The Darkroom Gallery Difference

To happen upon something forgotten, forsaken, hidden. To weave it a visual tale within a single frame. Finding what was once lost.

Just as Vivian Maier’s story, the secretive nanny-photographer who becomes a photography world sensation shortly after her death, spurs levels of excitement found in the rolls of undeveloped film and unacclaimed genius, a dropped scarf on the city street can alter the scene in many ways. It can become the scene.

Juror Davy Rothbart's musings on this theme, "discarded items found in the weeds; abandoned buildings; broken-down trucks in a field; scraps of metal left to rust and decay. I'm reminded of a koan that my mom, a Buddhist teacher, often shares. She'll hand someone a fresh scrap of paper, ask them to crumple it into a tight ball, and then uncrumple it. "Do you see," she'll ask, "within the crumpled paper, its original perfection?" All of the decayed, lost, abandoned places and things in these photographs possess their original glory and perfection and their wizened present hints at a rich, textured journey which is up to us to imagine."

Darkroom Gallery is calling for photographs that redefine found objects or subjects of the past. Whether you are foraging in a far away land or in your own backyard we are looking for images that embody this murky realm of faded glory; haunting happenstance, and beauty found in the lost details of the human condition.  

Juror's Statement:

For 15 years, I've been collecting notes, letters, and photos plucked up off the ground or found on the street, and publishing them in an annual print zine called FOUND and on our daily FOUND Magazine website. Each scrap of paper offers a raw, revealing, and riveting peek into someone else's life.

The same instinct that compels me to treasure lost love notes, To Do lists, and journals, and marvel at the stories within also beckons me into abandoned spaces to examine the traces of lives that passed through these spaces years, decades, even centuries before. I don't believe in ghosts, exactly, but inside each sagging barn I've explored, each abandoned pickup truck lost in the woods, each eerie ghost town saloon, the presence of those who once called these places home is always close at hand. I feel powerfully drawn to these places, like a crow to the graveyard, and am frequently rewarded by a jolt of self-recognition and a tingle of discovery.

What struck me, as I pored over hundreds of beautiful, striking, poetic images submitted by a global array of deeply talented artists, was the thrilling fact that so many other people share my fascination with abandoned places and things. It brought me great joy to imagine each photographer on their own journey of discovery, jolted and tingled themselves, as they explored a shambling house at the edge of town, a rotting cabin in the desert, a junkyard heaped with ancient vehicles. These pictures gave me a chance to explore a range of haunted and exquisite spaces I might never have reached on my own, but more than that, they gave me a sense for just how many kindred spirits we have out there, a vast community of folks who share a particular curiosity and sense of wonder. Thank you for exploring; thank you for your unique vision; thank you for documenting what you've found.

—Davy Rothbart, creator and editor of FOUND Magazine & host of the FOUND Podcast (launching July 13th)

The Darkroom Gallery Difference

Photography utilizing optical illusion is something that will always leave a viewer perplexed: questioning ones eyes. We all know the classic young girl turning into an old lady portrait, or sets of geometric figures that turn out to be of a different size than it appeared. Optical illusions are images that differ from the objective reality. Darkroom gallery is calling for images that are perplexing, that deal with foreshortening, vanishing points, sandwiching negatives or the unique mash up of subjects. These can be attained by a variance of processes; from physically meticulous studio setups, to spontaneously captured works of luck, and ones hugely composed in post.

This exhibit also calls out to the masters of "Light Photography Movement". For those of you who are unfamiliar with the process Light Painting Photography can be broken down into 3 general categories. The first is Light Drawing this is where the light source can be seen by the camera, during a long exposure the artist uses this light source to draw or create a design within the frame. The second category is Kinetic Light Painting, for this light painting technique the lights in the scene generally remain stationary while the camera itself is moved about during a long exposure to create color and design within the frame. The third category is Light Painting, this is where the artist uses handheld light sources to selectively illuminate parts of a scene during a long exposure photograph. Juror Lance Keimig reminds us, "The word photography translates literally from the Greek as light writing."
 
We are looking for works that defy our sense of vision and test our reigns of reality whether that be a post composite work, a physical manipulation or something in between. Keep the viewer wondering: however did they do that?
 

Juror's Statement:

There was a wide breadth of entries, as might be expected from the enigmatic theme. The entires varied widely in quality, subject, and technique, and also in interpretation of the concept. There were a number of outstanding images that didn’t really match the theme, and unfortunately had to be left out of the exhibit. There were multiple exposures and composites, and images that worked on a conceptual and/or a visual level. There were many night images and a number of light painting images as well. The images that I responded to the most not only fit the theme of the show, but also made a strong visual impact and had me wondering how they were made. I was glad to see a number of people working in series, or what seemed to be ongoing projects because this demonstrated the people were exploring the concepts and ideas of the theme. One thing that stood out was that there were very few “straight” images, or ones that were created entirely in camera. Jurgen Lobert’s “Warping Reflections”, and Ginny Newton’s “Skatepark” were great examples of confounding imagery created entirely in camera. Congratulations to all who entered and to those in the exhibit. Please remember that the exhibit is based on the subjective interpretation of one individual- it does not mean that your work wasn’t excellent.

Juror: Rebecca Senf

Juror's Choice: "Wire Sketches 16" by Elizabeth Ellenwood from Jamaica Plain, MA USA

Lines are powerful compositional elements that control the way eyes move through a photograph.

Lines add impact to an image, place emphasis to a particular area of the composition, or tell a story or to draw a connection between different elements in a photograph.  Lines can be straight, curved, broken or jagged. They can bisect one another, cross or overlap and be the driving force behind interpreting perspective.

In the Renaissance, painters needed to be able to translate the three-dimensional world around them onto the two-dimensional surface of a painting, called the "picture plane." The solution was "linear perspective"; the idea that converging lines meet at a single vanishing point and all shapes get smaller in all directions with increasing distance from the eye. Photographers can take this artistic function for granted, or they can harness perspective in unique and creative ways to focus or push the eye around the image.

Lines
Exhibit Catalog now available at PrestoPhoto

The Darkroom Gallery Difference

Lines of some sort can be found in all photographs, formed by natural or artificial elements.  Naturally occurring lines can be rivers, shorelines, waves, sand dunes, and rows of trees while roads, fences, bridges, street lights and skyscrapers are examples of architectural or linear constuctions.  The effect that lines have on an image varies depending upon the orientation and direction.  Horizontal lines convey a sense of width, stability, calm, lazy, security, relaxation, constancy and timelessness.  Whereas vertical lines convey a sense of strength, height, integrity, solidity, dominance, power, peace and tranquility, substance or permanence.  Darkroom Gallery is calling for images that utilize lines in innovative and dynamic ways, how are your photographs enhanced or translated by line?

Juror's Statement:

A juror’s job is always a struggle.  To review a group of images, united by a theme, and select a small group for exhibition is a challenge.  Unavoidably, many good pictures – well seen and provocative – are left out.  It was interesting to see how photographers responded to the call for pictures about lines.  Images of both manmade and natural lines appeared.  Buildings, horizon lines, contrails, trees, railroad tracks, beams of light.  I found myself drawn to photographs that were intriguing – in which the arrangement of space was obfuscated and unclear.  Those visual puzzles attracted me.  On the other hand, some of the most minimal and straightforward pictures, of power lines or jellyfish tentacles, struck me as wonderfully beautiful.  Although I look for innovation and new approaches, I am also engaged by a straight photograph that is well made.  We don’t see it often in photography, but I always appreciate photographers who incorporate humor or playfulness in their work.  In creating this selection I strove to bring together a diverse approach to the concept of lines, pictures that surprise and delight and are just great images, and I hope you enjoy Lines as much as I have.

Juror's Choice: "Delicate and Unique" by Greg Bennett from Hampden, ME USA

Wild, wild wilderness, its grandeur and grace epically and intimately explored through photography.

Humans have always looked upon the beauty, majesty, and ingenuity of the world around them with reverent wonder. The regular rhythms of the sun and moon, the myriads of living creatures in all their splendid diversity, the magnificence of a flower, a butterfly’s wings or a snow crystal –  The ancient Greeks aptly called the universe kosmos, a word denoting order and harmony.

The Darkroom Gallery Difference

This underlying order is reflected in many intriguing patterns in nature.

Many of nature’s patterns are related to the golden section and the Fibonacci numbers. For instance, the golden spiral is a logarithmic or equiangular spiral – a type of spiral found in unicellular foraminifera, sunflowers, seashells, animal horns and tusks, beaks and claws, whirlpools, hurricanes, and spiral galaxies. 

Darkroom Gallery is calling for photography that investigates this intrinsic magic in the natural world. From macro shots to large scale landscapes show us your examples of this otherworldly complexity within our natural realm.

Juror's Choice & Honorable Mention winners received free custom prints for the exhibit that are ecologically sound, sustainable and recyclable created by EcoVisualLab!



Juror's Statement:

If you truly love Photography, you love the way constant change has increasingly become one of the heartbeats of our medium. And as photography morphs in so many new directions so does our concept of what’s “natural.”

What doesn’t change is that a good photograph will still give you pause to consider the subject, the treatment and, most importantly, the photo’s ability to hold your eye, perhaps leaving you with more questions than answers. You might say the best photos are unexpected.

The final images in this exhibition weren’t always the most technically perfect, the most color faithful, or even of the most tried and true compositions. But they are the ones that will stick with you long after your iPad’s gone dark.

Juror: Dan Burkholder 

 

Dan Burkholder was one of the first photographic artists to embrace digital technology in the early 1990’s. True to his love of the traditional photograph, Dan uses digital technology to build images that still look and feel like realphotographs, not like something from a graphic designer’s portfolio. Melding his unique vision with mastery of both the wet and digital darkrooms, his platinum prints are now included in many museum and private collections.
Originating the digital-negative process in 1992, Burkholder has helped open doors for all black and white photographers interested in moving into the new electronic technologies. His award-winning book, Making Digital Negatives for Contact Printing, is regarded as the most authoritative work in the field.
Dan has taught classes and workshops at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, the lnternational Center of Photography in New York, the University of Texas at San Antonio, the Museum of Photographic Arts in San Diego and others. Active with the Texas Photographic Society for many years, he is currently serving on the Advisory Board for this organization.
Dan Burkholder was born in Hagerstown, Maryland, an agri-industrial community in the Appalachian Mountains. He attended Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania and Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California, where he received his BA and Masters Degrees in Photography.
