The Built Environment

This Exhibit is Sponsored by Scott + Partners

Current Exhbit Open till Jan 21th

Juror: Norman McGrath

Juror's Choice by John Eaton Images that capture a vision of the man made world around us. 

We’ve been documenting the built environment since the beginnings of photography.  It’s natural - our lives are entwined with and dependent upon structures of all kinds.  Let us examine the genius designs, abundant materials both found and fabricated, engineering feats, beauty and function, of our constructed environments.  Technical mastery has much to do with a great architectural photograph, but also an understanding of the architect’s vision, and/or the humanity that invigorates and utilizes its spaces.  Whether a skyscraper or a shed, chasm span or walking bridge, from convenience store to industrial complex, public or personal (heck, an outhouse is a pertinent structure), and even the remains of such, we’re looking forward to featuring your built environments.



Full Color Exhibit Catalog now available at VioVio

Juror Statement:

It is always interesting to see new and different interpretations of my favorite subject: architecture. This selection was not a disappointment. As is always true there is a wide variation in the level of computer skill evident. I am not an expert on this department, but it is nevertheless apparent that many photographers have mastered a high degree of expertise with Photoshop. However, several of the entrants did not exercise enough care to ensure that their compositions were correctly exposed, with some areas washed-out. This of course, could be easily corrected but did nevertheless eliminate a couple of otherwise worthy entries. All in all, a very handsome competition. Thank you for inviting me to judge it.
