A True Story

April 5th, 2011 - April 29th, 2011

Photography is the medium of memory. With its birth came the pictorial press and the realization that “a picture tells a thousand words.” This is documentary photography. It is present and tangible, and we rely on it to be authentic and true; it teaches us and when presented in proper context, we believe what we see.

It is the job of the Photojournalist and Documentary Photographer to present the facts at hand.  It is a challenging job often requiring instant decisions and sometimes in the face of substantial obstacles.  How do we do this succinctly and objectively while providing an engaging and remarkable image or series?  Is it possible to capture a photographic truth while simultaneously expressing our naturally subjective eye?  Our Juror Peter Turnley has proven the task can be successful.



Full Color Catalog now available at VioVio

All selected entries are included in a full color exhibit catalog. Juror's Choice receives a 20x35" vinyl exhibit banner featuring their image. We offer free matting and framing of accepted entries for the duration of each of our exhibition, subject to standard sizes. Photographers set their own prices if they wish to sell their work and retain all rights to their photographs.

I was impressed with the quality of the submissions. Almost all of the images submitted offered a sense of authentic, sincere, humanism and very many reflected an appreciation for moments of grace, elegance, and complexity in the human condition. There are a number of images chosen as well that depict many layers of interest, mystery, and complexity- often suggesting visual questions as much as offering answers.

I'm looking forward to my visit on April 12th and hope to meet some of the photographers that made these images.

Juror:  Peter Turnley

PETER TURNLEY was educated in French Literature and International Relations, inspiring his truly International work. For the past quarter century, he has been photographing in more than eighty-five countries, capturing world conflict, and several major geo-political moments.  His portraits of political, cultural, and religious leaders as well as photo essays of a variety of social realities additionally weight his extensive, ever-expanding portfolio.   He has published five books:  “Beijing Spring”, “Moments of Revolution”, “In Times of War and Peace”, “Parisians”, and “McClellan Street”. His images have been published in International magazines including Stern, Paris Match, Geo, Life, National Geographic, the London Sunday Times, Le Monde, and Doubletake. Additionally, Turnley’s photographs have been showcased on the cover of Newsweek magazine over forty times. We are thrilled to have his extensive experience as a successful Photojournalist and Documentary Photographer applied to his mission as Juror for “A True Story.”
