ASTORIA — LightBox Photographic Gallery unveils “The Photographic Nude 2019” with an opening artists’ reception 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 9.

Fifty images were selected from 35 photographers. The exhibit runs through Wednesday, March 6.

This year’s international entries come from Israel, Spain and Hungary, along with work from around the U.S.

Congratulations to Allan Barnes of Los Angeles for receiving the Juror’s Award, as well as Victor Zamanski from Israel and Ana Tornel from Spain for receiving the second and third Juror’s Awards.

LightBox established the nude series in 2010, in part, to gain an understanding of the nude historically in the photographic medium.

This year’s juror is Renée Jacobs, a celebrated photographer of the female nude and recipient of the International Photography Award for Fine Art Nude.
