The 2016 INPrint Photographers
INPrint was our call for entries that put the focus on the final product of the photographers vision, the photographic print or object, not the jpeg on the screen.
A photograph may start with an idea, a click of the shutter, but the art of the photographer cannot be fully appreciated until it is in our physical presence.
This call was a learning experience for us and for many of the participants. Our feeling that nothing compares to seeing the photographic print in person proved to be true. Some images that caught our attention when seeing them on the web, fell flat when viewing them in person, while some that may have been overlooked on a computer were stunning to view in person. This call caused many photographers to work outside of their usual workflow. Thinking about different ways of presentation and printing smaller became a creative exercise for some.
Thank you to all the photographers that participated. We know the time, cost and effort that goes into submitting your work.
Thank you to Catherine Couturier of the Catherine Couturier Gallery for being our guest juror. Thank you to our sponsors Adore Noir, Artisan Craftsman Books, Hahnemühle , andLuna Press for your support.
