We are excited to announce our June online group exhibition is entitled “Visual Audio”! This month, we are giving away 10 rolls of Ilford Delta 3200 35mm Film (or 5 rolls of 120mm) to the winner of this exhibition! To enter, all you need to do is read and respond to the following prompt with your analog photography:

One of the greatest things about being involved in “the arts” is how they often relate to or inform one another in some way. There is a lot of cross pollination when it comes to crossing over into other genres, and photography is certainly no different. The magical combination of photography and music has always been one of most enduring and impassioned of these connections. For this months online exhibition, Analog Forever Magazine is looking for your analog connection to the audio arts, the music industry, band personas, or live music performance. These can be literal or conceptual, live or staged, or simply your interpretation of the theme “Visual Audio”. All we ask is that your images come from film or final output in the form of alternative or historical process.

The best of these images will be showcased in an online show curated by Michael Kirchoff, photographer, independent curator, founder of Catalyst: Interviews, and Editor in Chief of Analog Forever Magazine. This online exhibition will go live on our website on June 17th, 2019! Please follow the directions below to complete your submission. Good luck!  

The deadline for submissions is May 31st, 2019.

The Prize - 10 Rolls of Ilford Delta 3200!


One lucky winner will be chosen by Michael Kirchoff from the photographers selected for this group exhibition to receive a 10 Rolls of Ilford Delta 3200 35mm Film (or 5 rolls of 120mm)!

Ilford Delta 3200 is the world’s fastest black & white film with a nominal sensitivity of 3200iso. This panchromatic film is the perfect choice for any difficult available light photography conditions.

With its liberating high speed, unobtrusive grain structure and wide tonal range, Delta 3200 is ideal for fast action and low light photography including night time shots, gigs, sport and indoor architectural applications where flash photography is forbidden.

About the Curator

Michael Kirchoff works in the worlds of both commercial and fine art photography. A commercial shooter for over twenty-five years, it is his fine art work that has set him apart from others, with instant film and toy camera images fueling more than a few bodies of work. His consulting, training, and overall support of his fellow photographic artist continues with assistance in constructing ones vision, reviewing portfolios, and finding exhibition opportunities, which fill the gaps in time away from active shooting.

Michael is also an independent curator and juror for a number of organizations and galleries around the country, including Photolucida’s Critical Mass. In addition, he spent ten years (2006-2016) on the Board of the American Photographic Artists in Los Angeles (APA/LA), producing artist lectures, as well as business and inspirational events for the community. Currently, he is also Editor-in-Chief at Analog Forever Magazine, and has recently founded the online photographer interview website, Catalyst: Interviews. Previously, Michael spent over four years as Editor at BLUR Magazine.

Michael’s fine art imagery has garnered recognition from the IPA Awards, PX3,  Photographers Forum, and Critical Mass. His photographs have been published in L'Oeil de la Photographie, B&W (U.S.), Black & White (U.K.), Seities, Esquire, BLUR, Harpers, Adore Noir, Fraction, SHOTS, Diffusion Annual, and Lenscratch, among others. Michael also continues to exhibit his work domestically and  internationally, with more than a dozen solo exhibitions, and over fifty group exhibitions to date.
