Please join us, Wednesday, October 17th, 2012 from 5:00p to 8:00p for the opening reception of Light, the third annual juried photo exhibition in partnership with Filter Photo Festival at David Weinberg Photography 300 West Superior St, Suite 203 (Franklin and Superior Streets) River North Chicago. Light is a featured event at the week long 2012 Filter Photo Festival.
When we decided to partner with Filter Photo Festival and put on the “Light” Exhibition we never imagined the number of solid entries there
would be. With a field of over 320 photographers we culled through over 1100 photographs. We had the challenging task of narrowing down the group of talented individuals and ended up with 25 beautiful pieces made by 14 photographers from across the United States. As jurors for this competition Dave and I were searching for fresh unique works that utilized light itself or the absence of it to shape, highlight and expose one’s interests in the world around them. Yet light is only one of many elements in photography that comes together to make a great photograph let alone a great series. Looking beyond the quality of light that initially drew us to each image, we found the best works allowed us to escape to another world or would lead us to that ambiguous place where there were more questions than answers. We are very excited and pleased with the final result for the show and are looking forward to exhibiting the pieces in the gallery. We’d like to thank Filter Photo Festival for extending us the amazing opportunity to jury this annual photo competition.
