Juried Photography Exhibition: THE DARK SIDE NIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY
Submission Deadline: Wednesday, October 5, 2011
OPENING NIGHT RECEPTION: SATURDAY, OCTOBER 22, 2011 7:30 - 10:30pm
1650 Gallery is hosting the juried photography exhibition THE DARK SIDE: NIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY
The jazzy neon glow of a motel sign... the silver hush of a moonlit landscape... the hollow loneliness of deserted city street lamps... the raucous revelry of a nightclub at midnight.... NIGHT holds a special place in the heart of photography. The geometry of light and shadow creates an interplay of mystery, possibility, and the foreboding that accompanies paths of the unknown.
This October, as Halloween looms large on the horizon, 1650 invites you to visit THE DARK SIDE: A Juried Exhibit of Night Photography. Photographic greats such as Brassai, George Tice, Peter Hujar, Weegee and Robert Brook are just a few examples of those who have contributed great works in the genre of night photography. This month, at 1650, it is your turn.
Juror: Joshua Hess http://www.joshuahessdp.com/ Joshua Hess is a Swiss born cinematographer and still photographer based in Los Angeles. He is currently working on a large scale stills project of night photography.
