This year’s juror is D.B. Stovall. Louis Jacobson of the Washington City Paper picked D.B. Stovall to be number 5 in his the “Best DC Photography Exhibits of 2013” list.D. B. Stovall, a Washington, DC area native, bought his first camera at age 10 – a Rosko purchased for 88 cents at Murphy’s Five and Dime.  Quickly moving on to various Instamatics, an old Leica D, and finally Japanese 35mm SLRs, Stovall explored various aspects of black and white photography, becoming adept at all kinds of darkroom work by the time he entered high school.  Stovall was introduced to the view camera at the Rochester Institute of Technology in the very early 1970s and by 1974 moved on to large format (4″x5″) color transparency in a realism-based vision, which he still practices today.Since there were few good methods of getting high quality archival prints from transparencies during that time, Stovall did not pursue exhibition opportunities and eventually stopped making images entirely for a fairly long period.  He returned to the view camera and started producing new work in the mid 2000s and was able to make prints closely matching the produced transparencies using modern computer and printer technology.  Stovall started entering juried exhibitions at the beginning of 2008 and since then has been in more than 100 juried shows all over the US.  He has also had several solo exhibitions, the latest in November 2013 at the Hillyer Gallery in Washington, DC.Artist
