LightBox Photographic Gallery established “The Photographic Nude“ series to reveal compelling imagery and the mastery of the medium. The hope was to foster an appreciation of the nude in the medium of photography and to gain an understanding of the theme historically in the photographic art form as well as to bring recognition to the current photographers who practice their art with the theme of the nude. With a total of 50 images selected for the exhibit from 38 photographers, the show represents many of the very talented practitioners of the photographic fine art nude from around the world.
This year’s exhibit was juried by Christa Blackwood of Austin, Texas. Christa Blackwood is an acclaimed photo-based artist whose photographs of male nudes reference identity, photographic/art history and popular culture. Her works employ multiple techniques and methods — fusing traditional, historical and alternative methods with contemporary ideas and practices. She has been featured in The New York Times, Art Desk Magazine, The Village Voice and The Chicago Sun Times and her work has been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the U.S. and abroad.
For the exhibit Christa Blackwood was interested in seeing nudes presented in unique and meaningful ways, i.e., nudes that meld photographic technique with ideas and surprise.
Again this year all accepted images to The Photographic Nude 2018 exhibit will be published in the upcoming Spring edition of Blur magazine, www.blur-magazine.com, an online PDF magazine promoting international fine art photography, located in Zagreb, Croatia.
