About the Juror
David Bram is a fine art photographer and the editor, founder, and curator of Fraction Magazine, an online venue dedicated to fine art photography, showcasing the work of both emerging and established fine art photographers. Fraction Magazine is now published on a monthly basis. Fraction Magazine was founded in 2008 and is currently on its sixteenth issue and has shown portfolios from more than 85 photographers. Mr. Bram has been reviewing portfolios at various events including Review LA, Review Santa Fe, PhotoNOLA and Fotofest. He was also a juror for Review Santa Fe in 2010 as well as a juror for Critical Mass in 2009 and 2010.

Post Jurying Statement
When doing portfolio reviews and looking at work online, I am always looking for that one photograph that grabs me,
and make me look deeper into it. While going through these submissions, I was doing the same thing. I was impressed with the work that was submitted and making the selections was a tough process. In the end, I believe, I selected some very fine work.

Muema's photograph is so full of energy and emotion, that I find it hard not to look at. Meg Griffith's is the exact opposite,
but the quiet and solitude of her photograph makes me want to examine it further. And finally, Stan Raucher's photograph
intrigued me on so many levels. There is so much going on in his photograph.

I thank you all for the opportunity to see your work and a sincere thank you to TPS for asking me to do this.
