The juror for this year's exhibition: Raymond Gehman
RAYMOND GEHMAN has worked for National Geographic Society since 1986. With three cover photographs and numerous books and articles, he has been on assignment in Yellowstone, Wyoming’s Bighorn Country, Florida’s Sanibel Island Gulf Coast, the Canadian Rockies, the rain forests of Belize, Icelandic glaciers and icebergs, deep, dark Polish forests, and rural China during the People’s Republic 50th anniversary celebration. He has documented grizzly bears, the vanishing prairie dog and wetlands, the ecology of fire, the aftermath of hurricanes, hot pools, and nocturnal Apache ceremonial dancers. Previously, he studied fine arts photography at Northern Virginia Community College and earned a degree in photojournalism from the renowned School of Journalism at the University of Missouri, Columbia. He worked for 11 years as a newspaper photojournalist in Montana and Virginia. Recently he has concentrated on more personal digital artwork, turning the ordinary into the extraordinary by shooting everything from apples to oranges, flowers to flying light domes, and glass globes to transcendent trucks, and transforming these subjects into dazzling impressionistic imagery. In 2010 his work will be exhibited from Virginia to Houston to Colorado.
