Juror's Choice: "Antarctica Portal" by Paul M. Murray from Jamestown, RI USAIt is partially a gift of the subject itself, how varied the genre of landscape photography can be.   Combine the extremes of the land each of us has walked, with the variety of visions each of us chooses to communicate, and we're bound to witness just how rare our earth can be.  {sharethis}

Rare Earth Exhibit Catalog now available at VioVio

We're looking to see a range of what landscape images can be:  macro details to vast panoramas, conceptual narratives, abstractions, document, or relational gestures.  We hope to feature varied points of view from every crook and bend, angle and junction, on the globe.  With your unique images, we will honor the extents of this Rare planet we call Earth.

Juror's Statement:

The photography submitted for the Rare Earth competition was a pleasure to review. The work as a whole showed a strong sensitivity to the wondrous qualities of our planet. The styles of capture and post-processing varied greatly, some straightforward in technique, and other highly interpretive. I appreciate any technique that communicates both the emotion of the artist and a sense of place. My initial editing removed photographs that I felt had technical issues, whether in composition, exposure or post-processing. I also focused intently on how I felt the image fit the theme of Rare Earth.

In the later half of my decision-making process, I found it very difficult to narrow down to the required number as I became attached to many more photographs than made the final selections. All of the images were viewed many times over many days of studying the submissions.

Being a landscape photographer myself for 38 years, I was very pleased to see the range of ideas and emotion expressed in the submissions about this Earth. All of them showed a deeply felt value for, and connection to, the land. The high degree of creativity in how photographers are approaching the genre stylistically was encouraging, as was that I saw very few clichés. Whether your photographs made the final cut or not, please continue to photograph and share your work, stay connected with nature and aware of our impact on the landscape so that our children’s children will live on a healthier Earth.

Juror: William Neill

It is no wonder William Neill has developed a deep, spiritual connection with nature, being a resident of the Yosemite National Park area since 1977. His award-winning photography has been widely collected and exhibited in museums and galleries, including the Museum of Fine Art Boston, Santa Barbara Museum of Art, The Vernon Collection, and The Polaroid Collection.

His work has been published in several books: Rachel Carson's The Sense of Wonder, and John Fowles' The Tree. Chronicle Books published his photographs of natural patterns in By Nature's Design (1993), and featured his images in The Color of Nature (1996). The Yosemite Association published a major portfolio of Neill's Yosemite photographs entitled "Yosemite: The Promise of Wildness" (1994). A retrospective collection of his finest landscape photographs was published by Bulfinch Press/Little, Brown & Co, in 1997, entitled Landscapes of the Spirit.

Several periodicals have published his images, including: National Geographic, Smithsonian, Natural History, National Wildlife, Conde Nast Traveler, Gentlemen's Quarterly, Travel and Leisure, Wilderness, Sunset, Sierra and Outside magazines. Neill writes a monthly column "On Landscape", for Outdoor Photographer magazine. Feature articles have appeared in Life, Camera and Darkroom, Outdoor Photographer and Communication Arts (from whom he has also received five Awards of Excellence).

Neill's corporate clients include: Sony Japan, Bayer Corporation, Canon USA, Nike, Nikon, The Nature Company, and Sony Music/Classical.

Perhaps most important to the task of Jurying Rare Earth, is Neill's extensive experience in close observation of others' work - he has been an instructor of photography for 32 years. Mr. Neill is looking forward to the opportunity to see your work, for the purpose of curating what will be an awe-inspiring exhibition of landscape photographs.
