There is no theme for this exhibition. The images will be evaluated as a cohesive body of work, rather than individual images. Fifteen photographers will be chosen to display their twelve-image portfolios in the Center's Portfolio ShowCase Volume 6 book and online exhibition.
Melissa DeWitt is owner and editor of Hotshoe International, one of Europe's leading contemporary photography magazines showcasing the best portfolios across a wide range of photographic genres and keeping international readers informed on the latest and best in the world of contemporary photography. Established over 30 years ago, Hotshoe's aim is to showcase the best work in a variety of photographic styles and, at the same time, foster a broader un- derstanding of the medium. Portfolios featuring emerging talent are provided a vital platform and sit alongside those of more established artists.
With selection for this exhibition, featured artist's work will be seen by an international audience of collectors, curators, art consultants, and other advocates of fine art photography. Each participant will be included in the Center's Online Gallery exhibition as well as published in thePortfolio ShowCase Volume 6 Book. Select artists also will receive a blog feature at the Center's blog PERSPECTIVES.
Juror's Selection: The juror will select one portfolio to be the first presented in the book and will select an image from the portfolio to be the book cover.
Solo Exhibition Award: One photographer will be chosen to display their portfolio in the Center's South Gallery.
Each participating artist will receive a complementary book.
