A note about our jurors and curators. Yes, we want to hang your work in the gallery and hopefully sell it to a collector. But juried shows are also about exposure. We work with the leaders in contemporary photography, the respected gallerists, publishers and photographers whom you want viewing your images. These are the individuals that can further your career.

THE INTIMATE PORTRAIt
The SE Center is looking for portraits that go beyond the surface and explore or reveal a deeper vision of the subject, showing an environmental context, capturing a telling expression, or a magical vision that does not exist outside the mind of the artist.

Tenneson is internationally lauded as one of the leading photographers of her generation, Joyce Tenneson’s work has been published in books and major magazines, and exhibited in museums and galleries worldwide. Her portraits have appeared on covers for magazines such as: Time, Life, Newsweek, Premiere, Esquire and The New York Times Magazine.
