Illumine Photo Contest
Darkroom Gallery is accepting entries into the Illumine Photo Contest. Light is that which compels a photograph into being: shifting, glowing, luminous, obscure or brilliant. For Illumine we are looking for works that explore the vast languages of light. Low light, bright light and every stop in between. Light can be luminous & rich, or a stark spotlight, it can wildly dance, or softly edge darkness and cast shadows. Light can reflect and sparkle or be blinding and disarming. Natural light vs. man-made light sources: sunrises and sunsets, moonlight and neon light! Photographs are steeped in emotive qualities that go well beyond the work’s subject and content, an almost indecipherable layer is em-parted through the usage of light.
We offer free matting and framing of accepted entries for the duration of each of our exhibition, subject to standard sizes. Photographers set their own prices if they wish to sell their work and retain all rights to their photographs
