This year our theme is “Enigma”.  As photographers, can we make ourselves comfortable with ambiguity or lack of representational form?  Is there a way to make a photograph that is both realistic and enigmatic?  Upstream would like to elicit photography that speaks to this theme. Photographs need not be abstract.  We are looking for answers in all forms of photography.  Our juror, Dave Shelley, will be looking for creativity in both literal and symbolic interpretations of this idea Exhibition will be held at Upstream Gallery, Hastings-on-Hudson, New York, February 2, 2023, to February 26, 2023.

Guest Juror: Our guest juror DAVE SHELLEY is a co-founder of Photoville–a New York-based non-profit organization that works to promote a wider understanding and increased access to the art of photography for all. Our guest juror will also select Best of Show and three Honorable Mentions.

As both Individuals and communities we sometimes need to search inside ourselves for new purpose and meaning in our lives.  What we thought was solid is not and we suddenly find ourselves struggling to adjust to changed circumstances in many spheres.  We find ourselves searching for new ways to cope with and understand our existence.

The gallery is a well-known, beautiful venue only 20 minutes from Manhattan in Hastings on Hudson NY.  The exhibit will hang from January 5th to January 29th with an opening reception Sunday January 8th, 2023.
