Reverberation: PCNW's 25th Juried Exhibition 

Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures. — Don McCullin

How do you capture a vibration? The continual resonance of events of the last two years is felt in ways that are subtle, not always seen. For the silver anniversary of Photographic Center Northwest's (PCNW) juried exhibition, we seek work that reflects the reverberations that have had such a dramatic effect on our lives, culture, and politics. This year's esteemed jurors are Jennifer L. Stoots, certified photography appraiser and photo historian; and Liza Faktor, curator and creative producer. 

Submissions of the moving and still image are welcome; those that are selected will be included in an exhibition at the PCNW Gallery, on view April 7 - June 5, 2022. 

EXTENDED - Deadline to apply is Monday, February 21, 2022

Juror bios: 

Jennifer L. Stoots, AAA, has been working in the museum and gallery industry for 28 years, in the photography marketplace for 24 years, and has been appraising documentary & fine art photographs, photographic archives, and contemporary art for just shy of 20 years. In addition to her art appraisal work, she lectures on the economic history of fine art & the photography market and participates in public presentations centered around legacy and estate planning strategies for artists & photographers. She has also written articles about the process and methodologies of appraisal valuations, as relates to photographs and photographic archives, and has a keen interest in the (extraordinary) benefits of integrated arts education. She is also a photo historian and has a series dedicated to photography history on social media. (Instagram call sign: stoots.jennifer)

Stoots received her Master’s degree in the History of Art & Design from Pratt Institute (2013) and her Bachelor’s in Art History from the University of Oregon (1994). The trajectory of her career took shape when she worked at the S K Josefsberg Studio in Portland (1998 - 2004), managing the photography gallery and sales. In 2002, Stoots acquired her appraising credentials from NYU’s Appraisal Studies Program for Fine and Decorative Arts and she is Certified in Photography by the Appraisers Association of America (AAA). 

Liza Faktor is a creative producer, curator and artist. She is a producing partner at Vessel art+film production collective. In her career that spans twenty five years she has curated over 20 exhibitions and programs on the intersection of photography, video art, performance and technology - in the US, the UK, Italy, France, the Netherlands, Brazil, Spain, UAE, and Russia. She has produced award-winning visual documentary projects with artists and filmmakers.

She is a recipient of the Howard Chapnick prize for advancement of photojournalism (2002 and 2016). She was a jury member of the World Press Photo Digital Storytelling Contest (2014 and 2017).
