OPEN CALL FOR ENTRIES
From June of 1859, when Charles Leander Weed exposed the first photograph ever made in Yosemite Valley; through Carleton Watkins, Eadweard Muybridge, and other early practitioners; to Ansel Adams’ “century” with all its followers — John Sexton, Alan Ross, et al — to the humor and magic of Ted Orland and Jerry Uelsmann; followed by, but certainly not ending with, the color photographs by Charles Cramer, William Neill, and the rest of you; Yosemite has probably been the subject of more fine pictures than just about any place on earth (with apologies for the exaggeration). Together, these images have recreated moods, realities, and magical experiences for more than 150 years.
To celebrate this photographic legacy, Viewpoint Photographic Art Center will host a major photographic exhibit in April 2019. Entitled Yosemite: Grand Gesture of the Range of Light, the exhibit will feature a juried selection of photographs made within the boundaries or spiritual reaches of Yosemite National Park.
The exhibit is open to all photographers and all photographic techniques. If you have made photographs in or around Yosemite, Viewpoint encourages you to submit your favorite images.
1 entry: $25 2-3 entries: $40 4-6 entries: $55
Best of Show: $300 Second Place: $200 Third Place: $100
