“A true portrait can never hide the inner life of its subject. It is interesting that in our culture we hide and cover the body, yet our faces are naked. Through a person’s face we can potentially see everything — the history and depth of that person’s life as well as their connection to an even deeper universal presence.” — Joyce Tenneson
For this call for submissions, we seek portraits that go beneath the surface to reveal aspects of the subject that usually remain hidden. All capture methods and processes are welcome.
We are honored indeed that Joyce Tenneson will be the juror for Intimate Portraits. She will select 35 images for exhibition in our Middlebury, Vermont gallery and another 40 for our Online Gallery. All 75 images will be reproduced in the exhibition print catalog and recognized on social media.
The Juror’s Award and Director’s Award recipients will each be entitled to a portfolio review with Joyce Tenneson.
