"A good photograph is knowing where to stand."  - Ansel Adams

That's a rather simple statement from a master photographer whose methodology and rigorous striving for perfection were anything but simple. Yes, knowing where to stand is important, but so is knowing what to shoot and when to shoot it.  Our juror for this exhibition, Personal Perspective, is Saul Robbins, a well-known photographer, teacher, and critic. He states in his personal bio that (he is) "... interested in the ways people interact within their surroundings and the psychological dynamics..." of that interaction. We all have a unique way of looking at things, a singular vision that can be enhanced and polished by our observations of the world around us through our camera lens. The 42 images comprising this exhibition were carefully selected to represent the singular ways in which the individual photographers included view their world.

Juror's Statement:  

Jurying an exhibition such as this is always a challenge. The power of lens-based imagery is such that through the eyes of others we find new opportunities to consider the myriad ways in which particular themes are addressed, and this selection is no exception. I remain particularly intrigued by where photographers continue to direct their lenses and the subjects they deem worthy of investigation. The images that caught and held my attention are the ones striving harder than usual to place their maker and myself a few steps closer to a thesis that has not yet been so fully articulated as to become cliché. It is my hope that viewers will follow my lead and look, think, and move a step or two closer than usual at the world around us, and to appreciate the inherent potential for discovery that lies in every Personal Perspective.
