All About Photo Presents American Portraits: 1978-2006 by Saul Bromberger

I was capturing poignant scenes in our communities that I felt were significant for how they described the American culture, moments that captured American as well as universal sensibilities. Scenes that captured essential truths about people's hopes and their successes, their challenges and despair, their individuality and their relationships, during their day to day lives in our American communities. Scenes that defined an American way of life for me.

These inclusions and exclusion are a crucial part of what photographic storytelling is all about - What is being presented within the frame to the viewer - and what is being left out or left to the viewer's imagination.

Best photo contests with cash prizes
Photography contests are a good way to show your work and of course to obtain the recognition every photographer is looking for. But photo contests are also a way to gain exposure and sometimes to win money. So what are the real photo contests worth entering if you are looking for monetary gains? We have created this list for you, with the exact cash prizes you can expect. The figures are the overall cash prizes, meaning that the first place winner will most likely earn less, but it gives you an idea of what you can expect even if you are not the winner. You can visit each websites to discover the other prizes you can win like exhibitions and publications. In this list we focused on the cash prizes only. But for example if a photo contest promises you a prize pool of $20,000 but the real cash prize is $10,000 (and the rest is equipment worth $10,000 for example), we chose to list the $10,000 cash price only so that you know exactly what the real numbers are.

Critical Mass Highlights 2016
Well, it's happened again. Coming in under the wire, I just finished judging the latest round of Critical Mass finalists.

Through a pre-screening process, the field is narrowed to a group of 200 finalists who go on to have their work viewed and voted on by over 200 esteemed international photography professionals. I'm lucky to be one of these 200 jurors as it means I get the chance to view 200 projects that may potentially fit in with the programming in my gallery. From the finalist group, the Top 50 photographers are named and a series of awards are given, including at least one monograph each year. Photolucida publishes and distributes the award winner's publication, giving copies of the books to all participating photographers and jurors. I've been honored to exhibit the Critical Mass Top 50 show in past years as well as give solo exhibitions to some of the artists I've discovered while judging the competition. As I've just wrapped up looking at the 200 portfolios and while the images are fresh in my mind, I'd like to give a shout out to some of my highlights and surprises.
