Through the Eye of the Camera Juried Photography Exhibit

The A.E. Backus Museum & Gallery in Fort Pierce is currently hosting the 11th Annual "Through the Eye of the Camera" juried photography exhibit, sponsored by Jiffy Photo & Framing and Canon.

Vero Beach professional photographer and co-owner of Southeast Gallery of Photographic Art, J. Scott Kelly, was among three professional photographers invited to judge this year’s juried exhibit. This panel of experts also included editorial and travel photographer, Paul J. Milette, along with environmental photographer, Sean Dowie of SMD Photography.

These judges gathered on May 17th at the Backus Museum to carefully review the more than 270 images entered by local amateur and professional photographers. The entries were divided into five categories: Film; Black & White; Manipulated; Digital – Wildlife/Outdoors; and Digital – Still Life/Portraits. From the entries, 140 were selected for the exhibit with first, second, and third place ribbons awarded in each category, as well as one “Best of Show” award.

The juried photography exhibit, Through the Eye of the Camera, will be on display at the A.E. Backus Museum & Gallery in Fort Pierce until June 28, 2009. For further information regarding the exhibit or gallery hours, please call (772)465-0630.
