Our juror for Flora is Kate Breakey. Kate Breakey is known for her large-scale, hand-colored photographs, which often feature luminous representations of birds, flowers, animals, and insects. Beginning with a silver photographic image, she paints over this with many transparent layers of oil, melding together different media. Breakey also creates works with the simple outlines of photograms—invented by William Fox Talbot in the 1830s—and ones that relate to 19th-century botanist Anna Atkins’ cyanotypes and Imogen Cunningham’s and Edward Weston’s 1920s plant and shell photographs.
35-40 images will be selected for exhibition. Selected images must be matted and framed up to 20” x 24” to professional standards, white mat with simple black metal or wood frame unless prior approval has been obtained.
The SE Center for Photography will mat & frame your images at no charge, using our selection of 11×14, 16×20, & 20×24 black, metal frames with white, archival mats and conservation clear glass for the exhibitions assuming it will fit one of our standard mats.
