Finding the Light

Laura Moya, juror

PhotoPlace Gallery   /   Deadline: 11/09/20

The quality of the light on a subject has a profound effect on the power of a photograph. Its color, direction, and diffusion often define the success or failure of an image. As filmmaker Aaron Rose puts it, "In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary".

For this exhibit, we're looking for images whose success depends on the quality of the light. Whether light or dark, bright or dull, natural or artificial, the subject of these images is the magic, the possibilities, and the nuances of the light itself. All capture and processing methods are welcome.


PhotoPlace Gallery's mission is to support contemporary fine art photography as a means of creative expression and cultural insight. PhotoPlace Gallery sponsors exhibition opportunities through international juried exhibits in Middlebury, Vermont, through its published exhibition catalogs, and on its website.
