Traveling Exhibits: The Best of Alaska Positive
The Best of Alaska Positive: 35 years of award-winning photographs
By the late 1960s, the consideration of photography as an art form was an idea whose time had come. In 1970 the Alaska State Museum launched a statewide photography competition called Alaska Positive, to present to the public the best work being done by Alaska photographers. Now, 35 years later, the museum has brought out the award-winning photographs from many of those past competitions for a retrospective look at Alaska’s most famous photography show.
“The Best of Alaska Positive: 35 Years of Award-winning Photographs” features more than 70 photographs, the earliest being from 1971 and the most recent from 2004. A catalog accompanies the exhibit, illustrating the award-winning photographs, and providing short juror biographies and quotes from past juror statements.
