Altered Realities

Altered Realities
Territory: Worldwide

Eligibility: Open to all
Entry: $35 for five photographs
Prize: Exhibition
Photography is wonderfully capable of altering reality to suit the photographer or, as juror Brooke Shaden puts it:

"An artist's task is to see differently-to create work that shows our common reality with a twist. We don't necessarily create something entirely different or unfamiliar, but use our lens to skew what is expected. Photographs in Altered Realities illustrate the photographer's manipulated world to accommodate their artistic vision. In them, our equilibrium is disturbed, the characters are unpredictable, and we rethink our bearings."

All capture methods and processes are welcome.

About the Juror Within the space of a square frame, I try to build a world that is undeniably separate from the one we live in. I explore death and surrealism in order to show that reality has intricate ties with fantasy. Our world is not so different from the disturbing worlds I create within my frames. It is my goal in photography to make beautiful that which others find disturbing, to take a simple concept (be it birth, death, or something in between - life) and mold it into something complex and magnetic.

There is a particular feeling to all of my photographs, one that touches on the juxtaposition of the real and surreal, a fantasy and a dream riddled with reality.

Brooke is represented by the JoAnne Artman Gallery.
