Ron Cowie On Jurying Every important thing that can be done in photography has been done in the first 100 years of it’s invention. There are very few, if any, frontiers in the field. That said, it is wonderful to see images made with zest and intelligence. Images which challenge, ask as well as answer questions, lean towards mystery and are made with skill hold my attention the most. I can’t tell you what that looks like, only when I see it.
