Context 2020

My congratulations to all of the artists included in Context 2020. It was a privilege to review the many strong submissions, and, in turn, to acknowledge that the quality of submissions stand as a credit to Filter Photo for their fine work in expanding the notion of a photo-based practice. The works selected are by default a reflection of my own opinion of photography’s current strengths: traditional themes made more relevant with a strong dose of the poetry that is photographic abstraction. Portraiture that is traditional ¾ frontal pose or in situ, but also mysterious and questioning. Landscape or streetscapes that are also–or primarily–read as formal tonal fields. Photo experimentation that is both process-directed and simultaneously not read foremost as a photograph.  The blurred, but not confused, nature of photography in 2020 is all represented here.
