Thank you Jurors, Kate Jordahl, David Pace and Danny Sanchez !!!  Jurors comments:

Kate Jordahl  “It has been an interesting and thought-provoking experience to be a juror for  “Talking Eye 2.” Like the innovative “hand camera” that Alfred Steiglitz used in his photographic explorations of the New York streets early in the 20th century, cell phone cameras offer spontaneity and new opportunities and challenges for the photographic artist in the 21st century. In choosing the images for inclusion in the exhibition and for recognition, I searched for images where the photographer used the limitations to make lasting images that are simply good photographs.  The photographs exhibited here fulfill the challenge to make images that transcend tools and communicate ideas in a powerful manner. Using these cameras that are always in our pockets, these photographers’ work expand our communal photographic vision. Congratulations to the photographers and to the “Talking Eye 2” organizers for another intriguing exhibition.”

David Pace  “I was impressed by the variety of subjects and approaches and the overall quality of the work.

Danny Sanchez  “Amazing! That is the word that comes to mind with regards to jurying The Talking Eye 2 exhibition. Whether left up to chance, for the App gods to decide the outcome, or carefully crafted through multiple applications, it is exciting to see artists embrace this new genre for image making. One of my favorite quotes by Ansel Adams is, “You don’t take a photograph, you make it.”
