Black & White 2018 Gallery Exhibition

Whenever I am asked to judge fine art photography, be that in a juried exhibition, a portfolio review, or a submission to the gallery, one question is always going through my mind: is this an interesting photograph, or is it just a photograph of an interesting subject? Selecting the images for the Center for Fine Art Photography’s black and white exhibition was no different.

My preference is always to judge prints in person, as I believe the finished product, the actual physical photograph, is what’s most important, but the image itself must first be captivating. The subject doesn’t have to be exciting or interesting or captivating on its own: the photographer must use his or her own voice to make it so. The mundane can be beautiful (Frank Hamric’s photograph of a standing broom). The light can change something simple into something stunning (Sey Callazo’s Subtle Personality 3). The absurd can be fascinating (I don’t have to know why Claude Peschel Dutombe is shaving his face in the middle of a field to like what I see). The photographs can be shot on the street (Early bird by Anna Zavileiskaia) or elaborately staged (The Form of Chaos by Ross Faircloth), none of it matters, so long as it’s an interesting photograph, not just a photograph of an interesting subject.

I went back and forth with a few pieces that were ultimately excluded because I had to decide where I draw the line on the term “black and white.” Platinum printing, for example, is not a color process by any means but also doesn’t contain the blacks that are found in silver prints, so should they be included? One of my favorite images is printed on an incredibly yellow paper, yielding no white. It was trickier than I expected to define what makes a “black and white” photograph.

For this exhibition, I chose the images I think are best, as great photographs, no matter how diverse, will always make a great show. I will choose the award winners when I’ve seen the prints in person. I’m excited to see the exhibition and hope everyone has enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed selecting the works.
