Monochrome images of any subject matter you choose. Digital, traditional silver gelatin, and alternative process images are all welcome. Tillman Crane has agreed to jury this exhibition and we’re thrilled to have his enthusiastic eye. He will choose 40 photographs for exhibition in the gallery, and up to 35 additional for the gallery’s Online Annex. All exhibited and Annex photographs will be reproduced in the exhibition catalog. A gallery walk-through and workshop with Tillman Crane!
He’ll be reviewing the exhibition, live and in-person at PhotoPlace Gallery on August 28th. It is such a gift to have the juror on-site, sharing the meditations that inspired his decisions. If you’re one of those whose work is chosen by Tillman, you’ll have the unique benefit of hearing him discuss your work and that of your peers. This will be an Opening Reception and an opportunity not to miss! The next day, August 29th, Tillman will conduct a half-day workshop in and around our home town of Middlebury, Vermont. Details on the workshop to be announced.

Until July 1, submit up to TEN photographs for $30, $7 for each additional.

About the Juror:

Tillman Crane began his career in 1978 as a photojournalist for The Maryville Daily Times. Ten years later, he began to teach his craft. While platinum/palladium photographs remain his passion, he was quick to integrate digital vocabulary into his practice. As the medium continues to evolve and Tillman along with it, the content of the artist’s images has remained constant—the ordinary, found in the everyday environments that surround him.
Tillman’s workshops are offered across the globe, from the Erie Canal to China. He teaches location-based curriculum where he is able to share his appreciation for translating the found into successful images, and also the art of platinum printing, to showcase one’s vision through hand-made prints.

For inspiration from Tillman’s portfolios, look for his limited edition books: Tillman Crane/Structure (2001), Touchstones (2005), Odin Stone (2008), and A Walk Along the Jordan (2009).  His work is included in several books on contemporary photography, as well as in collections worldwide. And if you’re in the Camden, Maine area, stop by his gallery at 22 Pearl Street, to see his latest masterful platinum/palladium prints.
