Contemporary Photographers Contest

Back In Black

Theme: Black and White Photography

A juried exhibition of black and white photography. There is often a classic, nostalgic and dynamic translation to black and white photography. Black and white has an important tradition of luminous, well-crafted and thoughtfully composed imagery. Contemporary photographers are involved in this dialog of history and tradition, but with their own modern voice, visions and aesthetics of imagery.

Juror: Cris Moss

Cris Moss earned his MFA from New York University and BFA from the Pacific Northwest College of Art. He is the Art Gallery Director at Linfield College in McMinnville Oregon, where he is also a Professor of Design and Electronic Media.

Rules/Guidelines: Black Box will provide all framing, matting and printing for our exhibitions. The photographers who are selected into the exhibition by the juror will provide a high resolution Tiff file for our gallery to print for the exhibition. Black Box covers all printing and framing costs. Other arrangements can be accomodated, if artist wants to send in a print.

Each exhibition will have 20 photographers included by the juror.

We have 18” x 24” black frames. Our white mats are pre cut for 12” x 18”, 12” x 12” and 12” x 16” prints (we also have a few odd sized matts). We print on an Epson Stylus Pro archival ink jet printer, on Epson Premium Luster Photo paper, in a color-calibrated environment.

All exhibition prints will be kept in a flat file after the show for future sale and promotion for the photographer, unless the photographer makes other arrangements. This will allow the gallery to further promote our photographers and exhibitions to collectors, curators, critics and to the general public. Black Box will return ship the exhibiton print to artist if preferred.

Black Box Gallery takes a 50% commission on all sales, 50% goes to the photographer. If artist prefers the print does not have to be for sale.
