PhotoLucida's Critical Mass 2010 Pre Screening Picks
Well it is that time of the Year to do the Pre- Screening of Photolucida's Critical Mass.I just started and my job is to vote YES or No and trim it from 549 applicants to the 175 finalists of the second tier.
I will try to post as many of my picks here so you can start getting an idea of the range, theme and quality that I am after.
Marché aux puces
My very first pick is the work of Christopher Raushenberg. This photo series is based on The Marché aux Puces at Saint-Ouen, an inch or two outside the city limits of Paris, is said to be the greatest flea market in the world. I really liked the series and the compositions of the subjects in it make them so surreal. The photographs also reminded me the collages and photography of his late father, the great Robert Raushenberg.This is a YES for me.
