The Darkroom Gallery Difference

Whether walking headfirst into a gale of wind or digging our hands into the soil, we possess an inherent familiarity with the elements. All organic and inorganic substances are combinations of them, be it a time-polished rock or a shiny piece of plastic. A multitude of spiritual practices revolve around these five important pieces of the universe.

We are looking for photographic depictions of the natural world. Landscapes, macro and micro shots, abstractions and realistic images that capture the beauty, uniqueness and magic which makes up our planet.

Juror's Statement:

I truly understand the emotional risk of submitting your heartfelt work to the scrutiny of someone else. If a juror selects your piece, he or she is an awesome judge. If your work is not selected, “What do they know?” But if we decide to bring our work into the world, and as we take the step to push our vision in new directions, two good things can happen regardless of whether we win or not. First, we get to explain our vision to others. To friends as we agonize over the selection, and to the viewer if our work is selected. It is often true that an image should rest on its own merits, but it is also true that being able to talk about your work brings clarity to our path. And second, if we are open, we can learn how to get better. There will always be people that just don’t get what we are doing, but there are often times when our vision is rough or our craft is not perfected. Putting work next to others is a way to better understand where we are on the creative journey.

I did my best to approach the submitted images with open eyes and an open mind. I love all kinds of photography, way outside the realm of what I personally create. I was looking for images that made me go “WOW”, and especially, a quiet “wow”. I responded to images that resonated about a place or conveyed a feeling. I appreciated images where the craft of photography was integrated into the finished piece.

These fifty-eight images are an exciting mix of what people with vision can create. They have made the first important step in creating the image I saw represented as a digital file. Now they get to make a beautiful print, the time-honored second half to photography. I look forward to seeing their efforts.
