Chiaroscuro

Chiaroscuro

Chiaroscuro [kee-ahr-uh-skyoo-roh] is defined as “the distribution of light and shadow in an image” or ” the use of deep variations and subtle gradations of light and shade, especially to en-hance the delineation of character and for general dramatic purposes”. To the photo-grapher the play of light and shadow is the very essence of the medium.

The many nuances and subtleties in the contrast of shadow and light are crucial in establishing a photographic narrative. Light can glow, dance, blaze, bounce and flash. It can be dim or radiant, brilliant or gloomy. Shadow can cut through an image like a blade or reveal an object in the finest gradients.

For this exhibition, we’re looking for photographs that graphically illustrate the interplay of shadow and light, darkness and illumination. How have you utilized the relationship between light and shadow to create drama, emotion and nuance in your photos? Chiaroscuro is your opportunity to show off your photographic vision of darkness and light.
