Instructions for Exhibitors

1650 Gallery is hosting the juried photography exhibition

The beauty of light never fails to inspire. It comes in many colors and styles, from the soft monochrome palette of the pre-dawn to the raging intensity of Times Square at midnight. Light can dazzle, light can seduce; light can be so intoxicating many spend hours attempting to capture its essence inside a tiny light-tight box otherwise known as a "camera". Studious professional photo-geek Ansel Adams identified 10 distinct "zones" of light from pitch black to pure light in an attempt to tame the photo beast; moreover, within those 10 zones of light and shadow he mapped the keys to the photographic universe. In his wake countless lives have been dedicated to the artistic pursuit of these 10 expressions of luminosity.

Whether the photographer chooses color or black and white, the expression and compression of the wonder of light from our daily world onto a 2D piece of paper in a compelling way remains both the Nirvana and the great white whale of all photographers past, present and future. That's why they call it 'the shining'; once you see the beauty of light and the power of shadow, it communicates to the core of one's being. It cannot be ignored and you can not look away. This month at 1650 the power of light compels you as we celebrate the core and essence of photography itself! Join with us as we go out of the darkness and into the light the with a timeless exploration of the world of LIGHT & SHADOW!
