ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Newspace Center for Photography is pleased to announce our 9th Annual Juried Exhibition. This year’s exhibition was juried by Sarah Stolfa, Executive Director of the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center. From over 225 entries, she has selected 30 photographers to exhibit in the Newspace gallery this month. Photographers from all over the country and the world enter the Newspace Juried Exhibition each year. The show is an opportunity to see compelling work from a broad range of national and international talent, drawn together by a juror with a fine-tuned eye for selecting great work.
Photography’s ability to transform a specific detail of the world into a form of poetics filled with allegory and metaphor is the beauty of the medium. When a picture’s form and content create an image that invites us to look past it’s surface, ask more questions and evoke an unnamed emotion rather than attempt to answer some false idea of objective truth, that is when it’s an image worth stopping to look at. It’s a challenge to the artist to make new pictures in a world where an estimated 1.3 billion images are created a day. Cheers to these new pictures for giving us a reason to stop and look.
