Impressions of Life- a Black and White Photography Open Call

SK Art Gallery
White Plains, New York

 

This juried exhibit is open to all black and white photographers who have a story to tell. History and countless documentations have been made with black and white photos long before color film was created. Looking back on these, we see stories that needed to be told. Some were shot with cameras using wet collodion developing. Throughout time various cameras from the Pinhole, Hasselblad, Leica, toy cameras, Holgas, and Dianas have been used for black and white.

Black and white images reveal tone and contrast, shape, shadow and highlight, texture, form, depth, and light quality. These are qualities that challenge the photographer in black and white. We are looking for depth of the story, unique vision, the quality of execution, and composition.

Show us your best in a black and white story. You may use alternative processes such as tintype, wet plate collodion, salt prints, cyanotypes, etc. You may be avante-garde or use a documentary or photojournalistic approach as long as the photo tells a story.

Juror: Brigitte Freed was the dark room developer and printer for Photojournalist Leonard Freed’s photographs. She has curated and published 6 books on photography including: The Italians, March on Washington, Made in Germany, and the Berlin Wall. She now deals with Leonard Freed’s one million negatives curating exhibits with galleries, universities and museums all over the world as well as coordinating with Magnum Photography on a daily basis. She has worked with Stanford Library, the Brooklyn Museum, the Library of Congress and the Museum of Modern Art among others.

Barbara Galazzo is the Curator and Exhibitions Director at Rockland Center for the Arts in Nyack, NY. She has owned and directed two galleries, Gallery 66 NY and Brooklyn Artisans Gallery. As an Arts Promoter she was responsible for creating the ArtFull Living Designer Showhouse and Fashion As Art along with curating over 80 exhibitions.

WATER

PhotoPlace Gallery
Middlebury, VT

 

Our relationship with water is complex. It sustains life. It’s a source of beauty and wonder, and is itself an environment for a staggering variety of life. It can be devastating in its destructive force, and equally devastating by its absence. But that does not diminish the joy and serenity it can provide us in its many forms. For this exhibit, we seek images that describe our relationship with the many facets of water.

We are very pleased that Elizabeth Avedon will be jurying and curating this exhibition. She will select approximately 35 images for exhibition in the gallery, and 35 for our Online Gallery. The recipients of the Juror’s Award and the Director’s Award will each be entitled to an online  portfolio review by Ms. Avedon.

All 70 selected images will be reproduced in the exhibition print catalog and remain permanently on our website, with links to photographer’s URL. Gallery exhibition June 20 to July 13, 2019.

‘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?

FOTOFILMIC JRNL OPEN CALL


 

The theme for this first JRNL edition is ‘Sub-Lands: Material Lyricism’. The call invites works exploring the postmodern landscape and adhering to contemporary photography’s shifting ground when describing environments, be they natural, social, or fictional. The JRNL theme ties into many of contemporary photography’s preoccupations inviting fresh perspectives on the mundane, the dystopic, the overlooked, the transitory, the in-between, and the sublime as it relates to the photographic landscape.

JRNL is FotoFilmic’s new quarterly newsprint publication. Each edition is associated with a monthlong JRNL Open Call juried by an influential editor/curator of photography, and publishes 12 photographers (1 spread each) around a common theme. The Guest Editor also awards the JRNL cover to 1 of the 12 selected photographers (cover + spread) and writes a few paragraphs of feedback commenting on all the works presented. At launch JRNL copies will be available online, as well as distributed internationally at select partnering venues in Canada, USA, Australia, Europe and Asia.

JRNL is all analog: all images submitted must have been captured either on film (any format or type) or using other analog imaging processes (paper, glass, alternative processes, etc.). No digital captures are accepted. Works shot on film, then scanned and postedited are all eligible to be entered.

JRNL strives to present photography that is current and reflective of today’s critical focuses and societal narratives: work entered must have been thus created after January 2010.

MONO – KROMTAIK

Juror | Sandrine Hermand-Grisel

Half a century after the advent of color film, black and white &monochromatic photography continues to capture our collectiveimagination.  Utilizing  tone,  contrast,  texture   and   shape,monochromatic photography strips its subject to only the mostessential visual elements; revealing  a  sense of  soul,  substance  andmeaning – separate from the shifting sentiments, symbolism andcultural 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 subjects, genres, capture types, black & white and monochromatic, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

Portraits Without Faces

PH21 Gallery
Budapest, Hungary

 
Portraiture emerged as one of the most prominent genres of depictive media early in the history of the visual arts; tacit or explicit rules, conventions and cultural expectations have always influenced the ways in which artists approached the genre. Photography is no exception. Numerous different and characteristic styles of portraiture emerged throughout the history of the medium. We usually assume that faces are necessary components of portraiture; we may, however, learn just as much about the character, the personality of a person by looking at images that depict other parts of their bodies, show us the objects or places associated with them. Not focusing on the face may open up a new dimension of interpretation. Our Portraits Without Faces exhibition is dedicated to this challenging divergence from the more conventional approaches to the genre.

Encouraged by the creative responses we received last year, PH21 Gallery invites photographers again to submit their work for a group exhibition themed Portraits Without Faces. We are looking for submissions from all photographers who are interested in this theme, and who would like to share their work with a wider international audience through the exposure of PH21 Gallery. The theme is broadly construed; submissions of all kinds of portraits without faces are welcome. Indeed, we are interested in all possible creative photographic interpretations of the theme.

WOMEN’S STORIES (UNTOLD) – TEXT AND IMAGE

Midwest Center for Photography
Witchita, Kansas

 

Many women have a different story, though, the nature of each story is founded in similarity; women being tired of having to carry the secrets of their stories. Instead, courageously deciding to share their stories with the world. This exhibition seeks to give a voice to those who have survived the trauma of tragedy. Whether feeling marginalized, treated unequally, being simply ignored and overlooked, harassed, physically assaulted, verbally abused, or having experienced profound loss. These stories should be told, stories of experience in a domestic setting or in the workplace. Not only stories of dark experiences but the experiences of triumph and strength. The exhibition will consist of photographic imagery and/or words. Both photographs and text pieces will be printed and exhibited on the gallery walls. The stories shared can range from subtle expressions to bold statements, of your own experience or of someone you know who has experienced such tragedy. The gallery space acts as a platform for women to use their voices through images and/or text in an act of healing and strength.

LA Photo Curator: Dreams Curated by Emma Powell


 

Emma Powell says: Dreams are the point at which the surreal world of the imagination meets our reality. Artists often find inspiration in the mystery of the unconscious vision, as well as aspirational hopes that can seem just as impossible. Photography is a wonderful outlet for interpretation of a dream, enabling us to break them down, watch them play out, and discover new worlds inspired by them. The exploration of photographic materials and approaches also allows for a wide range of possibilities when it comes to depicting the feeling of a dream-state. For this exhibition, we are looking to see how you visualize your dreams. From the murkiness of a lost memory, to the clarity of a waking dream we are looking for your individual interpretation of this theme.

They are built and used by humans with a certain intention or ideology. They are places where people meet, events take place, stories are created. Interior photography, even in the absence of any character, reveals more than what is represented, inviting to wonder what happened or will happen inside, but also outside of the frame.

Pick up a camera for the first time and odds are the images taken will be in full daylight.  Learn about sun glare, flat light, shadow…..  But then your world expands as you explore opportunities from the rest of the 24-hour day from DUSK to DAWN. That time, from that bewitching hour when it isn’t quite dark, through the night, to the early blue semi brightness that envelops your world in morning, provides huge opportunity for spectacular images.

Capture the softness of light at dusk and at dawn. Take long exposures of the moon and stars in the sky.  Create night photos of lit office buildings, headlights in motion, streets, houses etc. and find a wonderful subject where a black night sky provides a dramatic background. First and last peeks of sunlight can provide some amazing opportunities as well.

‘An abstract photograph draws away from that which is realistic or literal. It draws away from natural appearances and recognizable subjects in the actual world. Some people even say it departs from true meaning, existence, and reality itself. It stands apart from the concrete whole with its purpose instead depending on conceptual meaning and intrinsic form.’ John Suler

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic works that explore the world through an abstracted lens; utilizing elements of color, light, shadow, texture, shape and line to express meaning outside of traditional representational and documentary styles of photography.

WOMEN BY WOMEN

Southeast Center for Photography
Greenville, South Carolina

 

The history of photography has a long tradition of representing women as subjects but has less to say about women as artists. Today, the roles of women in photography are both behind the camera and in front of it. Who understands women better than women? The female perspective offers an important view of the many facets of womanhood and womens’ role in society. This exhibition seeks women photographers who explore and celebrate the myriad ways that they render female-identifying subjects.

Our juror for Women by Women is Kat Kiernan, the Editor-in-Chief of the photography magazine Don’t Take Pictures, as well as the Director of Panopticon Gallery, in Boston, Massachusetts.

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.

About Future

Loosen Art Project
Milan, Italy

 

Take part in the Group Exhibition in Rome, Italy. 2019

FREE ENTRY Photographers are invited to submit 1 to 3 works addressing the theme

“Future” as a concept connected to the world of ideas, the ones which envisage the events, that invent new realities – fantastic or science fiction, or those that if adaptable to the real world, through the means and will to implement them, end up shaping the environment in which the living being is immersed.

It is particularly in this sense that artistic practices (or activities that give rise to sensory experiences through aesthetic products) have always played a fundamental role in the development and progress of civilization.

In the next exhibition entitled “About Future”, we will collect works that are able to offer new visions on the future, through expressive methods that engage both the traditional use of the photographic media and that of digital manipulation.
