Juror: Mary Ann Lynch

Photography is about time, not just the present moment when a photograph is made, but also the past.  For Looking Back: The Art of Nostalgia, we sought work that explores the ways in which a photograph can take us back in time, through subject, outlook, process and other means.  We are pleased to welcome Mary Ann Lynch as the juror for this exhibition.    Mary Ann chose 40 photographs for display at PhotoPlace Gallery from  August 13th though September 6th. She also selected up to 35 additional photographs for the gallery's Online Annex. All selected work will be included in a full-color exhibition catalog 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.

Juror's Statement

As the juror for Looking Back: the Art of Nostalgia, my task was to review many images and from those select photographs for the PhotoPlace Gallery exhibition and the Online Annex. In the works here, each photographer seamlessly blends all elements, from the formal and conceptual to craft and materials, to create depth, emotive power, and levels of meaning.  On the personal level, a successful image will touch the heart, engage the eye, and hold up to repeat viewings. It’s the result of the maker’s listening to and being guided by one’s own senses, in terms of subject, approach, and finalization. These criteria apply equally to the broad spectrum of styles today, from traditional black-and-white analog photography and alternative processes to digitally enhanced imagery and fabricated works created with a combination of computers, art, photography and technology. All of those are represented in this collection.  

The images’ varied sensory and visceral appeals may stir compassion, humor, longing, mystery, pathos, thoughtful moments, even wonderment. This is a grand journey into “The Art of Nostalgia.” Take your time and return.
