The drive to create is a strong one in humanity. Whether it is massive structures like the Pyramids or the Eiffel Tower, or the tiniest computer chip, humankind has always been driven to leave its mark on the planet. "Works of Man" is an opportunity for artists to chronicle the indelible mark that has been made by these creations.
With "Works of Man", The Center for Fine Art Photography seeks to chronicle the drive to build, destroy, manufacture and dismantle, that resides in all of us. Images from the tallest building to the smallest child’s toy, the newest electric gadget to the oldest tool from the earliest people, truly anything created by the minds and hands of humanity will be considered
for the show.
The exhibition is open to all domestic and international, professional and amateur photographers working with digital or traditional photography or combinations of both. The Center for Fine Art Photography invites photographers working in all mediums, styles and schools of thought to participate in its exhibitions. Traditional, contemporary, avant-garde, creative and experimental and mixed techniques are welcome.
Juror: Chris Jordan
Former corporate attorney turned photographic artist, Chris Jordan is best known for his large scale works depicting consumerism in the United States. Jordan’s 2005 book In Katrina's Wake: Portraits of Loss from an Unnatural Disaster is a powerful display of his artistry. In October 2007 Chris appeared on the Steven Colbert Report to discuss his body of work, Running the Numbers. Most recently Chris was chosen by National Geographic Channels International to serve as their Eco-ambassador for Earth Day, 2008.
His work, while often unsettling, is a bold message about unconscious behaviors in our everyday lives, leaving it to the viewer to draw conclusions about the inevitable consequences which will arise from our habits.
