Troche-Stapp chosen to Juror "The Human Canvas" for The Center For Fine Art Photography / by Suzette Troche Stapp

I am thrilled to announce that I will be the Juror for The Center For Fine Art Photography. More info below!

The Human Canvas
Deadline January 13, 2009

© Momento, Peter Boyadjieff

Theme: The human body is not just the vessel in which our consciousness resides, but also a canvas and a sculpting medium that is used to inspire, provoke, and sometimes offend. The Human Canvas seeks to explore the many ways in which the body can be an integral component of art. It can be as simple and elegant as the unadorned figure, or any of the almost limitless uses of the body as a canvas on which art is presented, or incorporated, from creations in fabric and textiles, body modifications, pigments, and much more.

Eligibility: The exhibition is open to all domestic and international, professional and amateur photographers working with digital or traditional photography or combinations of both. The Center for Fine Art Photography invites photographers working in all mediums, styles and schools of thought to participate in its exhibitions. Traditional, contemporary, avant-garde, creative and experimental and mixed techniques are welcome.

Juror: Suzette Troche-Stapp, a.k.a “the glitterguru” is one of the most sought-afterphotographer/digital artists today. Not only is Suzette is an award winning photographer but also the author of the book, “the glitterguru on Photoshop – From Concept to Cool”, which won the Designers Bookshelf Award for “Most Exciting New Photoshop Book of 2003”. Suzette is recognizes as one of the “Top 40 Photoshop Experts” by Wacom Inc. and has been awarded the “Guru Award” for excellence in Photoshop design by NAPP.
