Call for Entries: Wide-Awake Dreaming, Vermont PhotoPlace


Deadline: September 13th

The Night of the Storm (c) Russell Joslin

Juror: Russell Joslin, photographer and editor of SHOTS magazine

Dreams and fantasies often seem like the terrain of stories and poems, rather than the literal lens of the camera. However, from the early days of the medium to the present, the capacity of the photograph to suggest, as well as to state, has preoccupied visionary photographers. For “Wide-Awake Dreaming” we seek photographs that conjure up states of mind, memories, emotions, metaphors, and the surreal through their subjects and style.

Juror Russell Joslin will select forty photographs for exhibition on the walls of PhotoPlace Gallery in August and on the gallery website. An additional thirty-five images will be chosen for PhotoPlace’s “On-Line Gallery 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.
