Photowork is an annual exhibition of contemporary photographs curated from photographers throughout the United States and jurored by leading curators, critics, and processionals in the field. Photowork celebrates its 31st year in 2018, and BAC is proud to welcome 2017 Pulitzer Prize winning photographer E. Jason Wambsgans as this year’s juror. 
The show embraces reinvention, wherein artists provide a juxtaposition of traditional styles and cutting-edge practices in dynamic imagery. The show celebrates photography's role as fine art and prescient social commentary. Winners in the past have spanned the gamut of photographic output from small to large format cameras, pinhole cameras, silver gelatin prints, pigment prints, chromogenic prints, and everything in between.

About the Juror
2017 Pulitzer Prize winning photographer E. Jason Wambsgans is a staff photographer at the Chicago Tribune, where he has spent the last 15 years covering stories that have taken him from the vanishing rainforests of Madagascar to the war in Afghanistan, and the last 5 years intensively documenting the problem of Chicago’s gun violence. Wambsgans studied fine art and cinema at Central Michigan University. Throughout a career of wide-ranging assignments, his editors have counted on his ability to inventively meet challenges, whether aesthetic, technical or conceptual, while gracefully conveying the human experience.
