Water is a powerful element of change. It washes mountains to the sea, and is now drowning major cities. Water itself is capable of change: liquid, solid, vapor. A peaceful source of beauty and joy, or a raging torrent.

For this exhibition, we would like to show the many moods of water, its role in human uses, and its impact on the earth.  All capture methods and processing are welcome.

We are delighted to welcome Hannah Frieser as juror for Water 2020. She will select 35 images for exhibition in our Middlebury, Vermont gallery and another 35 for our Online Gallery. All 70 images will be reproduced in the exhibition catalog. The recipients of the Juror’s Award and the Director’s Award will each be entitled to an online  portfolio review by the juror.


Hannah Frieser is the Executive Director of The Center for Photography at Woodstock. Hannah has reviewed portfolios and juried exhibitions worldwide for FotoFest, Rhubarb Rhubarb, Photolucida, PhotoVisa, folioPORT and, among others, and is a frequent lecturer on photography and contemporary photographic practices. Her essays have been featured in publications such as Contact Sheet, Exposure, Daylight, and Nueva Luz, and in monographs for Susan kae Grant, David Taylor, Ferit Kuyas and more.
