All Things Depth of Field
Welcome to Depth of Field
Exhibition and photographic event curated by Rfotofolio.
Art can make a difference.
INPrint 2016 This call for entry puts the focus on the final product of the artist vision, the photographic print or object, not the jpeg on the screen. Rfotofolio wants to encourage and promote the art of making the photographic print. This call for entries will be judged not only on the image, but […]
Chapter one has come to a close. . . . here is to the next chapter.
This is a powerful portrait taken by Harold Feinstein. The screen does not do it justice. Harold was a photographer whose empathy came through lens, so everyone that views his images can experience it. He is a photographer that left this world a better place by creating.
Thank you to all the photographers whose work, vision and long hours learning, creating, and practicing their craft allow us to go on the journey with them. With the click of a shutter they show us a different world. Their gifts will be here for others to enjoy long after we are gone. The act […]
Nice to Hear
“I am happy and very honored to be part of this wonderful exhibition, thank you very much. The work Rfotofolio has done with this show looks amazing. I wish I could have been there to meet all of you brilliant artists and see your inspiring and beautiful work, but I have followed the exhibition in my heart and mind. Thank you for the posts and for the beautiful book.“Frang DushajFrang Dushaj
“Although it spotlights work by established and emerging photographers on its virtual pages, “Depth of Field” is the first time Rfotofolio, a nonprofit online archive, has curated a show for a brick-and-mortar gallery. The difference between the remoteness of online viewing and the intimacy of in-person viewing clicks in instantly upon entering this attractive gathering of 104 works by 79 artists. Lush gelatin silver prints and pigmented inkjet prints are represented, along with a sampling of historical processes such as ambrotypes, hand-coated albumen prints and tintypes. The subjects run the gamut from slices-of-life and street scenes to nature studies, nontraditional portraiture and nude figure studies. A few works are muddled in their intentions — surrealism or realism? Romantic notions or cynical critiques? Yet you can’t fault the zeal for experimentation. The majority of works simply shine in a gallery setting, such as Aline Smithson’s lovely yet disorienting “Lucy in Blue” and the haunting photographic collage “Anima” by Annette Elizabeth Fournet. Joining the pack are venerated photographers such as Wynn Bullock, Susan Burnstine and Harold Feinstein. True enough, it’s a democratizing thing for photographers of many skill levels to gain a foothold on the Web; a show like this, however, reaffirms that encounters with photographic mastery lie in first-hand viewing.”Visual Art Source, Deborah Ross
“Depth of Field Artists, Rfotofolio & the people at Art Intersection, my husband could not understand why I was so thrilled & excited to be in Depth of Field, 2015 until the exhibition book arrived this weekend. I handed it to him and said maybe this will explain it. it did. He was absolutely blown away by the quality & beauty of every print & told me that now he finally got it. I wish we could have attended the opening to meet some of you & to see the work on the walls. Congratulations to every one. You are amazing artists & it is a true honor to be hanging in your midst. All my best.” Patricia BenderPatricia Bender
