Luckily, no one has bothered to ever install hidden cameras in my kitchen.  The images of my pretending to be Julia Child wouldn’t be great for my credibility.  But, it’s what I do when attempting something in the kitchen for which I am untrained or unqualified–like de-boning a whole chicken.  I make believe.  It makes any resulting failure sting less.  This next Call wants to know how YOU make believe…

Check out this Call for Entries from the Darkroom Gallery (Essex Junction, VT) for Make Believe. The entry fee at Darkroom is always low ($24), and they will provide free matting & framing if you work in their standard sizes. Take a look…

*Editor’s Note: If you enter, please make sure to let them know that you found the Call on We’ve got a great history with them…including Best of Show!

Make Believe


Role-play, tell tall-tales, put on your brightest costume and let your imagination take the lead. 

Images that captivate, tell a fantastical story.  The hero vs. the monster, parallel universes co-mingling, colorful characters that drag us down a rabbit hole!  Fantasy, horror, sci-fi, fairy-tale, steam-punk and renaissance inspired photographs.

Just as Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein emerged from a dream, her motley creation is considered to be one of the earliest examples of science fiction and a great novel for the ages, Darkroom asks you to produce and capture your dreams. “The whole series of my life appeared to me as a dream; I sometimes doubted if indeed it were all true, for it never presented itself to my mind with the force of reality.”― Mary Shelley, Frankenstein

JUROR: Growing up in a small Louisiana town, Andy Bloxham turned to his imagination for activity. This playful, creative approach to life extended to Andy’s adulthood, where it took form in photography, video, and writing. Receiving an MFA in photography from Louisiana Tech University, his images have appeared throughout the world in numerous group and solo exhibitions, publications, and online media.

Bloxham’s photography centers around fictional situations and events, told through the slight hint of a smirking camera.  His techniques apply the command of tools ranging from pen, paper, and storyboards, to strobe lighting and digital post-processing.   He is an assistant professor of photography at West Virginia Wesleyan College, and a faculty member at the Maine Media Workshops.
