Juror's Choice: Hawthorn 1 by James Mignogna Nutley, NJ USA

Macro / Micro: Photographic Extremes
Exhibit Catalog now available at PrestoPhoto

The Darkroom Gallery Difference

Look it up, Macro (from Greek prefix "makros-" meaning "large"). Most sciences or areas of study use this prefix as defined. Macroeconomics, for example: "dealing with the behavior of the whole economy". Microeconomics: "study of the behavior of small economic units, such as that of individual consumers, opposite of macroeconomics". So what happened with Photography? Commonly, photographers call images of things small and extreme closeups, Macro Photography. What then is Microphotography? Interestingly, Nikon uses the term Micro for it's close focusing lenses, but not Canon. So, even the manufacturers don't agree.

Microphotography reveals a world unseen by the naked eye. It often exposes patterns and designs that create sublime abstract images. Macrophotography gathers a view often larger and grander than can be gathered with the human eye. Both introduce distortions either through lens characteristics or stitching construction techniques that are creative tools used to produce these distinctive images. 

Juror's Statement:

I was delighted to see so many genuinely interesting images. I have always thought that seeing the world through a camera (in whatever form that takes) makes us all stop for a moment and take a hard look at what surrounds us. And further, making images up close and personal creates yet another realm. However, creating macro images adds additional challenges (like depth of field) which can get in the way of making a truly wonderfully composed image. Experienced photographers pay attention to those challenges and I am happy to have seen so many fine submissions. Thank you all for your submissions. It was a truly educational and joyful experience to have seen them all. Every single one.

Juror's Choice Untitled1_From the Series "The Window" by Aida Tejada: Pinecrest, FL USA

If your audience is standing indefinitely motionless, entranced by the possibilities in your work and in devising an infinitude of scenarios and alternate endings, then you've made an image that will inspire gallery visitors with the beauty of ambiguity, mystery and perplexity.

Secrets and Mysteries
Exhibit Catalog now available at PrestoPhoto

The Darkroom Gallery Difference

Photographers created images that baffled the viewer as early at the 1860s; Henry Peach Robinson was a pioneer of combination printing, creating the illusory photo montage long before there was Photoshop. We want to see your images that lead the imagination to the edge, encouraging the mind to leap. Multiple exposures, constructions, staged, anything goes, just leave us guessing.

Juror's Statement:

There are many avenues that artists should pursue to get their work in front of museum curators and gallery owners, including pop up and apartment galleries, not-for-profit venues, university group shows and online blogs and magazines. But one of the best venues is the juried show: an anonymous gathering of images chosen solely on the immediate impact of a single frame or set of pictures. I always find the task of selecting work to be a bit unnerving, knowing I am going to disappoint many artists in the attempt to edit to a select few. The breadth of work being produced through the country always surprises me and the work in "Secrets and Mysteries" is no exception. I want to thank Polly Raine and Ken Signorello for inviting me to be the juror and congratulate the many photographers whose works were chosen for "Secrets and Mysteries".

Juror: Catherine Edelman

Opening in Chicago in 1987, the Catherine Edelman Gallery was quick to become one of the Midwest's leading fine art photography galleries.  Director and Owner Catherine Edelman has "a patient eye for artists, tracking their progress [and] representing mature photographers who deliver consistent, quality work, regardless of age or exposure."  Edelman has upheld her original promise to feature prominent Contemporary photographers alongside new and emerging talent, supplying her audience with a refreshing breadth of both subject matter and photographic technique.

CEG debuted with Nan Goldin and the "Ballad of Sexual Dependency" progressing through everything from street photography (Susan Meiselas, Sebastiao Salgado, James Nachtwey) to fashion photography (Annie Leibovitz, Herb Ritts, Matthew Rolston) to traditional landscape images (Michael Kenna, Lynn Geesaman) and also socially-conscious work (Richard Misrach, Jeffrey Wolin, Terry Evans, Allen Ginsberg) and narrative (Joel-Peter Witkin, Elizabeth Ernst, Dan Estabrook).

Working closely with magazine editors and book publishers, the Catherine Edelman Gallery co-published several monographs and collections, including: Written in Memory: Portraits of the Holocaust, photographs by Jeffrey Wolin (Chronicle Books), Pressure, photographs by Joe Ziolkowski (Pohlmann Press), What Were You Thinking (celebrating the 15 year anniversary of the gallery in association with Paper Mirror Press) and Iron Beauties, a monograph on the work of Chicago photographer Michelle Keim, published by Nazraeli Press.

Catherine Edelman is an executive board member of the Association of International Photography Art Dealers and President of the Chicago Art Dealers Association.   In addition to hosting Saturday Morning educational seminars for her community, Edelman recently opened an online gallery of underrepresented local artists, titled "The Chicago Project."

We are so pleased to offer the seasoned curatorial eye of Catherine Edelman for "Secrets and Mysteries."

Juror's Choice: "The Heart and The Heavy" by Heather Evans Smith Winston-Salem, NC USA

The self-portrait: Is it your compulsion? Your obsession? An impulse? Was it out of necessity (the mandatory Photo 101 exercise, a portrait for the office newsletter, or because you needed to self-promote)? Is it the autobiographical record you decided was best told in image?

Exhibit Catalog now available at PrestoPhoto

The Darkroom Gallery Difference

Sometimes we have to step in front of the lens - we can't seem to communicate what we want to others, or maybe we're just the most convenient choice for a model (the least expensive, for sure). Even if we got there by default, there is no one better able to translate our vision to the camera than ourselves. Perhaps you were experimenting with persona or striving for a personal perfection? Were you desperately seeking Self? For thosewilling to dig deep and bare all, the self-portrait is a reward for your bravery - because whether you love it or hide it in the depths of your archives for decades, you've learned from it. Whatever your intention, there is nothing closer to an authentic portrait, than to sit both behind and in front of the lens. And whether for totally narcissistic or completely humble intents - you have to admit, it's you.

The images listed below were selected by the pool of submitters.  Submitters were able to vote for up to five images including one of their own.  Each of these received at least three votes. Our Juror Cig Harvey selected the juror's choice and honorable mentions.


Video tour by Polly Raine and Clement Yonkers including exhibitor interviews

Juror's Statement:

I was charged with the very difficult task of selecting a Juror's Choice Award and Honorable Mentions from the final group of selected images. It was an honor to be asked and I agonized over my decision as the standard was very high.

Ultimately I was drawn to the images that used light, atmosphere and gesture to best articulate the conceptual elements of the photograph. These images continue to linger in my mind.

Juror: You and Cig Harvey

We're trying something new with this exhibition. It's submitter juried (OK, well Cig will choose a Juror's Choice and honorable mentions, but otherwise, it's all YOU!)  Each of you who submits your self-portraits will be able to vote for up to four images (including one of yours if you're that confident!).  No anxiety here...images will be anonymous, labeled with titles and medium only if provided by their authors. You will not know who you are voting for, and your peers will not know who you voted for.  Only those who make a submission will have access to vote.  Though you are not required to vote, by submitting your images, you give the other submitters the right to view (and vote for) your images. The 50 to 60 images that get the most votes will be showcased in our gallery and online.  In case of a tie at our quantity threshold, your Juror will make a final decision.  In addition, that same Juror, Cig Harvey, has the tough but exciting choice of designating her Juror's choice and honorable mentions from your picks only

Cig Harvey exhibits internationally, teaches internationally, and photographs everywhere in between.  She balances her always imperative personal imaging pursuits with a large number of commercial clients.  She is published widely, has won numerous awards, and retains a reputation as an instructor/mentor that leaves waiting lists worldwide.  Visit her work, words, and CV at

"Among Trees" Juror's Choice: "Ballad from a wood4" by Karmen Orlic from Porec, Croatia

We live among trees - depend on them - harvest them - eat from them - worship them - love them. To some people trees are home, to others -- simply a resource. For this exhibit we want to examine the lives of trees and their intersection with our lives.

Trees transcend time as we experience it. 

How many of us as children have planted a tree, watched it grow and then left it behind to a new generation? Trees stand as witnesses to generations past, present and future. Trees are part of the ecological web of life on earth and whether we know it or not we all depend on them.

Exhibit Catalog now available at PrestoPhoto

The Darkroom Gallery Difference

Show us what trees mean to you. Objects of beauty, reverence, necessity? Symbols of strength and stoicism?  Monuments to the past?  Victims of man's consumption?  We want to see how you envision life among trees.

Juror's Statement:

Trees have always fascinated me. I have many fond memories of trees as far back as I can remember. I have climbed many, fallen out of a couple, and always chose them as the first place to hide when playing hide and seek. Who hasn't been susceptible to the charms of a handsome tree?

With a wildly diverse group and record breaking amount of entries I was given the daunting task of selecting a cohesive collection. This was especially difficult because the quality of the work was amazingly high and I am very sorry to disappoint the artists whose work was not chosen. Many of the images not chosen were simply a result of having a limited number of final choices, or in some cases similar themes.

Since trees have such a universal application as symbolic reference point, and strong position as cultural, philosophical and religious landmark I wanted to be able to represent as many examples as possible. I learned so much through this process, felt grateful to be a part of it and thank everyone for sharing their view of trees with me.

Juror: Beth Moon

Time, memory and nature are the central motifs that underlie the photographic imagery of American photographer Beth Moon. Whether she is recording the majestic, sentinel-like Baobab trees for the Portraits of Time series; capturing the strange balance between childhood innocence and the darker wisdom of nature in the project, Thy Kingdom Come;  rendering menacing carnivorous plants in the Savage Garden portfolio, or constructing fanciful, dreamscapes in the Seen But Not Heard portfolio;  Moon reveals a magical and intuitive appreciation for the ways in which time, memory and nature define our understanding of man's place in the universe.

Moon studied fine art at the University of Wisconsin. Moving to England and inspired by the many ancient trees there, she decided to make a series of their portraits. She mastered platinum/palladium printing, an ideal process for her vision. Her work has been the object of numerous solo and group exhibitions in museums and galleries worldwide, receiving critical acclaim. 

Beth now resides in Marin County, California. We are excited to have a juror who's work's longevity seems only too appropriate for a subject mater as permanent as trees.

Earth Meets SpiritJuror's Choice receives a 30x48" vinyl exhibit banner featuring their image and a signed copy of Douglas Beasley's Earth Meets Spirit: A Journey Through the Sacred Landscape.

Honorable Mentions and Juror's Choice receive free exhibit catalogs. People's Choice gains free entry into a future exhibit.
