Juror's Choice: Four Giraffes by Bruce Berkow

We’re proud to present Multiples, Darkroom Gallery’s 99th exhibition. In keeping with the repetitiveness of the numeral nine in 99, the theme of repeating subjects seemed like a good way to mark this milestone. As in the above photo by our juror William Albert Allard, the subjects in your photos need not be alike, but they should be all of the same kind or genre, in this case three buildings. Other than that requirement the subjects of your entry can be anything.

The Darkroom Gallery Difference

Think of birds on a wire, triplets, a repetitive pattern in a natural  formation, like mountains, clouds and sand dune crests, a city skyline, patterns in graphic or decorative motifs. Look for the repeating forms in your life and photos!

Juror’s Statement

Overall I was impressed with the submissions. I eliminated some pictures because I thought the processing was perhaps too heavy, too obvious, and became more important than the subject matter. There were some images, many images, if fact, that needed simply clearer vision. I always wonder why people will submit a picture that obviously need better, cleaner framing. It's the old Hemingway thing I teach in workshops: get rid of the extraneous. Cut away, cut away, cut away that which you don't need. However, considering we started with so many images the number that fell short because of visual clutter was not too big.
