ROAD TRIP by Laura Barth
HONORABLE MENTION
(Click on image for larger view)

Laura Barth says, "I have never been particularly good at long, drawn out conversations.

I tend to be better at things that are brief, direct, and to the point. What I love so much about photography is that you can say so much without having to say anything at all, and that there are so many photographic “words," all around us at any given time, that we can use. I tend to think my photographic style is much like my preferred conversations: direct (but not without empathy or feeling), hopefully eloquent, sometimes awkward (but in a way that makes you laugh or think), lively, and always imbued with an appreciation of the conversation itself and its participants."

Laura Barth is an artist, musician, and horticulturist currently living in Blacksburg, Virginia. Primary media include photography (digital and analog), charcoal, watercolor, and mixed media.

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS:

2nd Place, L.A. Photo Curator. "Relationship" exhibition/competition.

BEGUILING POPPY by Karen Hochman Brown
HONORABLE MENTION
(Click on image for larger view)

Karen Hochman Brown says, "My kaleidoscopic fascination goes back to my childhood days. I take a simple tube of cardboard and mirror, looking with one eye while closing the other. All is reflected light; the world goes away.

Computer software and hardware now replace my toy. I sit with a stylus and keyboard, watching the show unfold as I turn, layer, and spin reflections of my photographs. Not restricted to a flat mirror, I romp through polar space, fiddle with fractals, and play in the realm of infinite images. 

I get great satisfaction spinning my digital kaleidoscope, creating each of the bits of the piece as a whole. But the real fun is weaving the many kaleidoscopic layers of my art into a single image. The finished piece should hold a cohesive energy and balance. Shading each layer creates depth. I want the viewer to be drawn into the singular world encased in the artwork."

Karen Hochman Brown [American, b.1958] is a Los Angeles-based nature photographer using software to manipulate her images into multi-layered kaleidoscopic constructs.

Her work is sensitive to the inherent beauty of the subjects as she strives to magnify that quality through focus and repetition. The resulting geometric forms resonate in harmony and discord, creating unique energies. 

She studied art at Pitzer College, California College of Art and Art Center College of Design, but self-developed her processes through experimentation, relying heavily on skills learned as a graphic designer. Inspirations include Georgia O’Keeffe, Piet Mondrian, Frank Stella and the Geometric Abstraction movement.

Hochman Brown work has been shown mainly in California and New York. In addition to the kaleidoscopic art, she works in digital painting and animation techniques. She is also involved in community theater and a Jewish choir.

RED AND YELLOW by Carl Shubs
HONORABLE MENTION
(Click on image for larger view)

Carl Shubs says “I am a contemporary art photographer, based in Los Angeles.   My work captures the moments that surround us and that we often overlook in the mundane of everyday living. 

I want the viewer to reach beyond the obvious, feel an emotion, or think about something in a new way.  I prefer to shoot whatever catches my eye as I go out into the world, and I call these “found images.”

I’m drawn to singular scenes like a boy in a lingerie shop, a tree with sneakers hanging from it in the middle of nowhere at moonrise, or something about shapes, patterns, or colors.  My photos are typically presented without compositing or major Photoshop editing. 

I love when someone thinks that an image is set up rather than captured or is made by some kind of photographic manipulation when actually it is what the camera saw.  I’m delighted when people don’t know what they are looking at in a photo, but love it anyway.”

Carl Shubs is a self-taught photographer and also a psychologist in private practice in Beverly Hills.  His first exhibit was in 2011, as part of a group show at the Museum of Neon and Kinetic Art, in Los Angeles.  That recognition encouraged him to deepen his commitment to photography and to begin showing his work. 

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS:

In 2014 he was accepted into membership in the Los Angeles Art Association (LAAA).  His work is held in private collections and he has exhibited nationally and internationally.  He has been in many juried exhibitions (including over 20 in 2016 and also in 2017, with several already in or scheduled for 2018). 

His acclaimed jurors have included Andi Campognone, Peter Frank, Herair & Lori Garboushian, Elizabeth Avedon, Greg Gorman, Jim Morphesis, Brian Paul Clamp, Shana Nys Dambrot, Debra Klomp Ching, Aline Smithson, David Garnick, Mark Steven Greenfield, and Richard Vogel.

He has won awards and honors, had his work published in such prestigious publications as Lenscratch, F-Stop Magazine, and the Photographer's Forum hardcover book Best of Photography 2015, and been in a digital display at the Louvre.  He is proud to have curated a combination solo exhibit and group show that included seventeen amazing artists who work in a variety of media.  He has also been invited to be curator for L.A. Photo Curator’s online exhibition “Street Shooting.”

MINA by Nadide Goksun
HONORABLE MENTION
(Click on image for larger view)

Nadide Goksun says, "The Swimmers series presents idyllic scenes of people relaxing and enjoying their time in water.

The idea is rooted in my childhood remembrances of summer holidays on the Aegean seaside. All shots are made from upwards so no vista apart from a person and water surface can be seen. Such composition creates the illusion of levitation and lightness that attracts people to go swimming. On the psychological level, the element of water is often associated with life, safety, and the calmness of prenatal period and connection to the inner balance.  I am a ceramic artist and photographer.

I studied computer programming at Bogazici University in Istanbul and Korean ceramics at Sungshin Women’s University in Seoul.My interest in photography turned into a passion as I started to study at the International Center of Photography in NYC.

I was born in Ankara, Turkey in 1967 and have lived in Istanbul, TelAviv and Seoul.I currently live in Scarsdale, New York."
