KITCHEN - INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION

ENTRY DEADLINE - JANUARY 1

EXHIBITION DATES - APRIL, 2022

Open to all photographers internationally.

From the roadside diners to the fine dining establishments to the kitchens in our homes, our food system and relationship with food has shifted in this changing world. We look at the behind the scenes of food and what we have at home for food preparation. We've learned how to bake bread, tried new recipes and food trends, we have become reaquainted with our appliances and our cooking skills. We have many more dishes to do, messier kitchens yet more satisying and nutritious meals. Preparing and serving our meals, we go for take out, family members go out to shop for the home table — takes on the real life scenarios, and the somewhat caprecious and gritty side of food preparation. Food styling, assembled still-life shots, photographs using domestic subject matter and commercial kitchen spaces, images of people and places associated with food are what make up the images in this exhibition. All approaches to food and food related photography are welcome, submit photographs for this upcoming exhibition and represent your take on food.

AMERICANA - INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION

ENTRY DEADLINE - JANUARY 31

EXHIBITION DATES - MAY, 2022

Open to all photographers internationally.

From classic cars driving on Route 66 to the suburban sprawl of mid century homes laid out across the country to house the boomer parents post WWII, we look at the retro aesthetic of this pop culture iconography otherwise knows as Americana. We look at remnants of the visual clues harkening back to this time through photographs of suburbia, modern architecture and landscape monuments, to the lives lived in homes and towns sprawled over the land, to the five and dime stores and mom and pop joints. Let's take a look back at what remains from this time that represented purely good authenticity and when we were definitely open for business.
