We are excited to announce that our May online group exhibition, “Compelling Dreams”, is sponsored by Lomography! With their support, we will be giving away a Classic Diana F+ Camera 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:

For this exhibition, we are looking to explore the results of photographers who push the envelope with their photography in either a technical or social sense. Viewing their photographs should take us through a portal straight to their consciousness (or subconscious) where we can be shocked, moved, and even confused by the unexpected results they achieve with their camera, subject, and process of choice. We invite you to submit two analog created images that draw outside the lines of what is expected, to create a compelling force that draws the viewer into your world. The photographs submitted can range from avant-garde experiments to documentary exposés of individuals or groups living outside of social norms. The only limiting factor to this group exhibition is your own interpretation of its theme.

The best of these images will be showcased in an online show curated by Russell Joslin, photographer and founder of Skeleton Key Press, which follows his 17-year tenure as the Owner, Editor & Publisher of the renowned photography journal, Shots. This online exhibition will go live on our website on May 13th, 2019! Please follow the directions below to complete your submission. Good luck!  

The deadline for submissions is April 30th, 2019.

The Prize - A Classic Diana F+ Camera!
