Whether it’s a dream or a nightmare, our night time visions make for wonderful imagery. “Dreams are a creation of images, ideas, sensations and emotions that occur in our conscious and subconscious mind. They can be the manifestation of our aspirations, goals, andfears both realistic and fantastic.”
I am thrilled to be the juror for The Center of Fine Art Photography’s call for entry on Dreams. I am a big fan of this organization, and of Hamidah Glasgow, it’s very capable director. Hamidah and I have had several conversations about how best to help and support emerging photographers and it’s very evident that the goal of this organization is to do everything in it’s power to help photographers gain exposure, experience, and education. Founded in 2004, The Center for Fine Art Photography is a nonprofit organization supported by donations, grants, and memberships. With offices, classrooms, and two galleries in Fort Collins, Colorado, the Center currently has more than 1,300 members representing 33 countries worldwide.
The due date is August 9th, with the exhibition opening on December 2nd and running through January 7th.
