Curating IMAGES 2024

By Greig Cranna, Joe Jurson, and Morgan Post

There are many factors at play when a group comes together to judge the work of others. Each judge brings a personaI vision, baked-in likes and dislikes, and in this case their own work as a baseline. But, you have to go into this exercise believing every person entering a contest has invested time, resources and energy and believes in what they’re doing. As a judge you owe everyone a reasoned look and  an attempt at sidelining your biases.

 

This show’s judges varied greatly in their backgrounds and connection to photography, but all shared a deep and lengthy involvement in, and love of, the world of photography. Remarkably,  despite disparate backgrounds, opinions, and with little wrangling, they easily reached consensus.

 

In this particular case the end was more than just awarding  prizes to deserving photographers. Ultimately a show would be hung, so the judges were also viewing everything with an eye to how they would coalesce as a show.

 

The result is a collection of worthy winners and honorable mentions, but more importantly, a show with a wonderfully diverse set of personal visions that work together.

This exhibition has been thoughtfully curated to create a cohesive and compelling viewing experience, but please note that the visual layout will vary depending on your browser and monitor size.
