“In a short story, environmental portraits are the setting, the part of the tale that establishes mood and creates a backdrop for the narrative to begin.” — Polly Gaillard, Arts Writer

The call for “Environmental Portraits” created a wide range of images entered; traditional, contemporary, young and old, ancient and modern, unique cultures presented from different perspectives.

I want to thank every photographer who put themselves and their work out there for this call. There were almost two thousand images submitted and it was my honor to become very familiar with each of them. As I slowly began to see a “show” come together - some images moving the narrative along in a unique way - I believe in the end the images chosen are a compelling group, collectively taking each of us on a personal journey of our own — Elizabeth Avedon, Juror
