Theme: Both Sides of the Lens: Self-Portraiture

A photographer’s most reliable subject is his or her self. By turning the camera on oneself the photographer is brought out from behind their lens, presenting themselves to the world as both artist and subject. Self-portraiture is often used to explore and manipulate identity. The photographer invites judgement and critique on not only their artistic message, but also their appearance and demeanor. For this exhibition, The Kiernan Gallery seeks self-portraits that provide insight into the artist; their stories, struggles and triumphs. 


  • Up to 30 images will be exhibited in The Kiernan Gallery in Lexington, Virginia (April 10 – May 6, 2012). Up to an additional 40 images will be selected for exhibition in the online gallery. 
  • All selected works will be published in a full color exhibition catalogue available for purchase.
  • A Juror’s Choice and Director’s Choice award will also be given.

Submit digital images by email or mail on a CD. There is a limit of 10 images that you may submit. Juror: Russell Joslin

Image requirements: JPG format; 72 ppi; sRGB color profile; less than 1024 pixels on the longest side.
