On the Road: Structures

John Custodio

“Once or twice a year I take to the road on long trips across the country, looking for interesting landscapes to photograph. In my travels I’ve noticed and photographed what, for want of a better term, could be called “structures”—  lone buildings, towers, monuments, objects, remains of dwellings —  isolated within the landscape. Some are merely functional, some are commemorative, and some are surviving remnants of what once was, but they all serve as a fascinating counterpoint to the wider expanse around them.” © John Custodio

Floraphilia—Revisited

Barry Guthertz

“Most of my flower photographs are created outdoors in public gardens where there are untold variables. It’s a challenge to share the very essence of the flower I’m viewing — to reveal it’s inner core as well as it’s surfaces, textures, shapes and patterns. Digital sepia toning adds another layer of depth and mood while giving me the ability to better communicate the feelings that moved me when I clicked the shutter.” © Barry Guthertz

The Nicaraguans: A Timeless Passage

Robert Kalman

“In the early 1990’s I traveled to Nicaragua to make formal, large format portraits of villagers in the small, rural pueblo of Larreynaga. Twenty years later, I returned to remake their images and to reconnect with their lives. The resulting portraits pull in opposite directions: while they distinctly mark the passage of time, they are also timeless.” © Robert Kalman

Stone Walls of the Incas — NYC

Bruce Wodder

“These 10 handmade platinum prints of Inca stone walls were shot in Cusco and Machu Picchu, Peru. My photographs are about the elusive qualities of light. Regardless of the subject, it is the light that I am really trying to capture. Each object has its own threshold for light; a diffused, overcast light that illuminates without creating dramatic shadows is my favorite. This soft light presents with a sense of direction, but more importantly, it wraps around the subject, blending and bringing something new to a previously ordinary object.” © Bruce Wodder

2017 International Portfolio Competition

Untamed

Jaime Johnson

This portfolio explores humankind’s decay as a marker of identity. Set in the swamps and woods of Mississippi, where one encounters life and death, growth and decay, the cyanotype series chronicles the intimate relationship of a feral woman and her surrounding nonhuman environment. Soho Photo Gallery’s panel of jurors for the 2017 International Portfolio Competition selected three portfolios for exhibition.  Each portfolio will be on exhibit for one month. There were 177 portfolios submitted consisting of 2,853 images. The portfolios came from 32 states and 12 countries. Audrey Bernstein of Pleasantville, NY exhibited in April, Jaime Johnson of Oxford, MS will exhibit this month, and Katarzyna Derda of Niles, IL will exhibit in June. © Jaime Johnson
