Portrait: Self and Others
Deadline for submissions: Jun 12, 2023
Juror: Elizabeth Avedon
Prints due: Jul 20, 2023
Exhibition: August 8 - August 30, 2023

A great portrait reveals something of the depth, history, and emotional state of the subject, at least as captured in a single moment in time. Although many portraits zero in on the face, many fine images don't show the face at all, instead using light, gesture, context, and other nuances of expression to create an informative portrait.
For this exhibit we seek portraits, self- or otherwise, that go beyond the surface to explore a deeper vision of the subject and, hopefully, draw an emotional response from the viewer.

All capture methods and processes are welcome.

We are very pleased that Elizabeth Avedon will jury and curate this exhibition. She will select approximately 35 images for exhibition in the gallery, and 40 for our Online Gallery. All 75 selected images will be promoted on social media, reproduced in the exhibition print catalog, and remain permanently on our website, with links to photographer’s URL.
