Evaluation Criteria

The Photographic Nude is a juried exhibit exploring the artistic and creative view of the body and its form, celebrating the nude in photography by embracing a variety of styles. We welcome the timeless elegance of a classical study as well as alternative and provocative styles. Studies of the whole or partial human form, nude or semi-nude are eligible.

Christa Blackwood serves as juror.

Christa Blackwood is an acclaimed photo-based artist whose photographs of male nudes reference identity, photographic/art history and popular culture. Her works employ multiple techniques and methods fusing traditional, historical and alternative methods with contemporary ideas and practices. She has been featured in The New York Times, Art Desk Magazine, The Village Voice and The Chicago Sun Times and her work has been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the U.S. and abroad.
Blackwood is thrilled to jury LightBox's annual nude exhibition and is interested in seeing nudes presented in unique and meaningful ways, i.e., nudes that meld photographic technique with ideas and surprise.
