Annual Phillips Mill Photo Exhibit Continues Online
“IN THE CENTER OF SUNRISE MEADOW”: This photograph by Patron Award Winner Phyllis Meredith is one of 143 images featured in the 27th Phillips Mill Photographic Exhibition, on view online at phillipsmillphoto.com/pmpe2020-exhibition.
The 27th Phillips Mill Photographic Exhibition, a prestigious, well-regarded photo show traditionally showcased in the Phillips Mill Gallery in New Hope, Pa., is in an online gallery form this year due to the pandemic.
For the exhibit, juror, Emmet Gowin, formerly professor of art at Princeton University, selected 143 images out of 1,000 images submitted from professional and amateur photographers from 13 states and three countries. Gowin is one of the greats in the history of photography and is an internationally acclaimed photographer.
“MINAS BASIN, WOLFVILLE, NOVA SCOTIA”: This photograph by Third Place Award Winner Liam Nelson is featured in the 27th Phillips Mill Photographic Exhibition, on view online at phillipsmillphoto.com/pmpe2020-exhibition.
Michael Ast won Best in Show. The second place award winner is Rory Mahon, with the photo “Mud Dauber.” Third place award winner Liam Nelson traveled far and near for his photos, from Big Sur, California, to the Bay of Fundy in Nova Scotia, where he was surprised that there were no boats tied up on the docks in the water-filled harbor. Hours later when the tide receded almost completely emptying the harbor it became abundantly clear why there were no boats. Close to home he captured winter scenes along the Delaware River from his front yard in Titusville.
Patron Award Winner Phyllis Meredith said, “I entered this exhibition because Emmet Gowin is one of my very favorite photographers. I was excited to think that he would look at some of my images. I was thrilled to be one of the award winners, it feels like one of the highest honors to know that one of the great living photographers has seen my work and liked it enough to grant my image an award. The images selected are so strong and beautiful!”
