LightBox Photographic Gallery opens “The Photographic Nude 2019” with an opening artists’ reception on Saturday, February 9th from 5-8 p.m. This is the ninth year of the annual international juried exhibit, a collection of photographic prints exploring the artistic and creative view of the body and its form, dedicated to the creative spirit of photographer Ruth Bernhard.
LightBox established “The Photographic Nude“ series in 2010 to reveal compelling imagery and to gain an understanding of the nude historically in the photographic medium. With 50 images selected for the exhibit from 35 photographers, this year LightBox is happy to have Renée Jacobs as Juror for the Exhibit. Renée is a celebrated photographer of the female nude and recipient of the International Photography Award for Fine Art Nude. Renée, living in France, is Executive Director of Photos de Femmes, she is a fierce advocate of recapturing the “female gaze” and women’s agency in how they are depicted in art and photographic history.
The show features many very talented practitioners of the photographic fine art nude from around the world. This year’s International entries come from Israel, Spain, and Hungary along with work from around the United States. Congratulations to Allan Barnes of Los Angeles for receiving the Juror’s Award as well as Victor Zamanski from Israel and Ana Tornel from Spain for receiving the 2nd and 3rd Juror’s Awards.
