Juror's Comments
In today's world that is fast paced and frenzied due to virtual connectivity and new media, there is a temporal quality to art and entertainment. Good or bad, photography has been severely influenced by new technologies and it is constantly changing and evolving.

Looking at the history of art - and the short history of photography - I can't help but wonder what history photo artists are creating today. I'm referring not so much about the tools of photography, but the actual images themselves.

What are we creating now that will be included in future photographic history classes?

For the TPS 22: International Competition, I'm interested in seeing work that has a timelessness to it - something that nods to the past, present and future of photography. I'd like to see work that challenges the observer to spend more than a fraction of time with its visual encoding, be it narrative, documentary, conceptual or just simple beauty.
