Juror: Matthew Gamber

"Loneliness" Juror's Choice by Naoto Takahashi San Diego, CA USA

The inability to distinguish one or more chromatic colors, distinction of space by the edges of darkness and light.

Color plays an important role in how we perceive the world around us. So when you take that information away what do you get in return? Without color, other elements of the photograph take on a more distinct role in telling the story. Notice how lighting, contrast, and composition are much more important in monochromatic images.

Black & white photography is a timeless art; always relevant, always contemporary despite being so historically ancient.  Our juror

The Darkroom Gallery Difference

Matthew Gamber states, “There is something about how when you photograph something in black and white, it gets locked in that timeframe where it just becomes obsolete as an everyday seeing experience.”

Whether you are a darkroom purist or a Photoshop crafter, show us your love for hue-less images. We want to see your best black and white or alternative process photographs. Pay tribute to the origins of photography.

 

Juror's Statement:

The title of this show, Color-blind, is essentially theme encompassing a broad approach to the idea of black-and-white. The term itself, black-and-white, conjures an entire history of photographic picture making, and is often defined by its unique graphic limitations. In taking a broad approach to the idea of Color-blind, I selected images that took a certain element of risk in their visual approach, regardless of technique. As a juror, I identified with work whose subject and method were not immediately recognizable. The variations were many; the final choice was difficult.

Juror: Saul Robbins

"4 Risja, a story by Lilith" Juror's Choice by Henriette van Gasteren from Reuver, Netherlands

The state of things as they actually exist. Photography that brings the authenticity of life into focus.

Images that document real life. That capture the truth, from the smallest of details to the largest historic events. Our cameras, unbiased and wit-less, tell it all. But the real the art lies behind the technique of framing, strategy of lighting and the choice moment one's finger commands the shutter to open and shut.

The Darkroom Gallery Difference

Photography can elicit change, spark revolutions and tell the stories of those without voices. Societal anthropology studied frame by frame, highlighting the ups and downs, ins and outs of the human condition.

These days we get inundated with "Reality" TV shows which cannot be anything farther than their titled fare. This is our answer to those fake programs: an anti-scripted exhibit. Show us the vulnerable subtleties of real life, the moments we must record, to dissect and ruminate upon lest we forget this world we dwell within.

Real life, show us what you have captured.     

Juror's Statement:

Jurying this exhibition has allowed me the pleasure to consider the many interests this theme can address, and to be stimulated by the depth and breadth that photographers choose to investigate and express about themselves and the world in which we live. My own sensitivity has been expanded from this experience, and I hope that viewers will join me in appreciating the myriad possibilities that Real Life has to offer when seen through others' eyes.

Juror: Saul Robbins

Saul Robbins is interested in the ways people interact within their surroundings, and the psychological dynamics of intimacy. His photographs are motivated by observations of human behavior and personal experience, especially those related to loss and the desire for unification. He is best known for the series Initial Intake, which examines the empty chairs of Manhattan-based psychotherapy professionals from their clients’ perspective, referencing viewers perceptions, associations, and responses to this very private environment and the work that takes place there. In 2012, Robbins created How Can I Help? – An Artful Dialogue, in which he invited passersby to speak with himself or other artists about anything they wish for free and in complete confidence, in a pop-up office / exhibition environment in Midtown Manhattan.

Exhibitions include The Bolinas Museum, Blue Sky Gallery, Deutsche Haus at NYU, chashama (Windows Installation), Griffin Museum, MASQUELIBROS Artist Book Fair, Massachusetts General Hospital, MICA, Museum of Fine Arts – Houston, New Orleans Photo Alliance, Ost Gallery, Moscow, Portland Art Museum, The Educational Alliance, Philoctetes Center, Skirball Center, Mark Woolley Gallery, White Gallery (PSU), and others. His photographs have been published in Aufbau, Berlin Tagesspiegel, CPW Quarterly, D - La Repubblica, More, The New York Times, Real Simple, TAM, and Wired, among others.

Grants and awards include The Covenant Foundation Ignition Grant, Sony World Photography Awards (Finalist), AJPA Rockower, Gunk Foundation, and New York Foundation for the Arts. Curatorial projects include Projecting Freedom: Cinematic Interpretations of the Haggadah (2010), Regarding Intimacy (2007), and No Live Girls, Peep Show 28 (2002). Robbins was awarded a NICA Stipendium from Berlin's Hoch Schule der Kunste in 1998, and received his MFA from Hunter College (CUNY) in 1999, where he studied with Roy DeCarava, Mark Feldstein, Juan Sanchez, and Thomas Weaver. He teaches photography at the International Center of Photography in New York City and has been leading Master Workshops in Europe and South America, most recently about marketing and self-promotion for photographers.

Juror's Choice: "pears" by barbara brill from Englewood, NJ USA

Feast your eyes & dig in. From the field to the fork.

From farm to table; the harvesting, preparing and plating of culinary masterpieces. Food, we eat it to survive.  Yet if grown and prepared with intention, these are the dishes we savor.

Cooking can be a lot like taking a great photograph. Both lend themselves to fearless experimentation, adaptation and, ultimately, the creation of something awe-inspiring.

Photography capturing this process is something that all walks of life can connect to and be stirred by.  The act of breaking bread with one another is deeply ingrained in our many traditions and ancestry. 

The act of breaking bread with one another is deeply ingrained in our many traditions and ancestry. Search your library for images that relate to food, growing food, livestock shots, harvesting food, farmers markets, famine, restaurants, kitchens, portraits with food, food fights, and people enjoying food together.

Show us the many textures, colors and consistencies of food, the blood and guts, from the field to the fork.

In Association With 


Juror's Statement:

Sometimes a great food photograph ignores rules and becomes something greater. Case in point: this pear image. While the pear would be considered a bit too ripe by commercial standards, it's real and exactly at the stage you'd want to devour it. And the old adage "less is more" screams in this example of fruit minimalism at its best. So much tension, so much white space that's far from actually being blank. Filled with texture, light variation, ripples, imperfections, there's so much happening here that makes my mind wander with a story. I love everything about this image!
Matt Armendariz
Additional Comments:
Honorable Mention #1: Two Ice Cream Cones Venice
Photographing people with food is easy. Photographing people eating is a whole other story. It can be awkward, unsexy (or too sexy), and uncomfortable. However, in this image taken some time ago, it's a moment in time that's sealed forever. It's real, it's quirky, and tells an amazing story. And the details like the haircut and pants really amuse me.

Honorable Mention #2: Dinner at Farm One
Talk about telling a story! I want to be there! And technically it's a marvel: taken at the right time, the right exposure, the right place. It's simply beautiful.

Honorable Mention #3: Portrait 99S
Stunning. Perfect. Beautiful. This black and white image nails the animal portrait perfectly, resulting in me being lost within the frame. Quite the connection for me.

Juror: Matt Armendariz

For the past 20 years Matt Armendariz has been immersed in food in one way or another. As a former graphic designer and art director in the food industry, he has surrounded himself with great food before he began branching out into photography and blogging as a way to expand and share his passion for all things food and drink. High and low, near and far, food and flavor have always been his driving force and the stories that shape how and what we eat have always captivated him.

Matt began his blog, MattBites.com in 2005 as a way to share his personal take on food and those behind-the-scenes moments he experienced in work. It’s a labor of love that has led to some of his life's most interesting moments and sent him all over the world.

Mattbites.com has been recognized by numerous publications, editors and writers and is one of the charter members of Martha’s Circle, a selection of lifestyle blogs selected by the editors of Martha Stewart Living. In September 2008, he made his favorite cookie recipe with Martha Stewart during her daytime television show devoted to the topic of blogging.

In 2009 he began teaching workshops devoted to food photography as well as speaking on food styling and photography at conferences, schools and colleges.

His first cookbook called On A Stick! was released by Quirk in May 2011. You can find it here. His second book, Focus On Food Photography For Bloggers, was released in 2012 and features tips and tricks for everyone.

Matt’s photo clients include La Brea Bakery, Target, Food Network, Cooking Channel, Coca Cola, In N Out, Pom Wonderful, Coastal Living Magazine, Time Magazine,  Food + Wine,  and various cookbooks.

The Darkroom Gallery Difference

Just as Mary Shelley's Frankenstein emerged from a dream, her motley creation is considered to be one of the earliest examples of science fiction and a great novel for the ages, we ask you to produce and capture your dreams. “The whole series of my life appeared to me as a dream; I sometimes doubted if indeed it were all true, for it never presented itself to my mind with the force of reality.”

― Mary Shelley, Frankenstein

Create your legend, weave your web and spin your yarns. Contact your inner child and dive head-first into a treasure trove of costumes. This exhibit will be on display over Halloween, so make it spooky.

Juror's Statement:

While looking through the submissions, I was impressed and struck by a myriad of responses to the theme. I was curious about finding work that didn't simply accept the truth of reality, and instead focused on ponderings from the imagination. There is no one way to approach this idea. Humor, such as the selections from Sita Mae and Henriette van Gasteren, can be one way to present the inner mind to the outer world. Referencing other mediums, as Michael Blase does with his heavily theatrical approach, serves as an entryway for the audience to interact. Benjamin Amend presents ideas that could only exist in dreams if not translated through photography. Rebeca Saborio shocks us with visual parables, while Melissa T. Hall takes on social commentary through visual absurdity. Regardless of each artists' pathway to realizing inner thoughts, everyone in this exhibit is make believing, and making us believe.

Juror: Andy Bloxham

Growing up in a small Louisiana town, Andy Bloxham turned to his imagination for activity. This playful, creative approach to life extended to Andy's adulthood, where it took form in photography, video, and writing. Receiving an MFA in photography from Louisiana Tech University, his images have appeared throughout the world in numerous group and solo exhibitions, publications, and online media. His photography centers around fictional situations and events, told through the slight hint of a smirking camera. His techniques apply the command of tools ranging from pen, paper, and storyboards, to strobe lighting and digital post-processing. Bloxham's dedication is matched only by the passion he has for extending this creative energy to others. He is an assistant professor of photography at West Virginia Wesleyan College, and a faculty member at the Maine Media Workshops.
