I was honored to be invited to jury the 2021 PORTRAIT exhibition for Photo Place Gallery. The task of jurying work is always a challenge and I thank everyone who entered. My ‘Jurors Award’ went to Kent Meister for his portrait “Maisha & Victor, Prospect Park, Lakeside, Brooklyn.” The ‘Director’s Award’ went to Terry Wild for his classic black and white portrait of Emogen Cunningham - known as the "Grandmother of Photography” - in honor of her seminal role in popularizing photography in its early years. 'Honorable Mentions' went to Jeremiah Dine’s portrait of his wife Anne-Marie through a prism of light; Juno Gemes portrait of HH The Dalai Lama; and Susan May Tell’s “Man Through A Van, San Francisco”.

PhotoPlace Gallery is located in the oldest remaining residence in Middlebury, Vermont. Built in 1799 as a residence for the foreman of the water mill on Otter Creek, the sagging, hand-hewn beams and lumber from virgin forest bespeak its age — and its charm. All visitors are welcome to the gallery during our normal business hours: 11 am to 4 pm Tuesday through Friday. Saturdays by appointment
