Amateur Photographer of the Year Competition

Portraiture Through the Lens

Portraiture Through the Lens Black Box Gallery will host a juried group photography exhibition Portraiture Through the Lens on contemporary portrait photography. Pose and Gesture, Image and Identity, Constructed Narrative, Self Portrait, Environmental, Vernacular and Snapshot, Fashion and Nude, all have visual arguments to make in the world of portraiture photography. What is the character, attitude and expression that binds this genre together? Exhibition Dates: February 1-20, 2014. Opening Reception: Friday February 7, 5-8:00 pm

Juror: Annick Sjobakken is a Des Moines based photographer and educator. She received her BFA in Photography in 2003 from Parsons School of Design and her MFA in Photography, Video, and Related Media from the School of Visual Arts in 2009. Her work has been featured in The New York Times Magazine, Fraction Magazine, and PDN and has been shown in numerous exhibitions.

Black Box offers free framing, matting and printing for our exhibitions. The photographers who are selected into the exhibition by the juror will provide a high resolution Tiff or JPEG file for our gallery to print. If the photographer prefers, they can send in framed work or prints that we can frame for the exhibition.

We have 18” x 24” black frames. Our white mats are pre cut for 12” x 18”, 12” x 12” and 12” x 16” prints (we also have a few other odd sized matts). We print on an Epson Stylus Pro archival ink jet printer, on Epson Premium Luster Photo paper, in a color-calibrated environment. This is a very accurate custom print, just like a custom lab would print, we have over 20 years of custom printing experience.
