Mark Alice Durant is nationally recognized for his influential contributions to photography, including as the publisher of Saint Lucy Books and Saint-Lucy.com. Commenting on the selection process, he said:

“There was so much fantastic work submitted that it was a challenge to make the final selection. The works I did select have no common theme and are, in fact, tremendously varied in content and approach to the medium.

“The things I look for are an active imagination, curiosity and engagement with the world, and that someone is thinking through photographs. Their photographs are not just a reflection or a one-to-one representation of the world, but through their photographs, they’re clearly thinking about something. They’re exploring, they’re trying to find out something about the thing they’re photographing. It could be anything: still life, family relationships, landscape…

“It’s relatively easy to make a good photograph now because of the technology that we have, so it’s not just about good-looking images. It’s also about how you are thinking about the world through your photography. Where is the evidence of that in your work?”

The featured image is Washer, 2018 from the series Mad Habitat by Reid + Factor. Here are a few of the other images you’ll see at EXPOSURE 2019:
