Jurors’ Statement

Ansel Adams famously declared, “you don’t take a photograph, you make it.” We make choices each time we press the shutter. The strongest photographers have always been those who understood their choices and could intuit which variables to hold tightly and which to set wandering. This philosophy is central to my approach to photography as an image-maker, curator, and publisher of Don’t Take Pictures.

 

Celebrating the Creative Process is an open call, giving artists free range to explore the myriad choices that go into the making of a considered photograph. When jurying this exhibition, I sought works that embraced the idea of photographing with intention and of carefully considering the elements of each image. This exhibition contains imagery in which the photographer meticulously transformed an idea in their mind into a final print. Some of these photographs reflect careful planning. Others rely on choices made in the moment when light, composition, and movement came together for one fraction of a second, just long enough for a photographer with carefully honed instincts to frame and record. Still others were created through the art of post-production, when a group of photographs are transformed into something new and magical through composite imagery. Each is a photograph that is made and not taken, and reflects deliberate choices that make it more than the sum of its parts.
