 Our juror is Ann Jastrab, the Executive Director at the Center for
Photographic Art in Carmel, California. Before joining CPA, She was
the gallery manager at Scott Nichols Gallery in San Francisco. Ann was also the gallery director at RayKo Photo Center in San Francisco from 2007 until the Center closed in 2017 and juried Rayko's famed  
International Plastic Camera Show for ten years. She created an artist-in-residence program at Rayko, many  of whose participants received Guggenheim Fellowships.

Ann has juried, curated and organized exhibitions in San Francisco as well as nationally and internationally. She holds an MFA, is a fine art
photographer, a master darkroom printer and a teacher.  Ann is thrilled to be jurying this year's Krappy Kamera exhibition.

What is a Krappy Kamera.

 Our philosophy at Soho Photo Gallery is that in the hands of any artist great photographs can be made with basic equipment.  To explore this talent, we are searching for extraordinary photographs made with lousy lenses. Examples of some Krappy Kameras are the Holga, Diana, Ansco, and pinhole cameras. You can also create your own Krappy Kamera by using your non-Krappy Kamera (e.g. 4x5, SRL, DSLR) and exchanging the lens with a Krappy lens (e.g.pinhole body cap or Holga-type lens).Cell phones, disposables and point and shoot cameras are ineligible. Remember, just because a camera is old and moldy doesn't make it Krappy. The lens is the determining factor.

Digital entries must be uploaded at where you will find instructions for submissions. The competition is open to all photographers age 18 years old or older, excluding members of Soho Photo Gallery.
