Local Photographer's Work Goes to International Exhibition

Jim DeLillo is honored by peers and jurors for high-quality photography.

Oakland, NJ 08AUG16—A photograph created by Jim DeLillo in Oakland, NJ has recently been accepted into the General Collection of Professional Photographers of America's 2016 International Photographic Competition. DeLillo’s work will be on display at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, TX, Jan. 8-10, 2017. This International Photographic Exhibition is held in conjunction with Imaging USA, an annual convention and expo for professional photographers.

A panel of 46 eminent jurors from across the United States selected the top photographs from nearly 5,700 total submitted entries at Gwinnett Technical College in Georgia. Judged against a standard of excellence, just over 2,428 images were selected for the General Collection and 1,007 were selected for the esteemed Loan Collection—the best of the best. The Loan Collection images will all be published in the much-anticipated "Loan Collection" book and over 200 selected General Collection images will be published in the "Showcase" book by Marathon Press.

Titled “A Monster Awakens”, DeLillo’s photograph will be in the International Photographic Exhibition alongside other top photographic works from the competition and traveling and special invitational displays. These images constitute one of the world's largest annual exhibits of professional photography gathered simultaneously under one roof.
The photograph depicts one of artist Ricardo Breceda’s metal sculptures juxta-posed with the Milky Way. This type of photography requires long exposures for the stars and light-painting for the foreground object. DeLillo has been creating astrophotography for four years and Milky Way photos specifically, for about a year. He lectures on the subject and offers workshops and excursions to the darkest skies.
