What makes a photograph exceptional? As Susan Sontag wrote "The activity of seeing, recorded and aided by cameras, is "photographic seeing." This is what Edward Weston was doing when he said "I have been photographing our toilet, that glossy enamel receptacle of extraordinary beauty..."  This call for photography challenges us to see ithe extraordinary in the everyday or vice versa. The theme can be reflected in any lens-based imagery including street photography, still life, landscape, people, B+W or color and constructed photography.  Our juror, Dave Shelley, will be looking for creativity in interpretations of this idea.  Exhibition will be held at Upstream Gallery, Hastings-on-Hudson, New York, February 1, 2024, to February 25, 2024.

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.
