Entry Details

The photographic process begins with the idea… the idea of what the image will be.
It may be the idea to set up a still life, to decide to go to a garden, to choose a model for a particular portrait or nude, or it may be positioning yourself and the camera at a strategic location. Next may come the choice of film… black and white or color, OR, digital, jpg or raw… portrait or landscape, aperture, shutter speed… the composition, and the release. The resulting image may be developed in a darkroom or processed on a computer… burning, dodging, bleaching, fixing… curves adjustments, Layers, saturation, and sharpening. These component steps, and countless other possibilities form the “Layers” of the creative photographic process.

The thought of all the steps, decisions, and serendipities in the creative process of photography is what inspires the name of this exhibit: “Layers.”

We have given a great deal of thought on whether each exhibit should be themed or open. There are merits to both, but everytime we think of choosing a theme, we feel anguish at not seeing the diversity we have come to know and love in our previous exhibits.

In that spirit, RoHo invites photographers to enter photographic images IN ANY STYLE OR GENRE OF PHOTOGRAPHY.
Image capture may be either film or digital. Image compositions are welcome.

This Call for Entries is actually for two completely separate exhibits:

1. “Layers” – Opening May 2011
2. 2nd Floor Gallery Solo Exhibit – Opening August 2011: “RoHo Solos II”

How does this work?
WITH THE ENTRY OF 8 OR MORE IMAGES, the photographer is eligible for a Solo Exhibit in RoHo’s 2nd Floor Gallery IN ADDITION to the “Layers – 2011” exhibit.

As if this is not enough, we are planning on continuing the solo exhibits throughout the next year at least. The first 4 solo exhibiting photographers will be presented in a new annual book series, “RoHo Solos.” The book will showcase the 4 photographer’s solo exhibits.

“Layers – 2011” and the second of our RoHo Solos will be juried by RoHo Co-Director, William Spangler (Bill)

“Layers – 2011:”

Up to 30 of the top images will be exhibited in our physical gallery:
