The 2014 Jazz in Motion exhibition is at Woodbine Park July 18 – 20 2014 then it will be moved to the Beaches Above Ground Beaches Store Gallery (1842 Queen St. E) to be on display from July 23 – August 9 2014.

In 2013 at the fourth annual Jazz in Motion Juried Photography Exhibition participants displayed images that best defined the essence of jazz music, jazz musicians and the audience which supports them. Thank you to our Jurors, our sponsors and all of our talented participants, the work was amazing! Last years exhibition was absolutely outstanding! We received such a positive response from the crowds that here we go again for another year! We are excited to announce we are preparing for the FIFTH annual exhibition in 2014 which will be held at Woodbine Park.

Photography and live music have an enduring symbiotic relationship that we want to celebrate. We will be continuing with the current theme of images that best define the essence of jazz music, jazz musicians and the audience which supports them. These images can originate from Jazz jam sessions, festivals or concerts which have taken place locally or elsewhere across the globe. We know that there’s an explosion of jazz and jazz festival photography out there waiting to be shared and enjoyed by all.

Join this great network now by adding your profile to our flickr site and entering your best photos into the competition for 2014. Join our Flickr network by sending in your profile, images that you feel best reflect the Jazz world year round in all it’s glory. We’d love to see your work, and can keep you contacted as the all the details for next year as the exhibition unfolds.

We’re looking forward to this coming year at the 2014 BIJF! Let the search of the best moments of jazz begin- send in your images, Today!

Re-capping winners of the 2013 Jazz in Motion Juried Photography Exhibition:


1st Place Winner of the 2013 Jazz in Motion Juried Photography Exhibition

John Davidson

John-Davidson

“Photographers such as myself have a love for traditional film and printing techniques. Even now I find myself re-visiting my film roots for part of my work. This will never fade. Yet the new technology has an attraction that alerts one to other exciting techniques associated with the medium of photography. And now the digital SLR, the Mac computer, Adobe Photoshop, Aperture Lightroom, Photomatix, NIK- have provided me with fantastic tools to create as never before. Even when scanning originals shot on film, many of these tools are used. My interests in photography are artistic and contractual. I love all of it. When I can, I shoot people and the landscape: sometimes simultaneously. Much of my inspiration comes from the outdoors and travel but not exclusively. As well as exhibiting and selling my images, I enjoy sharing my knowledge of and enthusiasm for photography with others, through teaching to full-time students at Durham College and smaller workshops.” – John Davidson

 

2nd Place Winner of the 2013 Jazz in Motion Juried Photography Exhibition

Anna Encheva

Anna-Encheva

“Being an only child I became an expert in observing the world from a very early age. Photography was my way of recording those observations. First with my fathers film camera and later with my very own film camera I obsessively took pictures of all that inspired and fascinated me. After I graduated high school in my native Bulgaria I used my university years to study and travel and be influenced by the cultures in Spain, the US, Holland and France and at the end chose Toronto as my new home and playground for my photography and art. Currently I am proud to be photographing and be inspired by the musicians and artists in Lula Lounge.” – Anna Encheva

Favourite artists: Eliane Elias, Rosa Passos, Michel Camilo, Giovanni Mirabassi, Nestor Torres and many others.

Atael has been shooting at jazz festivals in Toronto. His images have been used on the wikipedia website and on a couple of CD covers from local artists (Steve Koven, Adam Makowich). He has provided images for Arturo Sandoval’s manager.
