Home.  We photograph our houses, our yards, our children, our friends, our celebrations, our anxieties.  And we move beyond ourselves to photograph homes of others--strangers, as well as people we know.  Home is where the camera is, and it's where we use it to record our lives and the lives of others.  PhotoPlace Gallery was honored that esteemed photographer Julie Blackmon acted as juror for this exhibition on the theme of "Home."  She chose forty photographs for exhibition at PhotoPlace Gallery from March 1st through March 26th, 2011.  She also picked an additional thirty-five photographs of these subjects 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. Please scroll down to see selected photographs.

Juror's Statement:

After looking at nearly 1,000 photographs over the past few days, so much compelling work made it difficult to chose just 75. It was apparent early on in the process that photography's reflection in our personal lives at home is continually evolving to reveal a change in how we interpret and visually depict the subject of "home," both because of the ever-changing definitions of family in our culture, and because of the photographic technology available to us in the last few years. Yet when it comes down to the themes of family life and home. . . some things never change. The intimacy, the tenderness, the passion for life and those we love, the small stories found in the most ordinary everyday moments, and even the sometimes inescapable angst built into all of it, are the same things that have defined "home" long before our digital cameras and computer software came along. In the end, the work that seemed the strongest to me either immediately moved me on some level of humanity that I could connect with, or simply held my attention and kept me coming back again--much the same criteria I use when I edit my own work at home.

Julie Blackmon
