Call for Entries: The Poetry of Shadows, PhotoPlace Gallery

Submission Instructions

As a counterpart to PhotoPlace Gallery’s recent exhibition, “The Language of Light,” we seek submission for “The Poetry of Shadows.” Light and shadow are key ingredients to photography. From dark and moody images to abstract designs, shadows can work in a variety of ways. For this exhibition, esteemed photographer, teacher, and writer Christina Z. Anderson will select forty photographs for exhibition at PhotoPlace Gallery from August 16th through September 10th, 2011. She will also choose an additional thirty-five photographs 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.

Christina Z. Anderson is Assistant Professor of Photography and Photo Option Coordinator at Montana State University, Bozeman, where she specializes in alternative and experimental process photography. She is one of 16 national board members of the Society for Photographic Education (SPE) as well as an Educational Advisory Board member for Freestyle Photo. She has authored three books: Tutti Nudi, Reflections on the Reemergence of the Nude during the Italian Renaissance, The Experimental Photography Workbook, and Alternative Processes, Condensed. In the works is a comprehensive book on the history and practice of gum printing. Anderson’s alternative process works have been published in The Book of Alternative Photographic Processes, 2nd Edition, Photographic Possibilities, 3rd Edition, PhotoTechnique Magazine, the British Journal of Photography, and Silvershotz and exhibited in over 60 shows in 22 states as well as Puerto Rico, China, Belgium, England, and New Zealand.
