‘Intimate Portraits’ - at PhotoPlace Gallery by Claude Peschel Dutombe

"To my mind, the title 'Intimate Portraits' describes portraits that go beyond the surface and explore or reveal a deeper vision of the subject. This can be accomplished by showing an environmental context, capturing a telling expression, or, as in the case of the image that won the juror’s award, construction of a magical vision that does not exist outside the mind of the artist."
Joyce Tenneson -Juror’s Statement

Joyce Tenneson, a master in the field of portrait photography in her own rights, juried this group exhibition at PhotoPlace Gallery.

A print from 'Ayutthaya Heritage' was selected for participation.

  Juror's Statement:    As someone who leans toward skepticism when it involves matters of the supernatural, I often consider that which is “haunted” as being the interior traces of my memories of people, places, and/or experiences that I haven’t let go of. In other words, for me a “haunting” is interior, psychological, and personal, not exterior (as in ghosts or spirits of unknown others that inhabit an old hotel or house). As Stephen King says, “Monsters are real, and ghosts are real too. They live inside us, and sometimes, they win.” Whatever one believes, it can be said that such matters traditionally makes fertile ground for storytelling. In terms of photography—a medium that is largely dependent upon reality—such concepts are often expressed or symbolically utilized by a variety of effects (motion, blur, manipulation of light, etc.) in an attempt to visually express the suggested or non-visible. For this exhibition, I viewed a compelling variety of interpretations and approaches to the theme Haunted to arrive at the selection you see here. In the end, I hope that viewers will not only consider the photographs before them, but what haunts them personally as well.      Russell Joslin, September 13, 2016
