 7th Annual Center Forward Exhibition

Aline Smithson Juror Statement

It was a tremendous honor to co-juror the annual Center Forward Exhibition.  This yearly showcase of forward-thinking photography is a wonderful reflection of the contemporary photography zeitgeist and it was a terrific opportunity to spend time with so much thoughtful work. Hamidah and I both reviewed images separately and made our selections, then began the interesting process of defending our choices and understanding the other person’s perspective.  This made us articulate our thoughts and examine the work in a more profound way. After some healthy give and take, we are so excited with the resulting exhibition.

There are many things to take into consideration when jurying photographs—first and foremost, is the work at an elevated level?  Does the technical expertise match the intention and concept? Is deep thinking involved? And because this was the Center “Forward” exhibition, was the work fresh, unique, and moving beyond the nostalgic and traditional notion of photography?

With this exhibition, we are happy to celebrate photographs that speak to subjects both personal and universal, that use alternative and traditional processes, that are digital darkroom constructions, and use wet darkroom materials to create photographic art.  All the images selected have a high level of artistic expression and reflect the ability to tell meaningful stories.

Thank you for sharing your photographs and for opening our eyes to new considerations. I so enjoyed considering each and every image. Congratulations to this year’s group of Center Forward artists.
