Contest Title: In Transit
Deadline: October 26, 2012
Whether by road, sea, rail, air, or other means, vehicles are both essential and ubiquitous in our daily lives. Photographers have documented transportation history, as NASA launched rockets, Ford assembled cars, and the Wright brothers took flight. As modes of transportation, photographers observe the intersections of cultures on public transit and the isolation of solitary commuters on the highway. Modes of transit spawn communities, and photographers have documented biker gangs and houseboats.
Journeys are photographed out of windows of speeding vehicles; blurred, voyeuristic, and fleeting. The vehicles themselves are cultural icons and status symbols: sailboats, muscle cars, Harley-Davidsons, and fixed gear bicycles. For In Transit, The Kiernan Gallery seeks images from and of the vehicles that move us.
All photographic media are encouraged.
Juror: Jock Montgomery
Jock Montgomery has worked as a professional guide and expedition leader – and of course as a photographer – in some of the most beautiful spots in the world. Straight out of college, Jock moved to Nepal to train raft guides and lead trekking, river running and mountain biking trips in Nepal, Tibet, India and Bhutan. He has taken more than 70 groups on a variety of trips in the Himalayas, as well as co-lead numerous kayaking expeditions with first descents in Nepal, Bhutan and India. After 12 amazing years in Katmandu, Jock is now based in Bangkok, Thailand, with his French wife and co-explorateur Annie Miniscloux where he is in demand as a commercial and editorial assignment photographer. He was the sole photographer for Menam Chao Phraya, River of Life and Legend, a 252-page coffee-table book about Thailand’s principal waterway. He speaks Nepali fluently and is conversant in Thai.
For this exhibition, juror Jock Montgomery will select up to 30 images for display in the main gallery, and up to an additional 40 to be included in the online gallery. All images will be reproduced in an exhibition catalogue available for purchase. A Juror's Choice and Director's Choice will also be announced.
