Photography has always had strong links to the imagination.  From the work of early practitioners like Julia Margaret Cameron to the highly esteemed work of Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison, artists have found countless ways to extend the recording function of the camera into the realms of the fantastic and the surreal.  For the juried exhibition IMAGINED REALITIES we sought photographs that combine the real world with the imagined one in any form.  Constructed images, historic processes, digital alteration, and multi-media work were all welcome.
 
We are thrilled that Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison were the jurors for this exhibition. Internationally known, the ParkeHarrisons have exhibited their work around the world in a variety of solo and group exhibitions.  Their books, The Architect's Brother and Counterpoint have become photo classics. The ParkeHarrisons chose 40 photographs for display at PhotoPlace Gallery. They also selected 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.

Jurors' Statement

We would like to thank each artist/photographer who put themselves and their work ou there for this process.  It has been an honor reviewing your works.

Let's face it, originality is hard work.  Acting as jurors, we sifted through hundreds and hundreds of submissions. This was no easy task as we relied on our collective judgment. So which images made the cut? As usual images that grabbed our attention, gave us pause, and offered a new view into another reality, either disturbing or sublime, never boring or derivative.

Shana and Robert ParkeHarrison
