Critical Mass

Have you heard about Critical Mass?

The aim of Critical Mass is to provide participants with career-building opportunities and to promote the best emerging and mid-career artists working today.

From an original pool of 570 photographers, juried by a pre-selected group of photography professionals, the top 150 is distributed to over 200 more photo movers and shakers – curators from all over the world, dealers, and people who can make a difference in your work being seen and shown.

Two things – First – I was so excited that so many wall space artists were represented in the top 150 – Mitch Dobrowner, Douglas Ethridge, Cynthia Greig, Michael Levin, Kathy Smith and Aline Smithson. Then to have Mitch, Cynthia and Michael make the top 50 I thought was fantastic!

Second – That I was part of the juror pool to look at the top 150. I was able to see some really great work that I wouldn’t normally get to see.

The top six vote-getters have the opportunity to have a monograph published of their work.

Here they are – what do you think?
