Image as Object — The Tangible in the Intangible

Ohio University School of Art

Athens, OH

Through the means of photography and visual media, we commemorate — a moment, a place, a person, a thought, a feeling, a concept. We work to recuperate and reimagine memories, dreams and facades. How do photographs and their ‘object-ness’ suppose to memorialize that which is otherwise always in flux? What are we trying to hold onto, if anything, in our images?

Alternatives seeks submissions of poignant works that explore the artist’s interpretation of ‘image as object’, the physical manifestation of that which can’t otherwise be pinned down — the tangible in the intangible. Artists working broadly within the spectrum of image-based media, including conventional and non-traditional photographic processes, moving images and installations are welcome. To apply, please visit the Slideroom link attached below. Image as Object – The Tangible in the Intangible (2023) will be a presentation of Alternatives, a juried biennial exhibition sponsored by the MFA Photography + Integrated Media cohort at Ohio University’s School of Art + Design. Since its inception in 1980, Alternatives has achieved national recognition for its leadership in forging new definitions in the medium by emphasizing the work of photographers in the conceptual forefront of the practice.

(re-)CONNECT

We connect with people, places or even situations. Sometimes, and for a variety of reasons this connection loosens and other times it is lost. What does “reconnection” mean to you? For example, what’s the relationship and connection that a photographer can have with their subject, the act of photographing or with photography itself? How or in what ways can we reconnect with other people, places, landscapes or situations?

You can approach the topic of reconnection in both its narrow and broad sense. We are open to all approaches and ideas.

Submission is free!

Black & White

Praxis Gallery

Minneapolis, MN

Half a century after the advent of color film, black and white & monochromatic photography continues to capture our collective imagination. Utilizing tone, contrast, texture and shape, monochromatic photography strips its subject to only the most essential visual elements; revealing a sense of soul, substance and meaning – separate from the shifting sentiments, symbolism and cultural associations of color imagery.

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic works that demonstrate the fundamental qualities that make black and white & monochromatic photography an enduring, contemporary art form. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

Telling Tales

SE Center For Photography

Greenville, SC

For our entire lives we’ve been told every picture tells a story. A Single image can have a powerful storytelling impact, change the way we see, and leave a lasting impression. Often, a signature image or motif is associated with an artist or photographer or project. We’re looking for images that stand on their own, able to tell a story without supporting images.

Our juror for the Telling Tales is Blue Mitchell. Mitchell is an artist and independent publisher. Based in Portland, Oregon, he has been involved with many facets of the photographic arts.

Mitchell states “I’m nostalgic. I am deeply interested in photo and art history, yet I’m not crippled by what’s already been done, ‘cause everything has. I do not limit my photographic toolbox. I have no problems ruining my art… for its own sake. That includes film and prints… all those lovely, precious artifacts.”

35-40 Selected images will hang in the SE Center’s main gallery space for approximately one month with the opportunity to be invited for a solo show at a later date. In addition, selected images are featured in the SE Center social media accounts (FB, IG, Twitter) and an archived, online slide show. A video walkthrough of each exhibition is also featured and archived.

Possibilities include – black and white photographs with a single point of color, a red, yellow or blue monochrome, essentially any image where red, yellow or blue stands out as an important part of the composition.

The Surreal

The Chateau Gallery

Louisville, KY

We often imagine that the Surrealists worked to create profoundly weird and unconventional work as a matter of course. These artists captured images whose strangeness resulted from the bizarre juxtaposition of everyday objects, made unfamiliar by virtue of unreality. Consider the Daliesque fusion of a lobster into a telephone or the strange scenes of Un Chien Andalou. Surrealism is not simply a period trapped in the past; the surreal persists, manifesting throughout mediums to the present. How does your work transform reality into the lucid realm of the surreal? The Surreal is an international juried group exhibition open to photographers ages 18 years and older. All black and white, color, conventional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

The Life of Color

Praxis Gallery

Minneapolis, MN

Color is said to be three-dimensional because of its three unique aspects. When you seek to define a specific color, there are three properties to consider: Hue, Value, and Saturation. These properties are the building blocks of the poetic and symbolic signification of color in creative photographic expression.

Color is a powerful tool in composing a poetic visual statement and is highly descriptive in developing the imaginative capabilities of the mind’s eye. Certain colors carry a symbolic weight to them that when used in visual arts evokes certain moods, thoughts, ideas, and concepts, merely by their presence. Color creates different emotions and feelings. These reactions are rooted in psychological effects, biological conditioning, and cultural imprinting.

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that explores these implications of color as a central device in the creation of compelling photographic art. All genres, capture types, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

Carmignac Photojournalism Award

Fondation Carmignac

Hyères,

Selected by an international jury, the laureate will receive a €50,000 grant to carry out a 6-month field report with the support of the Fondation Carmignac, which produces, upon their return, a travelling exhibition and the publication of a monograph.

Although a benchmark in West Africa for its political stability and multiple political parties, the cradle of pan-Africanism must confront its proliferating open dumps—such as Agbogbloshie, where nearly 80,000 people reside. The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) has identified Ghana as one of the world’s top sites of electronic waste.
International law mobilized to limit the transport of hazardous waste with the Basel Convention in 1992, followed by the Bamako Convention in 1998. Yet no change has been implemented. Swayed by lower costs, Western Europe is one of the regions that exports the most illegal waste today—nearly 600,000 tonnes per year—despite having its own efficient recycling centres.

About 95% of electronic waste in Ghana is collected and recycled through the informal economy. Without any health regulations, this work is often carried out by untrained minors seeking to recover valuable materials, such as copper and gold. These individuals are exposed to hundreds and hundreds of harmful substances, including lead and mercury. These are not biodegradable and accumulate in the ecosystem and living beings. According to WHO (World Health Organization): “A child who consumes even a single chicken egg from Agbogbloshie will absorb 220 times the daily limit of chlorinated dioxins (environmental pollutants).”

Photography has played an important role in the life of this post-colonial society, bearing witness to daily and family life as well as revealing a political and cultural golden age in the 1960s and 1970s. It is important today that this medium confronts realities that challenges the utopia of a common world championed since independence.
