Worth a thousand words

2011 Photo Contest winners showcase compelling sights

by Karla Kane

As they have for the past 20 years, local photographers this spring submitted the best that their portfolios have to offer to the annual Palo Alto Weekly Photo Contest, co-sponsored by the City of Palo Alto's Division of Arts and Sciences.

And now, the judges have made their decisions. The award-winning photographers will be honored at a reception on Wednesday, June 8, at 5:30 p.m. in the Palo Alto City Hall lobby, 250 Hamilton Ave. An exhibition of the photos chosen as finalists will be shown in the lobby from June 8 to June 28.

The Weekly would like to thank the local sponsors of this year's contest: Bear Images Photographic Inc., University Art, the Palo Alto Art Center and Keeble & Shuchat.

More information, including all finalists' photos, judges' biographies and artists' statements, is available at www.PaloAltoOnline.com.

Jeffrey Lu's "Just Keep Waiting" evokes the emotional ambiguity of urban solitude and isolation which reminds me of Edward Hopper's "Nighthawks" - nice work.
