have images that clearly illustrate one or several of the above mentioned elements and/or principles of design, we would love to see them.  Our Juror Joe Baraban is prepared to apply his expertise to choose work that is both alluring and exemplar of the design standards we expect in graphically successful imagery.  You don’t need to be able to label your work with the appropriate element/principles - if you’ve got one or more images that pops with visual success, submit them – they may the mark of great design that we’re looking for.

Juror's Statement:

I based my decisions on how much was created in the camera, and how much was created in front of a computer. If this was a competition and the criterion was how well someone knew how to manipulate his or her original photograph, this would be an entirely different show. I didn’t want to mix the two genres. Well composed and designed photographs stand on their own with little or no help.

There were several entries that I liked and would have fit in this classification if left alone, but were immediately disqualified when I felt too much post processing was applied and no longer looked like photographs. The same goes for incorrect exposures of an otherwise well thought out picture.

There are photographers, then there are computer artists and for me, I’d rather see good pictures that were created at the moment when the shutter release was depressed. Then, I have no problem with some enhancement using Photoshop.

I considered my “juror’s pick” based on what I considered best fit in my thought process when I first started viewing all the images. I was very impressed with the level of expertise in the submissions, and there are several in this show that I would put my name on.

Juror: Joe Baraban

Joe Baraban has been photographing since the age of 24, where he took a job as a Medical Photographer at the Methodist Hospital in Houston (there aren’t many of us who can brag about a field entry like that!) He became Freelance soon thereafter, and over the next forty years built a commercial portfolio including work for clients from Coca Cola to Hennessy, Cessna to Boeing, and IBM to Microsoft. His resume also includes most of the Fortune 500 companies. He has photographed the full line automotive brochures for Acura, Saturn, and Range Rover, not to mention campaigns for Jaguar, Ford, Toyota. Although he’s rather famous in the auto industry, you’ll see his work spans portraiture, travel, industrial, and general commercial with a visual voice clearly seated in eye-popping design. Visit his portfolios at www.joebaraban.com.

Mr. Baraban has been subject matter for feature articles in Communication Arts Magazine (including the cover), Photo Design (including the cover), Design, Japan’s Premier magazine (including the cover), and Studio Magazine. Joe’s images are often seen in Communication Arts, Graphis, and The Mead Annual Report Show. You’ll also find Joe imparting invaluable knowledge as guest speaker from East to West Coasts. He offers enlivening seminars at venues such as Photo East (the national convention in New York), Photo West in San Francisco, and Viacom (Canada’s national convention). You’ll also be motivated in workshops Internationally.

"5th Avenue" Juror's Choice by Katharine Ryals Brooklyn, NY USA

Blue is a favorite color of all people, yet it has more complex and contradictory meanings than any other hue.

The Darkroom Gallery Difference

Throughout the ages, as the natural world's color for water and sky, blue lends itself to spiritual and heavenly leanings.  In these modern days, blue is embraced as the color of heaven and authority, denim jeans and corporate logos.  Most blues convey a sense of trust, loyalty, cleanliness, and understanding. On the other hand, blue evolved as symbol of depression in American culture. “Singing the blues” and feeling blue” are good examples of the complexity of color symbolism and how the color has been evolved in different cultures.

 

Juror's Statement:

It was interesting and fun to jury a show with such a specific theme. Still I found that I had to narrow down the criteria I used in selecting images. The color blue had to be in there, and while it didn’t necessarily have to predominate, in most cases it did have to stand out and in some way “make” the image. I eliminated many images that had been heavily and obviously filtered or photoshopped, those where the blue was an obvious gimmick, and those that, even mostly blue, could easily have been mostly red, or yellow or some other color. And of course, the image itself had to be strong, so in some cases I chose images that were not necessarily about the blue, but that were powerful, and in which blue was a component.
