Personal Narrative

Ralph Hassenpflug, juror

PhotoPlace Gallery   /   Deadline: 07/22/19

One of the greatest challenges for any artist is to depict deeply personal details about their lives, perspectives and experiences in the world. Whether an artist expresses these attributes via vast landscapes, captured moments or happenstance findings, the result conveys an authentic universality that connects every viewer on some level. At their best, these connections seem to arise from some collective unconscious that we all share, even across generational, gender and cultural divides.

For Personal Narrative, we seek images that suggest this collective unconscious. All capture methods and processes 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.


$39 for up to 5 images, $6 each additional


Open to all photographers. To encourage international participation, we offer free matting and framing to all exhibitors for the duration of the exhibit.


See link below for details and submission. Submission deadline is midnight, July 22, 2019 Digital files only, submitted through our website.


We are very pleased that Ralph Hassenpflug will be jurying and curating this exhibition. He will select approximately 35 images for exhibition in the gallery, and 35 for our Online Gallery. The recipients of the Juror's Award and the Director's Award will each be entitled to an online portfolio review by Mr. Hassenpflug.

All 75 selected images will be reproduced in the exhibition print catalog and remain permanently on our website, with links to photographer's URL. Gallery exhibition September 12 to October 5, 2019
