Dan Burkholder is known for looking over photography’s horizon to discover new ways of capturing and expressing the photographic image. In the early 1990’s he wrote the groundbreaking book Making Digital Negatives for Contact Printing. In 2012, he led the mobile photography revolution with his book, iPhone Artistry. Many of his images are expressed as platinum/palladium prints enhanced with hand-applied gold leaf and other precious metals, combining twentieth century technology with nineteenth century printing processes. Dan earned his BA and MA degrees in photography from Brooks Institute of Photography in California. His prints are in private and public collections internationally.
The competition is open to all photographers age 18 years old and older, excluding members of Soho Photo Gallery. Digital entries and fees must be uploaded at callforentry.org where you will find submission instructions.
