CLOSED | Call for Entry: Online Group Exhibition - "Wanderlust” March 2019
We are excited to announce that our March online group exhibition, “Wanderlust” is sponsored by Intrepid Camera! With their support, we will be giving away an Intrepid 4x5 MK3 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:
Photographers are most often a very curious breed of artist. They do not side idly by while the world passes them over, uninterested. To the contrary, they get up, get out, and apply their vision to the people, environment, and culture all around them. They are explorers by trade - examining and learning, processing and interpreting, and presenting us all with the yields of their efforts. We look to them as navigators, steering us to the furthest reaches of our planet, and inspiring us to do the same.
Exploring our planet and all things that reside there, Analog Forever is looking to curate an exhibition born from the wanderlust that drives you to travel in search of images that get your blood moving like nothing else. Show us where you’ve been, how you’ve explored, and why your motivation to make photographs remains your primary objective. All forms and formats of photographs created with analog materials or processes are accepted.
The best of these images will be showcased in an online show curated by Alan Ross, an internationally respected master photographer and educator best known for his tonally exquisite black-and-white images of the American West, who honed his vision and technique while working side-by-side with Ansel Adams as his full-time photographic assistant. Ross was also personally selected by Adams to be the exclusive printer of the Yosemite Special Edition Photograph negatives, an assignment he has enjoyed for nearly 40 years.
This online exhibition will go live on our website March, 18th 2019! Please follow the directions below to complete your submission. Good luck!
The deadline for submissions is February 28th, 2019.
