Over the years, as the show has grown and gained worldwide recognition, it has continued to attract extraordinary talent.

Previous Exhibitions

The 2020 Phillips' Mill Photo Exhibition was the first online show presented by Phillips' Mill. It was a spectacular, visually diverse, thought-provoking show. The show's esteemed juror, Emmet Gowin, loved the diversity of the work and the considerable talent evident in all the submissions.

The 27th exhibition of photography at Phillips' Mill was markedly different than planned. All the same, Phillips' Mill Photo was well prepared to transition the April 2020 exhibit, originally planned for a month-long showing at the Mill, to an online platform.

The committee of Mill members, led by Spencer Saunders and co-chaired by Alina Marin-Bliach, had already digitized the show.

The new capabilities allowed for a ready shift to an online venue required by the pandemic's need for social distancing.

Welcome to the show!

Our esteemed juror Emmet Gowin selected 143 images, from 1000 submissions, for the exhibition.

Congratulations to all those who were accepted and won awards. Emmet Gowin loved the diversity of the work and the considerable talent evident in all the submissions.

Please enjoy viewing the 2020 Photographic Exhibition in our online gallery. We hope you find it to be visually diverse, thought-provoking, and a pleasure to see.

Not Your Run of the Mill Photo Show

This dream has been a long time coming. The talented volunteers/photographers who have worked so hard to produce the esteemed annual juried Phillips' Mill Photographic Exhibition have unified to become something truly exceptional: a cohesive, creative group of photo-oriented Mill members.

Due to COVID-19 we have opted to forgo our anticipated juried show of prints on the wall in our converted grist mill gallery to a singular, potent force of digital imagery.

All 29 image makers in this show have a personal, emotional connection and commitment to the broad professional craft of photographic arts.

Since 1992 Phillips' Mill Photo has had a recurring theme: Photography as Art and Photographer as Artist. A core hallmark for us has always been to present the strongest of personal work. Some refine, develop and go deeper into a look or construct over decades, while others experiment with new work and regularly reinvent themselves.

For this unique Photo Show, each Artist has been invited to submit a body of work of up to eight images. Unique because very few shows foster the freedom to use photography to speak at length with the infectious visual medium. A declarative statement, a soft emotion, a composite or creation that stirs the soul or ignites a memory/dream, all wonderful in their freshness.

Enjoy our presentation and thank you for following us.
