CLOSED | Call for Entry: Online Group Exhibition - "Private Document” April 2019
We are excited to announce that our April online group exhibition, “Private Document”, is sponsored by AnalogBook! With their support, we will be giving away a set of film format notebooks (two notebooks) and one darkroom book 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:
An affinity and a curiosity to those who are closest to us is an undeniable feeling that everyone fathoms. We want to get to know and understand others - and as photographers we often wish to document and investigate their hopes, dreams, and fears. We look for an insider’s view of friends, family, lovers, and confidants - and in the process begin to discover more about ourselves. The full range of human emotions are found within the parameters of these studies, and the bravery of those we hold up to scrutiny is a path to humanity itself.
This online exhibition at Analog Forever seeks to offer a glimpse, and leave an impression on viewers, with images offered that document the lives of those around us. They can be vignettes of those that peak your interest or brazen self-portraits that expose and reveal. We offer no limits to the photographs submitted, other than the fact that they are created with analog film or process.
The best of these images will be showcased in an online show curated by Ann M. Jastrab, the Editor in Chief at All-About-Photo and current gallery manager at Scott Nichols Gallery in San Francisco. Jastrab has curated many shows in the Bay Area while simultaneously jurying, curating, and organizing numerous exhibitions for other national and international venues outside of San Francisco, including the Seoul International Photography Festival in Korea, Fotofest, Photolucida, GuatePhoto, PhotoNola, Review Santa Fe, Medium, Filter, and Lishui International Photography Festival in China. Jastrab previously served as the gallery director of RayKo Photo Center in San Fransisco from 2007 until its closure in 2017.
This online exhibition will go live on our website April 15th, 2019! Please follow the directions below to complete your submission. Good luck!
The deadline for submissions is March 31st, 2019.
