2016 International Krappy Kamera® Competition 

Exhibition: March 2–April 2, 2016                               Reception: March 1, 6–8 pm                                   

This year’s juror, Susan Burnstine, is an award winning fine art and commercial photographer originally from Chicago now based in Los Angeles.  She is represented in galleries throughout the world, is widely published, and teaches workshops internationally.  Burnstine writes for several photography magazines, including a monthly column for Black and White Photography Magazine (UK).  Burnstine is one of the few photographers today avidly pursuing alternative processes to create an idiosyncratic and deeply personal visual landscape.  She has sought to portray her dream-like visions entirely in-camera.  To achieve this she has created handmade film cameras and lenses that are often unpredictable and technically challenging.  Learning to overcome their extensive optical limitations has required Burnstine to rely on instinct and intuition—the same tools that are key when attempting to interpret dreams.
