Architectural Photography

SE Center For Photography

Greenville, SC

Architectural Photography is the photographing of buildings and similar structures that are aesthetically pleasing and accurate representations of their subjects. Throughout the history of photography, buildings have been highly valued photographic subjects, mirroring society’s appreciation for architecture and its cultural significance.

As building designs changed and broke with traditional forms, architectural photography also evolved. During the early-to-mid-20th century, architectural photography became more creative as photographers used lines and bold shadows in their compositions, and experimented with other techniques, resulting in architectural photography being viewed as more of an art form.

Instant imagery

SE Center For Photography

Greenville, SC

Instant imagery has been popular ever since the first Polaroid Camera was introduced in 1948. Photographers of each generation since have been endeared to the magic of a physical photograph developing before their eyes. Whether used for family vacation snapshots or fine art imagery, the spontaneity and uniqueness of instant imagery is truly, sorry for this, a once in a lifetime experience.

What’s happening to your business, your friends, your family, your routine? How are you coping (or not)? What is the meaning of feeling ‘safe’ to you? How are your concerns manifesting? For instance, are you staying home and photographing your surroundings within, or your gardens outdoors? What is your story? What do you observe in the wider community? And, how do you show this in a photograph?

Luminosity: The Impact of Light

New York Center for Photographic Arts

New York, NY

Light and its quality is the basic element of photography. There is an iconic photograph of Grand Central Station with streams of sunlight filling the airspace as it reflects off dust particles in the air. In photography the same subject, nothing more than a snapshot at one time of day, becomes an impactful image at another. Sunsets are beautiful and midday sun is harsh. A strategically placed light can create amazing portraits; late afternoon is a world of shadow and light that warms everything it touches.

Silence

PH21 Contemporary Photography Gallery

Budapest,

Silence is always conceived against its opposites; sound, noise, loudness. Silence is strongly associated with loneliness and alienation, the unknown and disturbing landscape on the one hand, and the known tranquility and peace on the other hand. Photographically, the contrast between deep darkness and dazzling light is also decisive. After natural or social catastrophes, everything falls silent; empty cities, villages, abandoned public transport and empty workplaces remind us for the transience and fragility of humankind. Silence is accompanied by quiet activities such as contemplation and meditation, which negate the very nature of action itself. Silence is also often present in still lives, cityscapes, portraits, and many other photographic genres.

PH21 Gallery invites photographers to submit their work for our group exhibition themed Silence. We are looking for submissions from all photographers who would like to share their silence experiences with a wider international audience through the exposure of PH21 Gallery. The theme is broadly construed without any photographic genre restrictions. Indeed, we are interested in all possible creative photographic interpretations of the theme.

M. McLuhan), or again, an environment that reflects our being in the world and the fluid changes of life, but also a place where we often find traces of the past, where emotional involvement is implicit in the experience we have in it.

The Five Senses – How we Perceive our Human Experience – N.Y. Photo Curator

Dianne Yudelson (Curator) says, “Our five senses, sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch are often defined as distinctively independent processes. However, in reality, our senses work together to collaboratively interpret what many call our human condition. When I view a photograph of barefoot children playing tag, I feel the cool grass between my toes and hear the sounds of youthful glee. My visual experience of the photograph is influenced by sensory perception. Our senses activate memories which influence our perceptions. From a colorful geometric or figurative image to a poignant documentary scene our senses will be stimulated. For this call for entry, I look forward to seeing your personal or artistic interpretations of what represents or stimulates one or more of Our Five Senses.”

One must try to overcome his or her fears without suppressing oneself in fear of one’s current limitations or of the uncertainty of the future. To avoid being consumed by the heavy burden of one’s dreams, one must devote one’s energy to actively affirming and nurturing one’s dreams.

THE PERFORMER

Loosen Art Project

Milan, Italy

In the next exhibition the figure of the performer will be our gaze’s protagonist .
The gathered works will once again make explicit the role of the photographic medium, already highlighted with the experiences of the performing arts since the 1960s, in the process of creation and diffusion, as well as documentation, analysis and interpretation of the performative act.
The key element is the “gesture”, as in any type of performative performance: artistic, theatrical, choreographic, musical, etc., understood as a set of signs of a corporeal and primitive language, as cultural codes that concern behavior, through which the performer seeks contact, involvement and often active participation.
The figure of the performer is thus recalled as the author of the artistic performance but also of the athletic one, where aesthetics, balance of form, harmony of gesture become visual stimuli that involves the emotional sphere of the observer.

I think we can all agree that the election in November will be remembered as one of the most important in our lives.
 In the next 4 issues of South x Southeast Magazine we want you to show us what matters.
 Be it climate change, care for the elderly and disabled, child care, women’s rights, immigration, voting rights, tax reform, homelessness, the arts, protection of our waters, protection of our national parks, education, our food, or health care, if it is an issue that affects our lives, we want to see, and hear, your response.

The point is to give you a voice, both through your photographs and your words, to express your hopes and fears for the next four years.

And we’ll do our best to put these issues in the hands of those who want our votes.
