Catherine Couturier is the owner and director of Catherine Couturier Gallery. Upon its inception, the gallery quickly evolved into the premier photography gallery in Houston and sits at the center of Gallery Row. Couturier reviews portfolios for organizations and festivals such as Photo Nola, Texas Photographic Society, and FotoFest, is a juror for Critical Mass, serves on the advisory council of Houston Center for Photography, and give lectures to artists and collectors alike on a myriad of subjects related to the field of fine art photography. The gallery has been a member of AIPAD (Association of Photography Art Dealers) since 1998, the most prestigious institute of its kind in the world. Catherine Couturier Gallery specializes in classic 20th century photography and contemporary work of the highest quality and also sells a wide range of rare and vintage books and publications by many of today’s best-known contemporary artists. The Catherine Couturier Gallery is committed to excellence with a dedication to the medium in all its forms, with the goal to showcase the best fine art photography available.
Whenever I am asked to judge fine art photography, be that in a juried exhibition, a portfolio review, or a submission to the gallery, one question is always going through my mind: is this an interesting photograph, or is it just a photograph of an interesting subject? Selecting the top images for Atlanta Photography Group’s Selects 2021 exhibition was no different.
My preference is always to judge prints in person, as I believe the finished product, the actual physical photograph, is what’s most important, but the image itself must first be captivating. The subject doesn’t have to be exciting or interesting or captivating on its own: the photographer must use his or her own voice to make it so. The mundane can be beautiful as in Central Library Skylight. The light can change something simple into something stunning as we see in Truth Lives in the Shadows. The abstract can be fascinating as with Burlesque Artist, Clift Hanger. The photographs can be shot on the street like Guard Dog or elaborately staged as we see with The Glamper/ Birding, none of it matters, so long as it’s an interesting photograph, not just a photograph of an interesting subject. I didn’t worry too much about having wide range of subjects or an even mix of black and white and color.
For this exhibition, I chose the images I think are best, as great photographs, no matter how diverse, will always make a great show. I’m excited to see the work in person and hope everyone enjoys the pieces as much as I do.
