Simplicity Photo Contest
sim-plic-i-ty : absence of complication, clarity, clean lines, clearness, straightforwardness, uncluttered, freedom from intricacy or complexity. Many famous and talented artist, writers and thinkers have found reason to make statements concerning “simplicity”.
Leonardo da Vinci quotes “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”. According to Longfellow, “In character, in manner, in style, in all things, the supreme excellence is simplicity”. Plato writes “Beauty of style and harmony and grace and good rhythm depend on simplicity”.
When I photograph, I have always tried to look at whatever is in front of my camera and narrow the frame down to include only the relevant information, always keeping in mind the element that caught my eye in the first place. Removing the distractions is not easy, but can make for a strong, interesting image. Walt Whitman says it most distinctly, “Simplicity is the glory of expression”.
Forty five images will be selected by juror Robert Hecht (www.roberthecht.com) for exhibition. A Blurb full color catalogue of the exhibit with all the accepted images will be available for purchase. Awards are $250 for Jurors Choice, $250 Creativity Award to be chosen by the gallery director, $100 for Visitors Choice and five Honorable Mentions.
