Juror: Matthew Gamber
The inability to distinguish one or more chromatic colors, distinction of space by the edges of darkness and light.
Color plays an important role in how we perceive the world around us. So when you take that information away what do you get in return? Without color, other elements of the photograph take on a more distinct role in telling the story. Notice how lighting, contrast, and composition are much more important in monochromatic images.
Black & white photography is a timeless art; always relevant, always contemporary despite being so historically ancient. Our juror

Whether you are a darkroom purist or a Photoshop crafter, show us your love for hue-less images. We want to see your best black and white or alternative process photographs. Pay tribute to the origins of photography.
The title of this show, Color-blind, is essentially theme encompassing a broad approach to the idea of black-and-white. The term itself, black-and-white, conjures an entire history of photographic picture making, and is often defined by its unique graphic limitations. In taking a broad approach to the idea of Color-blind, I selected images that took a certain element of risk in their visual approach, regardless of technique. As a juror, I identified with work whose subject and method were not immediately recognizable. The variations were many; the final choice was difficult.
