Krappy Kamera Turns 20
Soho Photo is proud to present its twentieth annual Krappy Kamera Exhibition. We are celebrating by presenting the winners of the 2018 International Competition, an exhibit by Soho Photo Gallery artists, a solo exhibit by photographer Jean Miele and a group show by past winners of Krappy Kamera Competitions. The Competition was originally created by Sandra Carrion in 1998 for Soho Photo Gallery’s members only, but achieved such success and popularity that it was expanded to a national competition and then an international competition. Our Month of Krap is one of the highlights of Soho Photo’s year.
We are honored to have Sandra as this year’s juror. She is a former president of Soho Photo Gallery, a founding member of fotofoto gallery in Huntington, Long Island and the co-founder of Image Factory Experimental Photography Workshops. Sandra conducts Portfolio Developmemt Workshops for B&H Photo and is a teacher of photography at Nassau Community College.
“It has always been interesting to me that so many photographers are lugging their toy, plastic and homemade cameras with them to exotic lands. This year was no different. Images from many parts of the world were represented in a variety of treatments. From literal to experimental these artists breathed new life into everyday imagery from around the globe.”
Jean Miele is a widely shown fine art photographer, teacher, writer and workshop leader. He loves photography’s magical ability to transform the world whether by Krappy Kamera, Photoshop, contemporary or antiquarian process. His work explores the borderlands between fiction and reality, and reflects a lifelong interest in perception, spirituality and mysticism.
Regarding “Listening for the Light” Miele writes “…surrounded by the seemingly familiar, how can we see things anew? A plastic lens can be a catalyst, but the truth is we don’t see with cameras, or even our eyes. We see with our minds. Interpreting the world-making sense of the sensory data we receive is a solitary, internal and magical act.”
