Toyed With Show...the invitation

Here's the invitation for this year's Toyed With show at the Open Shutter Gallery in Durango, Colorado. Lots of unfamiliar names here, to me anyway. But I'm sure that I'm most likely an unfamiliar name to them as well. About half the prints in this show are "alternative" process prints such as wet plate collodion, platinum and van dyke. That surprises me somewhat, though I am not entirely sure why.
And B&W (or at least monochrome) greatly outnumbers color images as well. It's always interesting to me to see what a juror actually accepts into a show.
There are 26 images in the show by 25 different photographers. (I'm the lucky one with two images evidently.) You can see them online here with additional info regarding print process, title, etc. Just go to the "Gallery" section on the site and you'll be able to see both this year's and last year's accepted entries.
