Ed Eckstein’s Photo Book “Divided We Stand” Published By Albumen Gallery

From the recent press release, Monalog member “Ed Eckstein’s photo book ‘Divided We Stand’ offers a compelling testament to the hostile environment of the 202 US presidential election. Online PR News – 03-May-2021 – London, UK – Alongside the photography exhibition (https://albumen-gallery.com/exhibitions/ee-divided-we-standexhibition/) ‘Divided We Stand’ at London based Albumen Gallery (https://albumen-gallery.com/) Albumen Publishing has published a hardcopy photobook (https://albumen-gallery.com/books/) of the same title. The book features all photos by Ed Eckstein (https://albumengallery.com/ed-eckstein-2/) shown in the exhibition. The Divided We Stand project compellingly documents campaign rallies at various locations in Pennsylvania during October 2020. Pennsylvania – Ed Eckstein’s home state -was one of the battle states that were pivotal in the fight for the White House.”

“Commenting on the Divided We Stand project Ed Eckstein says: ‘A presidential campaign grounded in the politics of division over a toxic mix of passions and polarization. Hopes for a healing process seems right at this moment very unlikely. Sadly, Americans cannot agree on a shared reality, many are in echo chambers consuming information tailored to existing biases. Partisan warfare impels people to deny the legitimacy, even the humanity of those with different viewpoints.”

Christoper James To Jury The 2021 Photo Review Photography Competition

Christopher James, an internationally known artist and photographer whose photographs, paintings, prints, and alternative process image-making have been exhibited in museums and galleries in this country and abroad will be the juror for the 2021 Photo Review Photography Competition. Christopher is presently University Professor and Director of the MFA in Photography and Integrated Media program at Lesley University College of Art and Design in Cambridge, MA. He is the author of the widely acclaimed The Book of Alternative Photographic Processes.

The Photo Review, a highly acclaimed critical journal of photography, is sponsoring its 37th annual photography competition with a difference. Instead of only installing an exhibit that would be seen by a limited number of people, The Photo Review will reproduce accepted entries in its 2020 competition issue and on its website. 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 prizewinning photographers will be chosen for an exhibition at Philadelphia’s noted Woodmere Art Museum. Plus numerous Editor’s Selections will be exhibited in several Photo Review web galleries.
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.

Awards include a $500 purchase prize for inclusion in the Haverford College Photography Collection, one of the largest and most comprehensive college photography collections in the United States, selected by William Earle Williams, the Audrey A. and John L. Dusseau Professor in Humanities, Professor of Fine Arts and Curator of Photography, at Haverford College; a $500 gift certificate for printing at Booksmart Studio; a Wacom Intuos tablet; a Wandrd PRVKE Pack 31 Photo Bundle; a Wandrd PRVKE Pack 21 Photo Bundle; a Pelican Air 1535 Carry-On Case; a $200 gift certificate from Shades of Paper, a leading supplier of inkjet photo paper; a $200 Gift Certificate for Red River paper; a $200 Gift Certificate to Tog Tees; a 24″x50′ roll of Museo Silver Rag; a Think Tank Streetwalker V2 backpack; a Think Tank Retrospective 7 shoulder bag; a 20″x24″ silver gelatin fiber print from Digital Silver Imaging; and a feature on the Laurence Miller Gallery’s Picture of the Week email blast.

The entry fee is $35 for up to three images and $8 for each additional image. In addition, all entrants will be able to subscribe to The Photo Review for $40, a 20% discount. (Higher rates apply for non-US subscribers.)
All entries must be received by May 31, 2021.
