Juror’s Statement

Since the medium’s inception, the landscape has been a subject of great and continual interest to photographers. The earliest known photograph was neither a portrait nor a still life; it was a view from the upstairs window of the French inventor Nicéphore Niépce’s home. Whether through pictures of backyards, cities, or nature in its most pristine forms, photography provides a vehicle for understanding our surroundings.

Over 2,000 photographs were submitted for consideration for this exhibition, a volume that attests to the continued resonance of the environment as a source of inspiration. The submitted photographs range from the built environment and other evidence of the presence or impact of people on the land to sprawling, unspoiled vistas and views of the smallest details drawn from nature. The approaches taken were equally varied from black-and-white to color, analogue to digital, documentary to conceptual.

The photographs included in this exhibition speak to this diversity, offering a broad- strokes interpretation of the landscape, a subject that no single exhibition can expect to fully describe. I was most attracted to those photographs that opened up with further reflection, or drew my attention to facets or viewpoints of the landscape that I might otherwise have never noticed or considered. I was captivated by those images that tell stories,—or make me craft my own stories—through their subtlety and ambiguity. Typically, a good photograph does not require a paragraph explaining its significance or the surrounding context. All that is necessary of the viewer is close, concerted looking.

I selected photographer Sarah Christianson for the Juror’s Award. Christianson submitted three compelling, well-executed photographs from her body of work When the Landscape is Quiet Again: North Dakota’s Oil Boom. Individually, the photographs allude to a landscape in flux—a landscape in turmoil—but they retain a sense of mystery. They are eerily quiet photographs with an understated ambivalence that separates her approach from one that is purely journalistic or editorial. With only these three pictures, a compelling narrative begins to unfold about a particular place at a particular moment. And yet, Christianson uses a single case study to describe a wider issue in contemporary society: our fraught relationship to the land and its resources. _ Allie Haeusslein
