Snapshot Aesthetic Domestic and Everyday Photo Contest

Snapshot Aesthetic Domestic and Everyday Photo Contest Black Box Gallery will host a juried group photo show on snapshot, domestic and everyday photography. Kodak introduced the idea “celebrate the moments of your life” and forever changed the visual world. Family photos, sunsets, pets, tourism, parties, friends and home all have become part of our documentation and visual communication. Phone cameras and photo sharing such as Facebook, Instagram and Flicker have made the medium of photography an exploding phenomena of digital imagery. More traditional fine artists such as William Eggleston, Gary Winogrand and Nan Golden have long argued for the casual everyday subject matter as strikingly ordinary and artistically valid.

Juror: Stacey McCarroll Cutshaw

Photography historian, curator, and educator Stacey McCarroll Cutshaw is editor of Exposure the journal of the Society for Photographic Education. Previously Director and Curator at the Boston University Art Gallery, she organized the exhibition Offspring: Representations of Children in Contemporary Visual Culture, co-curated In the Vernacular: Everyday Photographs from the Rodger Kingston Collection, and edited and contributed an essay to the publication, In the Vernacular: Photography of the Everyday (2008). She was also the curator and author of the exhibition and publication, California Dreamin’: Camera Clubs and the Pictorial Photography Tradition (2004). Stacey organized Selections from the Polaroid Collections, a series of large-scale exhibitions installed at Polaroid Corporation sites around Boston, where she worked as a special projects consultant.
