Camera Work Contemporary Portraiture
Black Box Gallery will host a juried group photography exhibition 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?
Juror: Christy Karpinski
Christy Karpinski is the founder and editor of F-Stop Magazine, an online photography magazine that promotes contemporary photography from established and emerging photographers from around the world to inspire and support a community of artists. Christy has a background in Women’s Studies and Sociology as well as an MFA in photography. She teaches photography at Columbia College Chicago.
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.
