Photography can be a way of recording the facts of the visual world. But the medium can also allow us to envision people, places,or things that extend beyond our usual sense of reality. For the exhibition MYSTERIOUS VISIONS: DREAMS, FANTASIES, AND MIRAGES, we seek photographs that encourage us to enter the world of the dream, with all its mysteries and fantasies. We are thrilled to welcome our very own Emma Powell as the juror for this exhibition. Emma will choose 40 photographs for display at PhotoPlace Gallery from April 23 - May 18, 2013. She will also select 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. Submission fee: $25 for five photos, $6 each additional photo.
Award-winning photographer and educator Emma Powell specializes in photographs that balance on the fine line between reality and the dream. Her photographs have been shown in numerous exhibitions around the world and featured in many publications, including Diffusion Magazine, Super Massive Black Hole, Lenscratch, SHOTS Magazine, YET, SEITIES and others.
