The Darkroom Gallery Difference

With so many sizes, shapes, textures, and tones, our subject matter is endlessly inspiring. How we see, interpret, re-define, and then represent the figure in our photographic work is as diverse as the individuals we celebrate. Show us the Bodies you’ve portrayed through your photographic eye.


Juror's Statement:

My first impression as I did my quick overview was the breadth of styles in the submissions.  And the high level of technique brought to bear in the images.  The result was several extended editing sessions poring over the concepts and great craft participants exhibited in their work.  In the end it was difficult to narrow the field down to a cohesive show, and I felt honored to have been involved in the judging.

Notable was what was not included.  Interesting diptychs, tributes to Kertesz, Mondrian and Japanese printmaking, wonderful self-portraits and playful juxtaposition of the figure in unique environments.  In the end, many well-conceived images were not included because they fell short in composition or technique but the creative process behind the work was truly impressive.

Congratulations to all who submitted.

Allen Birnbach

(Allen selected five "Honorable Mention" images, but he didn't feel comfortable choosing a "Juror's Choice" overall. We selected a "Director's Choice" from those five images. Congrats to Peter Bajzek!)

Juror: Allen Birnbach

Allen Birnbach has worked as a Photographer for over 30 years; from product to non-profit, hospitality to finance and to the performing arts, he has found great success in commercial Photography. His clarity of vision as a professional Photographer flows through his portraiture, lifestyle, landscape and dance portfolios, as well. The breadth of these achievements may be viewed at www.allenbirnbach.com. Birnbach’s body of work represents much more than commercial. Begin by viewing his fine art photography on www.birnbachimages.com, then visit www.birnbachfigureworks.com for extraordinary examples of the fine art nude. There is boundless visual motivation for your own submission to Body, in the galleries on FigureWorks.

Birnbach imparts his photographic skills as a lecturer and instructor at The Santa Fe Workshops, University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), Focus on Nature in Iceland, The Anderson Ranch, and through his own private workshops, NudePhotoWorkshops.com. You’ll find a fantastic blog on his take of photographic education at http://allenbirnbach.squarespace.com/
