Juror's Choice: "Call Me"  by Mark Indig from Valley Village, CA USA

They say, "a picture is worth 1000 words". For Con[text] we examine the relationships between textual symbols and images. {sharethis}

Combining written word with images has a long history in art.  Medieval manuscripts in Christian Europe are interlaced with pictures that exist in a rhetorical relationship with the written text to create layered meaning and verbal or visual puns.  William Blake, eighteenth century British poet, published books of his writing with his own illustrations and quickly learned that the synthesis evoked meanings beyond the power of words or pictures alone.  Dadaists in early twentieth century Europe combined fragments of found text with appropriated photographic images to open alternative, sometimes irrational, paths of communication they felt were missing from art itself.

The Darkroom Gallery Difference

Darkroom Gallery is calling for photographs that spell it out: images that utilize written language to get across meaning, add visual value and/or compositional balance.  Even those images that have letters hidden or barely noticeable within them, for one to subconsciously read and process.  From street signs to handwriting to collaged compositions all words, symbols & languages that read.
