Brian and Bryan had this to say about the experience: “It was an honor to judge the many impressive entries submitted for the 2012 Center for Photographic Art Juried Exhibition. Yet, it was a challenge to select the final images from all the great photographs! Viewing the many entries was a rare and incredible glimpse into what’s going on in contemporary photography today, and we hope this exhibition offers a similar overview to our visitors. Overall, the artwork is broadly diversified and wonderfully creative. This California region has long been hallowed ground for every sort of powerful subject matter– from beautiful portraits, still lifes, and often surreal landscapes, to wonderful abstractions and surprising experimentation. From cyanotypes to platinum prints, magnificent traditional darkroom silver prints to state-of-the-art digital images, each photographer clearly reveals their own singular voice and vision, as evidenced by this impressive exhibition!”
