Juror’s Choice: Ekram Nafis – The Path of Solace

#filmisnotdead 2024

#filmisnotdead is a celebration of the timeless beauty and artistry of analog photography. This juried exhibition showcases the unique and evocative qualities that can only be captured through traditional film. We invited photographers from all around the world to submit their best analog images for a chance to be part of this exhibition. Images were selected by our esteemed juror, Michael Kirkchoff, Editor-in-Chief at Analog Forever Magazine, Founding Editor for Catalyst: Interviews, Contributing Editor at One Twelve Publishing and Co-Host of The Diffusion Tapes podcast.

Michael Kirchoff works in the worlds of both commercial and fine art photography. A commercial photographer for over thirty years, it is his fine art work that has set him apart from others, with instant film and toy camera images fueling several bodies of work. His consulting, training, and overall support of his fellow photographic artist continues with assistance in constructing ones vision, reviewing portfolios, and finding exhibition opportunities, which fill the gaps in time away from making photographs

Michael is also an independent curator and juror, and advocate for the photographic arts. He is a juror for Photolucida’s Critical Mass, and has reviewed portfolios for several fine art photographic organizations and non-profits in the U.S. and abroad. Michael has been a contributing writer for Lenscratch, Light Leaked, and Don’t Take Pictures magazine. In addition, he spent ten years (2006-2016) on the Board of the American Photographic Artists in Los Angeles (APA/LA), producing artist lectures, as well as business and inspirational events for the community, and was nominated as Photo Editor of the Year for 2023 at The Lucie Foundation. Currently, he is also Editor-in-Chief at Analog Forever Magazine, Founding Editor for Catalyst: Interviews, Contributing Editor at One Twelve Publishing, and the Co-Host of The Diffusion Tapes podcast.
