The Matter of Light
With co-juror Katherine Ware
What is a photograph? The origins of the word photography give us the broad idea of writing with light, while dictionary definitions tend to describe photography as we have known it, rather than offering some essential quality against which to measure. However we may define a photograph, what is certain is that its close connection with the world we see continues to pay a powerful role in art-making.
For this call we are looking for work that addresses this issue within our A Matter of Light theme. As usual we encourage artists working with photography in unconventional ways to submit—including (but not limited to) assemblage, historic processes, installation, mixed media, hand crafted processes, etc.
