Childhood Call for Entries - PhotoPlace Gallery

Deadline: October 14, 2019
Entry fee: 5 images – $39, each additional image – $6
Prizes: participation in the exhibition, publication in the catalogue

Children are not like us. They are beings apart: impenetrable, unapproachable. They inhabit not our world but a world we have lost and can never recover. We do not remember childhood — we imagine it. We search for it, in vain, through layers of obscuring dust, and recover some bedraggled shreds of what we think it was.” — Penelope Lively, Moon Tiger

We are interested in seeing images that reflect memories of childhood, whether through allusion to your own experience, or your current experience with a child. All capture and processing methods are welcome.

We are very pleased that Anne Berry will curate this exhibit. She will select up to 35 images for exhibition in the Middlebury, Vermont gallery, and another 35 images for the Online gallery. All 70 images will appear in the exhibit catalog. While the Gallery exhibit is open, the Online selections will be projected in a continuous loop in the gallery.

About the Juror

“My work is about the transitory nature of the physical world and the enchantment and power of the natural world, often reflected through the eyes of animals or children. Whether photographing people or animals, I capture what they wish to give, not what I construct. A sense of myth, ritual and mystery binds these images together. I’m drawn to wilderness places, children and animals. I’m influenced by literature, especially by the Romantic poets, T.S. Eliot, and Flannery O’Connor. My photographs are about the mystery that lies beneath the mundane.”

Anne Berry is an artist from Atlanta, Georgia. She is best known for photographs of children and animals that capture the enchantment and power of the natural world.

She earned an MA in literature from The University of Georgia and a BA in art and English from Sweet Briar College. In 2013 and 2014 Critical Mass included her work in their Top 50 Portfolios.

Anne has had solo exhibitions at the Centre for Visual and Performing Arts in Newnan, GA, The Lamar Dodd Art Center in LaGrange, GA and The Rankin Arts Center in Columbus, GA. She has exhibited nationally and internationally, including The Fox Talbot Museum in Lacock, England, SCAN Tarragona in Spain, The Museum of Photographic Arts in San Diego, and the Ogden Museum of Southern Arts in New Orleans.

Entry Fee

$39 for up to 5 images, $6 each additional image.

About Us

PhotoPlace Gallery offers monthly, juried photographic exhibitions to photographers worldwide, each with a new topic and internationally recognized juror. Juror gallery selections are exhibited in our physical gallery in Middlebury, Vermont.

We encourage creative interpretation of our themes. Images do need to relate to the theme, but they need not be entirely literal.
