I recently had the honor of being the juror for an exhibition held at the Center for Fine Art Photography called People, Places, Things: Art Found in Everyday Life. I was extremely impressed by the quality of the work and it’s a pleasure to share this link to the gallery of images that I chose for exhibition: https://www.c4fap.org/index.htm The gallery is on the right side, click on “view exhibit online.”
In addition, the Center for Fine Art Photography is now accepting entries for their 2006 International Show. The deadline for online entries is September 26, 2006.
The juror for the show is Philip Brookman, Senior Curator of Photography and Media Arts for The Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington DC.
The Corcoran is, in my opinion, one of the finest art galleries in the world.
Approximately 40 works from the Center’s gallery exhibition will be selected for a post-exhibition traveling show to the Denver International Airport’s Main Gallery, February 25 through May 21, 2007
There are a number of other awards, including features in Artists’ ShowCase, an eight-page insert in CameraArts magazine, and cash prizes.

Winners were recently chosen for Image06, a photography competition organized annually by the New York chapter of the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP). The contest had two main categories, one for professional photographers and one for students.
I think that the images chosen showcase a wide range of great work, and I highly recommend a visit to the website. The Image ’06 gallery show will run from Monday, June 19th through Saturday June 24th, 2006 at the Thomas Werner Gallery.

In the Professional category, top honors went to Charlotte Oestervang. Interestingly, Oestervang was last year’s winner in the student category. A native of Denmark, in 2000 she earned a bachelor’s degree in fine-art photography from the Academy of Performing Arts, Film and Television in Prague, Czech Republic. She has been a freelance photographer since 2001. Last year, she studied documentary photography at the International Center of Photography in New York City. This fall, she plans to move to Kabul, Afghanistan, to make in-depth stories. You can see more of her work at https://www.oestervang.dk
This year’s top prize in the Student category went to Amy Stein.
A New York City resident and newly minted MFA from the School of
Visual Arts, Stein is currently working on a photo series called
“Stranded,” portraits of people stranded on the side of the road.
“To make these images, I basically drive various US highways
looking for broken down vehicles,” she said. Her portfolio is
viewable at https://www.amysteinphoto.com

(Note: Photographers were allowed to submit multiple images,
which were identified only by a number during the judging. Thus,
it was possible for one photographer to win awards for several
photographs. Independently, each Judges’ Choice reflected the top
pick of a single judge.)

professional perspectives and artistic interests. They were:
* Klitos Teklos, Art Director, Surface magazine
* James K. Colton, Photography Editor, Sports Illustrated
* Kiana Malekzadeh, Gallerist, Kiana Malekzadeh Gallery
* Jeff Kopay, Art Director, Ogilvy
