The Darkroom Gallery Difference

Optical illusions conjured by a variance of processes; from physically meticulous studio setups, to spontaneously captured works of luck, and ones hugely composed in post. Manipulate our perceptions with flourish. Deal with foreshortening, vanishing points, sandwiching negatives or the unique mash up of subjects.  Employ sleight of hand use of color and composition that begs us to ask the question,"How ever did they do that?"

Juror's Statement:

All images should have a purpose - whether it is to tell a story, convey to the viewer an emotion, or to capture a moment of perfection. These are the things that speak to me and how I made my selection. It was a tough decision overall but I was happy to discover some great new works.

Thank you all :)

Benjamin Von Wong
