The work you see in this online
exhibition, we think represents
some of the brightest (pardon the pun) night work on or off
the Web. In jurying this competition, we were continually
amazed with the variety of techniques and treatments we saw.
And once again, we were impressed with the irony, humor,
and synchronicity of the different individuals' work. I mean,
there were two pieces that referenced Jupiter!
A number chose
the moon as an element - another good choice. Still another
entrant chose Urbana, IL. as the title - only spelled backwards,
helping to unveil the lush ritualistic, primitive aspect
we find in much of Night Imagery. Many pieces dealt with
the monolithic - another popular theme in Night Photography.
There could have been many more prize winners - the work
was that good. Great job, all!
