Jules Maeght Gallery features the winners of the first annual All About Photo Awards(San Francisco,CA)
Opening Reception: Thursday, May 19th, 6-9pm Exhibition on view: May 17th – May 28th, 2016
The winning images of the first annual juried photography awards hosted by All About Photo
will be exhibited at the Jules Maeght Gallery in
San Francisco in less than a month! The ten international jurors (Julia
Fullerton-Batten, Sandrine Hermand-Grisel, Frank Horvat, Ann Jastrab,
Ed Kashi, Jules Maeght, Klavdij Sluban, Keiichi Tahara, Ami Vitale, and
Cara Weston) viewed and scored nearly 5,000 images for this inaugural
competition. As one of the jurors, I was overwhelmed not only by the
number of submissions, but also by the quality of the submissions. There
were so many dynamic images from around the world that it was difficult
to choose only 5 for top honors.
The grand prize winner is Julien Chatelin from France with his image from the Israel Borderline series.
Between 2004 and 2006, Chatelin set forth to create a visual fresco of
Israeli society which was published in 2008 in a 160-page monograph.
This essay explores through the prism of the young people, the
diversity, and complexity of an increasingly divided society.
picture, taken in May 2004, represents the evacuation of an Illegal
outpost near the west bank settlement of Mitzpe Yitzhar. The outpost
consisted of a single house, but when settlers were informed about the
imminent application of the court order, thousands of ''hill youth''
came from all over the West Bank to try to stop the bulldozer from
reaching the site. For about six hours the settlers opposed the border
police and attempted to stop the bulldozer by lying in front of it.
Although the tension was quite high at times, the violence remained
contained, as the stakes were merely symbolic. Eventually the brick
house was destroyed, and rebuilt the next day.

the San Francisco Art Institute who recently relocated to the Midwest.
Through photomontage Patterson explores the narrative that emerges
between subject, space and time. The work embodies various photographs
that he has taken merged with others from his family’s albums. Each
blended piece possesses its own original story, in addition to insights
about representation, fabrication, and visual language. They are stories
of perseverance, pride, struggle, life and death. They are human
stories intertwined in a majestic landscape.
from Italy won fifth place with her photograph from her ongoing series, Aboard:
a visual journey which witnesses the fascinating anonymity of

About the Gallery
Jules Maeght Gallery is a contemporary art gallery who seeks to engage
the San Francisco community by infusing European artists, young and
established alike, into a diverse, multimedia dialogue. Amélie and Jules
Maeght carry on the Maeght tradition of strong support for contemporary
art. The gallery presents exhibitions ranging from group shows based on
conceptual similarities to more intimate shows that encourage artists
to play off each other’s styles. The gallery also offers a selection of
original editions ranging from Masters such as Miró to young artists.
Maeght Gallery follows in the tradition of the Galerie Maeght in Paris,
which first opened its doors in 1945 with an exhibit of drawings by
Matisse. The gallery, ran by Aimé and Marguerite Maeght, quickly became
an epicenter for modernist artists and writers. The Maeghts had a skill
for nurturing and promoting new art and artists which secured their
position as respected and influential advocates for art of their time.
From 1946 onwards, such artists as Bonnard, Braque, Calder, Giacometti,
Léger became part of the gallery. In 1964, Aimé and Marguerite
established the Maeght Foundation in St. Paul de Vence, the first of its
kind in Europe.
