Juror: Sean Kernan
The edges of night, the dawn and dusk times between "the dog and the wolf,"as the French put it, are magical times for photographers. From the rosy first light of early morning to the flickering lights of evening, the edges of night offer photographers opportunities to create suggestive, evocative, and moody images of the world. We are pleased to welcome back the extraordinary photographer, writer, and educator Sean Kernan as the juror for this exhibition. For THE EDGES OF NIGHT, Sean will choose 40 photographs for display at PhotoPlace Gallery from June 18 - July 13. He will also select up to 35 additional photographs for the gallery's Online Annex. All selected work will be included in a full-color exhibition catalog available for purchase. To help artists defray costs, PhotoPlace Gallery offers to mat and frame work selected for exhibition free of charge, providing artists print their images to our pre-cut mat and frame sizes. Submission fee: $25 for five photos, $6 each additional photo.
