Impromptu Photo Contest
The Darkroom Gallery presents the Impromptu Photo Contest. To capture in an instant, an unexpected scene, the unscripted interaction, serendipitous magic in a single shot. The medium of photography skillfully lends itself to chance. In certain instances the medium is defined by how rapidly a single shot can be fired and, in turn, art created.
Just as an improv actor steps onto the stage without any thoughts or goals is his/her head we are looking for the images you took off the cuff that the very telling, thoughtful and insightful ones. Photographs that succeed because they aren’t staged. Work that encapsulates a plot line, a “scene of crime” or unique character-driven exchange.
These haphazard interpretations of reality can be monumentally powerful, humorous, heart-rending or sublime. A moment, frozen forever through the lens of our cameras.
We offer free matting and framing of accepted entries for the duration of each of our exhibition, subject to standard sizes.
The Darkroom Gallery is dedicated to photographers and photography. We host juried photography exhibits, classes, seminars and workshops providing opportunities for photographers from around the world to have their work evaluated by a qualified juror for display in our Vermont gallery, on our web site and published in exhibit catalogs with minimum expense or hassle.
