Meet the Esteemed Juror: Jacques Leblanc

A distinguished figure in the world of photography, Jacques Leblanc has lent his seasoned eye as the juror for this exhibition. With a legacy of capturing the very essence of Long Island since the early 1970s, Leblanc’s journey is as rich and diverse as the landscapes he immortalizes through his lens. Initially recognized for his prowess in black-and-white photography, Leblanc’s retirement from education in 2007 marked a pivotal moment in his artistic evolution.

Embracing the world of color photography, Leblanc’s transition coincided with a deep dive into the study of dreams, particularly Oneirology. In his words, “This is not the study of a dream’s meaning but rather their actual appearance.” This unique fusion of art and introspection promises to bring a fresh and thought-provoking dimension to the exhibition.

For an added visual treat,
Jacques Leblanc will also be displaying 12 of his fine art
prints in the lobby of the Southampton Cultural Center along with the main exhibit.
