Selective Focus: Ellipsis

Zach Kerola

Zach Kerola, “Cloquet Street”

“…” (ellipsis) from the Ancient Greek αποσιωπητικά, élleipsis, meaning “omission” or “falling short.”

I realize that our current theme was a somewhat pedantic exercise, but am very gratified by the varied and imaginative responses represented here. I believe that good art should challenge us, and not merely pacify us with prettiness or virtuosity. That’s not to say it should be shrill, just that it asks us to look further into what image makers, authors, poets… any artists are trying to communicate, because they do so at an often incredible cost.

Next week’s theme will be less abstruse. How about Spring (?), as in “can it really be Spring?” Send your unwatermarked, signature-less images by Wednesday at 11:59 p.m to tim @ — and remember to resize your submissions to 1000px at their largest dimension (I am not your digital tech) — along with title (if any), and URL of your website, Facebook page, Tumblr, or Flickr stream.
