The Alternative Approach Photo Contest

The Alternative Approach Photo Contest Alternative process photography today is a blend of contemporary ideas and historical techniques. Many photographers have rediscovered some of the forgotten early processes, bringing a unique style to present-day image making. Incorporating these processes into their work involves both skilled craftsmanship and a creative blending of new and old. For our third annual alternative process exhibition, The Alternative Approach, The Kiernan Gallery seeks photographers who use unconventional, historic photographic techniques in their work.

Juried by Christopher James: an internationally known artist and photographer whose photographs, paintings, and alternative process images have been exhibited in galleries and museums in this country and abroad. His work has been published and shown extensively, including exhibitions in The Museum of Modern Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The George Eastman House, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The first two editions of his book, The Book of Alternative Photographic Processes (Delmar Cengage -Albany, NY), have received international critical acclaim and are universally recognized by artists, curators, historians, and educators as the definitive texts in the genre of alternative process photography and photographically integrated media and culture. A significantly expanded 850 page, 600 image, 3rd edition will be published in 2013. Christopher, after 13 years at Harvard University, is presently University Professor, and Director of the MFA in Photography program at The College of Art and Design – Lesley University. He is also a painter, graphic designer, and a professional scuba diver.
