Call for Entries: The Poetry of the Ordinary
“Joy comes to us in moments — ordinary moments. We risk missing out on joy when we get too busy chasing down the extraordinary." - Brené Brown
As photographers, we have developed skill in seeing beneath the surface of our subjects, and often find in them the beauty, poignancy, and poetry that exist in ordinary moments. For this exhibition, we seek the simple poetic elegance of the ordinary. All captures and processes are welcome.
We are honored that Henry Horenstein will be the curator for The Poetry of the Ordinary. He will select up to 35 images for exhibition in our Middlebury, Vermont gallery and another 40 images for our Online Gallery. All 75 images will be reproduced in the exhibition catalog and remain permanently on our website, with links to photographer’s URL.
Exhibition with distinctions for Juror’s Award, Director’s Award, and Honorable Mention
All photographers 18 years of age and up
