Small Works Juror’s Statement

Most people began their relationship with photography with small prints. Pasted into family albums, displayed in tabletop frames, kept in wallets, and magnetized to refrigerators, these objects were precious and intimate. As fine art, photographers who print in small scale may do so for reasons beyond the nostalgic pull of the family photograph. Unlike a painter who must determine the size of their canvas before picking up a brush, a photographer may spend weeks altering the scale of their prints before deciding on a final size. While large-scale prints allow the viewer to get lost in the act of looking, smaller prints invite the viewer to look closer and scrutinize the object in front of them.

 

Submissions for this exhibition were not restricted by process or subject matter, but to a printed size of no more than twelve inches. In curating this exhibition, I looked for photographs that seemed to embrace the small size rather than those that appeared to have been scaled down arbitrarily. Mediums like instant film, tintypes, and other alternative process images are well represented for their inherent small size and attention to the objectness of photography. I thought about how each image would look in the gallery, as an individual object and as part of a cohesive show, seeking photographs for which the diminutive size was an integral part of the photographic process, rather than an afterthought—images whose conceptual framework depended upon a small scale.
