On the Street Where You Live | PhotoPlace Gallery
Juror: James P. Blair

From front stoops to back alleys, subways to suburbia, Main Street to Wall Street, the streets we call home shape us.

Show us what’s going on where you live, work, or play. Street scenes, portraits, landscapes — we want to see what makes your neighborhood what it is.

We are very pleased that James Blair will be juror for this exhibition. Jim will choose 40 photographs for exhibition in the gallery, and an additional 35 for the gallery’s Online Annex. All 75 photographs will be reproduced in an exhibition catalog.

Submit 5 images for $30; $7 each additional.


About the Juror: 
Jim Blair was a staff photographer at National Geographic for 32 years. Between 1962 and 1994, the magazine published 46 of his bylines and over 2,000 of his photographs. His work took him throughout much of the world, and to countless neighborhoods.

Jim studied with Harry Callahan and Aaron Siskind at the Institute of Design at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago. Today his photographs are represented in the permanent collections of the National Portrait Gallery , the Museum of Modern Art, the Portland (Maine) Museum of Art, and the Carnegie Museum of Art . Since retiring from the National Geographic Society in 1994, Jim has continued to photograph, teach, and lecture. He is represented by both Getty Images, and the National Geographic Society’s Image Collection.
