Exhibition
We are interested in photo-based artists that are fifty years old and older for this online exhibition. Too often youth is rewarded and age is neglected. Our aim is to celebrate those who have been practicing their photo-based art or photography for a long time and those who have only recently discovered their artistic talent.

Juror: Gordon Stettinius​

In 2010, Gordon Stettinius, an artist and educator, founded an independent publishing company, Candela Books, which has published monographs from Gita Lenz, Chris McCaw, Willie Anne Wright, Paul Thulin and others. Candela's most recent release is Dr. Falke's ORACULUM by Nicholas Kahn and Richard Selesnick.

Soon after, Stettinius founded Candela Gallery in 2011, with the mission being to bring notable photographers to Richmond, Virginia, in an effort to elevate the discourse around contemporary photography. The gallery produces 7-8 feature exhibitions a year; one or two book-related exhibitions each year; and one unbridled, free-for-all, group exhibition each summer.

Candela Gallery has a community-minded philosophy, often presenting political, environmental, and/or subversive work, but their foundation is built upon an emphasis on the photographic object and its craft.
