My experience with pre-packaged instant food is sketchy at best.  You might find a box of instant oatmeal in my cabinet for lazy winter mornings.  But I find that some foods that are unnaturally dehydrated to the extreme never really recover, like cheese & coffee, while others thrive, like cocoa and popcorn.  I think of instant foods a little differently –preferring portable raw nuts, fruits, and even a few cheeses, best.  This time of year though, pomegranates are my favorite.  Just cut them in half, thump them with on spoon on the outside, and voilà –instant snackage.  This next Call wants your instant favorites.  Take a look…

Check out this Call for Entries from the A. Smith Gallery (TX) for flawed | an instant film exhibition.  Rediscover the joy, freedom & accessibility of instant film. Buy a camera & film used. Stretch your skill set and find out what inspires you…

JUROR:  Michael Kirchoff straddles  the worlds of both commercial and fine art photography.  A commercial shooter for twenty-five years, it is his fine art work that has set him apart from others, with instant film fueling more than a few bodies of work, both completed and ongoing. His consulting, training, and overall support of his fellow photographer and artist continues with help in constructing ones vision, producing artist lectures, and finding exhibition opportunities, which fill the gaps in time away from active shooting.
