Photographs can record the detail of the world as we see it. But they can also enable us to present the world as we imagine it. The juried exhibition Wonderland: Photographic Fantasies features photos that envision the realms of dreams, the fantasies, and surreal world of the imagination. Juror Blue Mitchell is an independent publisher, curator, and photographer. Based in Portland, Oregon, he has been involved with many faucets of the photographic arts. Mitchell received his BFA from Oregon College of Arts & Crafts, where he studied photography. Since then, he has curated and juried several photography exhibitions, created an online photography gallery (platestopixels.com), and launched a new fine art photography magazine called Diffusion.
For Wonderland, Blue selected forty photographs for exhibition at PhotoPlace Gallery in July, 2011. He also chose an additional thirty-five photographs for the gallery’s “On-Line Annex.” All selected work will be included in a full-color exhibition catalogue available for purchase.
