JUROR : Marc Josloff earned his B.A. and Masters Degrees at Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, NY. He is both a painter and a photographer and brings a unique fine art perspective to his photography. As a painter, Marc was cited as one of “11 Artists to Watch,” in the 2004 edition of Watercolor Magic magazine. His photographs have been widely exhibited and he has been awarded best in show, best in color and best in black and white in numerous juried exhibitions. Marc is president of the Long Island Center of Photography. “Photography is a very gratifying art modality because it permits us to explore acutely everything around us wherever we are, in whatever way we want. We can take a hundred photographs in an hour if we please, then delete ninety-nine of them. . .but that one to cherish is worth it all.”
