Noted critic, curator, and writer Lyle Rexer will be the juror for the 2019 Photo Review Photography Competition. He is the author of several books on art and photography, including The Edge of Vision: The Rise of Abstraction in Photography (2009) and Photography’s Antiquarian Avant Garde: the New Wave in Old Processes (2002).

Thus, the accepted photographs will be seen by thousands of people all across the world and entrants will have a tangible benefit from the competition. Also, the prize-winning photographers will be chosen for an exhibition at the photography gallery of The University of the Arts, Philadelphia. Plus numerous Editor’s Selections will be exhibited in several Photo Review web galleries. Check out additional prizes below and on the competition website.

Because their work was seen in The Photo Review, past winners have been given one-person exhibitions, have had their work reproduced in other leading photography magazines, and have sold their work to collectors throughout the country.

Prizes include:
A $500 purchase prize from Haverford College
A $500 prize from Blue Flower
a Wacom Intuos tablet
a Lambert 12L camera bag from Cecilia

Julia Margaret Cameron Lecture: Saturday, April 6, 2019


‘Spirit & Beauty: The Photographs of Julia Margaret Cameron’ a Lecture with David Hanlon

Saturday, April 6th, 2019, 1:30-2:30 pm

Julia Margaret Cameron was one of the most innovative photographers of the nineteenth century. Although her visual techniques were sometimes questioned by Victorians who preferred a standardized approach to portraiture and storytelling, by the beginning of the twentieth century she was viewed as a pioneer who had developed the medium’s expressive potential.

David Hanlon is a Professor at St. Louis Community College, where he leads instruction in photography and photographic history at the Meramec campus. He has exhibited his photographs both regionally and nationally for the past thirty-five years, and spent twelve field seasons working as an archaeological photographer at sites in the Middle East and the Balkans. Hanlon is also active as a curator and a writer about the history of the medium, his essays being published in international journals and museum catalogs. His book, Illuminating Shadows: The Calotype in Nineteenth Century America, was released at the end of 2013.

Museum Hours: Wednesday-Saturday 11 am-5 pm, First Friday 11 am-9 pm
