Juror's Choice:"The Time of Our Lives" by Maya Stoller Brattleboro, VT

Mansfield Union High School Arts teacher This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

What makes your photography unique and different from others? What techniques or approaches energize your work?

Part of the growth and development of any artist is to develop a personal style that is uniquely their own. Style may include subject, perspective, composition, depth of field, lighting, post production treatment (darkroom or digital) and printing.

The Darkroom Gallery Difference

For this year's high school exhibition we seek creative images, work that goes beyond the expected, the typical, and that applies the tools of photography through one's own individual sensibilities. For inspiration look to these great photographers: Diane Arbus, Ralph Eugene Meatyard, Cindy Sherman, Richard Avedon and Aaron Siskind


Juror's Statement:

“Placed between the eye of the photographer and the world, the camera reveals both man and the outside world.” Lisette Model

Juror's Choice to receive a set of Douglas Beasley's Vision Quest Assignment CardsA photograph is simultaneously an image and the result of a long series of decisions. At the point of capture, the photographer chooses the subject, the moment, distance, camera angle, depth of field (range of focus), shutter speed, and composition. The exposure may then be interpreted, in the darkroom or on the computer. Editing and printing techniques run the gamut from simple to complex, and from general to highly refined.

The images chosen for this exhibition were those that demonstrated both control of the medium and a sense of individual creativity. Some reveal an expressive instant or subject; some were produced with deliberation and intention; and some gained creativity through the translations of editing or printing.  

In assessing “personal style,” I selected images that were less common, or expected, and those where the photographer’s distinct vision was made visible. 

It was my pleasure to share in the endeavors of these rising young photographers.

Thank you and enjoy!

Jordan Douglas

Juror: Jordan Douglas

Jordan Douglas has been an adjunct professor of Fine Arts at Saint Michael’s College since January of 2004. He is also currently an adjunct professor of photography at Burlington's Champlain College. Teaching is nothing new for Douglas, his father was an art professor so leading a class always came naturally. He has taught drawing and photography through out Vermont at Burlington High School, Burlington City Arts, the Springhouse School of the Arts, and at Artspace. Douglas received his B.A. in Studio Art at the University of Vermont and has been involved in the art world ever since. He has had exhibitions throughout Vermont, in places such as Burlington, Shelburne, Waitsfield, and Rutland. Art has always been a part of Douglas’s life and that interest soon grew into a love for photography. Although photography is the focus of his career, he still remains creatively involved in both painting and drawing and often combines the artistic forms in his works, blurring the lines between what is created and what is real. Current projects: Jordan is recontextualzing found antique photographs using alternative analog techniques.
