New Directions 2011

I have been asked to be the Juror for the New Directions 2011 show at the Wallspace Gallery in Santa Barbara CA.  Here’s a bit of info: 

General Information
The submission period for our fifth annual juried show – New Directions 2011 will be open until 20 November 2010.
New Directions seeks to discover new talent in the world of photography. Past shows have included the works of Joseph O. Holmes, Priya Kambli and Joelle Jensen. Each year emerging artists have an opportunity to have their work seen by a nationally recognized figure in the field of photography. From these entries a cohesive show emerges for display at Wall Space in January, and this year we are excited to the opportunity to show ND11 in our gallery in Santa Barbara and Seattle.
All submissions for this exhibition are considered for gallery representation. wall space directors and associates will review the work, however the galleries review will not affect the outcome of the selection process.

Juror 
David Bram is a fine art photographer and the editor, founder, and curator of Fraction Magazine, an online venue dedicated to fine art photography, showcasing the work of both emerging and very established fine art photographers. Fraction Magazine is now published on a monthly basis. Fraction Magazine was founded in 2008 and is currently on it’s nineteenth issue and has shown portfolios from more than 120 photographers.
David has been reviewing portfolios at various events including Review LA, Review Santa Fe, PhotoNOLA, Atlanta Celebrates Photography and Fotofest. He was also a juror for Review Santa Fe in 2010 as well as a juror for Critical Mass in 2009 and 2010. In September 2010, David was the recipient of the Griffin Museum of Photography’s Rising Star Award.

Prospectus for New Directions 2011  
The Portrait: “Moments of Being”
As photographers, we look for faces and expressions that tell stories. We look for character. We look for emotion.
We look for the hook, that moment of being that creates a compelling portrait. Like a modern physiognomy, a portrait tells a story equal parts subject and photographer in a single moment.
As the curator of this show, I will be looking for portraits that are edgy and daring. I want more than the traditional head shot. I want to see work that pushes the boundaries of what is normally called a portrait. (Please note: For this show, my interests are not in photo-journalistic photographs of the homeless, the needy, or third world subjects)
Photographs by Emmet Gowin and Sally Mann (for example) show a trust and a relationship between the photographer and the subject. There is a connection that is clear to the viewer; this is what I am looking for. I will also be looking for unique styles and interesting compositions. The images might be quiet, honest, sexually charged, or pure. These portraits, color or black and white, should convey a unique and powerful moment of life.
For more information please contact the gallery.

Important Dates  
Open Submission period – 1 October 2010 – 20 November 2010
Artists notified – 13 December 2010
Prints due to wall space gallery – 2 January 2011
wall space | Santa Barbara exhibition – 4 January – 30 January 2011
wall space | Seattle exhibition – 1 February – 26 February 2011

Thinner Air by John Mann

John Mann, who was featured in Issue 3 has a new and very limited book available, called Thinner Air.

John was one of my teachers at UNM and is a great friend.  I know how meticulous he is about his work and his printing so I am quite sure this is a terrific little book.

Going to the Griffin

In a few short hours, I leave for the Boston.  I will be receiving the Rising Star award from the Griffin Museum tomorrow night.  It is being presented to me by Mary Virginia Swanson.  Both are unbelievable to me.

Unfortunately, I have to leave my two girls behind.  And after yesterday’s event, I am really sad.

If you will be at the Griffin tomorrow, please make sure to say hello.  I’m sure it’s going to be a great night.

The Fraction Fund

Fraction Magazine is teaming up with photographer Raymond Meeks to kick of the new Fraction Fund, financial assistance for photographers with incomplete photographic projects.

The concept is this:
Ray has just recently announced “who will stay“, the third and final segment of personal journals/artist books, which began with “carousel” and “amwell, continuum“.  Together with Fraction, Ray will be offering a limited edition of 50 books which include an original print, signed and editioned.

When the edition sells out, 20 percent of the sale price (approx. $1000), will go towards the Fraction Fund.
We will then do an announcement and a “Call for Submissions”.  This will be free to enter.  The photographer will be required to send links (not physical prints, please) and a brief statement about the work and why the funds are needed.  (you do not need to buy the book to enter. you must have a personal website; not flickr, facebook, deviatart, etc). 
The winner be selected by David Bram, awarded approximately $1000 and will be included in an issue of Fraction Magazine.

WATCH THIS SPACE FOR THE OFFICIAL KICK OFF IN JANUARY
