JUDGE: This year’s show will be judged by fine art photographer, Helen Smith-Romer. Romer works with collaged color photography using a repetition of human features to create bright, surrealist portraits and settings contrasted against a dark background. Romer states that her current body of work, “investigates the paradoxical beauty and mysticism of assemblages and the process of doing imagery.” Her work can be found in various collections across the country, including the University of Minnesota and the Chicago Historical Society.
