A Single image can have a powerful storytelling impact, change the way we see, and leave a lasting impression. Often, a signature image or motif is associated with an artist or photographer or project. We’re looking for images that stand on their own, able to tell a story without supporting images.Analog and digital manipulation in all its forms welcome. Monochrome or color, all subjects, analog, digital or antique processes, photographers of all skill levels and locations are welcome.

Our juror for the The Singular Image is Blue Mitchell. Mitchell is an artist and independent publisher. Based in Portland, Oregon, he has been involved with many facets of the photographic arts.

Mitchell received his BFA from Oregon College of Art & Craft where he has also taught studio school classes and workshops. In his personal work, he implements many photographic techniques including acrylic lifts, alternative processes, burnt transparencies, and other mixed media. Most recently, he has been exclusively using Polaroid films for his new work.

Mitchell states “ I’m nostalgic. I am deeply interested in photo and art history, yet I’m not crippled by what’s already been done, ‘cause everything has. I do not limit my photographic toolbox. I have no problems ruining my art… for its own sake. That includes film and prints… all those lovely, precious artifacts.”

Beyond his own work, Mitchell runs a publishing company named One Twelve, which focuses on artfully crafted photo practices. Mitchell also hosts a podcast called the Diffusion Tapes where he chats with artists, curators, and writers working in the field of fine art photography.

35-40 selected images will hang in the SE Center’s main gallery space for approximately one month with the opportunity to be invited for a solo show at a later date. In addition, selected images are featured in the SE Center social media accounts (FB, IG, Twitter) and an archived, online slide show. A video walkthrough of each exhibition is also featured and archived. Openings are timed to coincide with Greenville, South Carolina's First Fridays, a celebration of art, food and music.
