The Language of Light
Photography. When Sir William Herschel sought a way to describe exciting new advances in mechanical image-making in 1839, he decided on the word “photography” from the Greek roots for “light” and “writing.” Since then, photography has developed its own languages of light. Day or night scenes, subjects in bright or dim light, natural or enhanced illumination all contribute to the language of light in photography today.
For this juried exhibition, juror Paul Paletti, founder and director of Paul Paletti Gallery, will select images in which light is key element in the photograph. He will choose forty photographs for exhibition at PhotoPlace Gallery from March 15 through April 8th, 2011. He will also choose an additional thirty-five photographs of these subjects for the gallery’s “On-Line Annex.” All selected work will be included in a full-color exhibition catalogue available for purchase. To help artists defray costs, PhotoPlace Gallery offers to mat and frame work selected for exhibition free of charge, providing artists print their images to our pre-cut mat and frame sizes.
