All About Photo Awards Winners
Jules Maeght Gallery
Start Date: 2016-05-17 | End Date: 2016-05-28
The winning images of the first annual juried photography awards hosted by All About Photo will be exhibited at the Jules Maeght Gallery in San Francisco May 17th-May 28th, 2016. The ten international jurors (Julia Fullerton-Batten, Sandrine Hermand-Grisel, Frank Horvat, Ann Jastrab, Ed Kashi, Jules Maeght, Klavdij Sluban, Keiichi Tahara, Ami Vitale, and Cara Weston) viewed and scored nearly 5,000 images for this inaugural competition. As one of the jurors, I was overwhelmed not only by the number of submissions, but also by the quality of the submissions. There were so many dynamic images from around the world that it was difficult to choose only 5 for top honors.

Photo Focus:

Lisa Elmaleh
Lisa Elmaleh is a landscape photographer who uses an 8 x 10" camera and the collodion on glass process. This process from the mid 1800's requires an on-site darkroom, which is built into the back of her truck. She attended the School of Visual Arts in New York, and became inspired by the historical landscape photographers of the American West such as Carleton Watkins and William Henry Jackson. By documenting the Everglades in Florida, an ecosystem that has lost most of the land to urban and agricultural use, Elmaleh hopes to preserve an essence of the Everglades. The freshwater flowing into the national park is engineered, making it an ecosystem on life support, "alive but diminished". The following images come from the series Everglades, Lonesome Valley, and American Folk.

His latest photographic series, Bodies, consists of nudes painted white against a black backdrop, their faces tuned away from the viewer.

Nowhere to Run: Climate Refugees
Dates: Close on July 15, 2016
Category: All
Hosted by: Nowhere to Run: Climate Refugees
Territory: Worldwide
Entry Fee: No - FREE
Prize: Exhibition
Nowhere to Run: Climate Refugees is seeking eye-witness accounts of the experiences of people forced to leave their homes and communities because of climate change and environmental degradation, whether from flood, drought, storm, rising sea levels, deforestation or agricultural uncertainty. Climate refugees, also called environmental migrants, are found worldwide in places of both privilege and poverty (ranging from New York to Bangladesh). There are said to be at least 50 million environmental refugees today and the United Nations predicts the number could grow to 120 million by 2050. Nowhere to Run is documenting, preserving and sharing images along with untold stories from those experiencing climate catastrophes anywhere on Earth. To do this, we are creating a digital platform and eventually a touring art exhibition and book. We invite photos, short videos and artwork by professionals or others of events as they happened (for example, storms) and/or the consequences of those events (for example, refugee camps, devastated landscapes and homes, destroyed flora and fauna). We ask that all images be accompanied by the name of the photographer or art maker, email or other form of address where we can contact you, the name of the location, the date an event took place, the name(s) of any displaced person(s), should they agree to be identified and whatever additional information might tell the story. We seek international artist interpretations of the experiences of those who are forced to flee their homelands because of flood, drought, storm, rising sea levels, deforestation or agricultural uncertainty, mining, fracking, dams, tar sands, “post-colonial” colonization and other violations throughout the planet. And we seek works by artists that also describe the power, agency, spiritual strength, actions and alliances of those affected. Between 50 and 75 images will be chosen from artists worldwide. Whether prints, photographs, drawings, paintings, or other forms, work for exhibition must be on paper, no larger than 16”x20” and unframed, unmated (art will be hung with clips or magnets). All images must be submitted as JPEGs at 300 dpi or higher. For the exhibition, a limited number of video artworks will also be considered. DVDs must be compatible with broadcast formats used in the United States. Please submit entries by JPEG attachment to Jennifer Heath, baksunarts@aol.com Include a short bio and an artist statement related to the work – who, what, where, when, how. DVD submissions may be posted on Vimeo.
