RECOLLECTION -

INTERNATIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION

ENTRY DEADLINE - JULY 1

EXHIBITION DATES - SEPTEMBER 6 - 27, 2024

Open to all photographers internationally.

Through the experience of the passage of time we look back and recollect, at times fondly with contentment and desire or otherwise despondent longing. Recollection is an exhibition portraying the various interesting ways that we take photographs that elicit or display the binary of remembering and recording as a way to document recalled memories. In recollecting, nostalgia is often triggered by something reminding us of a happier time, a feeling of idealized pleasure and also slight pensiveness when we think about the way things used to be. We recollect with a wistful desire to return in thought to a former point in life, a somewhat sentimental yearning for the happiness of another place or point in time. We find ourselves opening up to an appreciation for the simple pleasures in the passage of time we call life. This will be an exhibition of photographs that show a portrayed form of recollection using various modes of image making, images of how time is interpreted when thinking about moments that happened in the past, memories that shape our lives.

Each photograph will be considered based upon the merit of individual images submitted by each artist. Series based entries are not necessary although preferred. A brief artist statement is optional.

Selected artists will have their work featured in the exhibition and online.

CURRENT EXHIBITION

GREEN - INTERNATIONAL COLOR PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION

EXHIBITION DATES - MAY 3 - JUNE 15, 2024

The color of green as a subject matter can be photographed from a variety of viewpoints, capturing images of green literally or conceiving photographs conceptually. Ranging from chartreuse to jade to emerald, the primary color of green can be approached in a straight forward manner in all of its tones, tints and shades. The Green exhibition encompasses photographs of a wide range of genre focusing on the hue of green lying somewhere on the color spectrum between blue and yellow. Green can be found in abundance on the earth in the various forms and species of vegetation, ranging from the wide open fields of grass and plant life to the denseness of forests. Also, implications of the symbolism and emotions of green can be explored. Green is seen synonymously as burgeoning, to grow, someone new to a skill, or green can be interpreted psychologically as a person being green with envy for instance, referring to currency, or green can imply environmentalism or the manner in which methods are good for the earth. The photographs in the Green exhibition features various approaches to the concept and color of green.
