  • A Dog and Her Boy.

    Kathy Hudson Williston, VT USA This image is particularly meaningful to me, as my son's sweet little dog died 2 weeks ago. You can see what joy she brought, and although it's not a classic portrait, well....it always will be for me. Ruby died on July 28, 2011. I wanted to honor her memory with this unconventional portrait showing just how special she was to her boy, Owen.

  • Pieces of Me: Fat

    R.L. Gibson Gatlinburg, TN USA These photographs are the result of a process called Xerography. Complicated layered compositions are hand-transferring to a variety of substrates, in this case onto canvas, resulting in a unique monotype. Xerography has neither a standard place in institutional art instruction nor a documented history. The artist has spent years refining this hand-palatted technique. The 'skips' are not flaws but the unique result of the process. Gibson works as a Xerographist, producing complicated layered compositions and then hand-transferring these images to a variety of substrates resulting in a unique monotype. The “skips” are not flaws but the unique result of the process.

  • Jiving With Miro

    Hugh Jones Arlington, VA USA

  • Penumbra

    Hugh Jones Arlington, VA USA

  • Dorothy In Oz

    Hugh Jones Arlington, VA USA collage of portrait and macro of coffee cups imaged through water drops.

Chris Buck chose 46 images beyond the traditional portrait - more than just a eloquently captured face.  They include uncanny, parody, distortions, subtle suggestions and in-your-face implications.  For “Persona” we sought portraits devised outside the box (or in one, if applicable). We called for captured characters.

There can be more to a superb portrait than a superb likeness of an individual a the testimony to their soul can be visioned way beyond the eyes.  How much can you tell us about a person with just one image?  Their life story?  Perhaps.  How did you show the idiosyncrasies, quirks, that make your sitters both physically and emotionally, individuals?  We can’t wait to fill our gallery walls with a newly visioned kind of face - portrait as character and caricature.

Juror's Statement:
It was really a joy going through this work - playful, inventive and skillful. I love that there was a leaning towards the surreal and the psychological in much of the work. I want to mention that a number of impressive pieces were cut as they didn't relate strongly enough to the portrait theme, particularly some fashion work and street photography.

Juror:  Chris Buck

We’re thrilled to have Chris Buck as inspiration and aesthetic eye for “Persona “  His portraits have been surprising us, making us laugh, causing us to ask questions, and inspiring us to think outside of the box for years.  His brand of image making (over two decades worth) infuses wit with uncommon gesture and implied meaning.   He tells more than a story – he creates tales (sometimes through pure expression).  Chris was the first recipient for the Arnold Newman Portrait Prize (2007), which we think he so rightfully deserved!  His clients include IBM, Microsoft, Moviefone, Citibank, GQ, Blender and The New York Times Magazine.  From uncanny celebrity portraits, to advertising humor, to editorial wisdom, Chris Buck has offered us a very special take on our world of Personas.  His bio is in the pictures – catch a glimpse into Chris Buck’s kind at www.chrisbuck.com.

A road trip is synonymous with nostalgia; they are opportunities for memorable moments of exploration and experience.  The best road trips are the ones that offer us indelible experiences - experiences touching the things and people that we barely get to know and may never see again, but which leave lifelong impressions.

Where have you been?  What and whom did you see?  How did you see them?  Whether it was from a convertible or a bicycle, on trailer or train, boat, parachute or via your own two feet, you’ve captured the essence of the freedoms and inspirations we feel being ‘on the road’.   Show us the photographic moments you’ve captured that will inspire our next trip.
