ArtAscent: Abstract


Abstractions are all around us. Ideas can be abstract; existing as an idea, feeling or quality but not having a tangible existence. Some conversations can be abstract, vague and theoretical and not based on particular examples or facts. And of course, there is abstract art which evokes feelings without trying to realistically represent the appearance of people or things. Abstract art, like poetry, offers a fragment of a mysteriously familiar narrative without directly revealing it in a realistic way. Reveal your most ABSTRACT thoughts.

We also encourage you to research the list of curators with whom we are partnering with for this issue. Each curator will select two photographers from the submissions to feature and interview for the printed publication.

Fifteen curators. Thirty photographers. This issue is pure collaboration. The final result will be a beautiful, hand-curated issue of the best contemporary photography in existence today.

L.A. Photo Curator: Call for Entry: ‘Nothing Special’ with curator Bree Lamb


Bree Lamb is a working artist, editor, and educator based in New Mexico. She is the Assistant Editor at Fraction Magazine, Project Manager for Fraction Editions, and Part-Time Faculty at New Mexico State University.
Lamb says, “From the spontaneity and unpredictability of street photography to the artfully crafted still life to the happenstance urbanscape and far beyond, photographers have long been able to create powerful, beautiful work drawing from the banality of everyday life.
How do you make something compelling out of nothing special? This question has become compounded as the ubiquity of image-making and image-sharing has reached at an all-time peak and is steadily growing through various social media outlets. In a time when we are sharing, “liking,” and viewing more images than ever, how are you seeing and capturing the world around you?
This call is looking for well-seen images of the everyday – the benign, the boring, the overlooked. I’m curious as to how you view the world, and in particular how you capture the subtle, in-between moments, people and spaces that are such a large part of our daily lives. Whether found, staged, or manipulated, all subject matter and methods of capture are welcome.”
20% of all artist fees go to two charities a month. They’re split between the curator’s favorite charity and the first place winner’s favorite charity.
Lamb has chosen the Union of Concerned Scientists for her charity.
(Practical solutions to some of our planet’s most pressing problems—from combating global warming and developing sustainable ways to feed, power, and transport ourselves, to fighting misinformation, advancing racial equity, and reducing the threat of nuclear war).
