‘Texture’ with curator Sandrine Hermand-Grisel

L.A. Photo Curator

Entry Deadline: Mar. 5

123 Jones Ave.
Los Angeles,, CA 90068


In Sandrine’s words, “As a photographer, I find myself drawn to the tactile quality of the surface of an image…this could be visual, the scratched lines on the worn clear plastic walls of a bus shelter or the way light hits the coarse sand on the beach or the rough surface of an old wooden barn straight out of a Wright Morris photograph.

It could also be a texture applied to the surface of an image, not only like a filter used in photoshop or instagram, but also the way encaustic is used on a print or paint or even an overlay of platinum over gum bichromate or even the use of collodion on glass or tin to bring us from the present into the 1850s or the even the matte quality of a carbon print. Or texture could refer to the essence of something, the feel of something, the characteristic quality of something…the mood laid over the scene by a storm or the moon or the streetlights at night…something comes out of the dusky blackness and I feel subdued or strong or inspired.

Texture, the possibilities are endless. All capture types and photographic processes are eligible for this competition.”
