QUEST

Cathy Dutertre

Artist Comments
“Quest” is a series of ethereal self-portraits that probe the fragmented and shadowy space of dreams, repressed or time-altered memories and my personal history, in search of an elusive sense of self, purpose and place in this world.
These reflective and expressive images based on the experienced emotions of the past, present and future create visual form to an intimate journey of self discovery, one that navigates the fluid borders of the known and the unknown, the conscious and the unconscious, the real and the possible.
As a photographic journal of an individual’s struggle to define and understand their terms of existence, “Quest” is both a personal and universal narrative.

LIVING WITH PARKINSON`S

Pierre Dutertre

Artist Comments
“Living with Parkinson’s” is an ongoing cathartic project of reflective personal reconciliation with a condition that was in denial for many years. A series of self-portraits seeks to expose what is not seen by others; the physical and emotional limitations of the disease as well as the side effects of the condition and treatment.
The images are created with a duality of acceptance, a candid reveal of shameful limitations, and apparitions, as the transposition of hallucinations experienced on a daily basis, the characteristics of a condition that affects many but usually in a solitary situation and hidden process.
“Living with Parkinson’s” reveals and discloses the disease and addresses the implacable universal cycle of life faced by everyone, in a whimsical manner as reality and fantasy merge into a world of hallucinations.

We are all connected. We are all culturally distanced.

Art exhibitions are the lifeline of all our cultures; they provoke thoughts and emotions, social and human growth, and provide check and balances during challenging times. Art is essential. Walls are finite and geographically isolated, public restrictions abound. Yet, artists, museums and galleries now have access to fully customized superlative virtual exhibitions.

The Norwegian National Photography Awards (Landskonkurransen) is the country’s most prestigious photography awards. Landskonkurransen is an annual competition accepting entries from all professional photographers and students / apprentices. The photographer with the highest total score is named Norwegian Photographer of the Year. The student / apprentice with the highest score is named Student / Apprentice of the Year. The picture with the highest score in each category becomes category winners. Gold, silver and bronze medals are also awarded in each category.

The awards in the National Competition form the basis for selection for the national team in photography, participating in the World Photographic Cup – the World Cup in Photography.

History
The national competition as we know it today took its form in the mid-80s, but the competition itself has its roots back to 1927. Then, the Norwegian Photographers’ National Association (which later became the Norwegian Photographer’s Association) organized its first annual Awards Competition, with one category and six participants. Since then, the competition has undergone several changes, both in name and form, and has grown considerably. Today, the National Competition is one of the country’s largest of its kind.
