Conversations with the Archive

SE Center For Photography

Greenville, SC

For the call for Conversations with the Archive, we are looking for work using historical, familial, or found photographs (or ephemera) to create a new visual language or expression. This reconsideration of other people’s photographs, whether it be from a family album or a dusty thrift store bin, allows the creator to appropriate, construct, edit, and sequence in order to create something entirely new–sometimes in conversation with the photographer’s own imagery, or sometimes as an artistic expression using only appropriated imagery.

Analog and digital manipulation in all its forms welcome. Monochrome or color, all subjects, analog, digital or antique processes, photographers of all skill levels and locations are welcome.

Open Show #41 Pasadena/East LA

THEME: “This Is a Photograph Because I Say It Is”

We are looking to feature a series of photographs that are not bound by the need to portray reality, but are interested in illustrating an idea, an emotion, or a mood. The photographs must have started as original film-based or digital photographs (taken by a human, not computer-generated) and then altered or manipulated in any way (mild or extreme) as to express something new (not primarily intended by the original reality-based photographs) — optimally, as stated above, an idea, an emotion or a mood. The manipulation may be achieved digitally (i.e., software, filters, etc.) or physically (i.e., creating collages, ripping, sewing on, or otherwise adding unusual objects to the print itself and then re-photographing it).

All the World in New York City

DNA Learning Center

Cold Spring Harbor, NY

Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory has opened a new science center, DNA Learning Center NYC, on the campus of the New York City College of Technology in Downtown Brooklyn. Biology lab experiences offered at the center help students and the public see themselves as scientists.

What DNA Says About Our Past and Future, a permanent museum exhibition under development, will present a hopeful message of genetics in our lives. The DNA of any two people is 99.9% identical; racial and ethnic differences acquired as we peopled the globe are, indeed, only “skin deep.”

A gallery within the exhibition—All the World in New York City—will feature photographs of the many races, cultures, and ethnicities represented by the people living today in New York, America’s traditional immigrant city. All of these people are closely related by their common DNA past.

The Still Life

Praxis Gallery

Minneapolis, MN

Still life photography, more so than other types of photography, such as landscape or portraiture, gives the photographer extensive leeway and precise control in the arrangement of design elements within a composition. Still life photography is a demanding genre, one in which the photographers are expected to be able to form their work with a refined sense of lighting, coupled with composition and design skills. The still life photographer makes pictures rather than takes them.

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that investigates the genre of the Still Life. Submissions may explore classical to conceptual aspects of the still life, photographing object arrangements that intrigue, engage or entertain the viewer. All genres, capture types, color and black & white, traditional, and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

All About Photo Awards 2020

All About Photo

La Jolla, CA

Our 7th edition of the All About Photo Awards invites photographers from around the world to submit their best work for consideration. In reference to Henri Cartier-Bresson’s photo essay, The Mind’s Eye investigates the depth and thoughts behind each image.

“To take photographs means to recognize – simultaneously and within a fraction of a second – both the fact itself and the rigorous organization of visually perceived forms that give it meaning. It is putting one’s head, one’s eye and one’s heart on the same axis”.
Henri Cartier-Bresson

Winners will receive $10,000 in cash awards, extensive press coverage and global recognition.
The grand prize is $5,000, the 2nd prize is $2,000, the 3rd prize is $1,500, the 4th prize is $1,000 and the 5th prize is $500!

Silence

PH21 Gallery

Budapest, Hungary

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 life’s, 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.

Female Sight

Praxis Gallery

Minneapolis, MN

As women “camera operators” (a 19th century term for photographers), aren’t we all struck by light?

Since the beginnings of photography in the mid-nineteenth century, women have had prominent roles as artists. The popularization of the medium in the first decades of the twentieth century met with a confluence of social forces, including art and activism, that expanded opportunities for women in both art and public life. Working in a range of styles, pioneering artists like Anna Atkins, Imogen Cunningham, Berenice Abbott, and Carrie Mae Weems forged independent perspectives that changed how we picture the world. [CMOA]

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art created by or about women image-makers, including trans-women and femme/feminine-identifying, genderqueer, and non-binary lens-based photographic artists. All genres, capture types, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

Small Works | Big Show

South x Southeast Photo Gallery

Molena, Georgia

I love small works. Whenever I visit museums, galleries, and friend’s homes I’m drawn to the small, framed image. Most times it’s a gem, a little jewel hanging off to the side, dwarfed by larger, louder framed images in the room, sometimes on the same wall. But, upon closer inspection, I find they’re usually only diminutive in size. Like looking through a keyhole, I’m often amazed at the sheer amount of beauty and objects held in such a small space. Or I”m mesmerized by the simplicity of just one object perfectly framed; small, but secure enough in itself to hold the room.

So, I’m always thrilled to announce a call for entry for Small Works. And this year we’re making it a Big Show. I’ll choose 50 images, none larger than a framed 5″ x 8″ to show on the walls of the gallery, and in the online gallery. And I’m upping the number of images to 5 per $30 fee.

I want to see a range of work – still lifes, portraits, animals, landscapes, urban and street, architecture, abstract, you name it – open up your archives and show me the best small works you have!

Our mission is to discover the best talent, promote it and spread it, because we live and breathe photography, because we know the effort, the work and the passion behind each image, the need to find and capture beauty, to find a unique moment, to interpret the reality that surrounds us. Of the will that is needed to explain a story through a reportage, and to decipher the truth that is hidden in it.

For us, photography is light, life, emotion, communication, a challenge, but it is also a purely introspective act that forces us to question the way we see the world, our way of looking at reality, imbuing each photograph with a little bit of ourselves.
