On The Road: Travel Photography
Middlebury, VT 05753
Travel enables us to broaden our horizons, and photographing while on the road encourages us to look with special attention at the people and places we encounter. For ON THE ROAD: TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHY, juror Sandra Chen Weinstein chose forty photos for exhibition at PhotoPlace Gallery. She also selected an additional thirty-five photos 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. Sandra Chen Weinstein is an award-winning independent documentary photographer living in Orange County California. Originally from Taiwan, she has worked and lived in various countries throughout Asia. She is a self taught photographer and has received numerous national and international awards and exhibitions for her artwork.
It is an honor to be the juror for this competition and see these amazing images from the many different photographers sharing their vision of travel and passion for the medium of photography. With more than 900 hundred images to review, it was a challenging, even daunting task to select only 75 images for the gallery and online exhibitions. There were a handful of images that really stood out and yet, choosing the top 40 was not easy. The selection features so many areas in which contemporary photography is focused: travel, landscapes, portraits, personal projects, and abstract images. There are some striking single images throughout. All through the hours I spent reviewing the submissions, I especially would like to mention the artists Corey Hendrickson, Michael Sibilia, Frank Armstrong, and Kasey Hembel who presented strong series from what I imagine are wonderful bodies of work. Even though I could not include all the photographers in the final selection I want to congratulate those whose works were selected for “On The Road” and all the entrants who submitted work. I would also like to thank PhotoPlace for inviting me to be the juror for this year exhibition. I truly enjoyed seeing what people are doing and thank you for the experience.
