Juror: Johan Hallberg-Campbell

Juror's Choice:"Funeral of Father" by Adrienne Norman from Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Time-oriented photography; vintage, futuristic or rhythmic imagery. 

Photography is a medium renowned for freezing time. However, there are many facets and dichotomies this theme of chronology can visually explore.
We live in time - it holds us and molds us - but I never felt I understood it very well. And I'm not referring to theories about how it bends and doubles back, or may exist elsewhere in parallel versions. No, I mean ordinary, everyday time, which clocks and watches assure us passes regularly: tick-tock, click-clock. Is there anything more plausible than a second hand? And yet it takes only the smallest pleasure or pain to teach us time's malleability. Some emotions speed it up, others slow it down; occasionally, it seems to go missing - until the eventual point when it really does go missing, never to return.
Julian Barnes, The Sense of an Ending

The Darkroom Gallery Difference

Clocks, watches, pendulums and metronomes tick the seconds away.  At a most elemental level, the moon, sun, stars and shadows tell us time as the tides and waves of the oceans create a rhythm we exist within.  A river can cut away a rock face in time as waves can clear a beach.  People become worn, gnarled and aged over time as the rings of a tree count the decades. Retro furniture, fashion or surrounding atmospheres can automatically date a place. Darkroom Gallery is calling for explorative visual depictions of time.  Pasts and futures can often collide...and what of time travelers and quantum physics?  Lastly, photographs can be truly devoid of time, they can have a sort of classic "timelessness". 

Juror's Statement:

Once I began looking, the literal description of time became almost arbitrary, a consideration, but not the reason for choice. How do you record time in a photograph? Essentially, as soon as you click the shutter you are recording a moment, a moment created conceptually or literally, a moment made by you, a moment of time. Each photograph was something special, the artist’s attempt to connect with the viewer, their version of time and what that meant. I liked that thought.

I looked for images that had connection, that felt honest, made me pause and made me think. The stranger the picture the more I was drawn in. I felt I could make my own story.
