This next Call is for you, but the memes don’t have to be about food.  I promise…

Dig deep and decode the cultural viruses that live in you: show us your dank memes. –from nonfictiongallery.com

baked, not BLACKENED

The burning of food is the only constant in my house.  It isn’t all food, but it is always particular foods –pizza crust, croutons, toast & anything else that is just supposed to just brown on the edges.  I say, “don’t burn the pizza”& Jon huffs in slight offense.  Then, 10 minutes later mumbled cursing echoes through the kitchen.  “Burn the pizza?” I ask.  “Sorry,” he responds.  Then Laughter.  Every time.  It happens every time.  That’s what makes it funny.  This next Call wants to know about your comic relief, but don’t burn the pizza.  Take a look…

“The world is so full of stress and hardship that it seems difficult to retain a sense of balance.  Often, as a photographer, one seeks out projects that are politically based, be it the environment or a statement to raise public awareness.  For our collective consciousness, it seems critical that we stop and ‘smell the roses’.  Based on this sentiment, the orientation of this theme is to seek out some visual levity.  Everyone’s perspective is unique as is their sense of humor. These images can be choreographed or spontaneous but should convey a sense of humor. I am looking forward to sharing a good laugh (or chuckle) with everyone.” –from Mara Zalove

ELIGIBILITY: Open to all artists

MEDIA: Photography

DEADLINE: May 26, 2016 (Midnight PST)

EXHIBITION:  June 5 – July 5, 2016

ENTRY FEE: $20 for up to 3.  15% of artist fees go to the charity of the monthly curator (jewelsofyouth.org) as well as the first place winner’s charity.

CURATOR:  Mara Zaslove‘s passion for photography has allowed her to express herself in a visual conversation & has interwoven her view of the world with her life experiences. Primarily, Mara’s process tends to be spontaneous.  She has a curiosity about her immediate environment and expresses this by photographing subjects that capture her fascination.  It can be the mundane, atypical or traditional but she seeks to document a uniqueness particular to each subject.  Mara’s award winning work has been widely acknowledged including being represented by bG/BGart Gallery at Bergamot Station & Hale Arts Gallery in Santa Monica.  She was a finalist in the 8th Julia Cameron Award held in Berlin in 2016 as well as having her work included in the 5th Annual Exposure Award display at the Musee du Louvre, Paris-France in 2015 as a part of the Body Collection.

SALES: All sales are conducted between the artist & buyer. L.A. Photo Curator does not handle any part of sales. There is no commission.

take two & call me after BREAKFAST

Food as medicine has been on my radar for a decade.  I appreciate the ability to attempt home remedies through food and supplements.  I am not suggesting it is easier, nor am I suggestion it is a solution for all ailments.  But, I am intrigued.  A family history of arthritis, combined with years of a slight addiction to towering high heels, has resulted in massive joint pain in one of feet.  Flair ups are completely manageable with a combination of tart cherries & massive quantities of vitamin C.  Drug-resistant pediatric epilepsy is now often treated by mainstream medicine with a ketogenic diet.  The collaboration between doctors and nutritionists is inspiring. This Call offers you the opportunity to collaborate with writers.  Take a look…

such sweet NECTAR

Pancakes are an uncommon treat at our house.  Even the best of store bought syrup shouldn’t be kept as long as the periods between pancake occurrences at our breakfast table.  So, my husband now makes our pancake syrup.  Someone suggested he substitute agave nectar for the sugar in the recipe.  Wow.  It isn’t a 1:1 substitution.  Agave nectar is much sweeter than honey or refined sugar.  I can’t handle it.  We’ll stick to the water, sugar, molasses & vanilla standard, thanks.  This next Call is just sweet enough to intrigue.  Take a look…

Yellow tomatoes abound at my grocer.  For some reason, my options are limited to uber-sweet cherry tomatoes, rock-hard-Brazilian-hot-house slicing reds or romas, trendy-but-mealy brown and entirely-too-sweet yellow tomatoes.  I like my tomatoes super acidic and red or tart, green and fried.  I know it takes all kinds, but I am looking for just one specific color of the rainbow. This Call is looking for any and all of the colors.  Pick your favorite(s)…

The girls-eat-salad debate continues. Stock photography makes it appear that women can barely nibble a leaf without laughing.  Men in movie bars disparage women who eat salads for their sexier steak-eating counterparts.  Body-shamers think women should only eat salad while movie intellectuals think kale salad is for silly hipsters. I am uncertain how gender really applies to food.  I only know that after a weeks on the road, there is little better than hand-torn greens and back yard veggies from the farmers’ market topped with a homemade dress.  My husband agrees.  And while salad may not be all about the girls, this Call is. Take a look…
