Juror: Russell Joslin

Juror's Choice: "On the Non-Linear Traverse of Time" by Nana Lutea from Vancouver, BC Canada

Photographs that rebel against rational thought, a surreal "superior reality" of the subconscious.

In Europe in the 1920's, the artistic movement called Surrealism focused a revolution against the constraints of the rational mind.  Psychoanalysts of the time used a variety of techniques to bring to the surface the subconscious thoughts of their patients. The Surrealists borrowed many of the same techniques to stimulate their writing and art, with the belief that the creativity that came from deep within a person’s subconscious could be more powerful and authentic than any product of conscious thought. These artists were also intent on interpreting dreams as conduits for unspoken feelings and desires. These works created didn't begin with preconceived notions of a finished product; rather, they were provoked by dreams, or emerged from subconscious associations between images, text, and their meanings.

Juror, Russell Joslin, describes dreams in relation to his work,

The Darkroom Gallery Difference

It is commonly believed that the primary function of dreams is to psychologically balance and compensate for matters left unsettled during our waking hours. In the dream world, the censors of our mind dissipate and the material in our heads becomesfluid and nonlinear—our past memories, fears and desires all surface symbolically, revealing to us a deeper understanding of ourselves. Metaphorically, this is how I have come to understand my photographic work. I see my photographs as visual manifestations of my subconscious mind—images that bypass intellectualization to reveal authentic feeling.

Juror's Statement:

My interest in dreams lies in their ability to expose our innermost psychology, desires, and fears in a primarily symbolic, visual, and emotional manner. Our deepest memories and the matter of our everyday lives can take the same precedence in the mysterious space of a dream. Dreams are universally personal, experienced only by the dreamer, sometimes so vividly that they are confused with the “reality” of our waking lives. Hallucinations are related, an expression of the interior workings of the mind, an altering of perception, or of an external “reality”.

As the title of this exhibition suggests, Dreams and Hallucinations is a conscious attempt by each artist to intersect the sometimes murky life of the mind with the medium of photography. Though the selected photographs are as personal and varied as the individuals who made them, I believe there are universally understood threads that run through them, and, like dreams, are left to be discovered and interpreted by each receptive viewer.

 Juror's Choice: "The Pathologizers, 2" by Maureen Price

The self-portrait has been a popular form of expression ever since we first saw our own reflection. Like Narcissus, it's often the case that we need not look beyond the tip of our own nose for a muse worth capturing.

Since the fifteenth century and the advent of the mirror artists have modeled for themselves in their own works of art.  Whether it is an in-depth exploration of the artist’s own psyche or simply because as a model, the artist is clearly the cheapest and most available. Whatever the reason, nearly every artist in every medium has attempted this exploration of self.

The Darkroom Gallery Difference

Show us your most creative self-portraits, ones that capture your true essence. Or your multitude of alter egos? In this age of self promotion and moment-by-moment self curation, the "selfie" is becoming a honed craft. We are interested in how this trend interacts with contemporary photography. Does your work shun or embrace such popular demand? Or is it inspired by the greats? Frida Kahlo, Jan van Eyck, Cindy Sherman, Van Gogh, Chuck Close and Vivian Maier are only a few of the artists that have made and left their mark though creative self-portraiture. How will you leave yours?

Juror's Statement:

Self portraits can be fraught. They can expose something other than what the artist intended. The most successful portraits submitted to Mirror, Mirror I suspect, did just that. They dealt with pregnancy, death, rebirth, violence, fear, heartbreak, loneliness, the supernatural, sexual identity, falling in and out of love, loss of virginity, and ironically, the loss of self. The camera allows a kind of scrutiny that can show one how they feel, whether it be conscious or not

The less effective pictures submitted, tackled some fascinating ideas like wrestling with ones self, being ones own grandfather, and hiding from ones self, but the ideas were stronger than the images.

The weakest pictures were over-produced, over-photo shopped, mixed media, shadows and reflections, snapshots, and jokes that weren’t funny.

In almost all cases I found that the titles of the photographs were too literal. They tried to explain what the artist was suffering which had the deleterious effect of making me, the viewer, feel that the mystery was gone. Good titles are always challenging to find, but without them we aren’t free to have our own interpretations which can be myriad.

Juror:Amy Arbus
©Amy ArbusAmerican contemporary photographer and daughter of Diane Arbus whose career combines commercial work, teaching at ICP and personal projects. She has published five books. Her first book, No Place Like Home (Doubleday & Co, 1986), examined unconventional houses and her second, The Inconvenience of Being Born (Fotofolio, 1999), the emotional reactions of babies. The New Yorker called The Fourth Wall her masterpiece. Her most recent, After Images, is an homage to modernism's most iconic avant-garde paintings.

In the 1980s Arbus took a series of photographs picturing New York street fashion. More than five hundred of the images were published in Village Voice at the time and seventy were later collected in her book On the Street (Welcome, 2006).

Amy Arbus has been photographing professionally for twenty-nine years. Her photographs have appeared in over one hundred periodicals around the world, including The New Yorker, Aperture, ESPN Magazine, and The New York Times Magazine. Her advertising clients include American Express, Nickelodeon, Saatchi & Saatchi, New Line Cinema, Christiano Fissore, and The California Children and Families Commission.


She teaches portraiture at the International Center of Photography, NORDphotography, Anderson Ranch and The Fine Arts Work Center. Amy Arbus is represented by The Schoolhouse Gallery in Massachusetts. She has had twenty-five solo exhibitions worldwide, and her photographs are a part of the collection of The National Theater in Norway, The New York Public Library and The Museum of Modern Art in New York.

"5th Avenue" Juror's Choice by Katharine Ryals Brooklyn, NY USA

Blue is a favorite color of all people, yet it has more complex and contradictory meanings than any other hue.

The Darkroom Gallery Difference

Throughout the ages, as the natural world's color for water and sky, blue lends itself to spiritual and heavenly leanings.  In these modern days, blue is embraced as the color of heaven and authority, denim jeans and corporate logos.  Most blues convey a sense of trust, loyalty, cleanliness, and understanding. On the other hand, blue evolved as symbol of depression in American culture. “Singing the blues” and feeling blue” are good examples of the complexity of color symbolism and how the color has been evolved in different cultures.

 

Juror's Statement:

It was interesting and fun to jury a show with such a specific theme. Still I found that I had to narrow down the criteria I used in selecting images. The color blue had to be in there, and while it didn’t necessarily have to predominate, in most cases it did have to stand out and in some way “make” the image. I eliminated many images that had been heavily and obviously filtered or photoshopped, those where the blue was an obvious gimmick, and those that, even mostly blue, could easily have been mostly red, or yellow or some other color. And of course, the image itself had to be strong, so in some cases I chose images that were not necessarily about the blue, but that were powerful, and in which blue was a component.

Juror's Choice: "Derby Eyes" by Christine Pearl Washington, DC USA

Next to the discovery of fire, the invention of the wheel has been the most significant achievement in the development of human culture and civilization.

The  horse drawn chariot revolutionized warfare, while the stone wheel of  the gristmill made it possible to process enough grain to feed  increasing numbers of city dwellers, and the oxcart provided  transportation for people and produce.  In the modern era, life would be  unimaginable without wheels.  America is truly a "car culture", and the  rest of the world is not far behind.

How  do you envision wheels in your own life? Maybe you're a car nut, a  lover of anything that looks sleek and goes fast, from a Grand Prix car  to a NASCAR racer, to a land speed record vehicle.  Or perhaps you're  more aware of other types of wheels, such as those on bicycles, baby  carriages, or trains.  And then there are Ferris wheels and pinwheels, skateboards and rollerblades, conveyor belts and steamboats. The  possibilities are nearly limitless.

Wheels is  Darkroom Gallery's invitation to you depict your photographic discovery  of the wheel.  We're looking for photos that feature cars in any and  all forms, of course, from the classic car to the newest zero-emission  vehicles, but Wheels is not limited to cars; anything that  moves or operates on wheels is fair game.  This is your opportunity to  show us what makes your world go 'round!

Juror's Statement:

The standard of entries I thought generally high and those that I’ve selected for the final group particularly good examples of contemporary photography. Encapsulating so many aspects of the art the entries showed the high standards that are being achieved by long time photographic enthusiasts and those that – due to the democratisation of photography in this digital age – have only recently started shooting with a considered attitude.

As a photographer known for his work in the highly charged world of Formula One one may imagine that I’d like pictures with similar chaotic feel but, away from the race tracks of the world, I like to shoot and enjoy viewing a certain style of photography that is far simpler in it’s execution and mien. It can be viewed here: http://www.darrenheath.com/off-track. The pictures that I’ve chosen for my final group, two runners-up and my juror’s choice, are perfect examples of this type of work.

My winning picture, entitled 'Derby Eyes’, is a wonderful study of a seemingly innocent night’s racing at the local dirt track oval. With a haunting and completely mesmerising look on her face the girlfriend of – I assume – one of the race car drivers seems lost in a world of her own. Behind her a row of beaten-up cars and a perfectly positioned trio of guys, fussing over one of the cars, acts as a perfect background isolating and adding intensity to her stare ever more. The picture’s composition, lack of colour, mood and ambience results in me continually coming back to view the picture over and over.

My two runners-up: Sleeping at the museum and No overnight parking.

Both these superb images I’d be over the moon to have shot. Looking for all the world like pictures shot by Magnum’s Alec Soth or legendary photographer and inspiration to so many William Egglestone, I think both are brilliant. No overnight parking is very reminiscent of the work I so enjoy shooting.
