Photo Regional 35
April 17–June 15:
No sooner were we thoroughly impressed by the work of more than 100 photographers who entered their work in Photography Regional 35, but now we have the selected exhibits to enjoy. Twenty percent of the entered work in the salon was selected for the Photo Regional opened on May 4 following the awards presentations and juror's talk.

The juror, Shelby Lee Adams, has reduced the 353 images — which were exhibited in a salon-style show — to a highly select 71 photographs by 59 photographers. Eleven photographers had more than one selected work. More than 60 percent of the exhibited photographers are current or former members of the PhotoCenter and/or Fulton Street Gallery. The annual Photo Regional is being hosted by the Fulton Street Gallery, with participation by the Photography Center of the Capital District, Troy. This is a salon-style exhibit where all entries will be displayed in the galleries for at least one week.
Photographers living within an 80-mile radius of Albany/Troy were eligible and encouraged to participate.
The opening reception on May 4 included a talk by juror Shelby Lee Adams. Adams was born in 1950 in Hazzard, Kentucky.

This was it! The final opportunity of the century.
12/12/12 — This repeating date will never repeat.
Exhibitors used this date to make photos for "One Day: 12/12/12" the next exhibition at the Photography Center of the Capital District. Such a day will certainly have an aesthetic effect on your photography. That is where the PhotoCenter comes in for its first exhibit of 2013.
The competition was open to all: any geographical location, any subject matter, any photographic methodology. In brief, photos made on 12/12/12 of any mundane or any special event(s) that occurred in the vein of “A Day in the Life of …” series will be shown. Even a commonplace locale or event can be made interesting photographically — at home, at work, at play.
The exhibition incluides 80 images by 33 imaginative photographers who took up the challenge to show us the scenes and events that stimulated their creative vision during the 24 hours that was December 12, 2012. Several photos were timed at precisely 12 minutes after 12 o'clock, yielding a date stamp of 12/12/12-12:12.
The PhotoCenter’s annual College Student Show this year included high school juniors and seniors taking an art or photography class for the first time. All college students were invited to participate. Any subject matter and any photo medium were acceptable. College students did not need to be enrolled in a photography or art course. More than 50 images were accepted.
Awards: $500 in cash awards were offered by the Christos Apostle Charitable Trust.
