Even the most mundane human activity leaves evidence of its existence. Old shopping lists, a once-loved stuffed animal, fragments of an old wedding dress, all speak of the passage of time. Larger human activities leave boarded-up storefronts, crumbling infrastructure. No matter the scale, they all leave a nostalgic hint of an irretrievable past and, ultimately, of our mortality.
For this exhibition, we seek images that hint of humans come and gone by the traces left behind.

We are very pleased that Jeff Curto will be the juror Traces. He will select up to 35 images for exhibition in our Middlebury, Vermont gallery and another 40 images for our Online Gallery. All 75 images will be reproduced in the exhibition catalog and remain permanently on our website, with links to photographer’s URL.

To further reward excellence, we are offering $500 to the Juror’s Award recipient, and $250 to the Director’s Award recipient.
