Arlene Stanger says, "More than just documenting a scene, I love how a pictorialist photograph conveys an atmosphere of suggestion, mystery and unanswered questions. 

Viewers tend to get lost in their own interpretation of the image based on past experiences and may find answers to some of those questions.  Light, one of the most important qualities I look for in subject matter, greatly contributes to the mystical aura of a pictorialist photograph.

I am originally from Michigan but have lived in California, Massachusetts, Germany and Illinois.  I currently live in Baileys Harbor, WI. 

While I am largely self taught, I have taken independent photography courses while in Illinois where I had a darkroom in my basement.  I have taken a number of photography courses at the Peninsula School of Art in Fish Creek, WI and have taken a photographic workshop in Ireland.  I switched to a digital camera when that became available but have since gone back to film with a medium format Holga camera.  I also now heavily rely on my iPhone camera.

HIGHLIGHTS:

- Exhibited in the 4th International Biennial of Fine Art & Documentary Photography in Berlin, Germany in 2016 as the winner in the Nature/Flower category of the 7th edition of the Julia Margaret Cameron Award for Women Photographers and  finalist in the Landscape and Fine Art categories in the 8th edition.

- As the winner in the Fashion category of the 11th edition of the Julia Margaret Cameron Award for Women Photographers, I will be exhibiting at the 5th International Biennial of Fine Art & Documentary Photography in Barcelona, Spain in October 2018.  I was also a finalist in the People category and received Honorable Mentions in the Landscape and Fine Art categories.

- I have been published in Black & White magazine's Special Contest Issues in 2016, 2017, and 2018."

PLANT LIFE by Carole Glauber
(Click on image for larger view)

Carole Glauber says of her series, 'The Dark Side of Hawaii', "This series reflects my interest in observing and capturing the light at night and manifests my experience in street photography.

Night light creates different effects that echo my attachment to soft focused photographs reminiscent of the Pictorial era in our photographic history, including the invention of the Autochrome, an early 20th century color process using glass plates coated with microscopic grains of potato starch and color dyes. In this series, the parameters of available light alter the product from its daytime vision, but still maintains the reality of what I saw.

Also, by using my cell phone camera, I experience a high level of spontaneity and I enjoy the aura of mystery and the ominous sensation that can result from this process. Even the darkness—what is concealed, hidden, unexplained— needs our light.

I am a long-time photographer with experience in many realms. I am probably one of the few photographers who is also a published photo historian, a confluence that influences the photographs I make. In recent years, I was a finalist for the Julia Margaret Cameron Award, and received honorable mentions at the Soho Photo Gallery International Krappy Kamera Competition and the Lightbox Photo Gallery while also exhibiting my work at ValidFoto Gallery in Barcelona, PH21 Gallery in Budapest, and the Center for Fine Art Photography, Blue Sky Gallery, ASmith Gallery, RayKo Photo Center, and PhotoPlace Gallery in the United States.

I am the recipient of the Peter E. Palmquist Photographic History Research Fellowship, a Winterthur Museum Fellowship, an Oregon Humanities Research Fellowship and grants from the National Coalition of Independent Scholars, Regional Arts and Culture Council, and Northwest Womens History Project. My book about the Pictorialist photographer and Photo-Secession member, Myra Albert Wiggins, and many published articles reflect my research in early women photographers, along with the occasional interview and book review."

MOTHER i by Chelle Delaney
HONORABLE MENTION
(Click on image for larger view)

Chelle Delaney says, "These images are an exploration of Rachelle Clemons, my deceased mother's identity in portraits, one an oil painting by Leonebel Jacobs
(1883-1967) painted when my mother was in her 30s and the other a photograph taken by me some 30 years later when she was in her late 60s. When I was a small child, I saw the painted image as what my mother looked like.

When I took her picture as an adult, I saw a very different person from the one who
was hanging on the wall in paint. While it is the melding of two different mediums, it is also an examination of how and what we know from a representation at a moment in time and whether one piece of art is the more revelatory in its essence because one knew or had the most intimate
knowledge of a person at a particular moment in time. Of course then we have to ask, what does knowledge mean when it comes to art.

While I am jealous of Jacobs' adroit painterly brush strokes, each of us were portraying a different woman at
very different times. So what was the essence of my mother’s soul?  When I came back to these images, what I
saw most powerfully in both was her eyes, which always looked through time and into my soul."

Chelle Delaney graduated from the University of South Carolina where she studied English Literature. She later attended the School of Visual Arts and
the Southwest School of Arts in San Antonio, Texas, to study photography. Her interest in photography grew out of her
work as a print reporter and editor.

BUONCONVENTO #1 by Collins Walker
(Click on image for larger view)


Collins Walker says, "My photomontages are like paintings. The actual setting of a picture looks far different from the final tableau represented in one of my works.

One aspect, of course has to with perspective.  Photomontage can add an element of cubism to photography.  But it can also add the element of time.  Nothing stays the same long in our world.  Clouds pass, tides fluctuate, winds reshape the dunes.  Trees sway, take on new colors, then lose their leaves.  And of course the light is always changing.

My experiments with photomontage go back over 30 years.  They are comprised of sometimes hundreds of individual photographs.  I often say that one can take an hour to shoot but months to put together into a coherent image.  These completed artworks can be quite large and impactful.  Their depth and texture can be hard to appreciate in a small format.  I have just completed a large group of photomontages that I am calling "The National Park Series" - some of which are represented here."

A life-long artist and photographer, Collins Walker originally hailed from South Carolina.  During college he spent a great deal of time in the Western United States, working two summers in Yellowstone National Park, and a winter skiing in Heavenly Valley, California. 

He also spent a summer talking an extensive film production class at UCLA.  After graduating from the University of South Carolina, Walker went immediately to Los Angeles and worked in film production and post-production for 40 years. 

During that time Walker continued to study art and photography, taking classes at Otis-Parsons and UCLA Extension.  He also continued to produce his own artwork.  In 1984 he married Keven Barrett, an elementary art educator.  Together they raised two children and kept in touch with the Los Angeles art scene.  Now retired from film production Walker is focusing his energies on his first artistic love, photomontage.

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS:

Collins Walker’s experiments with photomontage go back decades.  They explore a world between photography and painting.  Originally popularized by artist David Hockney, these artworks are comprised of sometimes hundreds of individual pictures arranged into a cohesive tableau.  Each picture is a unique achievement, like a painting.

EDUCATION AND RELEVANT EXPERIENCE:

Professional film experience in Hollywood working for such companies as Efilm/Deluxe Laboratories, Sony Columbia Tri-Star, Hammer Creative and Intralink.

Photography under Don Wooley, Steve Cohen, Linda Troller and Van Ditthavong.

Art and Painting under Florence Shennan, Nell Lafaye and Rachel Rosenthal.

Mr. Walker’s photomontages are held in the collections of private patrons in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Berkley, San Diego, Atlanta and Jacksonville Florida.


Buonconvento #1 - Italy’s Buonconvento is one of the most idyllic spots in Tuscany.  A mid-summer thunderstorm rolled through the valley and I caught the elements for this scene out of the window of our room at the bed and breakfast where we were staying.

GOODYEAR BLIMP by Collins Walker
(Click on image for larger view)

Goodyear Blimp - This picture confuses many people at first.  How did you get two Goodyear Blimps? they wonder.  Of course there was only one blimp when I started shooting the tableau.  But the wind shifted and the blimp swung around to another position on the pole to which it was tethered.  I shot it in that position as well.  When I started to build the photomontage of a family about to go on a blimp ride it just seemed that two Goodyear Blimps were better than one.

YOSEMITE SAPLING by Collins Walker
(Click on image for larger view)

Yosemite Sapling - I asked my friend, fellow photographer, former rock climber and current Yosemite resident, Chris Falkenstein when was the best time to visit the park.  He said, “Today!”  So I guess we were lucky enough to hit it just right.  I’ve always said that it’s hard to take a bad picture in Yosemite, as this montage will attest.

RELATIONSHIP ISSUES by Diane Kaye
FIRST PLACE
(Click on image for larger view)

Curator Bob Weil says, "I was intrigued about a number of elements in this image. The shadowy masculine presence in the middle distance with a bit of a swagger to his stance, the reclining female nude in the foreground with the crease running down the center of her body (as if she is internally divided about her next move), and the serene, even blissful look on her face that belied any concern about may happen next.

The background is a bit surreal and suggests a dream (is she subject or object?), and the textures and creases separate as much as they connect.

You can imagine any number of narratives to support what is happening in the scene – happy dreamer / imagined lover (but which is which), a moment before the rendezvous or minutes after, or unrequited attention (the man, after all, has his back to our heroine)? Works of art challenge and tantalize, and this collage accomplishes that and stays with you.
 
As part of the process of recognizing competition winners, I like to invite the artist to say something about the backstory underlying the artwork, and to share a bit of technical journey they took in creating the piece (if they’re willing to share this information).

Here is what Diane Kaye had to say about her inspiration in creating the piece:  “Her software matched her up with a handsome guy.  One night he came to dinner, but excused himself to go have a cigarette.  Hoping to seduce him, she dipped into the water.  Suddenly she had a psychic-intuitive vision of him far away, moving away, and she felt like hopelessly staying there in the deep pond, sinking.”
 
And because so many of us enter competitions to see if we can win, we also want very much to see how others achieve  their objectives in the hermetically sealed worlds they create, I like to ask a bit about technique. Because who wouldn’t like to know a bit about another artist’s creative process?

Here is what Diane has to say on this front:  “I searched in my archives for two existing 35mm negatives which would tell a story, and rather than totally overlap them, as I’d previously done, I trimmed most of the sprockets off the one and overlapped them partially, careful to keep the man in a dreamlike illusion, a smaller scale, suggesting further away than the girl. 

The cut edge is the 'water level.'  I held them together in a 4x5 glass negative carrier.”

Addional Review by curator Sandrine Hermand-Grisel:
"This image is really stunning!
It reminded me actually of the surrealist movement in France and the work of Man Ray and Lee Miller. Beautiful composition! I love it, great work!

Diane Kaye says, "I fell passionately in love with photography one night in a darkroom class back in the film days, and that energy remains alive these many years later.  Pictorialism represents, for me, one of the important ways I have of getting away from literal reality while using the most literal tool, the basic camera.  I envy the fact that painters can wake up in the morning and paint their dreams, and that particular yearning pushes me to strive as far as I dare to make some wonderful non-literal sense with my work, whichever particular way I decide to plan my little escape from reality.  Sometimes, as is the case with these 3 images, I like to explore what I can do with film and the simplest of escape techniques.

TO HAVE AND HAVE NOT by Ellen Jantzen
SECOND PLACE
(Click on image for larger view)

Curator Bob Weil says, "Ellen Jantzen's "To Have and Have Not" is stunning in its simplicity, and despite the fact that a fire rages in the center of the scene, it is a beautiful image that conjures up magic and the arrival of a thunderbolt as much as it does immolation and destruction.

In fact, it could be that we are witnessing some sort of sacrifice to the gods, based on the aureole with which the artist encircles the flames."

Ellen Jantzen says, "These pieces are from my series “Unity of Time and Place”
    
Some say, all time exists at once; the indefinite continued progress of existence and events in the past, present, and future are regarded as a whole. As     always, I am vastly interested in reality... so this cohesion is mesmerizing to me.
After spending the last several years immersed in the past I am ready to embrace the future. But as I set out, the past is with me, transformed. All the losses are still there but there is a brightness forming that allows me to see the entirety, the unity of time and place.

I don’t consider myself a "photographer" but an image-maker, as I create work that bridges the world of photography, prints and collage. As digital cameras began producing excellent resolution, I found my perfect medium. It was a true confluence of technical advancements and creative desire that culminated in my current explorations in photo-inspired art using both a camera to capture imagery and a computer to alter, combine and manipulate the pieces.

I was awarded “Special Photographer of The Year” in the 2017 International Photography Awards.

I was 1st place winner in the 2017 International Photography Awards, Digitally Enhanced Category

I was one of 15 women photographers chosen to receive the Julia Margaret Cameron Award!!!  This is quite a distinction in the photography world honoring women photographers!!!

Along with the honor, I participated in the Berlin Biennial that took place in October 2016.

I was also awarded First Place (Fine Art, Special Effects Category) in the Moscow International Foto Awards, 2016 and First Prize, Fine Art in the prestigious PX3, Prix de la Photographie Paris for my series "Transplanting Reality; Transcending Nature""

BED LIGHT by Eva Weiss
(Click on image for larger view)


Eva Weiss says, "The work represented in this entry are portraits. Portraits of Places is a body of work I will always be working on. As I consider myself to be primarily a portraitist, I approach my landscapes in the same manner.  I want to describe a place in the same way I would a face or a character. It’s a portrait. A portrait of place."

Eva Weiss is an internationally exhibited and published fine art photographer. Her original images have often been
described as classical, theatrical, and dreamlike. 

Eva grew up in Philadelphia and received her BFA from Rochester Institute of Technology in 1971. 

Eva's work has been exhibited and published internationally since 1972. She received a Creative Arts Program Services
Grant in 1976. Her creative collaboration with Split Britches performance troupe - Peggy Shaw - Lois Weaver - Deb
Margolin-  has been exhibited extensively in NYC, Amsterdam, and London. 1984- 2015

A complete body of her work on Lois Weaver including the back and front cover appears in the definitive book on the artist. The Only Way Home is Through the Show. It includes images from a thirty five year photographic collaboration with performance artist, writer, and director Lois Weaver.

CACIA AND CRYSTALS by Henry Driftwood
(Click on image for larger view)

Henry Driftwood says, "I've always been impressed with what happens when Nature interplays with the printed image.

Discovering some strange leftover or forgotten image on the ground is like a detective story- 
how did the image end up left out in the open? What happened to it since then? Rain, snow, sun, fire? Wonderful stories, and if the image itself is inticing, all the more mysterious as to why it was left alone... "

Henry Driftwood is a photographer with a background in fine art. He has exhibited  mainly in shows in the southern California area. An uprooted Southerner with a degree in art from the USM, he has continued to adapt to the beautiful dry California air.

THE UNRAVELING by Jane Schultz
HONORABLE MENTION
(Click on image for larger view)

Jane Schultz says, "As a self-taught photographer and artist, over recent years, I have immersed my passions into a newer art movement, visual art created almost exclusively using mobile devices.

I would describe my images as expressive or emotive, many with an element of the abstract. I use a lot of blending and distortion techniques. Unusual or disproportioned body shapes can be unsettling, and draw the eye. I also like to shoot in slow shutter, which gives an innate distortion to the capture. I also use collage work and blending and painting techniques to "showcase" distorted facial elements.

I could never have imagined where mobile artistry has taken me or the creative possibilities it has provided. Staying pure to mobile pushes me to produce a higher level image, to create with less to start with and from within. The ability to share both within a community and publicly in an instant is revolutionary and fundamental to the mobile art movement."

Jane Schultz is an award winning mobile artist from Pennsylvania, USA. Her work embodies a visual illustration of art created from mobile devices which manifest as expressive or emotive images many with an element of the abstract. Jane's images have been exhibited in museums, art centers, and galleries on an international basis, including in Florence, Rome, and Paris, and featured in numerous publications for photography and mobile artistry.

As NEM Artist, she curates the main submissions for the New Era Museum and, additionally, administers @ig_artistry and Edit from the Soul, Instagram and Facebook groups which promote originality, creativity, and emotive art.

SEAWEED SQUARE by Karen Hochman Brown
(Click on image for larger view)

Karen Hochman Brown says, "My kaleidoscopic fascination goes back to my childhood days. I take a simple tube of cardboard and mirror, looking with one eye while closing the other. All is reflected light; the world goes away.

Computer software and hardware now replace my toy. I sit with a stylus and keyboard, watching the show unfold as I turn, layer, and spin reflections of my photographs. Not restricted to a flat mirror, I romp through polar space, fiddle with fractals, and play in the realm of infinite images.

I get great satisfaction spinning my digital kaleidoscope, creating each of the bits of the piece as a whole. But the real fun is weaving the many kaleidoscopic layers of my art into a single image. The finished piece should hold a cohesive energy and balance. Shading each layer creates depth. I want the viewer to be drawn into the singular world encased in the artwork."

Karen Hochman Brown [American, b.1958] is a Los Angeles-based nature photographer using software to manipulate her images into multi-layered kaleidoscopic constructs.

Her work is sensitive to the inherent beauty of the subjects as she strives to magnify that quality through focus and repetition. The resulting geometric forms resonate in harmony and discord, creating unique energies.

She studied art at Pitzer College, California College of Art and Art Center College of Design, but self-developed her processes through experimentation, relying heavily on skills learned as a graphic designer. Inspirations include Georgia O’Keeffe, Piet Mondrian, Frank Stella and the Geometric Abstraction movement.

Hochman Brown's work has been shown mainly in California and New York. In addition to the kaleidoscopic art, she works in digital painting and animation techniques.

ATCHAFALAYA by Kathryn Dunlevie
(Click on image for larger view)

Kathryn Dunlevie says of her series, 'MISTICK KREWES', "In New Orleans in 1857 a newly formed secret society, the Mistick Krewe of Comus, began the tradition of celebrating Mardi Gras with a torch-lit procession of extravagantly designed floats.

​My series "​Mistick Krewes​"​ is an homage to the rich jumble of that city’s overlapping cultures and the still perceptible aura of its tempestuous history. Since its founding in 1718, New Orleans’ cultural, political and natural landscapes have been continually invaded and eroded, bought and sold, enriched and transformed.

A visitor to New Orleans might pass through districts, buildings and gardens that exhibit centuries of intertwining Native American, Spanish, French, African​ ​and American influences. City streets are named for Greek muses, native tribes and 18th-century French nobility. Surrounding swamplands are swallowed by encroaching gulf waters.

The atmosphere is charged with an air of mystery, a strange sense of desire, and a whiff of something hazily remembered, beckoning from just around the next corner. It is a place where history is revered and where it can sometimes be ‘mistickally’ re-experienced.

In these works I am combining my photographs with images from the internet, print media and old photo albums. Adding layer upon layer, revisiting each composition again and again, I am working toward scenes that compel even as they may mislead.

Interweaving elements from nature, history and contemporary culture conjures up landscapes inhabited by plants, wildlife, and otherworldly beings, evoking lost cultures and the Mardi Gras costumes that celebrate them."

Kathryn Dunlevie is a photography-based artist whose work has been exhibited throughout the U.S. and internationally. Cathy Kimball, Executive Director of the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art, writes of Dunlevie’s work:

"​Through brilliant compositional detail and manipulation, she creates disconcerting, surprising, inexplicable spaces and scenarios – swimming pools that have many points of entry, cloisters with multiple arched domes, streetscapes that elude mapmakers, and interior settings that are almost, but not quite, right.​"​

​Dunlevie has always been intrigued by spatial and temporal inconsistencies, and by each individual’s particular and shifting sense of reality. She fragments, reassembles and layers photographs to suggest the intrusion of alternate worlds. Her photographs of everyday images are transformed into compositions that hint at mysterious underlying structures and intangible extra dimensions.

Born on the east coast, Dunlevie lived in six different states by the time she was 12, and in Paraguay when she was 16. She has a B.A. in fine arts from Rice University, and studied art history and film at the University of Paris, painting at California College of the Arts, and photography in Madrid. She lives in Palo Alto.

Marcie Rich says, "March 2017. I moved from Southern California to Northern California after 26 years an Angeleno. I gave no thought to how difficult such a move might be. The following photos Migraine, Clown and Dummy, were taken three months after moving.

Lately I’m thinking this could be the start of my midlife crisis."

Marcie is currently working on a series of self-portraits.
