Personal Perspective

Personal Perspective

“A good photograph is knowing where to stand.” – Ansel Adams

That’s a rather simple statement from a master photographer whose methodology and rigorous striving for perfection were anything but simple. Yes, knowing where to stand is important, but so is knowing what to shoot and when to shoot it. Our juror for this exhibition, Personal Perspective, is Saul Robbins, a well-known photographer, teacher, and critic. He states in his personal bio that (he is) “… interested in the ways people interact within their surroundings and the psychological dynamics…” of that interaction. We all have a unique way of looking at things, a singular vision that can be enhanced and polished by our observations of the world around us through our camera lens. Asked to photograph the same scene, several photographers may see roughly the same gestalt, but there’s always the one, or the few, mavericks who find a way to pick out details or angles that others don’t see or don’t regard as important. For this exhibition, we’re seeking the different point of view, the unexpected, the unique. Your submissions can be literal impressions of “real life” or they can be abstractions – the important part is to present an image that’s made from your… personal perspective.
