SE Center for Photograhy
Entry Deadline: Jul. 5
“The way I have always looked at it is the world is in color. And there’s nothing we can do about that.” – William Eggleston
When practicing analogue or digital photography, one of first and primary aesthetic decision a photographer must make is whether to produce images in monochromatic black & white or color. The photographer must ask him/herself the fundamental question – Would the subject matter, theme, lighting, and concept of the photograph be better served in black and white or color? Perhaps, Mr. Eggleston is on to something – because the world is in color, it only makes sense to photograph the world the way it is – in color.
Our juror for Light is Richard McCabe. Richard McCabe was born in Mildenhall, England and grew up in the American South. He received an MFA in Studio Art from Florida State University in 1998. That same year he received a fellowship to the American Photography Institute, National Graduate Seminar at New York University. Mr. McCabe is the Curator of Photography at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans, Louisiana.
35-40 selected images will hang in the SE Center’s main gallery space for approximately one month.
