MAGNITUDE SEVEN: International Call for Small Works

Manifest Creative Research Gallery

The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, presents an open call for small work, 7” or smaller.

Every year Manifest produces an exhibit of little works of art from around the world. Each iteration of the exhibit brings in hundreds of powerful yet diminutive works for our jury to consider. Inevitably this results in a gallery full of diverse, compelling, and exquisite little gems. Manifest’s patrons eagerly await the Magnitude SEVEN event each year. This annual project is one of the most varied exhibits in our season. So we are always excited to offer this call to artists to submit works no larger than seven inches in any dimension (any proportion).

Analog Forever Magazine “Private Document”


 

Analog Forever Magazine Online Group Exhibition “Private Document”

We are excited to announce that our April online group exhibition, “Private Document”, is sponsored by AnalogBook! With their support, we will be giving away a set of film format notebooks (two notebooks) and one darkroom book to the winner of this online exhibition! To enter, all you need to do is read and respond to the following prompt with your analog photography:

An affinity and a curiosity to those who are closest to us is an undeniable feeling that everyone fathoms. We want to get to know and understand others – and as photographers we often wish to document and investigate their hopes, dreams, and fears. We look for an insider’s view of friends, family, lovers, and confidants – and in the process begin to discover more about ourselves. The full range of human emotions are found within the parameters of these studies, and the bravery of those we hold up to scrutiny is a path to humanity itself.

This online exhibition at Analog Forever seeks to offer a glimpse, and leave an impression on viewers, with images offered that document the lives of those around us. They can be vignettes of those that peak your interest or brazen self-portraits that expose and reveal. We offer no limits to the photographs submitted, other than the fact that they are created with analog film or process.

N.Y. Photo Curator ‘The Window’


 

N.Y. Photo Curator Call for Entry
Theme: ‘The Window’ curated by Debora Schwedhelm

“Schwedhelm says, “The window is where it all began and so for this submission, I’d like to circle right back around to — the window.

Made in 1826 by French Inventor Joseph Nicéphore Niépce, the ‘View from the Window at Le Gras’ is considered to be the first photograph. And metaphorically, the camera can be considered a room, while the lens can be viewed as the window through which photographs are projected. The window has literally and figuratively been linked to the photographic process since the very beginning.

There are so many ways photographers can use windows in their photography and artistic expression. Open, closed, reflective, transparent, revealing, obscuring — windows can offer us mystery, wonder, possibilities, and even hope. Windows can be utilized to explore presence and reality or be a portal to our imagination. Feel free to push boundaries, be creative, and embrace your personal interpretation of the theme. Personally, I have had a long obsession with photographing windows and I cannot wait to see what you have to share.”

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.

They stand alone on hillsides creating lovely shadows. They can be tall and straight like a winter pine or bend in the wind. Limbs and branches create wonderful patterns against the sky.

In the In-Between ‘ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE’

Gravy Studio & Gallery
Philadelphia, PA

 

The vast majority of photographs we see in our day-to-day lives present idealized versions of their subject matters, often making the world seem cleaner, more orderly, and more beautiful than it actually is. It’s difficult to grasp the profound influence we are subject to within our inescapable media-diets of beautiful images that offer promises of something better.

How can photography be used to reflect on notions of paradise, desire, and fantasy?  What roles do these promises play in our daily lives, and in our current societal conditions? What’s the value of idyllic spaces? What is the cultural and personal value of a photograph that makes the world look better than it is? Who benefits from notions of paradise, and who doesn’t?  Where do we want to escape to, and what are we running from?

In the In-Between is seeking photographic work of any process that explores notions of paradise, idealization, fantasy, and escape.

‘Exposure: America on the Move’

New Hope Arts
New Hope, PA

 

Most of us lead fast paced lives.  Whether it be traveling for leisure or our daily commute, exploration and extreme sports, even fitness goals, we’re on the move.  When Henry Ford introduced the Model T in 1908, Harley Davidson in 1903, we never looked back.  The high energy pace of NYC and its subways and trains.  From snowboarding to horseback riding, ziplining to donkey rides in the Grande Canyon, what keeps you going?

We are inviting photographers of all mediums to enter this year’s ‘Exposure America on the Move’.  Think about the moment and what you’ve seen or experienced.  From dancing, motor cross, the rat race of our daily commute.  What does movement mean to you?

Analog Forever Magazine Issue 1


 

Analog Forever Magazine Issue 1

Open internationally to both amateurs and professionals, this call for entries is Analog Forever Magazine’s attempt to find, feature, and interview the best talent in the analog photography world for our debut print publication, due out Winter 2019!

We are searching for the trailblazers who shoot decades old expired film through refurbished cameras, capture images with processes invented a century ago, and invent new and creative ways to process and manipulate our mainstream film stock staples. We want to see the work created by the individuals who share our love for the sound of shutters clapping open and close and the smell of darkroom chemicals in the morning.

Regardless of your format of choice, how expensive your lens set is, or the subject matter you shoot we want to see your work submitted! There is no entry fee so there is no reason why you shouldn’t submit!
