Amateur Photographer of the Year Competition
Field Work: Shadow and Light

Field Work: Shadow and Light

A juried group photo show on shadow and light.

Photography is the recording of patterns of darkness and light. Shadows enhance the relationships of subjects in an image, they give definition and dimension, which compliments the quality of the light values. Photographers have used dramatic shadows and patterns in black and white images and have also explored using ethereal and moody shadows and textures in color photography. We will be looking for a range of how shadow and light are interpreted by contemporary photographers.

Juror: Lauren Henkin

Born in Washington, D.C., artist Lauren Henkin graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Architecture from Washington University in St. Louis and now resides in Maine.

Henkin’s work is focused on the tension between preservation and extinction—from fading relationships to invasive growths to material possessions. Her work resides in over twenty institutional collections including Cleveland Museum of Art, Portland Art Museum, Smith College Museum of Art, and Brown University’s Bell Gallery, among others. Yale University has the largest collection of her work at 100+ photographs. She recently was awarded Duke University’s 2017 Archive of Documentary Arts Collection Award for Documentarians of the American South.Blouin Artinfo, Musée Magazine, PDN, New York Magazine, Oxford American, Landscape Stories, L’Oeil de la Photographie, The Georgia Review, The Maine Review and The Washington Post have all featured her photographs.
