Juror’s Statement
“Night” – the word alone evokes many thoughts and emotions. More than half our lives are spent in the dark, it just doesn’t feel that way because it happens to be when we sleep and recharge for the daylight hours. There is a mystery to the night that can conjure both excitement and fear. This may be in part due to the fact that humans do not see well in darkness and therefore so much is unknown.
Thanks to the technical capacities of the camera, the night offers many fruitful opportunities for a creative photographer and while jurying this exhibition I sought to select a range of images that represent these possibilities – color, black and white, straight, time exposed and even selective focus. My selection evokes the complex emotional experiences we have at night from the excitement, or even euphoria, of social gatherings to the isolation, dislocation and mystery of the loner in darkness.
There were more quality images than we could possibly fit into the exhibition but after spending many hours scrutinizing the submissions I made a selection that I believe explores both the emotional and technical range of photographing at night. As Geoff Dryer recently wrote, “…the atmosphere of a given picture depends on how dark it is, on the balance of memory – of the day that has gone – and the promise of what night will bring. At dawn the dreams of night give way to the facts of day, when you are able to see what was previously hidden.” Hopefully this selection will illuminate the mystery and beauty that is present once dusk falls.
Sean Corcoran
