New Directions 2011 – The Portrait: Moments of Being

Picture 2 New Directions seeks to discover new talent in the world of photography. As photographers, we look for faces and expressions that tell stories. We look for character. We look for emotion.

We look for the hook, that moment of being that creates a compelling portrait. Like a modern physiognomy, a portrait tells a story equal parts subject and photographer in a single moment.

Juror – David Bram, Founder and Editor of Fraction Magazine, Albuquerque, NM

As the curator of this show, I will be looking for portraits that are edgy and daring. I want more than a traditional headshot. I want to see work that pushes the boundaries of what is normally called a portrait. (Please note: For this show, my interests are not in photo-journalistic photographs of the homeless, the needy, or third world subjects.)

Photographs by Emmet Gowin and Sally Mann (for example) show a trust and a relationship between the photographer and the subject. There is a connection that is clear to the viewer; this is what I am looking for. I will also be looking for unique styles and interesting compositions. The images might be quiet, honest, sexually charged, or pure. These portraits, color or black and white, should convey a unique and powerful moment of life.

Artists notified – 13 December 2010
A maximum of 5 images may be submitted; traditional or digital imagery may be used.

Wall Space | Santa Barbara exhibition – 4 January – 30 January 2011
