The Darkroom Gallery Difference

Our bodies: forbidden, subverted, suppressed. Our bodies: elevated, venerated, and sanctified. The human form is unceasingly beautiful, complex, and remarkable. It is one of the very few things that all of us has in common, and yet is a source of perpetual cultural, spiritual, and scientific dissension. What better proof of this diversity than through the Photographic Arts. The Human Form has been its eternally devoted, perpetual muse. The body insights love, loss, envy and greed, devotion and esteem.

Juror Statement:

I was honored to jury the images for "The Human Form", but given the number of strong submissions, it soon became evident how complex the task would become.   I strove for diversity within the genre, often comparing similar images against one another where only minutia brought one to the forefront.  But it is that minutia that makes images stronger...an attention to detail in lighting, the crop, or where shadows or highlights are placed. Other photographs, though often strong,  weren't chosen because they were more about the process, location, or a compelling portrait that was less about the resulting human form.  In the end, the "less is more approach" and those images that asked questions, comprised the final choices that make this exhibition.

Attention to details is why I chose "Strength" as the winner.  The photographer was present in all aspects when he/she made the image. Just as those that received honorable mentions were present when they clicked the shutter.  With so little information,  in "Film Noir light through door",  I can feel the rest of the person and I am curious; "She Breaches" finds the male/female in the same image; the honest gaze/gesture in  "Addressed" haunted me; "Spider Girl" was again an image of conscious, elegant choices; and from experience I could respect how difficult it is to portray the beauty in "Sunrise".  I learned a lot looking at these images. For the chance to see through the eyes of so many talented photographers, we should all be grateful.

Juror: Elizabeth Opalenik

Elizabeth’s work has been featured in Zoom, Camera ArtsBlack and White Magazine, Silvershotz, Photo District News, Collectors Photography and Progresso Fotografico, among others.  Commercial clients including Life Magazine, Gossard Lingerie, Coty Perfume, Michael Good Design, Sea Air Holidays and ongoing campaigns for The Ladies Professional Golf Association and Nancy Lopez Golf.  She is exhibited, collected and published internationally and recently published her first monograph "Poetic Grace: Elizabeth Opalenik Photographs 1979-2007".

She uses the Mordançage darkroom process, hand painting, and contemporary digital imaging in mix, utilizing their combined boundless creative possibilities.   Between imagination and dreams, she believes all great photographs are an extension of the photographer – in essence, self-portraits.  Her darkroom skills, photo therapeutic approach, and the inspiration from her work, make her a popular facilitator.  She conducts photography workshops internationally, in partnership with the Santa Fe Photographic Workshops, the Maine Media Workshops, the British Guild of Portrait Photographers, National Geographic Expeditions, The Rencontres d’Arles, and others.

We are honored to have Elizabeth lend her eye to the Darkroom Gallery as Juror for “The Human Form.”  In the meantime, visit her at www.opalenik.com.

The Darkroom Gallery Difference

These two masters enriched the history of photography by being some of the first to experiment with new technologies in a relatively new art medium. They were also traditionalists and truly embraced manual and old photography processes. The hundred and fifty photographers from Steichen's world is millions today, and finding "as perfect a kind of photograph as was ever made" is no longer as simple. Digital cameras and editing software have transformed the medium and opened up whole new worlds for the 21st century photographer. We have dozens of "aps" that help us tweak a digital image to "perfection" in minutes. A vast repertoire of image resources we look to for inspiration and meaning still brings us to the same point of reflection as photographers of the early 20th century: what is the art of photography?

Black and white photography, a genre that many would claim made them fall in love with image-making in the first place, has remained completely relevant and contemporary despite it's ancient roots. It is timeless, sometimes soft, sometimes dramatic and brings new perspective to images and image making. Whether you are a darkroom purist or a Photoshop craftperson, show us your love for hue-less images. We want to see YOUR best black and white or alternative process images for an exhibit that will pay tribute to the origins of photography and praise it's development.

Juror's Statement:

The jury process for this exhibit was very challenging. There are many great photographs, very strong and creative work. Some although beautiful and creative could not be chosen because they are simply over exposed or over saturated. Even though the original idea, composition or the moment captured is great I did not include some due to overexposed areas or work that is too dark. Some photographs lacked focus. So to sum up: do not over expose, be careful with sharpening, work on composition. The selected works for this exhibition is a representation of strong photographs, that make a great impact, give a strong first impression, are technically correct and are very creative photographic works.

It was a great experience and honor to see all this great work. I thank all photographers including those who's work was not selected. Art is very subjective and I chose what feels right to me, which is not the same for everyone. Keep up the good work. I would be happy to discuss photography with any photographer in this contest.

Juror: Rafal Maleszyk

Growing up in southern Poland, Maleszyk spent his childhood and early years in post-communist Poland. He first started exploring photography using a 35mm Kiev on his fourteenth birthday, and learnt how to develop black and white prints in the dark room set up by his father in the family kitchen.

Maleszyk’s photography is rooted in his interest in natural landscapes. For him, photography is the ultimate artistic form that captures one’s encounter or oneness with nature. His style focuses on simplifying and expressing with intimacy the perspectives in nature. His training in fine art has helped him with the craft of composition and experimentation.

In 2009, he moved to the Oahu island of Hawaii, where he now works as a professional fine art black and white landscape photographer, specializing in large format prints series using a digital medium format Hasselblad camera. To date, his photographic portfolio covers landscapes from many countries including Poland, Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and El Salvador.

Maleszyk has received numerous awards. In 2011 his work has received over 10 awards and recognitions as well as publication in Silvershotz magazine from Australia, Black & White Magazine in USA, Camera obscura as well LensWork. We are very happy to have him juror our first black and white photography exhibition at the Darkroom Gallery.

Juror's Choice by John Eaton

Images that capture a vision of the man made world around us. 

We’ve been documenting the built environment since the beginnings of photography.  It’s natural - our lives are entwined with and dependent upon structures of all kinds.  Let us examine the genius designs, abundant materials both found and fabricated, engineering feats, beauty and function, of our constructed environments.  Technical mastery has much to do with a great architectural photograph, but also an understanding of the architect’s vision, and/or the humanity that invigorates and utilizes its spaces.  Whether a skyscraper or a shed, chasm span or walking bridge, from convenience store to industrial complex, public or personal (heck, an outhouse is a pertinent structure), and even the remains of such, we’re looking forward to featuring your built environments.

Juror Statement:

It is always interesting to see new and different interpretations of my favorite subject: architecture. This selection was not a disappointment. As is always true there is a wide variation in the level of computer skill evident. I am not an expert on this department, but it is nevertheless apparent that many photographers have mastered a high degree of expertise with Photoshop. However, several of the entrants did not exercise enough care to ensure that their compositions were correctly exposed, with some areas washed-out. This of course, could be easily corrected but did nevertheless eliminate a couple of otherwise worthy entries. All in all, a very handsome competition. Thank you for inviting me to judge it.

Juror: Nikos Economopoulos

Spontaneity is the hallmark for great documentary and street photography where the moments of life, often ironic, poignant, emotionally charged, tragic or absurd are frozen. Photography provides the means to capture a moment but which moment makes all the difference. Well known masters include Henri Cartier-Bresson and W. Eugene Smith with recent discoveries such as Vivian Maier and Frank Oscar Larson adding to a long list of great photographers.

The Darkroom Gallery Difference

Many of the scenes captured by practitioners of this art, with the possible exception of war and extreme sports documentary, pass before us every day, but we do not see. This exhibit is dedicated to those who strive to see, realize and then manifest vision and moment into an image so that we can all see what is right in front of us or inaccessible in some other way. Showing us the remarkable moments that make up the, often unconscious, human experience.

 

Juror's Statement:

What I was looking for mostly in my selection, beyond the interesting content or form, was an element of transcendence, something that surpasses what it actually describes and goes beyond. I believe that this is what makes a photo different, what makes it stand on its own, what makes it magical. Contemporary photography, in my opinion, no longer needs the 'beautiful' or 'correct' images that it massively produced in the past. I think it mostly needs the kind of photos which redefine the reality that surrounds us rendering it with a new dimension, more personal and, at times, even magical. It is the same thing that literature and the other arts achieve, recasting simple, everyday things and giving them a longer duration.

Juror: Nikos Economopoulos

 

Nikos Economopoulos began his photography career inn 1988 with a long-term project in Greece and Turkey. He photographed whatever he came across on his daily walks: street scenes, public gatherings, solitary meanderers, or deserted landscapes. In 1990 After joining Magnum Economopoulos' photographs began to appear in newspapers and magazines worldwide. In the same year he started to take photographs in Albania, Bulgaria, Romania and the former Yugoslavia, investigating the territorial, ethnic and religious tensions of the region, as well as the endurance of traditional social and religious rites. This work earned him the Mother Jones Award in 1992.

Subsequent work includes lignite miners and the Muslim minority in Greece, people living along the Green Line dividing southern and northern Cyprus; illegal immigrants at the Greek-Albanian border; and young residents of Tokyo, mass emigration of ethnic Albanians fleeing Kosovo. He was given the Abdi Ipektsi Award for peace and friendship between Greece and Turkey in 2001. Nikos has published ten books and his work is in the permanent collections of Centre Méditerranéen de la Photographie and the Benaki Museum. He organizes a series of photography workshops in locations in eastern Europe, Asia and Africa.
