Judging this year’s competition is Mitchell Kearney. Kearney is a commercial advertising photographer and multimedia fine art image-maker dealing in the study of human nature, physics and the miracle of day to day living.

A fixture in the Charlotte art scene since moving from New York City in 1983, Kearney has a BFA in photography from the School of Visual Arts and has witnessed and documented many fine art projects, including the creation of Jean Tinguely’s Cascade in the lobby of the Carrillon office tower for the Bechtler family in 1991. Then, over a period of eight years, he created insightful portraits of the first 185 Artists-in-Residence at the McColl Center for Visual Arts. In 2006, he was honored to spend six weeks photographing the ten mid-career Japanese artists who were selected for the Force of Nature installation project. Michell has had numerous exhibitions of his photography-based work in the Charlotte region, including the 6th Juried Annuale at the Light Factory and his Inside Out solo exhibition of insightful portraits at Winthrop University, both in 2013. He has also exhibited at the Arti Multie Visione in Rieti, Italy and at the Camera Club of New York.
