Call for Entries: Home is Where the Camera Is: Vermont PhotoPlace Gallery

DEADLINE: Midnight, Monday January 10th, 2011

Home. We photograph our houses, our yards, our children, our friends, our celebrations, our anxieties. And we move beyond ourselves to photograph homes of others–strangers, as well as people we know. Home is where the camera is, and it’s where we use it to record our lives and the lives of others. PhotoPlace Gallery is honored that esteemed photographer Julie Blackmon will act as juror for this exhibition on the theme of “Home.” She will choose forty photographs for exhibition at PhotoPlace Gallery from March 1st through March 26th, 2011. She will also choose an additional thirty-five photographs of these subjects for the gallery’s “On-Line Annex.” All selected work will be included in a full-color exhibition catalogue 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.

Julie Blackmon is known for her photographs of home and family that underscore moments of contemporary life while also drawing on art historical traditions of seventeenth-century Dutch genre painting. Her photographs have appeared on magazine covers and won prestigious awards, including the 2006 Critical Mass Book Award for “Domestic Vacations,” named one of PDN’s top 30 photographers in 2007 and American Photo’s Emerging Photographer of 2008.
